5 things

I really enjoyed the papers in this month's kit. I loved the rich browns and blues, plus the copper accents. I was reading Creating Keepsakes this past month and they had an article about the 10 pages that you should have in your scrapbooks. This really hit home to me. I always do the major holidays, birthdays, vacations, etc but I haven't been doing many pages about how I feel about things or about everyday things. So I decided that I would do a page about the 5 things I love about each of my boys. I left plenty of space for journaling so that I can record my 5 things!

I decided that I would use some Copper Stickles to help pull the letters together with the copper in the paper. I think it really worked well. For this title I went outside of my comfort zone and mixed fonts. I really like the way it came out. Also, I put some Glossy Accents from Ranger on the Thicker letters that came in the kit. I thought that it gave the letters some needed dimension for the title.

Don't forget about the DT challenge! Pick up the papers and our page map and get creating~ we love to see what you come up with!

You know, we all forget those little things - - our intentions are good, but unless we document them, they fade from our memories. I will definitely devote some time to recreate your layout/idea here. Thanks!
