It's Saturday so that means another new layout so share!
This week I am playing along with the journaling challenge at Noel Mignon. We simply had to create handwritten journaling lines on a page. Simple, right? Yes! It's something that I do a lot of the time anyway.
For this project I used the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit, the "Project Life" style kit for April from Noel Mignon. I took on the challenge this month of using this kit on traditional layouts and other projects.
Here is my page:
Have a great weekend and check back again for a new challenge and some fun with the May kit from Noel Mignon.
Here is my new layout for this week using the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit from Noel Mignon:
For this month I got the Daily Diary kit to play with but instead of using the kit in a pocket page format I will be using the product on traditional layouts.
The color scheme for this kit is quite different from the pink flowery one last month but it goes so well with this picture of Aimee and her grandparents on her baptism day. It is sweet for me to scrapbook pictures of my father-in-law now since his passing. It makes me sad to see pictures but reminds me of so many beautiful memories that we have.
Our challenge for the week was to "Cut it out." For this I simply used a circle punch to cut a round hole in the 2"x3" card on the bottom left of the page and added sticker heart to the center.
This page, just like the last two, were created using the "Heart of Gold" classic kit from the Noel Mignon kit club. Our challenge this week was to create an interactive element so I used the hearts on my page to add some hidden journaling.
Back in November we got to take a family trip to Austin, TX for Sarah's level 5 State gymnastics meet.
We'd never been to Austin, so we were excited for our little adventure.
Because Sarah didn't compete until later in the day we decided to do a little bit of sightseeing in the morning on the day of her meet. We went to the State Capitol builidng, had a tour of the inside and the grounds and also visited a Texas history museum closeby. It was perfect because Sarah had been studying Texas history. Being able to tour the capitol and museum were a lot of fun than just reading about the events in a history book.
My project for Noel Mignon this week features a few pictures from that trip:
This layout features the Heart of Gold kit from Noel Mignon and this week's challenge was to use flowers on our project. I am typically not a very flowery person and I struggle to use flowers on pages without them looking too gaudy but I liked these little monochromatic jeweled flowers in the February kit.
I used a variety of papers on this page, some florals to go with the week's challenge and others to ground the page and give more variety. I tucked a chipboard frame under the corner of one of the pictures, tucked a bow under the edge of the flowers and added a few gold enamel stars around the page.
