Layout a Day #1

by Lain Ehmann on October 2, 2011

Whew! After three months of the MotherLOAD over at Big Picture Classes, and in the smack-dab-middle of prepping for True Scrap, there was no way I could handle a layout a day (LOAD) challenge this month. That’s okay — my darling ScrapHappy family members stepped up to the plate and are leading us on a 31-day journey of their own devising. It is so much fun to be on the receiving end of their amazing creativity! I get to participate (to the extent I can) instead of planning the whole thing. It’s kind of like having the kids cook dinner — but way safer. :)

On Day One, we were supposed to do our “typical” scrapbook layout. Here’s mine.

I am a day late posting this, but I still wanted to get it in here!

This is stereotypical me for several reasons:

  • Single photo on 8.5×11 page.
  • A lot of cardstock and a bit of patterned paper.
  • A bold title (complete with DIY “e” in “priorities”).
  • A little bit of bling.
  • Dimension through the Thickers and pop-dotted star cut from the patterned paper.
  • And of course a chuckle-worthy conversation transcribed from Callie. :)
  • Oh, and it took me about 30 minutes. That’s me, too!
Yup, that’s me. :)

    Love it and most especially the DIY “e”.  I love makin’ things work!

    Love your style, Lain.  How do I get the prompts?  I would love to attempt this.  I know I would never get a layout completed every day—I’m the world’s s-l-o-w-e-s-t scrapper.   I think it’s wonderful that your ScrapHappy followers are stepping up to the plate :-)

    Just going through my emails now and checking out with you have been up to Lain.  I love the page and have friends coming over to scrap tonight so this has giving me my idea to scrap tonight if that’s ok.  I am mainly working on 12 x 12 pages so I’m sure I will be able to adapt it from the A4 size. 
    As I’m new to your ScrapHappy followers can you tell me where to on join in, if thats ok.
