1ST DAY LAYOUT
This is my latest Red Carpet Studio layout. The theme was "Independent movies" or movies not made by a big studio. So in the spirit of independent films which are typically low budget and not filled with special effects, we were to create a clean and simple layout. No frills; just the scrapbooking essentials. So for this layout, I used We R Memory Keepers "Hall Pass" double sided paper, a 5x7 picture of my girls on the first day of school, my Chestnut Roan cat's eye ink pad, letter stickers, adhesive, and that was it. If you haven't tried one of our challenges yet, I encourage you to try this one. I know that I sometimes get bogged down in trying to make grandiose layouts for every event I scrapbook. And when I get all frustrated when I feel like my page is lacking something, I stop and try to remind myself that I'm documenting the life of my children. In 30 years, they aren't going to care if they had sparkly beads and 3-D embellishments on their pages. I'm not saying never go all out on a page.....that's one of the most fun things about this hobby. But sometimes, it's okay to be clean and simple. And this challenge really brought this home to me.
