3rd Birthday – Layout for the first SYAO2 Challenge at Paper Secrets

The first sketch for SYAO2 at the Paper Secrets Forum has been posted and I signed up to participate this round. It’s a progressive, weekly challenge that continues until 1 scrapper remains and the grand prize is a $75 gc to the Paper Secrets store. (sign ups are over for this challenge, but you can still sign up for the progressive card challenge which has a $50 gc grand prize).

Now that Matthew is turning 6 next month, I’m finally scrapping his birthday pics from when he was 3! LOL From the list of supplies, participants are required to select 4 out of the 8 listed and I used 6 of them. The supplies I used are twine, 3+ buttons, 3+ flowers, rubons, raw corrugated cardboard and staples. We’re also required to pick 1 technique out of 3 to incorporate into our design. I selected 2…stamping and embossing (the word birthday in the title). Here’s my take on the challenge:

Materials: October Afternoon Hometown and Daydreams pp
OA rubons
OA Modern Homemaker buttons
OA rubber charm
Jillibean Soup corrugated cardboard shapes
Twine from the Twinery
My Mind’s Eye Lush 2 journaling spots
