A Little of This

Recently Shimelle Laine held an online scrappy weekend of challenges to inspire us with layouts created with her Best of Both Worlds Kit.  I don't have a kit at this stage, however she opened up the challenges to everyone.  I just love Shimelle, she's the first online scrapbooker that really inspired me, and I love how passionate she is about this hobby.  I also admire that she has made a full time job in the scrapping industry!

I decided to play along with her Scrapbooking In Triplicate challenge, which required grouping embellishments in threes.  

My layout is another one with photos from my kids and their cousins playing in the Autumn leaves this year.  This one focuses on my son and the fun he had.  I started with papers from a Studio Calico kit, and then I added in the Pebbles cards, wood veneers, doilies, and had stitching over some plain vellum.

I'm loving the texture that the Amy Tangerine hand stitching kit adds to my layouts.  This ampersand was perfect as I needed to tie the two Pebbles cards together.

I got creative with this grouping of 3, and wanted to emphasis the white arrow on the card with the two additional cork stickers.  I love these brads from My Minds Eye too!

My groups of 3 embellishments include: 3 areas of ink splatters, 3 brads, 3 doilies, 3 arrows (one on the card and two cork stickers), 3 wood veneer stars, 3 strips of washi tape, and 3 cork <'s.  It was lots of fun, and I love the determination in Sam's face in the top photo!

Thanks for looking
