This month's challenge at Scrap Our Stash is to use a tag on your scrapbook layout. Easy peasy, right? We're also challenging you to put YOU in your layout too, so that might make this month a little more challenging. You can do it! Who better to tell your story than you, right?
This year's school picture was the starting point for my layout. I pulled paper from my stash that I thought matched my shirt pretty well. That turned out to be more challenging than I anticipated! Since I'm a teacher, I thought the background (from Scholastic) was a nice fit. Instead of cutting off the zip strip at the top (the part that looks like spiral notebook paper), I cut off a half-inch off the bottom of the paper and left the strip attached.
The roses on the bottom right corner and stamped lightly on the tag are from the Close To My Heart January stamp of the month, Happy Valentine's. I stamped my title from the Old World Alphabet (which is retiring soon). The Colonial White rosette ribbon and purple sparkles are also current, but I think everything else is retired.
The dark blue stickers are from a collection I won several years ago, so it fell really good to actually use some of my stash!
Now it's your turn to scrap your stash! Create a layout with a tag, and then join us over at SOS. I hope to see your creations this month too! Come on! I showed you mine! Now you can show me yours. ;)
