Evolution 2

Hi there everyone!  Since I'm on a blogging roll, might as well keep going.  In my previous post 'Evolution 1', I mentioned this series of upcoming posts presenting some kind of 'before and after' layouts.  For more details, go read the post :)

So here is layout #2 I made during my first time taking the Scrapbooking Techniques #1 course series in 2011.

Based on an original layout created by Josée Lalonde (SEM)

The goal in making this layout was to learn how to use border punches and find the right paper to enhance our photos.  This might seem pretty simple, but for scrapbooking beginners, or those who don't have it in them to combine colours, this can be a challenge.  We also learned how to cluster our embellishments.

My sweet little Alyssa has just turned 2 weeks old on these pictures.  looking at this layout bring a lot of fond memories... isn't it what scrapbooking is about?  Absolutely!

So this time around, I made layout #2 about my son's 8th birthday.  Here is the layout I made for this same class: Call me MJ.

Based on an original layout created by Josée Lalonde (SEM)

My son Nicholas likes Michael Jackson's style very much.  So when he received the Michael Jackson's Experience Wii game from his big sister, he started dancing like MJ.  Good memories and great laugh.

Since this layout is all about fun, I used big chipboard letters that I sanded and embellished with baker's twine.

I used these cute bottle caps for a boyish look and embellish the layout!  Aren't they neat??

I hope you liked this post.  Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping!
