Yet Another Page in Allie's Scrapbook

Still trying to do at least one page for Allie's Scrapbook every week (have to do two this week since I fell behind this last week). I found another great scrapbook challenge called Once Upon a Sketch so this is for that challenge as well as the Stashbusters Challenge on SCS. The Once Upon a Sketch challenge has the best inspiration words: "You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough." This works well for Allie's whole scrapbook! She is so living well in her first year of college! This picture is of her friends supporting her Sorority sisters in a dance competition. I have one line of journaling on the front and several lines on the back explaining the event and the girls in the picture. They didn't win the competition, but per Allie they did an awesome job. I love the posters they made - such creative uses of their Sorority name. The Stashbuster requirements are:

1. decorative scissors
2. brads
3. buttons
4. a piece patterned paper
5. some stamping with those wonderful old stamps you may still have but haven't used for awhile

I can't believe it, but I have decided I like scrapbooking as much as I like making cards - I thought that would never happen!



  1. This is a gorgeous page Nancy, I love the texture and your beautiful roses.

  2. Another fabulous page Nancy, great pic and embellishments.

  3. Beautiful page Nancy. Love the photo incorporated into the page.

  4. Awesome page, Nancy. You are having so much fun with the scrapping. I haven't done that in forever but loved it when I did.

  5. Beautiful page.
    Thank You very much for playing along with us at OUAS this month :-)

  6. SO earthy and rustic and pretty and feminine at the same time.

  7. So pretty to do a layout onto burlap. Give a rich earthiness to your layout. Fun photo and beautiful flowers. Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month. Please load your layout onto our OUAS FB page for another chance to win a prize.

  8. I am so glad you found our challenge! This is awesome - that hessian looks sooooo fabulous! And the big flowers - MWAH! Thanks for joining us at OUAS!!!

  9. Fabulous page! Love all the burlap and the bold pops of red.

  10. Oh lookie here. Another burlap/natural looking spread. Yeah-I think we have a connection - this is fabulous. It looks so exquisite with the red flowers. I love how it just perks up the page. You are coming along with the scrapbooking. I am so into making albums now. It just takes so long. But I think if I persist, I will get faster as the pages will come together when I have more experience under my belt. I am learning so much. Like not to use sticky tape in an album. Must use Scotch Branch Liquid glue to keep things together!!!! lol
