AAM Scrapbook Challenge: My Happy Place

Hi all!  Are you ready to add to that All About Me book?  I know some of you create these pages to one day make up a book that will document some of the facts of your lives and also your hopes, dreams, interests and even personality. Other’s make pages just because it’s a fun topic and have no intentions of ever making a book. Some of you scrappers post your AAM pages here at DD (thank you) and other’s feel that some of the journaling in their pages might be a little too private to share. No matter what category you fall in, I feel that AAM pages are not only fun to create, but they really help us get to know ourselves better and actually have therapeutic benefits, too.

This month we’re going to create a page about our Happy Place.  Whether it is a physical place, a place in your mind, or one that you hope to have one day, put it on paper (digitally speaking). ;)  You can use photos of your Happy Place, or do a collage of things that would be your ultimate happy place or simply journal about it.

To get the ball rolling, Brenda, Jana and I have created pages that we hope will inspire you to make a page of your own (whether you plan to make an AAM book or not). And, Katie has provided a link to a couple of freebies that you can use if you’d like.  :)

Brenda journaled about her happy place which happens to be “right in her own backyard” (no pun intended).

Brenda used Cathy Zielske’s Layered Template No 127 and Katie’s Framed Brushes and Stamps No1 to create her page.

Jana’s page is a fun mix of pics from what might be the “happiest place on earth.”

Happyland-copy

Jana used these supplies for her page:  To The Sea Kit, Counting Days Layered Templates Part No1, Arctic Whites Paper Pack No3, Thicker Inked December Brushes and Stamps No2, Title Lines Brushes and Stamps No6, Metal Clip Assortment, Readymade Banners: Rainbow No1, Everyday For the Win, Monthly For the Win, Best Trip Ever, Inspiration Remixed No2.

My page is about a place I frequent at the end of each week with a friend. We’ve both deemed it our happy place.

AAM_HappyPlaceBlog

My supply list looks like this: Brielle Add on Paper Pack, Gesso No1, Calne Kit, Catching Rainbows Kit, ARTpack Boom No1, Corby Kit, Finley Kit, Tidewater Kit, Blendable Template No39.

We had a lot of fun with these pages and hope you have fun with your AAM page, too. If you feel comfortable sharing your AAM page please post in the AAM Gallery.  Remember if you use all DD products for your page it qualifies for the rewards program so post in the July Challenge Participation thread as well. Happy Scrapping!

Symmetry…and then some! A Saturday Scraplift Challenge

The dictionary defines symmetry as “regularity of form or arrangement of parts on opposite sides of a plane.” In the gorgeous page Debbie West created for the new Home Décor challenge, she created a lovely symmetric photo arrangement. Then she stepped it up by adding carefully selected elements to add lots of interest to her symmetric arrangement. I really like the way the bird and title extend out in different directions. Isn’t her addition of a half-frame line perfect?

Home_Decor_Challenge

Carol and Aino took inspiration from Debbie’s layout and created two adorable pages that start with symmetry and get creative from there. Carol (carolee) started with the MOST adorable photos of the sweet new addition to her family. She added a wonderful selection of soft little elements and a great diagonal background paper to add lots of interest.
