LM 327 - Ribbon, Washi or Paper Strips

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "stash busters," using up our stash.  This week's challenge is to use ribbon, washi tape or paper strips.

I have been working on my album from my trip to Disneyland with my BFF last January.  I absolutely love this photo of the two of us with our snacks at the park.

Confession: I got a Mickey shaped ice cream bar just so I could take a picture to use in my scrapbook.  Haven't you ever taken a photo specifically to go with scrapbook paper you like?  I absolutely loved the red background paper with the Mickey ice cream on it.  LOL

January Stick it Down Double Page Layout

I am super excited to be joining the design team at Stick it Down.  This is the double page layout for January:

I decided to scrap some photos from my road trip in October.  We went to Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine.

In Boston, we stayed at the Park Plaza, across the street from the Boston Public Garden.  We loved the "Make Way for Ducklings" statue, since we read the book as a child. Here's the layout I created using the sketch:

LM 325 - Punches

This month at Lasting Memories, we are having "stash buster" challenges!  For this week, pull out your punches (or die cuts/ephemera if you don't have punches)

I have been trying to re-organize my scrap room and my punches are boxed up right now.  So I used my Cricut Explore and created this page to showcase my 2015 Christmas Card.

It was inspired this layout by Melanie at Courtney Lane Designs.
