Wholly Scrappin' in April

This is my last assignment for Wholly Scrap!  I can't believe my six months are up already!  Denise gave me some papers this time that were a true challenge for me, but I am so happy with how the layouts turned out!

The first paper was a big clock...what to do, what to do?  After a few decisions and a few changes of my mind, I decided to actually do a layout about myself.  I very rarely do that, but was excited to have good photos of my "day job" as a band conductor, and I wanted to use them.  This is from when I was the guest contuctor at the Southern Maine Music Festival a few weeks ago.  It was an INCREDIBLE experience and I was so honored to be a part of it.  The bottom photo flips over to reveal some hidden journaling about what a meaningful experience it was to have my colleagues entrust me with their best students.  Truly amazing!

This one was a paper put out by Creative Imaginations.  The subject to scrap was an easy one to figure out, but the acutal use of the paper was tricky.  I really liked the end result, though!  I really wasn't comfortable displaying my son's vital information (full name, date and place of birth, etc.), so I decided to cover up that part of the paper and make a title block out of it.  I used my cricut for the main title and loved how the Stamped Cartridge perfectly complimented the style and theme of the paper.  I also really liked the area to put my journaling.  It was kind of fun to write it as a "witness statement" rather than just journaling.  My son, however, was horrified that I was not only going to scrap these photos, but hang them in a store and post them online!  Oh, the torturous life of a scrapper's kid!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you get a chance to stop by Wholly Scrap! in North Hampton, NH, you definitley should!  They are getting in fabulous new papers and products all the time!
