The Take 5 Challenge is really fun. Just pick 5 (or more) items from the list and include them on your layout. I used the color red, the color blue, hand journaling, large title, layers, something metal, circles, and fussy cutting.
Here are some details. If you know my work, you know I adore monsters on scrapbook pages, and whenever I see them, I buy them. These monsters are from Fancy Pants Be Different collection from several years ago. The speech bubbles were cut out of a Studio Calico paper.
Large title was one of the Take 5 items, which isn't hard for me to do. Since I scrap 8 x 8, "regular" sized stuff is often big for my pages. These are old Heidi Swapp chipboard letters that have been in my stash forever.
Some more shots of the Fancy Pants monsters. Adding googly eyes made them even cuter.
I thought I'd add a bit of spiral border punch for added interest.
I hope you'll come join this or one of the other challenges (there are about 20 each month) over at Paper Issues. Add your layout to the Paper Issues Facebook group for a chance to win a gift certificate to the shop. Use my code Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off your entire order! How cool is that!
