LOAD Day 1

Well I did it! My first layout of Load is done. I can already tell I am going to be creating in the evenings and perhaps having a few late nights. Now if only I had a DVR to record my favourite shows I would be all set. For the May LOAD it will be all about Defining my style. I am so excited to do this since I am not even sure what my style is.
For our first challenge we were supposed to create a layout that we love. Use photos we love, paper we love, embellishments we love...basically create something that we feel comfortable doing and not try and go outside of our boundaries. I seem to like doing the nice and easy layouts with not a lot on the page. I went through my scraps of paper and picked out some fun colourful scraps to go with my blue cardstock. I wanted to showcase the photos since I just love spending time with my family and especially love taking the kids to Niagara Falls every year. We always have a great time there. I cut circles out of my blue cardstock and placed the patterned paper under my cardstock and attached it with pop dots to create a bit of dimension. I also loved using the circle as my main embellisment. Simple but I think the patterned paper adds that pop to the page.

So here is my first layout of LOAD! YAY!!!!!!


  1. Your layout really lets those pictures shine. You'll love LOAD, it's very addictive to get so many pages done. Yaaaay for you!

  2. Good start, Jen! Love that shade of blue.

    1 down, 30 to go!
