This is a scrapbook page I did awhile back on Splitcoaststampers.com for a mini VSBN challenge. It won the title of "Noteworthy Recognition". I was so excited to win the award, because it was the first time I ever won anything for my work. If you've never participated in a VSBN challenge before, its basically scrapbooking on speed. The participants are given specific challenges that have to be completed in a number of HOURS or days over the course of a weekend or week. I've never done the weekend VSBN's because my weekends are usually too filled with family events and I just don't scrapbook THAT fast. But I have participated in the challenges where they at least allow you a week or two to finish. That's more my speed! LOL!
Now, onto the details of this page. The 'look' of this page is very much the style of what the trend is in the scrapbooking world: Mixing up designer papers, alphabets, journeling, etc. I've heard some scrappers refer to it as the 'graffiti look'. My page is more 'toned down' by the orderly picture layout and therefore has less 'graffiti style' to it. A true 'graffiti style' would have pictures, embellishments and designer paper thrown all over the place with no organized look to it whatsoever. The paper I used for this page came from a pack of papers from 'Magnolia' which you can mix and match. I used 2 different alphabet sets in the title: one is 'Doodle Alphabet' from Stampin Up! and the other is a mini alphabet from 'Image Tree'. The word 'Fun' was cut using my cuttlebug and cuttlebug alphabet dies. The pictures are of my daughter and her friends having fun at a college banquet.
Have a great day!
