It's a Big Day

I love the Freaky Fast Friday challenges at "THE SCRAP ROOM BLOG"    I haven't done one in a couple of months but was glad to work on this one.    A lot of cuts this month but I love the outcome. How I usually go about this challenge is to cut the sizes for the challenge from a piece of plain white paper and then start laying them around on my desk in different arrangements until I find something
I really like.     I knew I would use a single picture for this one but then I decided it would work well for a 5x7 picture.    So I printed this one of my newest granddaughter ready to head out to her first day of daycare after Mom got to stay home with her the first 3 full months.    She worked up to the morning she went in labor so had the full 3 months afterwards at home.

What is fun is that tomorrow is National Scrapping Day some blogs have already started celebrating and that includes  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  they have a new challenge everyday this weeks that combines a challenge with another blog with their own added twist.   Today was with the Freaky Fast Friday challenge and their addition was to use striped paper.   So that is what I did with 3 of my lengths I cut for the challenge.    I wanted a little brown in my layout to pull the brown on some of the letters on the biggest piece of paper, because my other two patterned papers I used pulled colors from the letters too.    So anyway that is what I used for my stripped paper was the brown.
