I couldn’t wait to scrapbook this photo of me cuddling my baby boy, and I love the photo so much that I wanted to use some of my favourite scrapbook papers with it. But I couldn’t choose which one. The problem was solved by the Sarah’s Cards Ltd Blog – I spotted their August Challenge to use 5 different patterned papers on a layout. Cutting up 5 of my favourites was a bit scary at first, but then I realised it meant they’d last me for more projects!

Papers used: WeRMK 72 & Sunny ‘Summer’, ‘Scattered Clouds’, and ‘Sunkist’
                    WeRMK Madame Royale ‘Catherine’
                    American Crafts Abode ‘Oak Ave’
                    Cosmo Cricket Togetherness ‘Elements’

I actually ended up using 6 patterned papers if you count the Cosmo Cricket elements (‘Life is Beautiful’ and the journaling spot). The page looks quite bright and busy with all these colourful patterns, but that suits me!              

I love the little bird sticker (from Tiffany embossed stickers by WeRMK) and had to have him perched at the top of my page:

I gave the page a little bit of extra texture and dimension by coating a chipboard bracket with yellow paint, then Sarah’s Cards Crackle Glaze, and finally green paint, and added it under the photo:

The page makes me happy when I look at it, so I’d say using a lot of patterned papers worked this time at least! x
