Wow! That was hard!

So, I found this challenge blog.
It's a movie challenge blog.
It hurt my brain.
I like the torture! :)
This week's challenge on Cinema Saturday is to do a card/layout based on the movie "Dear Frankie" and using a map. I did it! I used red as the background for the layout because when I watched the trailer it was the one color that stood out time and time again! Also, the map is recycled out of a NYC Guide Book, perfect for the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge LAST WEEK. Oops! But it does work for this week's Pollycraft Challenge of sparkly things. Yay for glitter!
It was hard for me to get everything about two Broadway shows onto the two 8x8 spread but I think it turned out well. I was going to use a tiny clothes pin to hold all of our tickets but I decided that a pocket would be better because it would allow me to do some journaling on the pages. I can't believe that I've gone from hating journaling to making it an essential part of my scrapbook layouts! Oh, I'd also like to note that I did TWO pages in March! Woot!


  1. Love the layouts! They look great!
