November Challenge at Scrap Our Stash

First and foremost - make sure you check out the Scrap Our Stash blog to see my original post!

I have been super busy figuring out how to make friends out here in Ohio. I think I've found the answer...stalk anyone at work who even mentions any kind of craft until they finally agree to hang out with you! It's this kind of resolve that has resulted in a couple of good opportunities to hang out with some new people and impersonate a socially functional person!

Most of the time though, I hang out at home with the hubby and spend a lot of time baking. Why baking? 1) I love to bake! 2) My craft area has been a disaster ever since we moved to Ohio! It was clean once, then I started going through our remaining boxes from the move and giving things away on FreeCycle. It turns out that my craft desk is the dumping ground for the few items we're keeping. Well, it's finally clean now, errr, was clean! I got it all prettied up just in time to catch a glimpse of Sketch 3 over at SOS! It all went downhill from there!

Here's the lo (It's a Disney one! Woo hoo!) and all the deets from the original post:

When I saw the sketches, I knew that I had the perfect moment to scrapbook! These three photos are from our trip to Disneyworld in February and I fell in love with the castle. (Unfortunately, I don't think the hubby would like a book filled with castle layouts!) I knew I needed to make it into an 8x8 which is why I modified the number of images, but there was something else that struck me.

While creating this layout I just knew that I was going to need the perfect "Thickers" to give my title the right, I made my own! I Used a previous Frugal Friday tip that drew me to the SOS Blog! I chose my favorite magical feeling font (It's a Sizzix font called Sunset) and some fun, silver, glittery, self-adhesive foam and created a custom title for my page. The remaining elements are cut from self-adhesive metal that I colored using my Copic markers. In the end, I ended up with a truly homemade, cost effective, memory capturing page! Perfect for someone who just received their first student loan bill in the mail, no?

If you haven't had a chance yet, pull out those crafty supplies and play! There's plenty of time to get in on the November challenge!


  1. I really love this layout Stephanie! The different colors you made the Castle are awesome! Being a Southern California Mom, I love everything Disney :)

  2. @Denise - Thanks for the sweet compliments! I didn't edit these photos at all, these photos were taken during the light show that happened before the fireworks. Pretty cool, huh?

  3. Oh how pretty! Love that the stars near the journaling match your colores! So pretty!
