Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

On the Eighth Day of Christmas...

Apron Strings Designs gave me a challenge...LOL. This one was to use 8 photographs on a page. Now - if you haven't been here before, I will tell you that I scrap in a 9x9 size. Photos are normally 4x6...see my dilemma?!?!? Took some creativity (and that is what it's all about, isn't it?) and here it is.
I used the Smaller Than a Breadbox kit from May, 2007. Loved the colors in this one. These are all different pictures of my daughter. The circle in the corner was a punchout and says "smile".

I solved my 4x6 dilemma by going into the local CVS and making the photos 2x3, punched them out with my circle punch and then used my QK Circle Cookie Cutter dies for the layering circle and my Nestability scalloped circles for the bottom layer (all available at All the papers (except the white cardstock) came from the ASD kit.

It did come out cute if I do say so myself! (sorry for the glare on that one photo)

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you soon. Be sure to come back soon - I will be featuring creations from the Mosy Scrapper January "Phoebe" kit.

That is a great layout. What a fun page to make and that is great to get several photos scrapped at once. Great challenge!
