And happy early start to (Inter) National Scapbooking Day!! Or NSD - which is just a whole lot easier to say.
I am so excited to finally be starting our NSD activities - we've got 3 days worth of challenges on the CTK Facebook Fan Page and I really hope a bunch of you will play along! Feels like we've been putting this together for so agesss so I'm excited to finally how it out there haha ;)
Tara and I are starting the party with a super fun Sketch Challenge. Who doesn't love a sketch?! Always a fun and easy way to get a layout done.
You can see the sketch on the Facebook Fan Page and I've used the Malibu Main kit for my page which looks like this:
I've switched a few of the elements around on my page but it's not too far off the original! I love those Maggie Holmes gold puffy phrase stickers in the main kit - the script font is oh so gorgeous!
I started my page adding the patterned paper strip on the LHS (to match the sketch!) - then I added a few mist splatters on the page - I went with a blue to tie-in with the cake photo.
Once they were done I created a few layers underneath my photo using the patterned paper, pink tulle and one of the die-cuts.
I popped my title on top of my photo and it fits perfectly on my smaller 6x8 page.
I typed my journaling up on the computer again then tucked it underneath my title on the bottom left. Stamped the date on the top right and popped a few gold hearts around and it was done! Super easy page to put together because of the sketch!
So there you go - first page shared for May and the NSD CTK Challenges! Boom ;)
Now don't forget that we are also running a fun little bonus competition - all you have to do is visit all of the DT's blogs or Instagram posts, collect their Blog Hop Bonus Word and write it down. Then pop back to the CTK website and collect the daily word from there. Once you have all 23 words, email the list through to Trina and you go into a chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the CTK Store! SO EASY!
Oh I guess I should tell you my little word....it's "Australia" because well, it's where I'm from and I figured why not ;) I wanted to use chocolate ripple cake but that's technically 3 words. If you don't know what chocolate ripple cake is then Google it! You're welcome! ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a super fun weekend and I'd would dearly love to see you joining in on all the NSD challenges we have going on (plus there are some fun prizes to be won!). Take care, Em xo
