Little Red Wagon # 225 - Anything but a Card

Hello everyone it's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge over at Little Red Wagon.

This week Jan is setting the challenge and she is asking to see anything BUT a card!

So what does that leave you? Well as long as you are getting creative with paper you have a lot to choose from; including scrapbook pages, bookmarks, tags or even an altered project of some sort.

For my non-card project I went with a layout. I attended my first crop on Saturday and going in I really didn't know what to take or how much I would complete. After finishing the day I did manage to finish three layouts. I think that's pretty good!

Using the Elle's Studio Penelope line I created a layout of my oldest daughter (she was two) enjoying a Valentine's chocolate cake we baked for my husband. As you can see she really enjoyed the cake.

I couldn't decide on a title, so I cut up one of the branding strips on the bottom of the 12 x 12 paper that had all these fabulous phrases. They seem to work so well describing these pictures.

The "Love" paper clip is from Freckled Fawn. It came in a great treat bag I received for attending the crop. We were given the challenge to use 4 items from the treat bag on one of our projects. I was so excited this clip worked well with the colours in my layout. The other items I was able to use included the red wash tape, the tiny red heart in the bottom corner and the kraft hearts which I punched out of my treat bag.

I cut additional hearts from a second sheet of this pattern paper and attached it with foam adhesive. It gives a bit of dimension to the layout, and helped work around the image on the paper that was only partially covered with my chosen layout design.

I hope you will join us this week over at Little Red Wagon for our "anything but a card" challenge. While you're there please check out the fabulous creations the other Girlfriends are sharing. Don't forget to link up your project back at the Little Red Wagon blog.

Have a super crafty day.
