Inspired by Pinterest...

I'm loving all the awesome scrapping ideas at Pinterest and decided that I really needed to try this folded circle technique that I saw. For a step by step tutorial, check out my post on the SEM blog.

Here's my layout:

February's SEM Sketch Challenge

This month at Scrapping Everyday Miracles we're having a Sketch Challenge based on this sketch designed by Tracey Gregory. Her style is a lot different than mine, so at first I was little worried on how I could make this work with my style. But then I just realized that if I used the basic shapes and placement, I could just apply my own clean & simple style to her layout and make it work.

This is what I came up with! The SCRAP TWIST was to use distressing. So instead of paper distressing (shown by Tracey in the sketch), I used ink distressing and inked around most of my shapes. 
Love the new Ali Edwards stamps from Technique Tuesday that I was able to incorporate! And the fun bling from My Minds Eye.

SEM "Home" Challenge Layout

The Main Challenge over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog this month is "Home is Where the Heart Is". We're supposed to scrap about the place we call "home". And the scrap twist is to use a tag or journaling block. 

 My home is wherever Pete and Ellie are...
and here is my layout:
