020714 Week One of Scrapbook Mythbusters LOAD 214

Three times a year I get to indulge my creativity & get my scrap on every day all month with Lain Ehmann's LayOutADay challenge. This month's theme is busting all of the scrapbooking myths we live with. Every day we are given a unique prompt to stretch us in new directions. It is a lovely community of all levels of scrapbookers who generously share their work in a private online gallery & give each other lots of love in comments & a lively discussion board.

Week One in Review

Day One: Less than perfect photo
 Used my February CKC kit - a great help on LOAD months to help me scrap more quickly.

Day Two: The small things
A quiet moment while Chloe was here for Christmas in January. Used my kit again.

Day Three: No title
I reeeeally want to add "Still Crazy" upper right & "After All These Years" upper left!

Day Four: Limit your time to 30 minutes or so
My motto? "Let the patterned paper do the work!" 
Used my kit again to add the pink ticket, little banner & yellow ruler plus the title treatment.

Day Five: Use old product
Not even sure how old that background paper is!

Day Six: No words
I love how this turned out! I think I will add a 6x12 page that talks about the mega-Winter we have had.

Day Seven: Scrap in a location that is out of the ordinary for you
Used my kit again & scrapped on the sofa with an ottoman in a supporting role.

My scrap muscles were certainly rusty but I am beginning to get into the rhythm of LOAD & am loving seeing so many old virtual friends. I want to try to tell more stories this month & am hoping that the prompts will lead me in new directions. So far I have been able to stay on track & follow the prompt each day but if I get "stuck" I will do a few of the challenges from Whimsical Musings.

Gotta go - the new prompt should be posted! G'nite all :~D


  1. Gorgeous layouts Leslie although I think "Outtakes" has to be my fave. I'm really enjoying my first LOAD :)

  2. It was a great first week and you showcase the prompts and your take on them so perfectly! 7 wonderful layouts and I agree with everything you say about our wonderful community!

  3. You did really well to produce so many gorgeous pages - those prompts certainly get the creative juices flowing! LOVE that first page - what a brilliant way to record a photo shoot!
