Just-A-Scrappin Design Challenge 2

Here we are again! Another design challenge! I am so thankful to be part of this team of talented ladies at Just-A-Scrappin'. They really inspire me to delve deeper into my brain and get the creative juices flowing.

This time around, the challenge was called Vacation Time. The only constraints we had was to use only blue, green, white and brown. Immediately, I thought of a beach scene... but then I thought that I should stretch out of the immediate idea zone and see where else that would take me.

This is what I came up with:

I decided to do a scrapbook layout digitally. Scrapbooking is where I got started in paper-crafts. Only recently did I start doing cards. I guess you could say that scrapbook layouts are my comfort zone. :)

All papers and embellishments are from the Creative Memories "Earthy" Digital Power Palette and the "Earthy Outdoors" Digital Additions. The word "Summer" is done with Edwardian Script. The layout was completed on Storybook Creator 4.0 also by Creative Memories.

I hope you draw some inspiration from this! See you soon!


  1. Really nice LO! I love the tree branch worked in at the top and can not get over how adorable those little hiking boots are :)


  2. This is a great layout Nicole!!! I love the colors, they go so good together and the actual sketch of the layout is fantastic!


  3. I love this page, I have a Boy Scout in the family and when I saw what you created I thought of him. I love the idea you came up with to change direction and place your heading down the side of the page instead of accross the top. Go Girl. I am going to try that idea. Great page!
