The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge #61

Want to throw off those Monday morning blues? Well why not get creative and join in with us at The Memory Nest's Make It Monday Challenge? Remember it doesn't have to be a scrapbook page, cards are more than welcome and this particular sketch lends itself easily to a card.

And didn't I have fun putting this page together! I have a mass of digital products that I use far too little so decided this was the perfect opportunity to give them some love alongside my traditional paper supplies.

The digital elements of my page are the two photos and the mats behind the smaller photo. The large photo was my starting point and I reduced the opacity of it before placing the smaller photo and paterned mats on top of it.

I printed the digital part of my page, placed it on a 12 x 12 patterned paper and then added the title using 3D thickers. I really like the look of the two different alpha packs used together and find this a brilliant way to stretch alphas as they begin to be used up - you know the one where there's always just one letter missing for the word you're trying to spell!

Alphas: AC thickers, Woodland & subway
Paper: from my stash
Digi: class freebies from Jessica Sprague Digi 5

Have you already seen the rest of the DT creations at The Memory Nest? Pretty good aren't they? So your turn now, looking forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks for dropping by today, I really appreciate your time. And keep crafting!
