The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge #80

I'm wearing my scrapbooking hat today and have my DT page for The Memory Nest's new Make It Monday Challenge to share with you. Here's the sketch:

And here's my page. This was so simple and quick to put together using paper and cards from Simple Stories Legacy and Sweater Weather collections. I chose a bright SU patterned paper for the background to lift the colours of the rest of the supplies I used which could have looked a bit sombre otherwise. I added an arrow, a heart and a trio of enamel dots to the first horizontal section.

This will be the opening page in my 2017 album and the message on the journalling card pretty much sums up exactly why I want to scrapbook. How many times have I said if only I'd written it down, taken a photo, listened more carefully ....... so now I do!

All I've done is add a couple of arrows and some enamel dots and a word sticker to the middle section. Oh and that typewriter card is the piece trimmed off from the square card above it - it started out as a standard 6x4 card.

The bottom layer has some textured number stickers, more enamel dots and another arrow.

Papers: Simple Storis, Legacy; , patterned paper
Embellishments: Simple Stories Sweater Weather; MME, Now & Then enamel dots
Numbers: AC thickers, patchwork
Dies: Xcut, arrows

There's a lot of elements to fill on this sketch ad I look forward to seeing how you create with it. Be sure to pop over to The Memory Nest to check out the rest of the DT pages, loads there to inspire you!

Thanks for your time today, I greatly appreciate your visit.  And keep crafting!
