Scrapping Out Loud! blog hop!

Taking flight

Hello friends! This week's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud is up! You are required to use oversized embellishments and alphas on your page. We all have such embellishments right? Or perhaps you could make them? So, put on your creative thinking hats and get cracking! But hey, not until you partake in the Scrapping Out Loud ! blog hop!
Here's where you start: 1. Scrapping Out Loud blog

Leave a comment at each of the blogs so that you can be entered into the drawing to win a RAK!

My layout, Taking Flight, features my nephew, O, in a photo taken in April 2009. I used Poladroid for the photo. My oversized embellishments are naked chipboard pieces from Fancy Pants...I used patterned paper from Graphic 45...inked the edges with distress ink in black soot, then added a layer of crackle paint in Rock Candy for an awesome texture...some handstitching in a contrasting thread colour for added interest...bling and journaling with a white pen. Glitter chipboard letters are from American Crafts.

So leave me a comment and head back to the Scrapping Out Loud blog. Good luck! :)
