First of all - I'm not a scrapper in the word of making layouts...
But with that said, I took a class in March this year, held by Trine Hansen, where I made 2 LO's...
It was fun, but I haven't made any more since then - until now :)
Last weekend when I was at the craft crop event in Ski, there was a competition,
to make a single page LO with a minimum of 3 pictures,
5 different fonts in the text, and handwriting.
I thought it was a fun way to challenge myself, and decided to give it a try :)
I was soooooo surprised, humble and happy, when I actually won the competition!!!!
This is a layout with pictures of my nephew Benjamin and myself, taken 5 years ago, when Benjamin was a newborn. I don't usually like pictures of myself, but this is a picture that I really love :)
The text says something like this:
In your auntes embrace you'll always feel safe
The handwriting is lots of words, that recounts my feelings and thoughts related to this picture.
A special thanks to my friend Maya, who helped me come up with the title, and to all of you who woted for my LO at the competition in Ski - thank you so much!
