I'm not a scrapper BUT I've made a LO :)

Hi sweeties!

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!

Supplies list:
Papers: Fabscraps - Vintage Baby Stork, Bazzill -  dark grey cardstock, Inkido - black corrosive cardstock.
Letters: Chipboard (I - tusen takk Trine), 3ndypapir - grungy alpha stamp (tante's), Thickers - foam (favn), Making Memories - mini shimmer alpha (finner du alltid) & Lilibee Design - ABC Stickers (trygghet).
Ink: Distress Ink - Weathered Wood & Stormy Sky, Archival Ink - Jet Black.
Tools: Tim Holtz - distress tool, Prima - distress tool, Martha Stewart - Swirling Lace edge punch, black pen.

Thank you so much for stopping here today!
Take care of your self and each other!
Hugs, Lena Katrine

Denne er helt nydelig, og selvfølgelig stemte jeg på denne på Ski-treffet!

Beautiful layout, Lena! I wish I could find the time to do some more of my scrapping, but there's just not enough hours in a day and far too many photos! LOVED your contributions to the Whimsy Stamps magazine - amazing! Thanks for the inspiration! Lisa X
