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.
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts - Carnations, Lilies, Open Paper Roses 20 mm, 15 mm & 10 mm, Gypsophilas on stems, Self Adhesive Rhinestones, Lace & Metal Corners, velvet ribbon, transparent butterfly & hackled doilies (inherited from my beloved grandmother).

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