ODBD August Scrapbook Challenge

We're in the second week of the August Our Daily Bread Designs Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook Challenge.  With the start of the new school year right around the corner, we decided to have some fun playing with numbers.  This month's challenge is to create a layout of any size using at least one number, one embellishment and Our Daily Bread Designs stamp.  You can use a number in your title, your journaling, as a page element...wherever your creativity takes you.  However, dating your page does not count as your number.

For this challenge I created a 12 x 12 layout, using a photo of my Dad and 3 of his friends at his 80th birthday party in January of 2009.  My Dad is the 3rd from the left in the photo.  I used a number in my title, in the strip to the left of the photo, in my journaling, and along the side of my journaling ticket.  I used a scripture from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 2 to accent my page. My embellishments are vintage buttons and a Tim Holtz Ornate Bookplate.
