Scrappy Friends Challenges

One of the things I've decided to do this year is get back to scrapbooking just for the fun of it.  No special album or event I'm trying to get finished, just picking a photo(s) I like and scrapping it "just because".  I haven't participated in any challenges in quite awhile, but when I saw the January Scrappy Friends Challenges,  I thought why not give it a shot. I combined 2 of the 3 challenges ... Rochelle's This or That Challenge and Kelly's January Mood Board Challenge.

Rochelle's This or That Challenge was to use either twine or ribbon on your layout.  I choose to use twine, which I added to the bottom of my page.  For Kelly's Mood Board Challenge, I was inspired by the snow pictures and the color scheme of the wedding photo on her mood board.

I also found a Sequins or Glitter challenge this week on the  Use Your Stuff  Challenge Blog .  I think sequins added the perfect finishing touch to my page.

Here's my completed layout.  The photo is of my dad and me on Christmas morning 2015.  It's hard to believe that he celebrated his 87th birthday 3 weeks ago.

Thanks for stopping by today.
