My state scrap page--------------

I have been collecting pictures that I have been taking of my state Pennsylvania for some time.  I only have a few good shots but I keep most that I take.  In the scrap page I did today I displayed the favorites I took of 2011.  1 was done outside my home others are taken while I was on trips. 

I will be entering this into multiple challenges.  The first two being for color The ABC challenge and The spotted chick I will not tell a lie, I never would have used my kraft papers if not for finding these challenges.  I hate (well used to) the kraft look and was actually considering tossing what I owned.  Now that I used them I am eager to use more of the color, its fun to work with!

I am also entering it into Crafts and me challenge, AND for fun challenges they both challenged the world to use circles and that is exactly what I did! I love the overall look of the circles with the kraft. It was fun to play with and my scrapbook colors were happy to be used.  I went ahead and plain free handed my journaling letting in little mistakes. The look of the page, I think, allows me to have that harsh black journaling that other pages sometimes do not allow.  (PS this is only the 3 rd page of my life that I have HANDWRITTEN the journaling. I hate my hand writing)

This is a worse photo, but a better photo of my photos :) I am unable to refind a link online of this scrapbook layout I used.

  5. Great photos. Love the design of the layout too.

    Thanks for playing "more then one circle challenge" at For Fun Challenges. Hope to see you tomorrow when our new challenge is posted.

  6. I love your layout. What a wonderful idea for those one-off photos I have of the city. I personally think your handwriting is great. DH always reminding me that my handwriting may not be perfect but it reflects me and is therefore more interesting for him and the kids to read. Just food for thought.

    Thanks for joining us at For Fun Challenges.
