Becky's Party ~ Build a Page.

Thanks to all who weighed in on my workshop card for this weeks workshops... I was still having a bit of a block for tonight's workshop for my good friend Becky.

Sometimes scrapbooking can be overwhelming in the 12 x 12 size. Today I'd like to show you a way to build your pages that doesn't seem so daunting.

One of Becky's guests called me today to ask a question.. While I was racking my brain what to do tonight. She said that her sons birthday theme is going to be the old west! Instantly I had ideas on what to do.... So, all the guests at tonight's workshop will make the very pretty vintage share from earlier this week. and this 6x6 page.

Becky's little boy at the playground makes an awesome "wanted" page, with him behind the bars! So funny! I used a bit of twine and a mini clip to make the lasso in the upper left hand corner of my page... My goodness, I'm happy with this one!

Next ~ at the workshop, I'm going to quickly show how to build a page. Using random images from the same set, I stamped a background on 12 x 12 paper. I added an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of burgundy on top of that (and didn't need to cut anything ~ isn't THAT cool?). Then I matted another 5x7 and and cut a journaling block out from scraps and stamped the 4 corners.. A little ribbon, and a punched star, and this is ready to go.... Are you ready to try a build a page??
Here's the build a page!
