New Do'ed

I finally did a layout for a challenge. My craft crush, Mercy Tiara aka Tracy Banks from Scraptastic Kit Club posted a challenge on the Scraptastic Kit Club blog on July 4th and I was dying to try it out. She challenged us to use Journalling strips on a layout. I did a layout about my son Gus' new haircut. I used the chalk board tape from Fancy Pants for my journalling along with a chalk pen.

The paper is from a Fancy Pants paper pad I got at the Craft Warehouse Tent Sale recently. I am in love with the Fancy Pants cork shapes lately.
Here's a close up of the journalling strips. I cut them in a couple different ways to add interest.
Here's a shot of the title and journalling.
Little detail in the bottom corner. I stamped the date and added an arrow and enamel dot. Love those little boogers!!
I am a huge fan of Mercy Tiara on youtube and have learned so much from watching her videos. She has posted challenges before but this is the first one I've tried. Wish me luck!! I might win a $20 gift card to Scraptastic!!!!
Thanx for stopping by!
