Chicago 1 & 2 | August 15, 2009

Girls weekend in Chicago last summer was SO MUCH FUN!!! I get a warm fuzzy happy feeling just looking at the photos and remembering. Must do this again as soon as possible!!

Today I scrapped page "1 of 2" - I had previously completed page "2 of 2."

Left page (Today's Speed Scrap)

Right Page (completed previously)

* - * The Backstory * - *

Today's page (the top one) was done as part of a speed scrap challenge over at ScrapMatters. In this challenge, you follow a "recipe" but you get one instruction every 10 minutes for an hour, ending with a 7th and final instruction at the 60-minute mark. Then you have one hour to finish the project and post it, usually to get a small prize.

Today's recipe:
1. Find a multiple photo template (3 or more photos). Alter the template in some way by flipping, moving, or adding something to it.
2. Make at least one photo a circle/oval shape and another photo much larger than the rest.
3. Choose your papers. Use at least one patterned paper and have it prominently displayed on the page.
4. Mat your photos.
5. Add some stitching and ribbon or trim, then add whatever other embellishments you want.
6. Add a title using an alpha and embellish it somehow.
7. Date, add shadows, and journal if you wish.
