I have been setting goals for myself to participate in more online scrapping challenges. One of my favorite forums is Scrapbooks.com and one of the challenges I signed up for was to scraplift a LO from the person who signs up ahead of you. This was created based on the inspiration of another great scrapper, 'AprilButterfly,' with my own twists of course :)
Detail pic:This pic shows how I bent my green border to give it a wave/3D feel. (Thanks to Quick Quotes Design Team member Adora for this awesome idea) I used glue-dots to hold the folds in place. This pic also shows close-ups of the polka-dot and blue papers that have been distressed with one of my favorite tools. It is an edge distresser made by Close-to-my-heart which costs less than $3. Love the look it gives!
