Scrapbook Layout #2

My scrapbooking summer project is going great since my last post on June 8th I have completed about 10 layouts.  I started with my least favorite scrapbooking subject....Christmas.  So I did all of my Christmas layouts and Gingerbread house (a yearly tradition) layouts.  I found it much easier to work on my page by keeping a page on my counter and walking by and working on it a little at a time....Mounting a photo here and there and adding journalling and stickers as I could....

The Challenge from one of my favorite blogs SCRAPFIT was to develop your own polriod photo and I thought it was brilliant and I am mad I didn't think of it before.  I made the entire layout out of supplies in my left over folder.

To make the poloaroids I cut my photo to a square 4x4  I then mounted the photos on white cardstock with a Quarter inch boarder all the way except on the bottom where I left almost a one inch boarder.  I couldn't believe how it looked just like a polaroid.  It would be perfect for those instagram type photos or black and white photos everyone is using.  I wanted to try this out on lots of my other projects BUT I couldn't find any photos that would make a great SQUARE....  All of the die cuts were from one of those cheap pre-die cut paper packs I got on clearance, and the letters were a modge podge of lots of things I had left over. The green cardstock in the middle of the page was a scrap piece I have been saving for a rainy day.... I wasn't sure if it was the correct grammer but oh well....
