I really wanted to scrap, I had made sure I had the time to do it, but still it just wasn't happening. I couldn't find any energy and ideas for it. Yet I really wanted to do another layout for the Product Playground class. So I want to thank Carin for setting me the following challenge, which got me scrapping:
At least 70% has to be covered with patterned paper. Use a colour you won't often use (even if it's on a tiny embellishment) and put some of your title in a bookplate.
And this is what I came up with. (The background cardstock is actually white - even though on the photo it looks blue at the bottom!) I definitely passed on the 70% patterned paper (Chatterbox - both the striped and the blue) and using a colour I don't normally use (BRIGHT red on the title). As for the "part of title in bookplate" I guess you could argue if I really did that or not. I figured that putting some of the title in the bookplate would mean the title had to be very small. And it didn't really work for what I wanted. So I compromised and put the date in the bookplate instead.
