For my first three children, I had their scrapbooks finished shortly after they turned one. That is why it will come as a shock to you to hear that my 3-year-old's first-year scrapbook is not finished yet, actually it's barely started. Life changes and homeschooling have gotten in the way of my scrapbooking time. This week I pulled out my supplies and worked on the album for three days straight. Sometimes I make cards and think, "I'm using up all my scrapbooking time and supplies making cards I don't need." But I really like participating in card challenges, so I just need to find a balance. Maybe soon I will take some pictures of all the layouts I made and post them here.
My husband took my son canoeing this morning, so I let my girls watch cartoons and took a few minutes to make this card. It was not hard, and I still feel like it needs something, but one-layer cards are not my forte. I'll get better at it with practice.
Less is More is asking for a one-layer card using vehicles.
Addicted to CAS is asking us to make a one-layer card.
Just Us Girls is challenging us to use something shiny.
Crazy 4 Challenges says to use monochromatic colors.
You can see that I embossed the car in silver.
I used shades of green for my card.
