I recently became a fan of Scrapbook Trends magazine’s FaceBook page, and I entered a contest they held called “I’m Grateful.” They posted three layouts about gratitude from their November issue and asked fans to contribute layouts inspired by one of them.
Although my layout isn’t about gratitude, I was inspired by the structure of the “So very thankful” page, which had photos over a collage of tickets. So I used a photo of the Halloween banner I had up on our mantel and wove a photo mat out of strips of the same paper I had used to make the banner. I was quite happy with the result … and I won the contest! I am sooo excited. They just announced today that my layout was the winner. And the prize is a year’s subscription to their magazine! I can tell you I’m a very happy scrapper tonight.
