Scrap It Girl August Challenge

Good morning! Today is my first time posting a DT project for Scrap It Girl and I'm super excited! The challenge for August is to use numbers, which is easy and simple right?? As soon as I found out about it, I knew I wanted to create a mini album, and came up with this idea for my daughter Emily...






Supplies: Basic Grey 6x6 Paper Pad - What's Up; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Technique Tuesday Stamp Set - Borderline: Live For Today; Fiskars Round & Round Punch; EK Success Scallop Circle Punch; American Crafts Thickers - Rainboots; Studio Calico Wood Veneers - Tweet Birds; DYMO Caption/Label Maker; Crop-A-Dile; Doodlebug Plain & Simple Mini Album - Square Chip

The title and tabs along the side of the album say "13 reasons that you are soooo loved by all of us". She's going to be 13 in December (man, I can't believe that!), and I thought a mini album filled with some favorite pictures and lots of reasons we love her would be a very special gift. So far I've only done the cover so I don't have any inside pages to show you just yet (I want to be sure that it's a family project and her daddy and sissy are included inside), but I'll be sure to share those with you as they get made. ;)

So have you got some ideas floating around for a numbers project you'd like to create? It can be absolutely anything you want it to be as long as it includes a number of some sort, and do you want to know what you can win by playing along? Here it the awesome prize being offered...



How great is that?? You have all month long to get your project made and linked up over at the Scrap It Girl blog, so get creative and have fun! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Not only is the cover amazing - but love that you are making this a family project and dad and sister will be able to write some pages too. Very cool! I hope to play along :)
