Happy Birthday Mini Challenge

Happy Birthday, Scrapbookers Anonymous! The challenge site is a year old this month. I've had the privilege of working with Theresa and Lea from the beginning, and they are too much fun! Along with the usual monthly challenge and A to Z challenge, there are several mini challenges being posted throughout this month. Today it's my turn.

My mini-challenge is this:
Create a layout with a long title and use up a chunk of your alphabet stash!
 


I love longer titles. Here are three reasons why.
Reason #1: You can mix the font styles, sizes, and colors for a fun and eye-catching title.


Reason #2: A longer title becomes a prominent design element on the page, like the way this title fills in my grid.



Reason #3: Telling your story in a longer title reduces the need for lengthy journaling. It's all there in the title and photos.


Now it's your turn! You have until October 7th at midnight EST to complete your project and get your link added. Link up your project here. Winners will be announced by the end of the day on October 10th. Give this a try, you might get hooked on longer titles like I am!
