Simple Scrapper September Challenge

Every month there is a Reader Challenge over at Simple Scrapper with a lovely little prize from Persnickety Prints for the winner. This month's challenge is to create a layout that uses a map (paper or scanned) or a map-themed patterned paper. I did both on my page about our visit to Independence, Missouri.


Design Notes:
Two Ways I Used the Map Theme on this Page:
  • Map patterned paper from Studio Calico and Crate Paper peeks out subtly in the background.
  • A piece of the map from our travel brochure is used as a banner embellishment.


 Alphabets: American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket, Heidi Swapp, October Afternoon


If you would like to participate in this challenge, everything you need to know is right here. I'd love to know if you submit a layout. Feel free to add your link to the comments in this post so I can stop by and check out your work!
