Week Three Scrapbooking Challenge...

I don't know about you but I am always so relieved when Stampede is over...and maybe a little sad. Was it just me or did there seem to be a lot less decorations this year? Maybe it's just a sign of the times.
So onto Challenge number three ( don't worry last weeks are down lower and so is the next random winner)


The technical term for cutting out something is to fussy cut. Now, we all did this when we started scrapbooking and when we realized how hard this to achieve well, then we abandoned it. Yet like all things, the trend returns. So this week find a photo and fussy cut it out! Below is a page I did of Ashley last Christmas and a page a stole from Kimberly Colllis of her daughter, Avery.

A few tips for making Fussy cutting work well:
- Use as complete an image as possible ( nothing looks weirder then a one armed boy)
- Make sure to create a setting for the image so it's not floating on the page. Below I created wings, and Kim created a garden.
- If using multiple images, try and keep there scale similar.

Remember to email them to me or my new email address of
