Glue & Paper

I scrapbooked last night!! I love when I can sit for hours and just glue paper & embellishments down!!

Last night I finished my 4th of July mini album (waiting for the photos I ordered before I share the entire project). Here is a sneak peek of the cover.
I am using the MemoryWorks July Express kit (there are a few left for purchase w/out a subscription) and the album I got at Archiver's last time I was in the cities. It is a canvas album with 4 chipboard pages inside and 2 canvas pockets. I thought it'd be fun to play with! And it really was! I sprayed the cover of the album with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and hot glued the elements to the front.

I also am hosting the 2nd challenge on the MW Studio this month. If you are a MemoryWorks Consultant head on over to enter and for a chance to win a PRIZE!!

I picked out a sketch from Pagemaps.com. I just loved all the possibilities with this sketch and the fact that everyone is always looking for ways to add more photos to their layout and I thought this was perfect!!

So here is my take on the sketch. I think I"ll add a little to it and of course I'll add journaling. The words just were not coming to me last night.
I didn't put photos in all the spots, I actually filled some areas with pattern paper (I may go back and add elements to those areas - like chipboard or a stamped image).

Also, the scalloped part is Pink Paislee Flip Notes, I cut the tops & bottoms off 2 of the flip notes and adhered to my photo mat. I kept the rest of the flip note because it made a really cool tag or possible use for a title box on another layout!
