My Crazy Family

When Katherine from Scrap Everything sent me Bo Bunny's new "Family Is" pack I knew I wouldn't have trouble finding photos to suit it. The theme of the pack is very much about crazy families. My family fits the bill perfectly!

The pack contains papers, chippies and sticker sheets. There are a lot of words in the pack, great if you struggle with journaling.

Here's my layout:

I made the most of the words by running a strip of them down one side of the page. Although I love the background paper I wanted something brighter behind the pics so I attacked it with my gesso and stencil. The only other product on the page that isn't from the Family Is pack is the gorgeous twine on some of the buttons. You can get it here. At $1 for 5 metres it's one of the best value scrapping products you will ever buy.

Here are some closies:

Now if any of you saw my post before this one then you might notice a similarity between the design of the two layouts. This was completely unintentional and I didn't notice it myself until I sat one layout down on my desk next to the other. The weird thing is, I made this layout before I even saw the Scrap Around The World sketch. My Scrap Everything layouts always get posted on a Friday, which is why the other layout went up first on my blog. To make matters worse, I used the same stencil on both layouts. (I tend to do that - if I make something and like it why not do it again?) What I'm trying to say is I didn't scraplift SATW's sketch for this layout! I'm sure this sort of thing must happen all the time but it's the first time it's happened to me.

Happy scrapping everyone.
