Waiting Game

My friend Dinah is Guest DT of Back Porch Memories for the month of July and her challenge is to create a layout using only paper. According to Dinah, "Everything must be made from paper including your title, embellishments, journaling sheet, etc. You can do whatever technique you want with the papers. Be creative – cut it (using scissors, dies, coluzzle, or a craft knife is fine), tear it, punch it, edge it, or ink it!"

What a great challenge! Out came my punchers and Sizzix dies. I created a lacy border using my Carl decorative puncher. I cut the flowers from the PP and stacked die cut flowers for my accent. I also cut out words from the SEI paper. And here is my layout:

TITLE: Waiting Game

Materials: Chatterbox, Provocraft, SEI and We R Memory Keepers papers, Fun Serif Sizzlits, Staedler Pen, Sizzix Flower dies, Carl Flower Puncher and Decorative Edge Puncher, McGill Tab Punch, EK Success Photo Corner Puncher.

Journaling: To say that I am excited to have this baby is an understatement. I feel like a first time mom again, eager for the stork to finally arrive. Yes, it is proving to be a waiting game every time my 3rd trimester comes.
