Scraptastic Pinterest Challenge

Last Monday Nathalie and I shared a "Pinterest inspired" blog post on Scraptastic's blog. Here are the pins we used for our projects:  

Here's what I created using these photos: because of the girl with the book in our Pinterest collage I chose photos of my son and me at the school library for my layout. Books are a huge part of my life, always have been. So when the school board was looking for help for their library I volunteered straight away. For my page I used November’s Free Fallin’ kit and add-on which I adore!

I chose patterned paper with leaves (October Afternoon and Bella Blvd) because of the branches with the leaves in our collage. Then for the punched out hearts I used an old book page and punched out hearts as well (the old book page comes from my own stash):

For the title I used alpha stickers from Elle’s Studio and the design was obviously also derived from the Pinterest collage:

And I thought that the rug in the Pinterest photo resembled this houndstooth paper:

This was my interpretation of the Pinterest photos and cards we chose. For Nathalie's layout please hop over to the Scraptastic blog

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful weekend!
