Scrapz.Biz Baby Month

Hi There!

It's Baby Month over at Scrapz.Biz. Come & join in the fun with a different baby themed challenge every week day for the whole of April!

This was my first project for Baby Month. Find the challenge Here. I chose to base a challenge around those ugly/not so perfect photos that I know we all have stashed away in the photo box! Sometimes scrapping a photo that doesn't look pretty is a hard task but it is so important to include these photos in our albums to tell the whole story!

Here are a few tips on scrapping those not so perfect pics

1. My fav trick is to use smaller photos rather than a 6X4. I usually use 2X3 photos & put 2 photos on the page to keep it balanced. I also like to edit the pic to Black & White so that they don't stand out as much

2. Use bold patterns or colours to distract the eye. I would recommend using a more neutral background & use the patterns in smaller pieces around the page to help keep balance to the page

3. Use clusters of embellies as a focal point. That way there is more to focus on the page than just the photo
The challenge is to use at last 1 ugly/not so perfect pic along with at least 3 different patterns of paper & 2 clusters of embellishments. You have until April 30 to upload your entry so there is plenty of time!

This next LO was from my Scrap It Blind Challenge last month

& this page was from a Base Jump challenge from 2 months ago ( I forgot to put it up earlier!)

Look out for a giveaway in my next post! I am celebrating my 100th post & have some yummy goodies for you to win!!
