Awesome Day - Scrapmatts DT

The second theme for January for Scrapmatts was 'All About You', which had to include a photo of me. I've picked a photo from our trip to America at the start of last year. I love frogs and goofing around so thought this was good one to reflect me.

I've started to use more of that beautiful film strip I picked up from the recycling store but I'm still in two minds as to whether it works or not. I love the look of those tangled threads on other people's layouts but they just end up looking horrible when I try on mine. Does anyone have any tips for me?

I've only used two pieces of Scrapmatts chipboard here because I really wanted to let that beautiful frame shine. A very exciting development is that Scrapmatts now stocks a range of charms as well! I've used two of the beautiful filigree pieces on this LO. Scrapmatts pieces used: CB5006 Ornate Frame 04, CB1124 Hinges 01, CH004 Filigree Flower #2, CH010 Filigree Flower #5.


Notice the flair buttons used with the filigree? I may have gone slightly flair crazy in the space between Christmas and New Years and ordered a 'few' from some different stores. You will probably be seeing them popping up on my layouts a lot more in the near future. :)

I used the Scrapfriends January sketch challenge for this LO.


  1. Love the photo! Great layers and beautiful frame. Also love your journaling around the page. Thank you for joining us at Scrap Friends!
