This page incorporates some things that I've wanted to try for a while. I used a trading card page protector (stolen from my son's Pokemon card book--ssshh, don't tell!) to hold the elements of the page. Each of the patterned papers has a stitched border (part of the challenge). And I stitched the protector to the cardstock base. I didn't, but could have, included nine other elements on the flip side of the protector--fun, fun! Next time. I also handwrote the journaling and accented key words with Stampin' Up! Pastels.The only thing missing from this page is some scratch-and-sniff! You still have 5 more days to complete week one's challenge. In the words of Ferris Bueller: "You're still here? It's over. Go!" Get over there and check it out!

SENSE-ational Summer Week #1
It's been so much fun over at Dixie Pieces this weekend. If you haven't already checked it out, please do. Here is my layout for the first week's challenge: The Scent of Summer. I feel like a bit of a scrapbooking over-achiever completing the one-week asssignment on the first day, but I was feeling inspired by the summer colors of the challenge (and hubby was around to take over on the kid-front). You've got to grab the mojo when you can get it!
