Turning a Blog Post into a Layout

Remember this post about summer a while back?  I now have a scrapbook page that documents this memory using the September kit!  Here is a scrapbooking tip from me: I keep a private blog where I document my daily life, and some of these posts get turned into scrapbook pages.  I think of my private blog content as ready-made journaling.  Just like in this case, I took the writing from the post on WIP blog and made a few changes and hand wrote it onto my page.

The brown gingham fabric tape is from the August WIP kit. I thought it matched this kit seamlessly! In the close up, you can see that I punched out the butterflies into circles and inked the edges of the circle with distress ink.  I then used 3-d adhesive to pop them out.  I also quite love the curved title around the butterfly chipboard embellishment.  They were the perfect size for each other! 

That wraps up a post and off to finish my other WIP projects!
