Challenge 3- Creative Memories Virtual Crop

This day is just flying by!

So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend. You might be enjoying shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops.   However, it is still pretty cool here in Minnesota.  We are still wearing long pants with long-sleeve shirts, and closed toe shoes.  And, layering.  Maybe more than one layer, possibly even two or three layers.

So, while we are layering on our clothing here in Minnesota, let’s talk about LAYERING our borders on our scrapbook pages.

The great thing about borders is that you can create them ahead of time, and then just add them to your projects when you are ready.  They add a perfect touch of color and design to scrapbooking layouts.

Challenge #3:  Create a border using the following sketch, adding more than two layers.  Post a photo of your project to the Facebook Event before 3:00pm CST to qualify for the prize for this challenge.


Please use hashtag:  #CMVirtualCrop



Marja rotated the border sketch 90 degrees, and created it vertically.
