10 Things on the 10th: LOAD edition!

It's been a while since I've participated in Shimelle's 10 things on the 10th. But I have been a scrapping machine the past few weeks, participating in Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party class as well as Lain Ehman's LOAD 213 Challenge, and I have a lot of layouts to share!

LOAD Day 1: Wordless layout

LOAD Day 2: Scrap a perfect day
LOAD Day 3: Focus on an important but overlooked item

LOAD Day 4: Scrap a goal.  I went with a layout from Cathy Zielske's Move More, Eat Well class (that I bought last year  but never completed, or really even started!)

LOAD Day 5: Scrap your honey
LOAD Day 6: Create a page you've been putting off
Based on a sketch from Scrapbook Generation

LOAD Day 7: Create a page about nature
Based on a sketch from Shimelle's PPP class

LOAD Day 8: Prompt was to scrap a smell, but I went for sight instead...the beginning of Blizzard 2013!

LOAD Day 9: Scrap a childhood photo
Based on a sketch from Shimelle's PPP class
P.S. Has anyone ever seen this toy before? I would love to know what it was called!

LOAD Day 10 is still in progress, so here's one from last month for Shimelle's PPP class
Thanks for stopping by! To see more 10 on the 10th posts, go to Shimelle's blog.

LOAD213 Day 1

Day 1 of Lain Ehman's LOAD Challenge was a success! I finished this layout by 9:30 this morning!

The prompt today was to create a layout without any title or journaling! Let the photos speak for themselves, and use your paper & design to convey the emotion.

I decided to use a picture of my husband and myself from our summer vacation. Since I was only using one photo and no journaling, I printed the photo at 5x7. I selected some coordinating paper (Fancy Pants Love Birds) and went to work. Since the paper was already so busy, I didn't add any embellishments...I just did a bit of fussy cutting and inked the edges of my paper. Done!

Hopefully I can keep this up all month!
