A layout & a card

This layout is for a challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap. The challenge was to use something from Dr. Seuss for his birthday which was Mar. 2nd. I took the happy sections (LOL) from Oh! The Places You'll Go! and wrote them out into journaling. I also highlighted specific sentences by using different stickers. The sticker that says "Life is short, stay awake for it." is actually off of a coffee mug wrapper. That quote so suits my son!! He never stops!This next card is for another challenge at SOS. This was in honor of Alexander Graham Bell's birthday which was on Mar. 3. The challenge was to mail a card to someone. I also used a Sat. card challenge from SOS to layer something & pop it up with dimensionals. I am sending this card to my grandma in Texas with pictures of my kids inside.
Thanks for looking!

This page was done for a few different challenges. The first challenge was at Scrap it Forward & it was to use the word "lucky" in your title and make your LO mostly green. The second challenge was at Crop Suey & that was to use tape on your page. I followed the directions that Stacy from the Crop Suey DT had linked to this video on her blog. It was a pretty neat & easy technique. I did it the other day to make the tape in the last picture. I used a cardstock bookmark the first time & it took a little longer. The 2nd time I used magazine paper & it was much easier. The third challenge was at Sisterhood of Scrap and it was for Colleen's March challenge. Her challenge was to have something flying, have an animal & make your LO mostly green. Thanks for looking!!
