Staying Indoors

When we are stuck indoors, or when friends come over, we often pull out the scrabble game or a deck of cards. Since I am the chief photographer, I especially like to document the times when I win the game! I also take an extra picture of the game and score sheet just in case I need it for a scrapbook page.

This challenge called for a 2.125 inch square as a prominent feature. I used 8 of these size pictures along with 2 larger photos. In between I used many 1inch squares which looked plain until I thought to make them appear as dice since we've recently discovered the game LCR (a dice game).

The title was a challenge. I used my slice machine to make the letters but they were too large. I also pulled out the old sizzix but those letters were too large too. They sit it a pile on my workspace for now until I find a use for them. (See below)

I inked the edges of the teal paper and ended up just using stickers for the title as it was getting late and I was out of creative ideas. I enjoyed making this page since it reminded me of the times we played those games.

And to continue on the line of not following instructions as one of my design team partners spoke of, I used my Lotus paper for this challenge. I saw Lotus under February and didn't realize I need it for the next challenge! I guess I need to place an order....

The dice squares are a wonderful balance to the other 2 1/8 square photos. Great page!

I too have to say that I really like the dice squares in the layout! And even though the challenge this time didn't call for Lotus, I think it was a good choice for your layout.

Beth - this is great I love the "dice squares!"

Nice layout. Like the photo w/Beth won 4 games. Cute dog! Good idea w/the dice. Especially liked the pile of letters - we've all done that before.

Too funny Beth - I guess several of us were challenged with this challenge! :) The end result is very nice - you'd never know you had so much trouble with it!
