Olympic Scrapbooking

Well, this is a blog about paper, so it should feature some paper somewhere, right? Below is my Olympic-inspired scrapbook layout, based on the colors of the figure skating rink backdrop. Layout uses Ali Edwards' template from her Yesterday & Today class at Big Picture Scrapbooking (Week 11).

One thing I really like about this layout is how many different products I got to use - brads that my sister had given me after her wedding, lots of different patterned papers, ribbon from a new ribbon pack that I got at Christmas time, and some Thickers letters. I even inked the edges of my journaling box and background green paper, something I never do.

And, I heard from Nancy Nally of (via the Paperclipping Roundtable, episode 7) that there are at least 4 scrapbookers in the Winter Olympics: snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis, snowboarder Hannah Teter, freestyle skiier Julia Mancuso, and skeleton racer Noelle Pikus-Pace.

  1. That's so cool just to capture a week like that! It's those ordinary things which are so very special and really make up life.
