How about a recipe to get you scrappin'? I know December is a busy month for most of us. Christmas for some, summer holidays for the others and also school holidays for those with the same school calendar as us in Singapore! :)

October Afternoon Scrap Recipe challenge (dec 1st 2014)

One look at the recipe and you'll think "that's not a lot to work with!" - believe me I know. But that's the interesting and challenging part.

Here's my layout

Verdict? I adore this layout.
I use little patterned paper as it is, but when I have a recipe calling for no patterned paper, that is all I wanna slap onto this layout! :D I focused on the journaling, and made the alphabets chipboard the star of the layout. The Old Oak alphas are my personal favorite!
One brad - oh this was hard, because I love brads! It took me a while to decide on that 'No 1' brad from Public Library. The layout, after all, is about Sam's first marathon :)

I love how you typed the journaling and kept this so clean and simple. These are my favorite types of layouts. Quick question: what are pop drops??
