One of my Design Team layouts for the August Scrapology Challenge.
This is Catherine dressed as a teacher for Victorian Day at school in 1999.

Here is the original layout was created by 2 Dogs, chosen by the DT for this month's challenge.

This is our sketch

I used Kaiser Craft papers from Charlotte's Dream Collection - Vision and Die Cut.

I also used some die cuts from the Charlotte's Dream Collectables.

The Die cut sheet was distressed and inked before being stuck down to a piece for Fuzzy Peach Kaiser Craft cardstock.

A 5" circle cut from Vision was distressed, inked and edged with lace. I stuck this to the right of the layout and mounted my photo onto it.

I cut a 4" circle from cardstock and mounted it onto a small doily, both were inked.
This was then trimmed with a strip of pleated gold netting, and attached to the left of the bigger circle.

I decorated with paper flowers from Kaiser Craft and Wild Orchid Crafts.

The date and 'Catherine' were spelt out with Kaiser Craft Charlotte's Dream Stickers.

I cut the sign from scraps of Bazzil and using a Sizzix die. These were heavily inked and I added eyelets to the holes. I hung the sign from the hanger with some cord then stuck to the layout with 3D foam pads. The word 'Teacher' is made with Thickers letter stickers from American Crafts.

Thanks for looking and please check out the Scrapology site for more details of the challenge which runs until 5th September.
