We Scrap July Challenge

This is a recipe challenge where you cook up a layout.
Start with the base: 4 patterned papers (cardstock is optional) and add a title

THEN:Use your birthday to find the rest of your ingredients!
Find your birth month to see how many photos to include on your page:
January, April, July, October – 1 photo
February. May, August, November – 2 photos
March, June, September, December – 3 photos

Use your birth date to see what embellishments you need to use. For example, if your birthday is on the
18th, you would use chipboard and rub ons. If your birthday is on the 1st – 9th, use a 0 in front of it (as
in 01 - 09). For example, if your birthday is on the 2nd, you would use 0 and 2 – ribbon/trim/lace and
1 – chipboard
2 – Flowers
3 – buttons
4 – Stickers
5 – bling
6 – ribbon/trim/lace
7 – Brads
8 – rub ons
9 – tags
0 – borders

What decade you were born in determines what technique you use on your page:
30s (or earlier) – painting
40s – stitching
50s – distressing
60s – punches
70s – stamping
80s – Inking
90s (and later) – misting

My birthday is February 8, 1951 so I used 2 photos, borders plus rubons, distressing... 4 patterned papers, rubon title... you can use more elements along with the maditory ones.. can't wait to see your Recipe and finished layout.

This month I lifted this challenge idea from my friend Sherri... I had so much fun playing along

with her that I thought you'd like it too.

Be sure to play along at WeScrap.. ballots for projects completed each month.

And lots of fabulous inspiring layouts by DT and other members.
