This week I only had one objective in my scrapbooking - to make a small page that I could display on-set during the CHEO Telethon.
All three of my children have benefited from the medical aid they received from the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. And my dear friend Donna lost her son almost 8 years ago to leukemia. Therefore, every year we volunteer during the telethon and answer the phones taking pledges.
It is a wonderful way to give back to a wonderful hospital. You are encouraged to bring a photo and display it by your phone. The hosts will zoom in on the photos and come ask you about your experiences with the hospital.
I decided to try out my new digital software and design and few options. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to make 8 pages. All in all, it took me only 1 hour to make all the variations - it actually took longer to get consensus on which one to use!!! (I let my mother, mother-in-law and hubby decide which one I would display.)
Which one would you have chosen? It would be interesting to see what everyone thinks!
The Sunday Scrappin' challenge this week was to use paper that you were not fond of or liked - I kind of relate that to using something that is contrary to your personal style. Well, in making the 8 samples I really pushed my comfort level. Firstly, I never really thought I would like scrapbooking in a digital format - but I did. The results are a bit different than my style when scrapbooking in the traditional way. And secondly, when I scrapbook traditionally, I rarely use patterned paper behind photos -and with the digital format, I once again pushed this boundary. Plus, I really do not like that lime green paper with purple and orange in sample # 5. UGLY! Therefore, in my own way, I met this week's challenge!
