Scrap Our Stash "P.H.O.T.O.S" Challenge "ShutterBug"

Hi Everyone!!

You can't see me, but I am (virtually) "Jumping Up and Down with Joy," to be able to bring you my FIRST Design Team Inspiration Layout, for the Scrap Our Stash Blog!!   WOO HOO!

One of the things I LOVE about this Challenge Blog is that it really helps you to use up the "STUFF" you've had sitting around F O R E V E R - and in a very creative way!

For example - on this first challenge - the layout can be whatever you want it to be, as long as you included an item from your "STASH" - for each of the Letters in the word "PHOTOS."  Yup, that is the ONLY RULE!

So - if you are like me - and I'm thinking like most scrappers, you have "Quite the Stash" to pick from - LOL!!   You also have until July 29th, to submit your entry, and YES, you can WIN a PRIZE, or be selected to be a Guest Designer too!

SO - what to do, what to do???  Where do I start on these kind of challenges?  Well, first, I decide on what photo or photos I want to use.

For this challenge, I selected a photo that I took on our recent Disney Cruise to Alaska.  There are these really cool super duper large porthole windows on Deck 3 of The Disney Wonder, that have a padded seat in them, just outside of the Adult Night Club area.  We happened to be waiting there to play a game of Trivia or participate in a Mixology Class or something like that.  When I saw my husband and 2 sons sitting there in the shadow of the windows, I just had to take a picture!!

Next, onto what paper(s) I wanted to use.  Well since I've been wracking my brain, trying to come up with not just ONE - but TWO scrapbook items that begin with "O" - I knew that one of them had to be "ORANGE." Then it hit me - as I thought of the perfect paper collection....Bo Bunny's "Mama Razzi2"  - How fitting right!?? :-) The title of this page is....

I stamped and journaled on the tag and added it to the banner too.
