Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day, and let me tell you that i took that day very seriously! 
Lots of scrapping, lots of chatting, and lots of instagraming! I was following along on Two Peas, Studio Calico and Shimelle's, which mean that this first layout is a mix of a lot of different challenges: refer to your pins (aka i scraplifted a layout from my Pinterest), use 5 different patterned papers, embrace the power of three and use a 4x6 photo. To that i added a personal challenge of mine: get out of my comfort zone and use color i am not comfortable with: orange, green and kraft. Mix all that together, and you get... Is this Hogwarts? 

I kind of adore this new layout, because it has everything i love: pretty papers, glittery thickers, sewing (boy my fingers still hurt from all that sewing, at some point i even had to go through 5 layers to stitch... ), lots of layers and wood veneers <3. 

Here's a closer look at the details:
 So, did you guess who's the blogger/layout i scraplifted? Her layout is GORGEOUS, you can see it here, or you can try and guess in the comments ;)

  3. I loved this layout as soon as I saw it in the SC gallery, but I didn't realize which layout it was inspired by until I clicked on the link and now I totally see the similarities! Thanks so much! I'm flattered!
