Check Mate!

I have two boys who love to play chess.  And, for some reason they really love to play with Uncle Jeff's chess set!!!!  So, while we were visiting this past Christmas they convinced Jeff to bring out his chess set and had a couple matches.  I, of course, took loads of pictures and at my Scrapbook Club this month I put them on a layout.

For my title I chose to use chipboard letters inked with Craft ink.  I love the look this gives and am super sad that both these chipboard letters and all our craft ink will be retiring at the end of May!

For some embellishments on my page, I punched some squares (1 1/4", I think!), sponged them and added a brad in each one.  I love the look of the brads in random corners!

This is my favorite picture I took that night!  I love the look on both of their faces!!!!  And, you can see that I did some journaling on strips of cardstock which I embellished with a button.

And, finally, here is the whole layout.

As soon as I find my white gel pen, I will finish my journaling on the black strip!  I love this layout and will definitely be using it again for more of my pictures!

One final thing.  A lot of our 12x12 cardstock will no longer be sold in individual color packs and come June 1 will only be available in Assorted Packs.  Now is your time to stock up on those colors that you use a lot so you don't have to get them in assorted packs! 

Have an inspired day!
