Snail Hunters *Scrapbook Studio*

Here is another layout I created this month with the November Scrapbook Studio kit.
I took these cute photos of my grandchildren the morning after a sleepover.  They wanted to play outside early the morning and when we let them out they started searching for snails.  To their delight they had these snails glide over their arms.

Step one:  Cut two cardstock to 30cm x 30cm
Step two:  Cut a 29cm diameter circle from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Bouquet.  Cut a 10 x 10 cm from Crate Paper: Portrait Collection Traditions for your journaling block.
Step three:  Cut three strips by two.  I cut along the pattern of the black lacy paper of the Crate paper: Portrait Collection: Tradition.  I then split the lacy paper in two halves to go across the page.  The other two strips I edged with a border punch.
Step four:  Cut circles various sizes and lay out your basic layout to get the placement of the various circles.
Step five:  Paste down the large circle with 7,5 cm on the left page.  Paste down the strips, bottom strip is approximately 11 cm from the bottom. Then paste down the circles according to your placements.
Step six:  I added some very old “raindrops” by Cloud 9 Design.
Step seven:  I coloured  the chipboard alphabet with a black marker.

You can find the November kit at the Scrapbook Studio store.
