The Cake- Day 3 of Blog Hop

Welcome to SOC's 8th Anniversary Blog Hop! I'm glad you stopped by for the celebration! If you're dropping by from Cyndi's blog, then you're in the right place! However, if you started here, you can visit the SOC E:spire blog to join this party from the beginning!
To commemorate Scraps of Color's 8th birthday, I, along with some talented papercrafters, have teamed up to share projects based on the celebrations in our lives. We wanted to have this special blog hop to celebrate this great crafting community where we laugh, play, and create together and encourage and inspire one another. Of course, a blog hop isn't complete without blog candy! There will be giveaways on various blogs throughout the hop! Plus there will be a SOC blog hop gift awaiting one visitor!! To be eligible for that prize, you must comment on all the blogs by Monday, Oct. 8 at 11pm EST. From all who are eligible, one lucky reader will be randomly drawn. The winner will be posted on all the participating blogs on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

First of all, I want to apologize for the picture.  I took the original subject with my smartphone (the phone is not very smart if you ask me), then I took the layout with my IPad, so the words on the cake are a little distorted,  My digital camera bit the dust months ago.  I had a freak accident with it by dropping it, and broke the door of the battery compartment, and it finally gave up 5 months ago.  This is what happens when you depend on backups, and trust me, a Smartphone and an IPad are exactly that, backups.  Trust me, if you want a quality picture, a digital camera is best for the job, not wannabe's, LOL

Anyway, on with the program.  This is super simple, and it requires a 6x6 sheet of cardstock, a scrap piece of paper, about a little less than 6x6, and your single photograph.  Mat your photo, then adhere to the 6x6 piece of paper.  Write a description of what is going on, and put some faux stitching around the photo with a gel pen.  The layout is part of a year in review layout for me (I never make anything for myself), and trust me, it looks better in person.
I hope you enjoyed the layout.  It goes to show that you can have a layout, no matter what size you make.  It can be 3 photos and have a lot, like my day one layout or it can be 1 photo and become 6x6,  Let me know what you think by commenting below.

Be blessed everyday.

  1. Great layout! Clean and Simple. To the point. TFS AJ-

  2. Nice layout. Would never thought to make one that size! Will keep this in mind.

  3. Nice LO. Since I am a beginner at layouts it is good to know that they can be smaller and still be nice.

  4. nice ipad takes great pics but again I am lazy so I don't pull out the digital camera
