Lights Out Layout

I completed this layout during my most recent Scrapbook with me event and wanted to share it with you here. We have been dealing with some medical issues with my youngest daughter and during a recent doctor appointment she passed out cold after having blood drawn. A very scary thing to see happen and I am glad she is ok but knew I needed to scrapbook this event as I know I am not always that good about scrapbooking the not-so-good things that happen in our lives.

This 8 1/2" x 11" layout is based on this 12" x 12" sketch from Scrapbook Challenges I found on Pinterest.

The papers are from the March/April Mix In Paper pack. I love how versatile the Mix In papers are that they can be used on their own as well as with the other paper collections from the catalog. The title was stamped using Sundance Exclusive Inks and the Simple Serif Uppercase Alphabet set on die cut pieces cut using the Simple Serif Uppercase Thin Cuts set. 

I like added some dimension to my layouts so I used 3-D Foam Tape to lift up the ends of the banner strips as well as the title. I also added some machine stitching along the tops of the banner strips. I added some sequins from my stash along with a wooden heart that I sponged some Sundance ink onto. 

I knew I wanted to tell the story in more detail so I created a pocket for a hidden journal box that I added a tab to the top of using the Tags & Tabs Thin Cuts set and reinforced using the mini stapler.
