MFTSCRAP3 {Braces off}

Wow! time is flying....always does when we are having fun. We are starting our third month of MFT Scrapbook sketches. I love them and it has really made me jump back into scrapping. I'm finally making a dent in my photo pile. Thanks My Favorite Things!

A few months ago, my oldest son got his braces off and his expander out! It was a BIG day, for sure. I kept the page fairly simple, adding only a few fun embellishments in a blue, grey, and cream color combo.  

I used the INSERT IT-INSTAFRAME Die-namics to frame his pretty new smile. The stamp set, CAPTURED MEMORIES has some sentiments that were fun to add to my layout. 

I love that the smile stamp fits perfectly onto the double ended flag die from SENTIMENT STRIPS. The Instaframe was cut from Steel Grey.

 I also added  a long border with the NOTEBOOK EDGE DIE-NAMICS.  It's been awhile since I had used that one. Forgot how cut it is.  I wrapped some Shore  Twine around the edge of the die cut piece (hiding that seam, again) and then added the "say Cheese" speech bubble. Again, MFT always thinks of the little things. This stamp fits the smallest, SAY WHAT DIE-NAMICS. 

The title was done with two of our alphabet dies-HIGHRISE UPPER ALPHABET and the BY THE LETTERS LOWERCASE APLHABET. I placed them on top of one of the FISHTAIL FLAG LAYERS STAX DIE-NAMCIS (I just extended the length of it to make it a little longer. You can see how I did that HERE.   

I tucked in an INSTERT IT DIE-NAMICS piece behind my title (like the sketch shows) and added a little journaling and the "best day ever" from ACCENT IT-STORY STARTERS

Here is the sketch for this month's Challenge. 

or if you are working a PL album, here is that version of the sketch. Both Sketches use the same keyword: MFTSCRAP3.

We sure hope you'll play along. don't be scared, just jump in and make a page. There's a Prize up for about a  there will be a random draw each month from all the participants who have uploaded their Scrap Samples to SCS using the proper keyword ( MFTSCRAP3)
