ScrapFIT {blank canvas}


ScrapFIT wants to see what you can do when you start with a white background — a blank canvas. I start with a white background very often. I would guess 75% of the time I start with white, cream or kraft for my background. But this time the difference was that I wasn't also starting with a kit or a collection — I was just starting with the white paper and the photo.

It turns out that without also working with a specific kit or company in mind, that I actually used my stash. I'm so happy with how this turned out, too. I used a lot of pieces that I was hanging onto or didn't know what to do with it, but loved (like the mustache paper from Hambly).


This layout is a continuation of the mustache story from yesterday. Nate loved putting the mustache on everything, including his Angry Bird, which was hysterical to him. When have you ever seen an Angry Bird with a mustache?! LOL.

I hope you'll have a chance to play along with us at ScrapFIT. I think you'll find that starting with a white background can give you a fresh perspective.

Thanks for stopping by to see my layout!
