Scrap FX: August Reveal #1!!

 **For my giveaway, please go HERE**

Hey there everyone!! Hope you're all having a great weekend so far- I'm hoping to accomplish some scrappy tasks- but wanted to make sure I got on here to post my first Scrap FX reveal for August!!

A new month means a new theme at Scrap FX, and this month it’s travel! I’m a bit tied down with having three children ages 4 and under, so I really don’t get to travel much- other than locally. So I decided to create a page about why I love my state- and chose to scrap a photo of my daughter by the lake. The abundant number of bodies of water here has earned Minnesota the title “Land of 10,000 Lakes”~ and it is most definitely one of my favorite things about where I live :).

"(Love) Minnesota"

Let’s take a closer look at the Scrap FX chipboard used in this piece…

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Scrap FX has a HUGE supply of chipboard titles and I LOVE them!! This particular piece was specially made for me as my state wasn’t included in the available travel-themed wordlets- take a look at the hoard included in the collection HERE.

What travel layout wouldn’t be complete without a compass? I love adding chipboard to my flower clusters and this one fit right in :) . I’ve simply painted it white before using a flourish stamp over top and inking the edges.

Flourishes like this one (Flourish Z) are a staple for any chipboard stash!

I love the backdrop frames that come in the frame packs (like Decorative Frame A Artsy). They’re perfect for adding that “something extra” to your photos :) .
