MCAS 2 Easter Party Layout

For the past 4 weeks, I have been participating in a "Slow" scrap at Scrap Orchard and Gottapixel. Each week we were given instructions on what we were allowed to add to our layouts. Once we uploaded our layout to the challenge gallery each week, we were not allowed to move any of our photos or elements in the subsequent weeks. That part was a bit scary for me because I am always moving and tweaking things as I work on a layout.

In week 1, we were to start our layout with 3 papers and 3 photos. This is how I started my layout. I used papers from Irene Alexeeva's Junk Treasures Page Kit:

In week 2, we had to add 2 fasteners (buttons, staples, brads); 3 ribbons (ric rac, ribbon wraps, straight or folded or curled ribbons); 1 set of stitches.

I added staples and rick rack from Irene Alexeeva's Fly High Page Kit and stitches from the Junk Treasures kit.

In week 3, our instructions were to:

* Add AT LEAST 4 Decorative elements to the layout- These can include doodles, flourishes, flowers, animals, splats/spills, unique elements ect.... Whatever embellishments fit within the layout you are working on- YOU CAN NOT however add more ribbons, stiches or fastners to count toward element count for this week. (since those were prior instructions)

*Add 1 element for writing - Such as a label, tag or journaling block/mat

I added a journaling label from Irene Alexeeva's Pink Mood Page Kit. Everything else that I added came from the Junk Treasure kit.

And in the final week, we were instructed to add a title using 2 separate Alpha's and at least 4 lines of journaling.

I made my title with alphas I made from papers from the Junk Treasures kit. I used the font AL Hurried Note for "MCAS 2" and I used 2 Peas Scrumptious for "Easter Party."

I used the font Pea Karen's Print for the journaling and the date.

And here is my final layout:
