You're My Favourite Deputy!

Yes, you! ;)

This month's Sarah's Cards Challenge has been launched over on the it's Oscars month we decided to go with a movie-themed challenge.

For my take on this, I was inspired by the Toy Story Movies, and in particular Woody's line "You're my Favourite Deputy" could I not use this to scrap a picture of my niece and I?!

With a view on saving storage space and money, I've started scrapping in A4 rather and 8.5x11, it means that they can be put in acid free polypockets in ordinary ring binders, which is of course much cheaper than ordinary albums and takes up a lot less space! I'm still getting to grips with the fiddly size though, especially as I always leave a 1/4 inch border all around my pages.

To make my title I used a variety of fonts, including this MME Funday pre-printed "favourite" chipboard tag,
and some graph alphas from Jilly Bean. The #1 and star chipboard embellies were also from the MME pack:
Big emphasis on stars on this page in reference to being sheriff. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on a piece of woodgrain paper to make this cool textural star border - I picked it up on ebay agggges ago really cheaply and I'm glad I've finally put it to good use!
Another of the MME chipboard tags and a couple of punched stars add a little interest in the bottom left corner.
I really enjoyed making the page, it was nice to team up older patterned papers (the Sassafrass feather pattern) and alphas (the Jilly Bean ones) with newer items (the Studio Calico grid paper and the MME chipboard pieces), as well as making use of a bargain purchase I'd had a while but not yet cracked open. This really is my favourite type of scrapping - pulling all sorts of elements together on one page.

So if you fancy a crack at our Movie-themed challenge, hop on over to the Sarahs Cards blog to see what the rest of the DT created and to link us up to your own could be in with the chance to win yourself a nice little £20 e-voucher for the shop, just in time for the arrival of all the new CHA goodies!! Go!

Thanks for stopping by as always,
