1. Include hidden journaling about the event that inspired your layout. (you can see that the WAAAARGHHH!!! is used as a handle to pull out additional journaling, detailing what I wanted to capture initially in this "photo shoot": The Boy's favorite toys.)
2. Draw or doodle a border to a picture on the layout. (The "explosive" edging around the main photo and journaling was penned.)
3. Make one prominent item one that isn’t a traditional scrapbooking element. Leave the paper crafting section of your local craft store – or leave the craft store alltogether – to find an interesting focal point for your project.
4. Write about it – if you have a blog, or if you post the project to an online gallery, write a description of the event that inspired the project. When you put your layout in the mini-gallery, leave a comment with a link to the blog post or gallery entry. (You're reading it.)
The layout is from Coordinates Collection's March single page sketch challenge. I added an extra photo instead of some of the decorative edging in the column and I flipped the layout since my photos were facing left but other than that, for once I stayed pretty true to the sketch.
