Scraptastic Club | Thursday Challenge...

Hello Friends!  It's time to issue a challenge!  Have you noticed how popular Instagram is becoming within the scrapbooking community? I personally love this form of photo sharing social media!  It's a great way to upload images quickly and easily! And as a creative forum, there is always plenty of inspiration being shared. 

But what do you do with the photos after they've been shared? Do you print them out? And do you scrap them??  If not, today's challenge over at Scraptastic Club is to encourage you to break into your Instagram account, print off your favourite photos and scrap them.
 
I will admit that my Instagram photos are used frequently on my layouts.  I am inspired to use them as there is often a story to be told.  (Also, as a side note, my Instagram account is a terrific source for remembering all those details for Project Life, when I am in catch up mode!!!)
 
With this month's The Girl kit, in mind, I went through my Instagram photos and created this layout.
 
 
My daughter and two young nieces, were happy to play along with a mini photo shoot at a recent family gathering.  They really adore each other and I wanted to mimic their closeness with central layers of patterned paper from the kit.
 
 
I also love the white borders that frame Instagram photos.  I think of the border as an extra 'hug' to wrap around the image of the girls.
 
 
The rest of the layout has been created with touches of gold and embellishments which highlight the colours from the photo.
 
 
If you would like to join in with the challenge, head on over to Scraptastic to check out the details.  Thanks for visiting..x
