The Story of Procuring a Smile

I haven't had nearly as much time as I would have liked this month to take on any challenges. But here's one that I managed to sqeeze in at the last minute.

Now you might not be able to tell at first glance, but I actually used the sketch at ScrapFIT to inspire this layout. Things just kinda morphed a little bit as I went along. Like turning the banner into the border of arrows, changing the position of the title, and adding all my necessary journaling.

We haven't had a family photo taken in a while, and certainly not one of us all dressed up to the nines. But we had the extraordinary Lisa from Loysh Photography snap this shot of us at our recent Church Ball, and despite the fact that Moodles needed to be tickled to procure a smile (which is why she has such a funny look on her face!) this was a moment that I'm sure I'll scrap more than once.

Do you love the "Blessings" photo frame though? I do (even though it got slightly mangled in my machine.... still totally usable!) It's supposed to be cut as a journaling card and comes in a set of six different designs that will be released as part of our exclusive Jenni Bowlin Kit Cuts in November. You'll definitely want to check this one out, and I'll post more details when it goes live.

And speaking of JBS... have you seen this advertised?

This challenge is being hosted by and there's some amazing JBS prizes up for grabs. Now I've just checked it out, and we've only got one entry so far! And there's two prizes to be given away which means.... good odds hey!! Check out all the details here.



  1. I love your take on the ScrapFIT sketch, thanks so much for joining in. I don't think my layout ended up like the sketch either!

  2. I love your LO! and those arrows!! thanks for playing along with ScrapFIT

  3. What a great page! LOVE how all the bright colors really pop off your black base, and the long title is ever so FUN!
