December Anything Goes Challenge by Karen

Design Team Member Karen submitted this layout for the December Anything Goes Challenge. She said:

Here is my submission for the December challenge
I decided to use up some photos that I took months ago before we left the Netherlands and I hadn't found a way to use them.

One day on a trip to Amsterdam I decided to take close up photos of various walls, graffiti, posters, street signs and floors. I wanted a record of the tiny details of Amsterdam but its taken me since May to find a way to scrap them.

I chose to print off 16 at the smallest size from Picassa and made a montage of them in the centre of my page- that didn't give me much space to embellish so I stuck a strip of washi tape across the middle and combined title and embellishment by making a small banner with the title on it.

Now it's your turn to take the December Anything Goes Challenge. To participate in the December Anything Goes Challenge - just  email a picture of your project along with a description to 

 All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on December  31st a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of February. This challenge ends at midnight central time on December 31st. Posted by Picasa
