January New Challenge by Devra

Reader Dedra submitted this layout for the January New Challenge. She said:

Great Challenge. I have tried 2 new things so far this month but I do not know if I can enter 2 LOs. I like your blog and am going to try to participate more often.

I have never masked over a stamp before I use this journal stamp all the time, but this time, I needed it to be blank in the middle. I couldn't remember exactly how to do it, but I figured it out and it turned out ok! I used it at the top to list some of the expressions my son has on his face. I used half of the journal spot at the far right edge of the LO to continue and finish the title.
Here is the link to my blog post in case you have any problems: http://mycreativeview.blogspot.com/2012/01/been-busy-creating.html
Thank you!
