Unscripted Sketches 187 Remember This

This week's challenge at Unscripted Sketches is a great layout for a card. While playing around with it, I realized it would also make a good layout for a scrapbook page.

The following page contains pictures from Thanksgiving last year (2011). As my Pastor always reminds us, the important things in life are God, people and time. This year was the perfect example of just how blessed we are as we were able to celebrate with loved ones from both my husband's family and my mom's side.

Project Notes: I really like the larger plaid pattern and didn't want to waste any by having it unseen behind the smaller pattern, so I trimmed out the center portion. 

To use this idea, insert your paper into  your trimmer so that the right edge is on the outer 1" mark. 

Align the blade 1" down and cut until you reach the 11" inch mark. 

Repeat on the other three sides and you will have a frame.
