NSD! Scrapbook Page: Scrap Event

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
It's Day Four of ten days dedicated to scrapbook layouts.  For today's post, I thought it appropriate to feature a page I did to remember a special Scrap Event.  This crop is near and dear to my heart as it honors a friend who lost her life to domestic violence.    It's a major fundraiser for the foundation in her name and my Mom, BFF and sisters (or combos of) make this our annual fall event.  We have a great time and get silly too (see tomorrow's layout!)

I love the checked background of this paper--kind of reminds me of little sheets of paper!
I used my Cricut and SCAL software to create the letters.  I LOVE the fact that I can use almost any font for free with SCAL.  Since the paper had a shabby look, I distressed/shaded the letters with Distress Ink in a coordinating color.
I used a notebook paper embellishment for the day/date and journaled right on the bracket frame (also cut with Cricut).  A pink ribbon and bow above and a big pink jewel below the photo finish off the page.

Did you get your SVG Freebie today?  If not, hit "Home" or scroll up to grab it.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another layout!
