April Challenge #3: Ephemera Encapsulated

This month we've been inspired by the shabby-chic and vintage loveliness found in the C'est Magnifique February Kits. and have been having a lot of fun bringing back some 'old school' techniques and styles! For our final challenge of the month, we're heading back to the very basics of scrapbooking and asking you to create a project that 'encapsulates ephemera'.

Challenge #3: Choose a little bit of everyday life to incorporate into a project this month. Use it on a layout, in a mini-book; add it to an off the page project; or simply stick it in a note book with a little bit of journalling - just like when you were a teenager! 

Our Guest Designer, Louise Brooks, created this lovely layout. Visit her blog for more details on what she has 'encapsulated'.

Leslie's pause for a spot of tea provided her bit of ephemera.


Clair included several little bits of ephemera in this delightful, little mini-album. See more details (and the full mini-album) on her blog.

Margie made a page with some of her son's school artwork:
