Tell Us Your Secrets

Good morning again. This week at Lasting Memories, the challenge is all about Secret ideas. This can be hidden journaling, some hidden photos or a hidden treasure. We want you to show us how you hide something in your layout.

For my layout, I used the current sketch at Sketches in Thyme. I thought it was perfect for how I wanted to hide a couple of elements on the page.


I decided that I would use a photo that I had taken of all of the ribbons that Willie earned at his first agility trial in June. Last week in the mail, I had received the certificate that he earned for advancing a title and I wanted to include it on a layout. So here is my page....


The mat that the photo is on is actually the cover for my hidden area. I scanned the certificate and printed it small enough to fit inside this area. I also printed a small photo of my very favorite picture of Willie from that day. The photo has already been scrapped, but I just love it so much. I included details of the runs that earned him the new title below the photo.


When I place this layout into the page protector, I will use a utility knife to cut around the area that opens so that the details can be viewed at any time.

I am using this page for my 52 Week's Challenge entry this week at Scrappin'-n-Chattin'. I am so excited that I have been able to keep up with this challenge, for 33 weeks. I haven't even needed to use a pass yet. It will also be entered into the Ticket challenge SnC which is part of the regular monthly challenges in the group this month. I used a ticket that came with my latest Artful Delight kit.

Hop on over to LM and discover the Design Team's secret. They have created wonderful pages. Remember, too, that LM is having a DT call. If you are interested in serving on the team in the next term all you have to do to qualify is to follow all of the challenges in August. Karen is so creative and wonderfully nice. She's awesome to work with. I can't wait to see everyone's work.

I look forward to seeing some awesome secrets this week.
