Pinterest Challenge Layout

A few weeks ago, I challenged myself to be inspired by Pinterest, and I took my challenge literally. As I was trying to decide on a project from my Scrapbook Inspiration board, I realized that I actually liked the grid design of the board itself...
There was a challenge over at Two Peas in a Bucket in the Stashbusters thread to use "I Heart" in the title or do a page about favorites. So I decided to combine my challenge with that one and came up with this layout...
I think the hardest and most time consuming part was typing the journaling. Well that and trying to get my photos to stay flat. I am finding that I am not super happy with the Instagram printing source I have been using - Kanvess. The photos actually didn't seem to be cut straight and they roll up on the edges. It is really hard to adhere them to my pages.

But it's a page I am glad that I did! How about you? Has anyone taken me up on my challenge yet?
Would love to see your projects if you did either here in the comment section or on the Facebook page.

Also, Paper Issues has a new "issue" on the blog this week. It is a Halloween challenge and the prize is a set of Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists. They are really gorgeous mists. I just received five of them in my most recent package. The only thing you have to do to be entered in the contest is to link up Halloween projects on this post. They can be new or old projects.
Next Monday is my day to post to the Paper Issues blog, so I will be looking for linked up projects to feature. Hoping to share some familiar faces :)

Thanks for stopping by the Nest today!
