This month’s Nerd Nest Challenge is to Capture a Feeling.

With your photos, words, and / or art on your page, try to evoke a specific emotion. You may have an emotional story you want to share, you may want to capture the magic of the holiday season, or you might make a page that gives a sense of your life in chaos or in peace.


For this page, documenting Jonas’s first day of school this summer, I wanted to capture excitement. His excitement shines through the photos and I wanted the page to reflect that as well.


I used a 12×12 acetate page with small and large circles along with a circle background with lighter spotted paper, both of which are reminiscent of confetti and add to the feeling of excitement. So did the sparkly stars, which remind me of the stickers he comes home with when he does a good job at school.


I’d love to see your take on the challenge! Share a link in the comments or use the hashtag #nerdnestchallenge on social media!

Remember that you can do anything you’d like for this challenge–it doesn’t just have to be scrapbooking!
