It’s Sunday evening already and I’m done with my layouts! I did five this weekend – not that much, I could have done more if not my DH claimed for a Banana bread and a Lasagne yesterday. And today I cooked a veggie soup so I will have less stress during the week!
Yesterday morning I was a bit confused about the amount of different challenges you could find on different blogs by different companies/people. But I was relieved when Shimelle announced that she would do some challenges for Scrapbooking Day as well – she is just lovely, right?!
So, are you curious to see my layouts?! I bet you are 😉
I started off with the first challenge: Use patterned paper for your page background.
I normally use only CS for my backgrounds so it definitely WAS a challenge for me. And please don’t call it cheating because I chose a background with only a grid 😉
The second challenge was: Create a triangle.
Easy! I’m used to that! And my triangle was really centered today:
The next challenge to use a border between two photos. Yes, I
like love that as well! There we go:
For the fourth challenge we should create a page with the story behind a photo. I thought of those photos I took in the Minack Theatre in Cornwall:
2peas also hosted challenges, hops, chats, … all weekend long and you have until next weekend to finish off your pages (with Shimelle as well)!
I started with a Starter Challenge: Scraplift a Garden Girl! I had a look at all the different Garden Girls in the Gallery, but – sorry! – I ended up with Shimelle again! I chose THAT layout and lifted it:
The “problem” was: I didn’t have those flowers from Shimelle’s layout – but you aren’t a scrapper when you can’t help yourself! So I created mine myself: with ribbon, glübers, paper flowers, buttons, brads, pearls, rhinestone, thread …. loved that!
We finally have “Glübers” by CC in the UK and I used two of them for my flowers – such a great help! They are really sticky! Next time I will use some fabric instead of the ribbon… for a more shabby look 😉
So, (totally) finished for today!
Tomorrow another week of ScrapFactor (UKScrappers) starts, we are getting our new theme in the morning and have until next Friday to finish off a layout. Can’t wait for that challenge!
And how was your weekend?! Did you scrap? Did you spend your days outside? Celebrated Mother’s Day?! I love to hear from you – as always!
Have a nice week! xxx
