Challenges galore

If you read this blog for a while you probably noticed that I love scrapbooking challenges! I was happy to find out that in addition to the great challenges hosted by the Scrapbook Express DT in the forum, there are Scrapbook Express blog challenges hosted by the super talented blog team. There are 4 or 5 challenges each month, each entry gets you a chance to win $25 gift certificate to the store. Pretty awesome if you ask me. But there is a catch - in order for a gift certificate to be given, there must be at least 15 different entries for the month. Sadly, last month they didn't have 15 participants. I don't think it should ever happen again! I am going to do my part, what about you? :) I will just say it again - $25 to the store...

The first challenge of this month was color challenge - use pink, cream and one accent color. I added purple to my pink and cream and made this layout. The picture is from February 2002. I used bunch of old products here and it feels good. Hurry up, this challenge is due today November 3rd!

Supplie: cardstock (unknown), patterned paper (Melissa Frances, Anna Griffin, Making Memories), scallop border (Doddlebug), letter stickers (SEI), flower (CK), flourish sticker (K&Company), raindots (Cloud 9), ribbon (unknown), border punches (Fiskars, Martha Stewart), scallop circle punch (Fiskars)

I made this layout for one of the challenges last month. It is based on this sketch.

Supplies: patterned paper (American Crafts, Colorbok), rub-ons (Colorbok), journaling tag (Kaiser Craft), circle and scallop punches (Fiskars), buttons (Doddlebug), pens (Sakura)

Here is another challenge for you - November sketch at Crafting Jewish Style. I used Passover kit to make this layout about getting ready for Shavuot. More old photos - this time from 2001. I just love looking at the photos of my girls from their baby years. Am I getting too old?

Supplies: cardstock (Wausau paper), patterned paper (Crafting Jewish Style), ribbon (Crafting Jewish Style), dollies (Martha Stewart), chipboard letters (Basic Grey), epoxy flowers (Cloud 9)
