ScrapShanty Birthday Challenges


I've been working hard (hahaha, yeah right, lol) at some challenges that are being hosted at Scrapshanty! They've been celebrating their birthday and have some really great challenges! And I actually got a couple of them done! WOW!

The first challenge I participated in was the "birthday bash challenge". We were to create a 2 page layout, using the specified sketch, and we had to use buttons, ribbon, numbers, and strip journalling. I chose Lore's birthday to crop, since those pictures were on my table.

Then you had to create a card using the scraps of the layout...not that hard and sort of nice to go right into the card since all the stuff was already there, lol.

I added some studs that I have had for ages...I will say that the studs weren't the easiest things to work with. The studs came off on my fingers, the glue was horrible too! I have quite a bit of the studs left, but I don't know if I'll be using them again anytime soon.

Time being what it was (short), I combined 2 other challenges, Think Pink and Do Me Ad...and I'm really happy with the way it came out.

Mia was 2 months old when this portrait was taken, she was so cute! I had the one pose printed in the sepia tone, and it's one of my favorites. When I finish the second page, I'll post it.

"27" Page/Birthday card details:
Paper - Tinkering Ink Gibson (this paper is double-sided)
Embellishments - Buttons Galore, numbers - Tinkering Ink, random ribbons, Say It With Studs
