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.
