The new challenge is up over at "How Much is to Much" and I thought I would also combine Color Combos Galore 193 as I will be away for the weekend on a retreat and will not have access to internet.
Over at HMITM its all about celebrating National Geek Pride Day. Now, I know we all have a little geek inside of us. Let's scrap about it! Show us in a layout something that's a little geeky about you (or a loved one)! We'll be using prime numbers on our layout. The great thing about his Challenge is you don't have it done until the 5th June.
2 photos - check
a 3 word title - check
5 different patterned papers - 3 Strips,1 background and flowers cut from another.
7 stickers - smaller photo matted on MM Sticker journal shape, 2 JBowlin Buttterfly stickers, 1 MM border sticker, 2 JB Circle Numbers, clear word on smaller phot.
11 metal items - 7 flower eyelets, 2 number brads, 1 round eyelet and butterfly pin.
13 buttons - found 9 leaf clear button shaped leaves in my stash and inked them green, 1 large pink button and 1 small flower button stitched on top, 1 for the dot in the title and 1 for the centre of the flower.
These are such a fun challenge, why???? Because it gets you using stash that you probably forgot you had, and it uses up photos that are laying around. I don't print photos to suit what I am going to do nor do I take photos so I can make a pretty page. I scrap purely for enjoyment and to capture a moment that I want to preserve. For me its not about taking my kids out for a photo shoot and hoping that a moment will happen, I want my kids to look back through my albums and remember times we had not photo shoots I created. With that said I hope you enjoy seeing my pages and the story that I have tried to capture with both photos and art.
Thanks for any comments you may leave.
