Colorful Creations - SYTYCS

Well I'm finally back home, although happy to be home its the catching up on everything from being away.

I did find a day to catch up on some of my friends blogs and with friends for our first scrap day of the year. 

Over at Colorful Creations we kicked of this year with a competition called "So You Think You Can Scrap".  Weekly we are given a challenge and a criteria that has to be met or we a eliminated.

We are up to week 5 now and its been great to see the different takes on each challenge.  

This weeks challenge was to use a sketch, distressing, tearing and a recycled product.

Here is my take

I have used two paper ranges here Authentique and My Minds Eye.  I cut the circle with my Nestabilities grand circle dies using a scrap piece really old Basic Grey paper and I have also machine stitched a couple of times creating the circle as well.  My recycled items is just under the word Joy it was the packaging left from the MME pearl swirl that I have embellished my page with.

The photos are of my daughter using my Ipad with Instagram, love the effect.

Products used:  Authentique Collection "Fresh", MME & Alpha Stickers, Pearls and  Äll is Bright" papers, Prima blooms, inks, Quickutz & Nestabilities dies, Heidi Grace rubons and odds and ends from stash.

Thanks for looking and for you lovely comments that you take the time out to leave, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
