For fun Challenge 08/17/2011

CHALLENGES:

1) For Fun Challenge– This week we are having a scrap page challenge. That’s it just make a scrap page. I’m sure you have a page that is sitting on your desk just waiting to be finished or a photo you want to scrap but haven’t had the time (that was me!!). This was the push I needed to take a break from the cards and make a scrap page. Which was refreshing since it has been 6 months since I made a page.

2) Lasting Memories Layout Challenge – TRY SOMETHING NEW! This is my first scrapbook page using a digital stamp. I think I have found a new way to add embellishments to my page. This was totally easy and fun.

Friends of ours had twins (Honor and Brogan) in May so my husband and I instantly became Aunt and Uncle again. They are adorable and we love taking photos of them so I’m sure there will be plenty of layouts done with them as the subject!! The cute fairy on there is a digital stamp by Wee Stamps. I colored it in using photo shop as I didn’t have time to use markers and I wanted it to look like an embellishment. My husband said he would teach me about shadows and other neat effects Photoshop can do but I’m a little scared to try that stuff!!

This was inspired by a Pagemap sketch but I can’t find it now to state which Pagemaps it is from but if I find it  I will update my post.

Alphabet Challenge Blog - N is for Navy plus one color

I thought this image was so cute that I decided to make it into a card. I wanted to do the Alphabet Challenge so I decided I would use the fairy image and made it orange and blue! The image was colored in Photoshop. I hope that even with a little bit of cream color that it fits the challenge since the main colors are Navy blue and Orange. I also think this makes a cute birthday card so I will add a Birthday sentiment to the inside.

CHALLENGES:

1) Alphabet Challenge Blog – N is for Navy plus one other color. Our challenge for you this week is  N for Navy Blue Plus One Other Colour.  These are the 2 main colours we want to see on your work, not just a little bit used in with lots of other colours!  Hopefully I have made the instructions clear as there was some confusion on the last colour theme we did.

2) August Card Challenge @ www.scrapbook.com – Photo Inspiration category. I took inspiration from the orange and blue combo with white flowers.

3) A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #162 – Happy Birthday. I will put a birthday sentiment inside the card.
