I haven't scrapped in over a week and decided I needed motivation. Checked out a few challenge blogs and found a couple I haven't tried before. Made notes, packed my rolling scrap case and off to my cousin's house I went. Below are the two layouts I did for the challenges.
This layout, Be You, was for the eyelet challege on Scrap Your Crap. You had to use at least fifteen eyelets. I could have used thousands and I still would have had plenty of eyelets left to last me another fifty years or 1200 layouts, whichever came first. Anyway...my friend, Liz - a.k.a Karen, is a Crazy Crap Scrapper for Scrap Your Crap. You need to check out her blog, especially her Ew to New projects. She is crazy creative. Crazy I say. Oh and she designs blogs, blinkies and banners for blogs, so if you need one check out her blog and email her. Cool.
This layout, Good Humor, was titled that because I wanted ice cream at the time. Well, also because Jake cracks me up endlessly. The layout was done for The Dares color challenge. Use one color and stick to it. So I did and had no trouble doing so. The less thinking I have to do, the better.
I would highly recommend trying out a challege site, if you are ever stuck and need a nudge. Why not try? There are a ton of challenge sites out there, but here are a few to get you started:
I would love if you would share any challenge sites you have checked out and liked. I need all the help I can get!
