HI again, I know, I know it has been awhile....all good excuses but just the same, I have missed blogging a bit. So....off to today's post.
I learned about a new challenge blog via the Canadian Scrapbooker blog, and now I cannot find that post, about including yourself in your scrapbook pages. This blog challenges you with a sketch and some colour choices for you to include yourself in your pages, you have a full month to do this. This month's challenge can be found here .... challengeYOURself blog, we are to use this sketch and these colours to do our creation.
This is what I created:
Now you have to remember I am camping at the moment, and do so for a good chunk of the summer, so I have limited supplies and tools with me. It is a good challenge to YOURself to limit your supplies sometimes. I had grabbed the supplies before I left or when I go home once a week to do the laundry and cut the lawn. The local No Frills store where I camp has a special every summer of ten cents per photo for printing, so the first week or so here I organize my photos to see what to print. After reading the blog and thinking on it, I made sure to choose a few pics of myself to get printed. I also grabbed some of the special paper kits we at Close to my Heart have had over the last few years, that I have not used up. This one uses Dreampop with the background being from the current seasonal inspiration idea book Blossom. Stamp set used is D1647 Documenting moments from the seasonal expressions 2 idea book, a fun stamp set with lots of uses and; stamped in slate ink our journaling pen for the journaling. If you are interested in purchasing any of these supplies you can always go to my webpage and get some new items for yourself. Happy scrapping.
