To be honest, life has been busy and for a while, I removed myself from social media as well as following my regular blogs. I haven't even scrapped! shocker I know. 2 weeks ago I managed to get away and fly to Salt Lake City. I then drove 11 hours to Wenatchee, WA. I went to "Camp Wanna." I had an absolute BLAST! I so needed to get away and these women..... oh my! My ribs still hurt. I had so much fun. And the fact that I actually got layouts done, well, that was just lagniappe! I managed 5 two page layouts which total 10! Yep, got lucky I guess especially in between the shenanigans! I will post those later. However, I did manage a few more in the last 2 days. My friends are on design teams on different sites. They have "Challenges" on these sights. Well, I managed to complete 3!! I KNOW!
Let me start with Child's Play Blog. This is based on children's toys, books, etc. This month's challenge is based on a child's storybook, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear." Here is my interpretation:
I used my dog, Riley as the subject. The title is: puppy dog puppy dog What Do You See?
Another blog of inspiration that I did a layout for is Scrapstuffz. Here she uses colors as inspiration. Here is the inspiration photo:
And here is my take on it:
I had fun with this one and thoroughly am happy with the way it turned out!
Now, the LAST one I played on is CSI, This one has a monthly challenge as well as a weekly one. You are given "clues" to try and solve the case! LOL You are given a "Scene" which are the color scheme. The a list of "Evidence" which are embellishments and such. Then, "Testimony" which is your journaling. Here is the Case File which is due on the 18th:
Here is my take on it!
I ended up turning it on it's side. I'm happy with it. Trying to definitely get out of my comfort zone!
Now, there is one that is open all month long. These are special 365 cases. Here is the case:
And here is mine:
Well, that's it. I managed 4 layouts in 2 days!! What I really NEED to do now is reorganize my paper!! I am finding stacks everywhere!
Okay, that's it for now. Since I am engrossing myself in these Challenge Blogs, it will make me post here! So, be on the lookout for the next one!
