Well fellow scrappers...I've definitely caught the "bug". I am totally addicted to entering contests AND doing challenges:)
Not only do I LOVE the anticipation, but I LOVE seeing all of the entries to see how my fellow scrappers have interpreted the sketch. It's great to have a starting point (the sketch), as well as having the creative freedom to choose your own colors, photos, format, etc. I love the ability to "tweek" these amazing sketches to match my style.
I found this challenge on a great site I found called Mothers and Daughters Creations. A direct link to the challenge is http://mdcchallenges.blogspot.com/.
I had lots of fun using some of the Basic Grey papers from the "huge" stash I won at the SD Expo layout contest back in August. Of course, I just had to mix in a few papers from other lines, too. I just love mixing and matching papers from various manufacturers. Some of the embellies are from class kits I took at the expo and some are from the October TNT kit (Tuesday Tips ,n Techniques book club I lead at Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, CA).
