You know what my layouts are usually like...3 or 4 or 5 patterned papers, lots of embellishments, usually a bit of fussy cutting to make it all look nice and lumpy bumpy and layered. Well, you can probably imagine what I thought when I got a challenge to do a layout using ONLY these things - 1 sheet of shaped paper (and that was the ONLY bit of paper I could use for the whole thing!!!),2 ribbons, 3 alphabets, 2 chipboard pieces, staples, masking tape and string .
This was the recipe challenge that I took part in for the latest issue of Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. When I read what I had to do, I was like - What The? Only 1 sheet of paper??? Masking tape????
Well, after lots of thinking about it, I finally came up with this...
I couldn't seem to get a good pic of this one, my white background kept coming up bluish, but you get the idea. See the flower I made out of the masking tape? Thought I was pretty clever doing that, lol. You can see what the other 3 scrappers did with this challenge on pg92 of this months SBM (vol 12 no 10).
Well, I think that's about all the computer time I can sneak in at the moment. I've promised to read the kids 2 chapters of their book tonight, instead of 1, so I'd better go and have a cup of tea and prepare myself. Lol, I miss those days when I could skip whole paragraphs and they were none the wiser. These days, they follow the words as I'm reading, and always pick me up on it if I skip bits!!!
Hope you are having a great week :)
