The Feb 'Love Is All Around' CC at Top 50 is almost over!! We had totally awesome challenges this month, and i was able to complete them all really quickly!!
Challenge 1 is our sponsors challenge. This months sponsor was Shaz from Craft Candy!! Thanks Shaz!! So what was the challenge?? To make a valentines card of course!! :)
Here is my card. I kept it simple cos i knew it really wouldn't be appreciated if i didn't!
Challenge 2: It's The Little Things, was set by our Feb Guest DT, Julie. The challenge was to scrap about an everyday object that you love, but was not allowed to have any people in the photo. You weren't allowed to add any embellishments, and also had to ink the edges of the papers!! The chose to scrap about my expresso machine, as i really wasn't a coffee drinker when i asked for it for my birthday, but now i have it, i don't start my day with out a cappuccino, and will have 1 or 2 more through out the day!! :)
Challenge 3: Ten Things Challenge, was to scrap a layout including a 10 things i love list. The extra criteria was to use a white cardstock background, place something randomly on the page, and use an altered flower. I don't generally use flowers on my boy layouts, but i don't think this one really looks like a flower. I just used a large white bella flower, and painted blue random stripes on it. I had heaps of fun with the paint, painting the background for the photo and splashing it all around the page!!
I had so much funny doing Brodie's page that i decided to do one with the same design for Jorja!! :-)
Challenge 4: Love Song Challenge, was the challenge i set. Obviously, a love song needed to be used somewhere on the page, as well as 'white' space and distressing. Here is the example i did for the challenge.
Challenge 5: Love Hurts Challenge, was set by Sue. The challenge was to create a layout about a not so happy moment. The layout also had to include a diecut and leaves or a branch. I really love how this layout turned out!! :-)
Challenge 6: Love a Sketch Challenge, was set by Kathie. Kathie designed a sketch for us all to use, and like normal, mine ended up looking nothing like the original!! lol!! The extra criteria was to use something metal on the layout, as well as rub-ons. I used Sassfras Monstrosity pp for this challenge!! :-)
There is still a couple of hours left in the cc if you have some time and want to give any of the challenges a go. Otherwise you can check out all the ladies amazing work in the new Scrapbooking Top 50 Gallery!
