I've participated in this event "from afar" for the last few years. I always look forward to the challenges and donating to a good cause. This year it also came at a time that enabled me to finish my 50 page challenge!!! YAY!! I CAN SHOP!!
Here are my pages and the challenge that inspired them:
Challenge 1: This layout is a double page 12x12. The challenge was to utilize a sketch for your layout.
Challenge 2: 8x8 featuring my oldest son, Cody. The layout had to have stars, buttons, arrows and circles.
Challenge 3: This 12x12 layout was created from the challenge of using non-traditional and traditional colors on a holiday page. This is my daughter and close family friend Olivia on Halloween.
Challenge 4: This is a 12x12 layout featuring my head. The journaling is about my friend Patti H in Canada who sent me the hat as a gift after a trip East to visit her. I kept saying "eh" in true Canadian fashion...but then was silly enough to wonder how that is actually spelled. The challenge was to do mostly black and white with a splash of color and to use ink and ribbon.
Challenge 5: This is my husband and I in Fiji on our 25th Anniversary. The challenge involved scraplifting a page from Scrapjazz.com. This layout is 12x12:
Challenge 6: This is also 12x12 and features Olivia. The challenge was to use orange, pink, ribbon and scallops. My scallop is one of the strips behind the picture.
Challenge 7: This 12x12 follows the challenge of using white space. This is my oldest son, Cody, hoping to catch a glimpse of a whale on the Oregon Coast last year.
Challenge 8: This is a 12x12 of my poor dog Hamish after a scuffle with one of the other dogs landed him with a dislocated hip. The challenge was to do a layout with an animal on it.
