The first challenge I completed was the Bright and Cheery challenge. We were to scrap a Spring or Summer photo with bright cheery colours. I came up with Spring Beauty, a layout of the beautiful iris that grew beside our driveway last Spring. I stamped the flourishes then added Black Diamond Stickles to them.
The second challenge I did was the Card Sketch challenge. We were given a great sketch to work from and I created my card. I used October Afternoon papers and a cute stamp set from Prima. I actually really like this card.
The final challenge that I completed before the deadline was the Embrace challenge. We were required to use the word 'embrace', add some bling and use one tag. I used this beautiful diecut paper and bracket overlay from My Little Yellow Bicycle, some Prima bling and a tag I punched out. I stamped it with a Studio G stamp, then used my Gelly Roll clear star pen on it and to trace the title letters (Pink Paisley). I even outlined the overlay with Glossy Accents.
Thank you to the awesome ladies on the Scrapping Bug Design Team for a great crop!!!!
By the way, if you are interested in a really fun year long scrapping challenge, check out The Scrapping Bug's Page of the Month Kit Program. Each month they will offer a great two page layout kit packed full of embellishments in a type of Book of Me format. It's a great way to scrap some meaningful pages about yourself. Check it out!!! I'm pretty excited about it myself!!!!
