Good Morning Bloggers! Happy National Scrapbooking Day, and May The 4th Be With You!!! I really hope you've been playing along with the Nerds over at Scrapbook Nerd, we were so excited to party we started it yesterday!!
I have a challenge for everyone who wants to play along with us at our online crop. It's a good one!
Here it is: It's a photo inspiration challenge! Easy right?! You have to use at least 3 of these 5 colours on your layout, card, or off the page project and take your inspiration from this picture!
Here's how I was inspired:
I really loved the bohemian feel to these pictures and I was inspired by the different textures and fabrics in the photo! I also wanted to show you all that even though this is a very girly picture, you're totally not limited to scrapping pictures of girls just because of that!
I used a quote from Dr. Suess as the title of my layout and I typed it out on my computer a few times, and sewed it on my page.
I wanted to use a bunch of different mediums on this page, so I brought out my Prima stencil and my Sharpie and gave it some chevrons. I stamped my new Dina Wakley grunge stamp on the top left and bottom right by the photo too. I found this piece of Webster's Pages trimmings on the floor of my craft room after I thought I was finished this layout and thought it might look good too...so I tucked it in there and I'm kinda loving it! Yay for using up stash too! That green Prima doily is a few years old and I've been wanting to use it on something too!
I can't wait to see what inspires you!! Don't forget to link up your projects to the Nerd Gallery (also when entering your layout don't forget to note which challenge you're entering) by Monday May 6th at 11 EDT for your chance to win some goodies and a chance at the GRAND PRIZE!! For every challenge you enter you get your name in a draw to win the Big One!! It's a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the Scrapbook Nerd Store!
So get over there and get crafty and MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!!!
