Summer Lovin' Scrapping Challenge AND a Fabulous Find!!!!!!!

It is summer and the living is easy! So how about a scrapping challenge on this blog??? While summers are generally less structured, sometimes it is hard to motivate myself to create even though the mind is willing. A challenge just spurs me on. So are you interested???

On Tuesdays and Thursdays I will post a layout and a card, respectively on the blog. You lift an element, any element of the sample and create a card from the layout and a layout from the card. You can choose to do one challenge or both challenges; it's up to you! I'm easy!!! So you could lift the colours, maybe the cluster of embellishments or the general design...really, anything your heart desires, you can lift it. I am not picky in the least - I just want to see us all scrapping!

When you have completed your lift, link me up in the comments, ok? I want to put your name in the draw for a prize that has been generously donated from Sandy. I'll make the draw at the end of the summer, after the final challenge.

So you ready??? Below is the challenge layout in which you lift elements to create a card.


Supplies:  Basic Grey (pattern papers, borders, chipboard, title, cardstock stickers, title); Kaisercraft (gems); American Crafts (pen for journaling); coluzzle. Created for Valerie Salmon Sketch #100.

And....as promised...the supplies in the challenge layout is my latest Fabulous Find. Gosh, the Basic Grey Green at Heart collection of papers and accents are simply...A-MAZING!!!!!!! The colours and patterns in this collection are truly one of the most versatile collections they have put out. I found that I could use the collection for girl dominant photos, for nature photos, for the manly man in your life, vacation photos and sports photos....I think you will agree that is pretty darn versatile! LOL And the embellishments...oh my! There are SO many that while I have only snippets of scraps left, I have tonnes of chipboard, brads and rub ons left. The strength of Basic Grey is that these accents can be used with their other collections as well...and that I did!


Don't forget to show me your card!
