Denise and I just finished up our second crazy challenge.
Here is the layout of her ds that she made today. Isn't it great??!!
It is so fun and exhilarating to do these timed challenges. It really gets your heart pumping and your scrap area a mess!!! LOL
Denise got to pick the sketch this time and she picked a super cool one from SketchyThursdays. That was so smart of her because now we can enter it into that challenge and have a chance to win the prize!! woo hoo! I also plan to enter it in the SketchesinThyme challenge. Their Open Sketch Challenge is to pick your own sketch.
Paper blocking usually takes more time for me. Picking out the right papers, cutting the connecting blocks carefully...etc. etc.
But not this time! Things were flying around my desk (and off it-ha). (I forgot to take pictures...I will do it next time)
I used pictures that are of two of my son's biological sister. Mei mei means little sister in Chinese.
Their biological mother is raising this sister and we were lucky to get pictures for the boys to have.
My older son was thrilled to see this layout of his sister.
We were only allowed to add: chipboard, distress (ink allowed), a quote and a white pen.
I used paper from a GCD Studios pad I got at Big Lots and some chipboard from Scenic Route. I inked up the chipboard letters and flowers and added white dots to the middle of the flowers with my white pen. Distressed the edges of the paper and inked them. And I printed out a quote onto my patterned paper. Voila!
I'm all pumped up and ready to do it again! But that girl, Denise is being a spoilsport and wants to eat lunch instead. haha
