Challenge #2-COMPLETE

I'm so excited with how this page turned out! I think it's one of the best that I have done. It just came together smoothly & turned out so cute. I hope that you enjoy it, as well. It was fun to do the triangle photo. I was able to use the Creative Memories cutting system so that really helped & saved myself quite abit of work.

I am also including the finished page with my first completed challenge of creative journaling.

Challenge #2

I don't know about you but, I think that most of us who are seasoned scrappers have a tendancy to forget to think outside the box. I tend to forget that there are shapes other than squares, rectangles, circles, & ovals. This week's challenge again comes from my Sept issue of Creating Keepsakes. This time the article is "4 Fun Ways 2 Break the Rules". The Rule: Photographs work best as squares or rectangles. The Challenge: Crop a photo on your next layout into a triangle!

Don't forget to let me know how yours turns out!!

Crazy Couple of Weeks

Ok, so I haven't posted as regularly has I wanted but, I have posted every week! I do have a good excuse, though, for not posting lately. Last Wednesday (9/6), I had surgery for my endometriosis & had my tubes tied. Yea! No more birth control!! ;o) Then, I had a big problem with a tooth that was a result of my surgery so I spent most of this week with a major toothache. Lastly, my dad had surgery to remove the tumor in his hip/groin area.

All that said, I was really hoping to get a new challenge posted today but that's not going to happen now because Hannah is sitting on my lap. I promise that I will get one posted Monday at the latest.

So, speaking of challenges, did anyone take my first challenge? Let me know.....

Challenge #1-COMPLETE

Ok, so I'm a little behind on getting my first challenge done! I ha surgery on Wednesday so that kind of threw a wrench in my plans. Anyway, I did get it finished last night. Because the journal blocks are 3x12, you can't see the very bottom because my scanner can't do 12x12. Oh well, you should at least get the idea.

I hope you like this one. I think it turned out pretty well. I'm anxious to do the whole page now. As soon as I do, I will post the whole page. Let me know what you think. Did you try this challenge? If so, tell me how it went....

I'll try to post a new challenge later today or first thing tomorrow.
