Challenge 4

Well, didn't this challenge stir up some controversy? I have to say, I freaked out when I first read it and, to be perfectly honest, I really struggled to create my two Artist Trading Cards.

Here's our preview:

And here are my cards -

For both of my cards I used my Be Mine, Valentine and add-on, which will be available soon ;) I found I enjoyed creating Jane's card more than the first one and I really like how it has turned out. I hope she does too :)

I'll let Jane post her cards and tell you about them if she wants to. so, until Challenge 5, bye!

Becky's Challenge 2 LO

I really struggled with what to do for this one. The whole having to have the number 5 in a photo really threw me. The idea I eventually went with came about because I thought I would take a photo of the DVD cover of one of our favourite TV shows - season 5, but when I got it out it was spelled out instead of the number so I decided to search for something else to fit my idea and came up with playing cards. I was sooo relieved.

Heart of the Matter - A Digiridoo Scraps Collab
Fonts - Pea Olson, Pea Sarahloo, Angelina, Problem Secretary
Both Jane and I kind of went in the same direction, without even knowing. Right down to using love based mega kits from different stores!!
Can't wait for challenge #3! How are you guys all going with the challenges?

Becky's 1st Challenge

I can't beieve we're up and running already! When I signed up I remember thinking that is was a long time away and now here we are, posting our very first challenge. Where has the time gone??

Jane's posted the rules for challenge 1 here. Basically, we had to scraplift one of our partner's layouts to make a layout about them.

I lifted this one of Jane's, as I love the composition of it.

and this is my layout

1st Challenge is up.

 first challenge is up!
Here are the rules for this challenge:

1) Your layout is about your partner. Introduce your partner to us. How you do this is entirely up to you. You can interview them, you can send them a questionnaire, you can use 5 words that best describe them, you can journal how you met for this race, or if you've been partners for years, you can make your page about a friendship that started with a crazy internet race and has since turned into so much more. The only rule is, the layout is about your partner and you need to tell us something about them.

2) You must include at least one photo of your partner. Large, small, color, b&w, of their face, back of their head, feet, whatever. But it must be a picture of your partner.

3) You must choose one layout from your partner's gallery and scraplift that as the page design for your layout. Only the placement of items is needed. You don't have to lift the colors, theme, etc. Just the overall placement of papers, elements, title and journaling.

Becky has so many beautiful LO's in her Gallery it was hard to pick 1.. but i finally choose her LO called messy misses to scraplift.

and here's mine.
