Ok...over at the Fantabulous Cricut blog, they are doing another challenge. This challenge was to use anything outdoor winter clothing related....hat, scarf, mittens, etc. I chose to use these cute little mittens and was dying to try this Winter title that I had collected somewhere. The border on the bottom was made by repeating a snowflake and then just welding it to a rectangle to make the perfect border and you all know I LOVE penguins so......here's my layout for the challenge. This is from a snowmobiling trip that we took last winter....yes I know....I said last winter.....better late than never. I don't even have this winters pictures developed yet.....it keeps me from feeling 2 years behind if I only have one year of photos! LOL.....Anyway, I like how the page has lots of fun winter elements, but still has room for four 4 x5 photos! If you would like to see what's happening at Fantabulous Cricut...here's the link to their blog and challenge. http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2011-01-13T06%3A00%3A00-07%3A00
I also received a tip from Linda about this challenge....not sure how I missed this one since I follow this blog as well, but....anyway, I am also entering it in the "Created for the Getting Cricky Challenge" http://kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/01/getting-cricky-with-memory-miser.html. Her challenge required a bird on it which my cute little penguin qualifies for so..... :-) Thanks for the tip Linda!
And last but not least, I also decided to enter this into the challenge at Made by Momo http://madebymomo.blogspot.com/ because of the winter theme. I think the snowflake border fits that theme pretty well. I really like these blogs and their challenges. I'm fairly new to this whole challenge thing and have only recently enter a couple, but I've found it's fun, gives me a new direction to focus on my pages and has me searching for cuts I may not have used otherwise....I usually scrapbook around my pages, but it's been fun to take their challenge and make it work for my books and photos....a new approach for me and I'm enjoying it! So thanks ladies for hosting these challenges. It's fun to look at my scrapbooking another way. I appreciate the time and effort it takes to do these. Thank you!
