Shell’s Scrap Space

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Once upon a time....

there was an awesome site I used to go to that had the BEST challenges ever. Yesterday I discovered the site had been shut down!!!! I KNOW...IT PUT ME IN A SPIN!!!

It's the 1st of the month and normally I would be sitting down reading all the challenges getting excited about my scrapping for the month ahead.

Seeing as it no longer exists I thought I would do my own challenges along the same lines as the ones I loved so much.

I know there are a couple of your gals out there (particularly you Amanda) that will also miss these challenges so please play along with me!!

Word Challenge - Use the word "Adorable" in your title.
You must also use inking, ribbon and stamping somewhere on the page

Themed Challenge - Calendar. Take inspiration from a calendar in any way you like. It can be the numbers, months a particular date etc
You must also use scallop edges and a tree/s on your page

Sketch Challenge - Use this awesome sketch from PageMaps as your inspiration.

Quote Challenge - "A picture is worth a thousand words"
You must also use strip jounaling, buttons and a star/s

Number Challenge - 1 flower, 2 photos, 3 buttons, 4 journaling spots/cards/, 5 gems/rhinestones

Colour Challenge - shades of blues and browns

Ebony and Ivory Challenge - White (Ivory) with pink and green
You must also use brads or pearls and a butterfly/s

Scrap Yourself - You must use a pic of yourself using Australia or Australia Day as the theme.

Hope you enjoy the challenges.

Once you have finished them email me with your creations. I can't wait to see them!
