While it has been some time since I last posted, life has been anything but dull. I have had a houseful of 4 adults in addition to myself and my husband, and an extra 4 kids on top of my own two. That makes a total of 12 people living under my three bedroom duplex roof! The new year has definitely made an unforgettable entrance. I know this post is going up a day early, but both of my kids came down with the flu today so I doubt I'll be online tomorrow.
Despite all the chaos I have still managed to prepare for this week's challenge. I was exploring the Creating Keepsakes website and found the coolest tool! Use this link to go to their site and try it out! . The challenge for this week is to use their tool and create a page or two using your own customized challenge (sketch included!).
My random challenge for the layout posted included criteria such as using stamping, brads and the title block being sideways. Like always, I did modify the sketch to suit my photos but the end result was clearly inspired by the original concept.
This challenge was a really great way to inspire me to resume scrapping after the holidays and I managed to get just a little bit less behind in my catching up than I was before.
Meanwhile I have officially booked my first wedding of the year and am very excited to be working on creating invitations for some very lovely couples. Watch for updates on those weddings and be sure to post links to your work. I look forward to seeing what you create!
Happy New Year
