Challenge 71


It never stops blowing my mind how fast a week can go by. We have been overcome by Spring cleaning urges here at our farm and with big changes like building a house and other structures, I know that the chaos and craziness has only just begun! I've barely unpacked and reassembled my studio after the crop - so exhausted!- but have so many exciting things coming up for the fall...but we'll talk about that later seeing as Spring really only started for us yesterday. What I do like about our current season is that I feel rather creatively charged and somehow can't seem to get everything made that I want to...an abundance of creativity and a shortage of time.

I have some fun classes that I'm offering over the summer so if you live in the Whitehorse area, please visit the Classes site for details on that.

So this week for challenge 71 (I can hardly believe we're there already!)I created a really fun 6x12 sketch. I love this format and the vertical orientation makes me super happy. I am a lover of the single photo scrap page and these 6x12 pages just ROCK for that! American Crafts just introduced a 6x12 vertical album too...can't wait to get that sucker and fill 'er up! It seems that having a pre-schooler at home makes him the most likely candidate for the majority of my pages just because it's opportune to grab more photos of him than anyone else...so that means that when I made this page, it was using another Sethy photo. The photo is from his birthday...Noah gave him his hand-me-down Gameboy and Sethy sat right down and knew exactly what to do. Too cute!

I know that there are lots of you who are playing along with our weekly challenges and posting your pages to the Flickr Group. I love that! It's so exciting to see how you interpret the artwork week by week. Please continue with your submissions!! If you haven't contributed yet, visit our Flickr Group, upload your page (make sure to add it to the LP Photo Pool!) and make sure to indicate which week your page is made for. The design team will vote on a favorite and the winner will be awarded with a free Couture Collection! You don't have to use the Couture Collection to be able to submit your pages, just use the amazing goodies that I KNOW you have in your stash.
