Today was the last day to post a project for the NSD challenges on CropChocolate . . . they were to be posted by 8am MST. Luckily, I wasn't able to sleep last night and was able to complete two (2) more layouts. So all-in-all I did two (2) cards and (2) layouts . . . and was able to post them to 6 of the 8 challenges.
For this next layout, I posted in two (2) of the challenges - Challenge #3 and #8.
For NSD Challenge #3 "Buttons & Bows", our challenge was to "Create a project using at least one button AND at least one bow. As far as the rules: for the bow(s)…you can use ribbon, twine, paper, a stamped image or even a hand drawn bow. And since we are so easy ;) same goes for the button(s)… you can use an actual button, a stamped image, chipboard piece, paper or hand drawn image."
And for NSD Challenge #8 "The Scrap and New Sketch", our challenge was to "Use Karen's sketch to create something AMAZING! Only catch?? Aside from using the sketch, you must use something new, and you must use something from your scrap pile." Here's the sketch we were to use for this challenge:
Here's how I interpreted both of these challenges:
CCproducts: Paradise Beach paper collection and CS by EP;
American Crafts pen;
Walnut Stain distress ink;
and Snake Tape
NonCC: Liquid Pearls in turquoise; Raidiant Rain Shimmering
Mist in Bashful Blue; misc. washi tape; and rose twine by AC
Once again, I couldn't decide what photos to use (I have tons of FL vacation photos), so I posted it "as is" and put it in my pile of layouts needing photos. Yes, I do have a pile of layouts I have done but haven't found THE photo for them. There are just times when a layout comes to me without any particular photo in mind. But then there are times, I can't do a layout unless I have a photo to coordinate with. I tell my dh that it's to keep HIM on his toes. lol I know, doesn't make sense. But that's between us. :)
Till the next time I'm up in the night. Kathy
