Critter Challenge Blog - Challenge #9

Wow, can you believe, we are already on week #9 at the Critter Challenge Blog.

This week we were given colours to be inspired by and use in our creations. When I first saw them I thought... hmmm.. pink, purple, green... I guess I will be making a card.. because I don't have any pictures that I can use for my boys' albums. And, because I rarely use those colours.. I didn't have any in my stash... great excuse to go to the LSS.... which had just changed owners and locations... so I was looking forward to checking out the new location. I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled across this Crate Paper line. I pulled up the colours on my phone and thought... perfect! So I picked up just one sheet... after all I was just making a card.. I didn't need anymore than one sheet of each. The more I thought about it... the more I thought.. I can't make a card.. I need to stick with the scrapbook pages... so... I totally went outside my comfort zone, and found a picture of me.. that I didn't mind (I hate most pictures of me... I'm so NOT photogenic)... and then headed back to the LSS to grab one of the last pieces of paper.. I have to make the same pages for my boys!



I absolutely love the page... and even wowed my hubby and kids. I even made my own matching flowers using a circle punch, scrunching up the paper, and inking the edges.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

Supplies:
Crate Paper - Bliss Collection - Glee, Spirited, and Mod (Love this line... there were a couple other sheets that I didn't choose - but I did use the backs of them for the solid pink journal box and green mat around the picture).
Bazzil - for the base - forget the name - sorry!
Versa - Pinecone Ink - everything has been inked.... I've said it before.. this is the best colour for distressing - it goes with EVERYTHING
Gem Brads - from my stash... probably dollar store.

So, come join us and you could win a fabulous surprise from My Scrapbooking Supplies.
