Guest Challenger - Critter Challenge Blog - Challenge #28



I was honoured that Melanie, the fabulous owner of the Critters Sketch Challenge Blog asked me to be a guest challenger. So.. here is what I came up with...

Challenge #28
Please use the colour red and striped patterned paper somewhere on your creation. I'd love to see something summer related. If you create a scrapbook page it can be of a trip from this summer or summer's past or an activity that is generally summer related (swimming, camping, etc.) If you create a card or another project it could contain suns, bright colors, etc. The sky is the limit but remember colour red, stripped patterned paper, and summery.

Here is what I came up with.. I'm (still) working on our trip from last summer. We spent 10 days in California and loved every minute of it. This layout was from our trip to Legoland, which wasn't the best experience as our boys were really too old to enjoy it, but we loved looking at the amazing structures that were made out of Lego.


Firefighting is a big thing on my husband's side of the family, his dad was a fire fighter, and our brother in law is as well. So this layout is in honour of them.

I don't often find an opportunity to use the adorable paper that is out there for boys. I had been drooling over this paper, but really couldn't find a use for it for my 12 and 13 year old boys. However, while at a Crop Night at my LSS, I was working on my Legoland pictures, saw this and knew I had to use it for these photos.
