Warning - No Punch Art this post.
I want to get back to my scrapbooking ways because
1) I think telling my "stories" is important
2) I have a gazillion photos in boxes and on the computer
3) I enjoy it
I joined an online group that has monthly challenges and this was for the Recipe Challenge for January. BRRRR - which meant it had to have
B - Blue
R - Rounded corners
R - Rhinestones
R - Rub-ons
R - Rick Rack
And it had to have lots of white space (Empty area, not necessarily white)
I am so not a rhinestone girl. And I had no rick rack in the colors I wanted to use - so I made some from paper and the scallop border PUNCH (of course). My rub-ons match the One of a Kind stamp set but they are retired (Urban West). Buttons and Rhinestones from my stash.
I love this photo of college girl but it has no specific story associated with it so I thought it would be good for a layout without journaling.
And after using the rhinestones I decided I like them and will use them more in the future - and that is the purpose of challenges - to stretch yourself and grow a little in your craft.
Check out this Challenge Group if you are a scrapbooker and interested in playing along.
