Oh I Love A Challenge :)

The very gorgeous Cheryl Manz (now Cheryl Ametewee) and Tara Pakosta had posted about some challenges they had given each other and Cheryl asked if anyone else wanted to join the fun, to which I said YES PLEASE!!!
It made me smile to see her email over the weekend and I have played with the first two of the five challenges

I started with what I thought to be the hardest
1. scraplift a page that you did over a year ago

I don’t like scraplifting so wanted to get that one done first ;)
I went through my folder from November last year and thought I’d lift this page of Dave

and I made this page


Lifted the title


some of the same pattern paper, the glimmer mist and photo corners


and ummed and ahhed about sharing the journaling on here, but want to challenge others to scrap these ‘moments’ because I have no clue when this stage started for me and know that this little someone will be glad of it in years to come


Challenge 2. use only black, white, and one accent color on layout.




The Love Scrappin’ Kits should be up tomorrow but will let you know when I hear from the very busy Suzie :)

Pin It Now!
