ELIMINATION ROUND: (August 1-8, 2007)
THEME – SCRAPLIFT YOUR (INTERNATIONAL) IDOLThe toughest part of this challenge was deciding who my idol was. When I browse through online galleries, books and magazines, I would often be drawn to particular layouts for various reasons, never minding who the designer is. This challenge forced me to thing if I was following in anyone's artistic footsteps. I don't think I am. Not yet, at least.
ROUND 1: (August 10 - 16, 2007)
THEME - STUCK ON CARDSTOCK
THEME - WHAT'S YOUR COLOR?
ROUND 3 (August 24-30, 2007)
THEME - ALTER IT!This was my toughest ever that had even my DH and KiDS puzzled. Not only did we have to alter a household item, we had to repurpose it. My DH asked me several times, "what does that have to do with scrapbooking?" What, indeed. I altered an egg carton box and a dozen eggshells into a beads and ribbons holder. I think, looking back, trying out transferring photos on packaging tape and having buttercake for dessert were the most fun parts.
ROUND 4 - (August 31 - September 6, 2007)
THEME - What's in a Photo
ROUND 5- (September 7- 13, 2007)
THEME - No Photos Allowed
ROUND 6- (September 14- 20, 2007)
THEME – Words from the Heart
FINAL ROUND - (October 6, 2007)THEME – What Makes Me Happy
I never hoped it would come to this. Scrapping on the spot with eleven very talented scrappers. Oh, the pressure. I have written about this before but this is the first time I am posting the layout. I didn't plan this layout beforehand even if we were given clues as to what to expect and there lay my downfall. Even my journaling was written on the spot. And the materials came as a complete surprise to us. That I finished within the time allotted made me breathe a huge sign of relief. As I told the Scrappin Moms when they asked me "What makes me happy?" during the interview, I am soooo happy this is finally over. :-)
