Challenge Sixteen

And finally...the last of the challenges from Shimelle's scrapbooking weekend, number sixteen.

I had lots of fun with this one, use leftovers from the other challenges on a page. As I worked on the other challenges, I tossed scraps into a box so I would have them to choose from when it was time for the last challenge. My inspiration for the page I created was this one by Mettek at Two Peas. I dug all the little bits and pieces and details, and it translated well into a challenge to use up some scraps.

Here's my final challenge page:

(Supplies: Patterned paper by Studio Calico, Crate Paper, Echo Park, October Afternoon and unknown manufacturers. Stickers by Crate Paper, Doodlebug, Little Yellow Bicycle, and Basic Grey. Journaling block by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. Letter stickers by American Crafts, Pink Paislee and October Afternoon. Number stickers by Pebbles. Gem by Kaiser. Chipboard buttons by Echo Park. Ink by Tim Holtz Distress. Mask by The Crafter's Workshop. Spray ink by Glimmer Mist. Die cut card stock, unknown manufacturer.)

I love that I was able to incorporate so many bits from previous projects, especially the die cut card stock and the same brick pattern mask I used with a different color on the page I created for challenge number three.

And that concludes my version of Shimelle's scrapbooking weekend, which lasted a week and a day! I had so much fun, so much creative energy, and I got a lot of photos scrapbooked, a lot of pages made, and a lot of supplies used. Thank you SO MUCH, Shimelle, for a wonderful collection of challenges that made me stretch my creative muscles. I just had the time of my life.


  1. What a wonderful use of scraps - that doily really sets off all the squares and flatters the photo to boot.
