You & Me ~ The Paper Variety Guest Designing

Thursday, February 16, 2012
I got a wonderful opportunity to be a guest designer over at The Paper Variety Challenge Blog. And as I mentioned before, this challenge blog is one of my fave. They have really great challenges as well as sponsors :D So....check them out!!!

Now...every month, they run 2 different challenges. And this month, I was guest designing for the second one. I was hoping for a sketch challenge..but it didn't happen.'s the challenge:

Photo Inspiration ~ Use the photo above to create any projects. {FYI: I LOVE LOVE this movie, it's so cute, romantic, FUNNY...and OMG...LOVE the set ~ Ireland is Beautiful. If you haven't watched this movie, you should...after all this year is a leap year!!}
Things that can inspire you from this photo:
  1. Color Combo ~ green/grey/white combination
  2. Engagement/Wedding Theme
  3. Project featuring a couple
  4. Include a froggie {Leap}
  5. Use a movie theme
  6. Irish Theme {the movie is set in Ireland}

At the beginning...I really struggled with this. This was {literally} totally a challenge for myself. I'm so comfortable using sketches...and when I'm given other than that..I'm lost {LOL}.
After 2 days gathering papers and embellishments and looking for the right's what I came up,

I used the color combo and 'the couple' ideas from the photo. And...I didn't use any sketches for this page. I just went with the flow...and I really LOVE the way it came out.

Anyway...I had a FUN and great time doing this and I hope you give this challenge a try too and who knows you could win a great prize from the sponsor, Apron Strings Designs.

Well...that's all for today.
Happy Scrapping to you all!!!!
