oh yes! i joined a beauty pageant...
stop! it's not what you are probably thinking! i have image issues to actually be joining a real pageant! lol!
it's a scrapbook beauty pageant over at scrap-tastic! scrap-tastic hosted a 6-week challenge with different challenge themes every week. it was a chance for me to force myself to finish a layout every week. and knowing me, i'll be too lazy or tired to finish anything without the much needed push (and motivation).
it was a bit different being on the other side of a challenge like this. (reminds me a lot of the scrappin' moms idol! lol!)
here's the first layout i created for the challenges...
week #1 - "love fulfilled"
it was a color combination challenge. there were 3 main colors and we are only allowed to use those colors and others from this color palette only.
the prima paper i used was a perfect match for the palette and i just needed to add on embellishments to match the other color requirements. this layout is currently one of my favorites i've created this year.
materials used: cardstock - bazzill; patterned paper, flowers, alphas, crystals - prima; transparency - hambly; brads - making memories; stamps - technique tuesday; ribbon lace
