123 Challenge Blog Scrapping Challenge

My my my...I'm a slacker, aren't I?!? It's been ages since I last blogged...sorry about that.

Anyway, the point of this particular post is to display my entry for the 123 Challenge Blog's September challenge.

Something that I used to do before my second daughter was born was to enter a lot of scrapping challenges, and I was also on a lot of scrapbooking Design Teams. It's been almost 7 years since I did either, and I thought it was high time I started doing it again. I am so far behind with scrapping my girls albums, and challenges are an awesome way of garnering inspiration!

So this month the challenge is to use all the following on a layout:

Now, none of these things are particular favourites of mine. I love coloured pencils, but usually not on a layout, so this particular challenge was, well, challenging to say the least. Anyway, here's my entry:

(Materials used: Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey Soliel papers and alpha stickers, Kaisercraft Flowers, gems and wood veneers, random dollar store sparkly washitape, AC thickers, Heidi Swapp chipoboard alphas (I think!), prismacolor pencils, versamark ink for edges, Marvy writing pen, Heidi Swapp Project Life journaling card).

And there you have it folks...my first foray back into the scrapping challenge world :)

Right, now I'm off to scrap again...I have a lot of catching up to do.

Much Love
