Challenge #1 was to alter a composition notebook. Now that I am on a design team, I wanted mine to be a place where I could store pictures and details of all my layouts and projects I have completed this year. I will also keep data on all the page contests I enter for the year in my book. To date I have about six entries in my book and it will grow alot since I forsee a busy year.
Challenge #2 was to use a product called Kaiser droplets. Kaiser droplets were the January giveaway at the all day crop for bringing a friend. My layout is of my son playing soccer this season. Soccer is his all time favorite sport. The Kaiser Droplets are on the bottom left corner and are used as bullets for each phrase. I actually liked the sheer effect the droplets have so I was able to put one over the top of of a photo and you can still see the detail thru the droplet.
Challenge #3 use items from the emelishment box. The embelishment box this month contained 3 themes.
- Metal items
- Blue, white embelishments and snowflake items to represent winter
- Red and green embelishments for Christmas.
These embelishments are displayed as complimentary items to use at the crops and change each month. My layouts are below:
"Freezin for a Reason" I used snowflakes, ribbon and brads from the box. These pictures are from from the snow in Susanville, CA when my daughter was 3. The pictures are of us and my friend Carrie's family having a little winter fun."Christmas" - I used metal key chain links, flat jewely charms and a flat jack as my star on top the tree. This layout is a photo of my son and our 4 legged children Athena and Luna Christmas morning 2009.
