First Scrapbook Challenge EVER. . .

and it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped. :-/ I did try, though, and that's the important thing. The challenge was from the Scraptastic Club blog, and sounded pretty simple:
create an embellishment cluster using at least 6 items, with no more than two of any one type counting towards your total.
I know, seems easy - but for me, it wasn't. I guess embellishment clusters just aren't my style. It's kinda like scrapping a 4x6 picture all the way on one side of a 12x12 page - I just don't get it. The layout isn't great, but definitely not horrible either. Anyway, here it is: So yeah, not too bad. The kit for this month, "Oh Snap!", is awesome. I can't believe how easy it is to pull layouts together with this kit. I thought there might be some problems (i.e. the pages, being so bright, overshadowing the pictures; so much pinks in the kit, since I have a boy, etc.), but it really is an amazing kit. The cardstock and chipboard squares are bazzill, letters are thickers, and the stickers are Heidi Swapp.
