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.


  1. Great one! Keep up the good work. Challenges are fun.

  2. Good job on the embellies. I don't know about you but I love playing along with the challenges because I have to try new things and escape from my comfort zone. I like that you overlapped photos too!
