How fun is this? Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine has put out a challenge to all us scrapbookers (click here for details). It is a new monthly challenge and this is the sketch that we are to use for September:
And here is my layout using this sketch:
I so enjoyed doing this layout. The photos were taken at my girlfriend's stagette. It was nice to have a picture with all of us girls - it just doesn't happen that often these days!
The product I used was primarily by Authentique. The papers and cardstock accents are from their Splendid line and I think they are simply splendid! I love the plaid paper - the colour, the texture - it is all great! This fabulous ribbon accent is from Prima and was a lot of fun to incorporate. The rhinestones come attached so it is super easy to use!
I really liked this challenge, but unfortunately I forgot to use something Canadian so this layout will not be eligible to be considered for publication. So... I guess I will have try to do another before the month is up!
