So luckily, I had a challenge idea come in from the talented and clever, Jennifer French. We're calling it...."From This Day Forward." Sounds fitting doesn't it? Well, we thought since June was the month known for Weddings, ya know!?
Although this Challenge is based off of a "Wedding Theme" you DO NOT have to create a Wedding creation per se. It can be any theme of your choosing.
There are just 3 simple rules for this Pre-Challenge. These rules were prepared with love and are as follows:
1. You are to take this sketch provided by Jennifer and base your creation from it. You may take away from it, add to it, flip it, the choice is yours. Just as long as it's obvious that you got your inspiration from it. You are allowed to make ANY paper creation of your choosing whether it be a scrapbook layout, card, altered item, etc. The choice is yours!
2. You must include an item that is "something old" (6 months or older), "something new", "something borrowed" (the sketch, which is provided), and "something blue."
3. You must share the ingredients of your sweet layout AND a short description. Here's JUST an example of how this can be done:
Cardstock Paper: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Jenni Bowlin
Embellishments: Flowers-Prima Marketing, Chipboard-Tim Holtz, Brads-Making Memories
Pen: Signo Uni-ball
Short Description-My son, Isaiah, is always the center of attention. We can go to a playground and all the parents have their eyes on him. He keeps me on my toes with all the dangerous and daring stunts he does or "tricks" as he calls them.
*When posting your layout on your blog/gallery you should include a working link to C.S.D.
Here's some Eye Candy for you....Jennifer created this scrapbook layout based on the rules for this Challenge and this is what she came up with. (Less the Ingredients and short Description).
What's in it for you if you play along? Well, of course we're not going to have you creating something for nothing. Silly you!
