I hope that all of the US folks had a great Thanksgiving. We did! Spent time with our family and ate way too much! :)
Over at Let's Scrap they have a weekly sketch-but they also have groups that have various challenges. One of the groups is called Let's Scrap Our Stash. If you join Let's Scrap you can be in this group. So a wonderful and creative lady named Cathy creates the recipes for the challenges.
Here are 2 layouts I did for challenges #22 and #23. (I did #21 earlier.) The first recipe and where you can find them in this layout are as follows:
Here is the 2nd challenge #22. I know I inverted them but that's how I have them organized in my head. LOL! This one was a bit more challenging. I needed to use flowers are buttons. I realized that I don't seem to use that much stuff on my pages. I also seem to do more themed pages and since I have a little guy...well I don't use flowers as much. But I have lots of flowers so go figure!
So reaching deep deep into the archives I found some pictures of my sister and I at the Botanical Garden in Atlanta. This was fun to scrap, and I forgot how much fun flowers are! :)
Here's the recipe for this layout:
So today's tidbit is to use a recipe. You can make one up and come up with random numbers and items, or join a challenge. I like these challenges because I realized what I wasn't adding to my pages. On the 2nd layout I put a chipboard piece (the yellow swirl) which I wouldn't have done before. Hopefully, I will look at my supplies a little differently.
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends-use up those brads-because it's always fun to go buy some more! ;)
