I woke up this morning, knowing I had the day off to work on challenges from NSD, with this feeling of being disappointed. And I kinda am. I had planned out this weekend for months....arranged to have Monday and Tuesday off, registered for 2 online crops with plans to participate in lots of blog activities as well. For the entire weekend....spanning from 4pm on Friday when I got home from work, till now I completed THREE layouts. I can do that in an evening. Why THIS weekend? I realize I had a lot of other things going on that came up AFTER I had made my grand plans, but THREE layouts? My scrap space is a complete disaster...so much so to the point that I don't even know where to start or even if I want to! I am moving in 2 months, may as well leave the mess and deal with it when I am packing! I don't know...I am just so disappointed. MY big weekend was nothing but a big BUST! Sorry for whining....I think I just need some more coffee! LOL!
I tried to finish this page last night but it just refused to come together for me. So I went to bed and this morning, finished it in 15 minutes. All I had done was the basic layout which is using one of Debbie's sketches for the Tuesday Sketch Challenge at Frosted Designs. The rest came together rather fast this morning which is what I am used to! I did this layou for the 10-10-10 Challenge in the BPS Crop. You had to have 10 words, 10 products and 10 techniques on one page. The words and products were no problem, but 10 techniques got tricky on this page. Some pages I use WAY more than 10 but this was a cleaner page. My techniques were: Sanding (the letters in GOOF), distressing, inking (edges), stapling (yep, she said that's a technique!), die cutting (circle), punching (strip on right), clustering, layering and misting (butterfly) and adding dimension with pop dots (google eyes). The words and products you can clearly see.
At Frosted Designs, Debbie has a challenge to use Butterflies. I added a big Kaisercraft butterfly with a little mist on it to add a bit of whimsy to this layout.
And for the final challenge out of this layout, at A Cherry On Top Challenge #5 is to have your title in ALL CAPS.
