my stamping friends!!! I hope that you all started your New Year out well! You might be surprised that I am posting on Tuesday, but I have some very special reason to do so. As you might have read on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog there is now a Scrapbook Team!!! Yep, Kelley, the wonderful owner of ODBD is reaching out to all of the scrappers out there and the people that would like to be scrappers, like ME!!! ;D. Kelley, chose Patter Cross and Chrissy Dickinson to be on this team, so they left the Shining the Light Challenge Team and now are part of the "Let your Light Shine" Scrapbook Team. I am still part of the Shining the Light Challenge Team, but when I saw the Scrapbook Teams first sketch, I just wanted to try it out, so today my friends, you will see yours truly very FIRST real scrapbook page. I have only made one page before, but it did not include a picture, it was just more of a experiment if you will ;DD. In other words, it was bad!!!
So, after I read the requirements I just went for it and I must say, it was really FUN!! Here are some more details for this new challenge
"Each challenge will run for the entire month, and we will display new pages from Patter and Chrissy, and/or the Breadsticks every Tuesday!!! How is that for inspiration? We will also try to add tips along the way. Okay, so are you ready for your first challenge? We have decided on a sketch challenge to help ease you into your first page.
Here is the sketch
and here is what I came up with
Recipe: DCWV Mariposa Designer Pad and card stock pad, PTI Vintage Cream
