(placecard using up scraps)
(Mini cards using the leftovers - you've gotta love that)
Over the last 6 weeks I've joined in the fun over at Scrapz Biz They have been having a great little challenge where we had to be inspired by a certain ad on TV - some going back to when I was growing up. We had certain criteria to follow and we had to create a layout for each of the 6 weeks. I had lots of fun as I haven't been doing a lot of creating of late.
Here are my layouts
Week 1 I still call Australia home
For this layout I have used all bits and pieces – old slides, Australian flag toothpicks turned into a banner, coloured matchsticks and other bits and pieces
Week 2 We're Happy Little Vegemites
For this layout I have used all things Vegemite – I ripped a label off a Vegemite jar and stuck that down I even used the yellow ring from the top of the jar.
Week 3 Not Happy Jan
For this layout we needed to use a page from a book – so I used an old children’s nursery rhyme book that I picked up at an op-shop – it was falling apart anyway so I didn’t feel bad about wrecking it.
Week 4 Life Be In It
For this layout we needed to create something inspired by the Life Be In It ad so I went with some great photos of Josh on his unicycle and one of my new Li’l Daisies
Week 5 Dove
For this layout we needed to be inspired by the Dove ad – I went with the theme that beauty is all around us. I did some serious recycling for this layout – I re-used the inside of window envelopes – I even stuck my photo behind the window face…LOL, old playing card, clothes labels, old stamps, bread tags etc.
Week 6 Tim Tam Genie Ad
And for the last ad we had to think of 3 wishes – I explained that my 3 wishes have already come true – first to find Sean and have the fairytale wedding, second to have 3 beautiful healthy children and then to buy our very first home – our family home where we are all living happily – happily ever after. We are truly blessed
So there you have it – this was a very challenging and enjoyable challenge – certainly made me step out of my comfort zone.
Thanks for looking.
