The Good Stuff

So the girls from the BASB were playing around with some scrap challenge ideas this past weekend and came up with a pretty good list. All in fun, to inspire each other. The LO below I created combing two of the challenges together. The first one was to do a LO using a picture without a person in it. The second challenge was a menu challenge. I had never participated in a menu challenge. It was a very cool idea. The concept was a four course meal. You pick one item off each of the four lists and those items are then matched up with the four items you use to create your LO. My list went like this:

1.) Beverage (starting point/base of your page)
My Choice-Beer/Big Girl Drink-A shaped paper/Diecut paper

2.) Appetizer-(# of photos)
My Choice-Spinach Dip & Chips-3 pics

3.) Entree (technique)
My Choice-Steak & Mashed potatoes-Stamping

4.) Dessert (Embellishment)
My Choice-Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie-Ribbon

So here is my combo LO. I used a Noteworthy diecut paper. I have three photos. I stamped the title. I used ribbon as the bow on the chipboard flower and under the striped paper strip at the bottom of the page. Of course, the 'no person' photos are of my favorite coffee Dunkin Donuts. Yummo!

Okay, So I do not buy as many magazines as I used to, but every so offten, I leaf through an old one and get inspired, all over again. I love this LO by Vicki Boutin from a Scrapbooks, etc mag from last year and I based my LO above on it. I did add alot of extra goodies on mine, like the Prima felt border & swirly bling and the crocheted flower & the chipboard flower. I like lots of stuff. LOL!

I have the day off today. A day to myself. WOO HOO. I think I will catch up on some reading and maybe scrap some more.

What a concept. I know!

Happy Friday!!
