I made this page to enter into two challenges. First the Frosted Designs blog hop which requires the use of Polka Dots.
I’d also like to enter this in the Scrap Our Stash Challenge #4 “All about our guys”. This required the use of 5+ brads, which can be seen in the flower centres and also as bullet points for the journalling. Scrap our stash is a perfect challenge for me since I only work from stash – living in a country without scrapbooking stores is great for getting you to use what you have.
Materials used are October Afternoon Campfire and Kaisercraft rubons. The rest is mystery paper, and scraps which my very generous SIL ran through her diecutting machine and sent to me as part of a crafting care package.
Here’s a close-up of the flowers.
More polka dots and brads.
I’m finding that joining challenges is helping me produce more interesting pages as I’m ‘forced’ to get out of my usual habits and try some new things, or things that I’ve forgotten about. Please visit Frosted Designs and Scrap Our Stash to see how others have interpreted their challenges.
