22nd January Challenge

Today Julie's challenge is 'Do you remember Sesame Street? How they'd always do "Brought to you by the letter___" at the end of the show?
I'm sort of channeling that for this month's challenge. Do a layout 'brought to you' by whichever one of the 26 that tickles your fancy. It could be the layout content, title...whatever you want, just so there's a focus on one letter.'

Here's Julie's layout:
I went with I is for Ian. :) 
I used the biggest chipboard "I" I had in my drawer...misted it, and then used some Goosebumps Shimmer Texture Spray, for a fun finish.

Loved this challenge! There was only one letter I could use, which I incorporated into the title.


I loved this challenge and have mentally bookmarked it for future reference - so many possibilities! I decided to focus on the letter "U" as a play on words.

I printed off words to do with the sea all beginning with S.

This was a fun challenge and I had a hard time narrowing down my subject. I'm definitely inspired to make a few more layouts thanks to this prompt!

We look forward to seeing all your letter inspired layouts, link them up!

Jan 8th Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy new year to you all!

Today's challenge comes from the lovely Julie Jacob...

Scrap a page using 5 or more photos!

And here are your inspirational layouts from the DT:


I found this challenge quite hard, as I don't often scrap with multiple photos - two is normally my maximum! I decided to keep them quite small, and very similar so it didn't feel too overwhelming. I also used black and white photos so they stand out against the colours in the rest of the layout.


This was a tough one for me...but a good challenge. I was shooting for 5 and ended up with 6! :)


This is a great challenge for when you have lots of photos from one day or time.

I find the easiest way to get a lot of photos on a single page layout is to print them small. Wallet sized photos are great for overview pages - like this one that will start the 'Halloween 2011' section of my scrapbook.

And our prize for January is a $30 gift certificate to The Hen's Den store! Thank you for the generous prize :)

To enter, just link up your take on either of our January challenges (the next one goes live on 22nd) in the comments section of the challenge post. Can't wait to see everyone's entries!
