I really enjoyed the playing along, taking the classes and the challenges over at the Cocoa Daisy crop. Sean and the boys let me spend alot of time in my loft the last 2 weekends and here is all the challenges that I participated in....
Challenge #2 was a technique challenge with Guest Designer Danielle Flanders, Chevrons are still a current trend in scrapbooking - this was a challenge to use them on a layout, Danielle uses a square punch and then cuts the square in half to make her chevrons!
I used my photo corner punch and a sketch that I found on Pinterest!
Challenge #3 was a Music Inspired Challenge - Choose an album cover for inspiration, use the artwork, title or lyrics on your LO, you must also use a title from a song as a title for your LO.
I selected Shania Twain's UP album cover... because it was white, simple & clean - and because our wedding video was to "Forever and for Always"... but if you read the journalling it was about the song that I remember being played while those photos were taken by the wedding photographer
Challenge #5 - A Sketch Challenge - I love using sketches when I scrapbook... I knew exactly what photo I was using when I saw this sketch!
The circle rings represent the holes in the ice (for ice fishing) I used embossing powder to make the rings with a versamark pen, then used Mica (from the CD store) that I bought quite sometime ago and had never tried... but Christine has some in there and it will come in handy for Christmas and Winter embellishments The background is a really old piece of My minds eye paper that worked perfectly because it looks like fishing net!
Challenge #11 - ATC Cards - I have never made these but have always loved seeing these little pieces of art made by other scrapbookers
I used my Websters Pages stash for this one! Made one for my friend Danine and one for Sean to give Lena at the end of their little holiday to Greece.
Challenge #12 was a color palette challenge, Christine selected 5 Palettes to choose from...
Challenge #13 was a technique challenge - you needed to grab a brayer some ink and make a circle star burst.... I chose some photos from a holiday that I have been wanting to get on paper for quite some time!
I was also inspired by the show's table menu!
Challenge #14 was to make a mess on your page!
Challenge #15 Round and Round challenge - for this challenge we were supposed to use as many circles as possible!
I also used a Basic Grey Sketch and paper for this one... and a few more photos from our night at the Cirque on the NCL Epic - Fun!
Thanks for looking at all my Cocoa Daisy inspired layouts!
