I can't believe I'm doing another post so soon. We have been so sick in my house that I have had time to get do things around the house. If anyone is still reading blogs :)
I read this fun article in one of my scrapbook magazines and it was so much fun, I had to share. They had some challenges. this is what they were.
1- Pick the embellishments randomly. I had both kids pick out 2 different elements to use on a scrapbook page. At first I was really intimidated because they picked seemingly mismatching stuff. It really forced the creativity! Half-way through, I thought this is turning out really bad. But after I was finished, I enjoyed the first page so much, I actually did a second page this way!
2-Glue as you go. I didn't make a layout (which I normally do) I just glued each element as I went. The challenge was if you mess up just add more to fix it, you can't remove anything.
3- Finally, set a timer. I gave myself 45 min and told Eric to tell me when every 10 min has gone by. It didn't give me time to second guess!
I know many of you aren't scrappers but it was so much fun trying something I love in a different way, maybe it can inspire someone out there.
