Challenge Yourself!

Today I decided to challenge myself a little bit. You know how you get in a rutt and just can't think of a design. Well I have come to realize that I do not have to always be the one to think of the design but to look for a challenge, a design that is already done. So Magnolia put out this layout and asked crafters to make something using their design. I thought I would make a little flip album. I took two pieces of chipboard and cut them to size and covered with this yummy K&Co paper which is so glittery (and you know how much I love the bling!). Then I stamped my sweet Tilda on WW cardstock as well as on another one of the K&Co coordinating papers so I could paperpiece her outfit. I used the regal rose and celery papers throughout the front. The little scallop piece- yes, I did that with my slit punch- at first I put little holes in it but didn't like it b/c it didn't really pop too much so I made another and just did a little design on it to make it pop (did it work?). I am happy with it. The inside of the flip book will all have coordinating papers: the ribbon is SU celery, rose, banana and then a dashes, dots & checks. So I am going to enter her in a contest to win Magnolia a magnolia stamp (wish me luck!) cause I think it came out nice.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my Father's Day cards- you are all so nice! Talk to you later!
