Continued from previous post...
Last week Design on Cloud 9 had a scrap challenge. The challenge was to make a project using their "freebie" file of the week. Winner was chosen at random for a $10 gift certificate to their website. I took on the challenge and played along. And, of course, I didn't win. Well, since I'm on the design team I think it automatically disqualifies me. It was fun anyway!
Here is the freebie file that was used:
It's called Scrapbook Layout #6. (This file was only free during the week of the challenge)
And here is my take on the challenge:
I decided to change it up a bit. I used the same elements in the layout but re-purposed them. I like being able to take things and make it my own. And, who said we were limited to just that one file?! I used DC9's Nuts About You file(bow not included with file). Threw in a splash of pink to tone the oranges and brown... I didn't want a traditional fall layout and the pink was a great choice! Lastly, because it was a simple layout I decided to emboss throughout to add some interest.
All the squirrels in this set looked like boys so I added a bow from another set to the top of her head... and ta-dah, instant girl. then added, of course, embossing. Love how something so small made her very feminine!
Lovin' the pink!
I love the houndstooth!
I even embossed the photo corners.
Tags easily come out of the pocket for journaling.
Hope you all liked my take on last weeks challenge. And, don't forget, Design on Cloud 9 started there weekly challenges back up.
