Blogger Challenge week 21!



This week our bloggers challenge was do make something using Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Brocade blue and Chocolate chip. I think these colors look awesome together! I couldn't wait to play this morning! I happened to receive a special surprise from Stampin' Up! yesterday so...had to use that too! This set is called Time Well Spent and will be in the new Spring/Summer catalog as a level three hostess set. Isn't SU awesome?! I adore this set!


The project I made is a little mini scrapbook/journal that may end up with my daughter...we shall see....The 'cover' is made from chocolate chip cardstock. I put a piece of Whisper White on there and stamped some flowers with my Chocolate Chip pad. The big flower in the upper left along with the two larger flowers in the bottom corners and the butterfly are all cut out and adhered with dimensionals. I know, it took me all morning! I tried to stick with the colors in the challenge and I really like how they turned out. I added a strip of brocade blue along the bottom to add some fun and to make up for my bad measuring and used the chocolate chip marker to make a dotted line on there.


As you may know, I am on a never ended crusade to use up all these scraps I have been keeping for way too long. Hence, the inside of this little book is a bit unique. I went through my white folder and got a bunch of different sized papers and bound them together with my Bind It All. I stamped some random borders with chocolate chip on the pages and left lots of room for pictures, thoughts, or whatever this little book ends up being for. I used my snail to adhere the last page of my little 'book' to the cover. Easy peasy!! When I was done, I decided the butterfly really needed a bit of sparkle so I went back and added some with my stickles. I hope you like it! Be sure to check out the other bloggers in this challenge. They do great stuff!
