Hi eveyone! It's the 7th of the month and time for a new reveal at Challenge YOUrself:
This month's theme is "Alphabet Soup:"For "Alphabet Soup," Challenge YOUrself would like you to pick one letter and use it in various ways on your layout. For example, if you chose the letter P, you can use PAINT, PEARLS, PATTERNED PAPER, etc, and a use word that begins with P in your title.
I chose the letter C and here is my take:
With her permission, I used a COURSE kit by Di Garling.
Here is a photo of her original beautiful layout:
Please view Di Garling's blog to see all of her beautiful kits!! Her kits come with all of the supplies you need to make the layout as well as printed instructions with photos and a video, too!
I also used : a CHRISTMAS theme, CHIPBOARD pieces, patterned CARDSTOCK (by AB Studios), the color CRIMSON, gold glitter with CRYSTALS, and my title: CHRISTMAS!
Here are some different views of my layout:
I would like to link up my layout to the Art Journal Journey theme this month.
When I went to their blog to check out this month's theme, I was very saddened to read that Eileen, from The Artful Crafter's Blog, who was supposed to be the host of this month's challenge, had passed away after recent surgery. The Administrators of Art Journal Journey Monthly decided to honor her by keeping her theme this month. When I read this, I knew that I had to link up my scrapbook page to her challenge, which is "Inspired by." I was inspired by Di Garling and her scrapbook kits this month. (I hope you get to check out all of her kits using the above link.) And I especially hope you get to check out Art Journal Journey Monthly, too!!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. HUGS!
