Just a few scrapping things on the workdesk this week !
When I was visiting your desks over the past couple of weeks I saw that girls were taking part in a "CSI challenge"- it stands for Colour Stories Inspirations and is a scrapbook challenge website.
When I investigated, I found they have a weekly challenge based around just that - they give you a palette of colours, a theme and prompts for embellishments & journalling. And they offer freebie papers & downloads for you to use.
This week there was even a layout sketch to follow.
It looked fun and just what I needed to get back into a scrapbooking frame of mind !
So on my desk this week is my completed layout for CSI Challenge 54 ... the theme was all about hot drinks ! And I loved the colour combinations they suggested !
So I rooted around in my stash & found papers, ribbons & these little polka dot hearts that all fitted in with the colour scheme and used a couple of their papers too.
Having entered this for the challenge I then set about printing out all my photos from Christmas & New Year ..
Rather perversely I decided to start scrapping with New Year rather than Christmas - and I got on with a layout for our New Years Eve with our friends.
I had bought this clock page ages ago - and as I am on a stash busting mission for 2013 I am determined not to just keep looking at my lovely stash and stroking it (tell me it's not just me who does that !!) but to actually use it up !
And rather than throw away the place name cards I made for New Years Eve - I thought I would pop them onto the page !
And tonight I have my bag all packed & ready for Scrapclub tomorrow night !
Loaded up with my Christmas pictures and the project box with all the stash leftover from my JYC journal last month - using this up is another stash busting plan of mine !!
I'll keep you posted how it goes !
Have a great crafty week & looking forward to seeing what you are all up to this week !
