By the Numbers Challenge

I thought I'd share a layout with you today that I did last week for one of the June Challenges over at Scrapbook Challenges...this one was called 'By the Number's' and our challenge was to create a layout using only two sheets of patterned paper, one of them had to have numbers on it...the other rule was to use an actual number in the title!


This photo was taken at our friend's house, Olivia was pretending to play this guitar...my kids all love to pose for the camera...one of the best things they've learnt from their mother :)


It was definitely a challenge for me to only use two different sheets of patterned paper...I took that rule literally and used the back of one of the sheets...I also was able to use some border stickers to help embellish as well as my stash of misc. flowers, buttons and punches...



Layering up different pieces from your stash can result in some very unique embellishments...remember to have fun in the end, playing with challenges can really get you creating and maybe even doing some work that you wouldn't naturally do on your own!

Thanks for stopping in today and I really hope you check out some of the new challenges this July at the SC site...they are due at the end of this month and usually come with RAK from the host of each challenge :) Have fun!!!
