Pot'Pourri the 43rd Challenge

I loved this challenge because I had to really think about how to get all the items on the page in the correct order.  I stamped on the butterfly chipboard piece (grungeboard) and used some glimmer mist and an alphabet stencil in two corners, like you see above.  It adds a nice amount of texture on the page.  I used my scallop decorative scissors to cut the edge of one of the trim pieces and used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the other trim piece.  I am happy with how it all turned out.  Now, let's see yours!

52 Week Scrapbook Challenge Wrap Up!

I really need to "wrap up" this challenge so I'm posting the last ten challenges here all at one time.  As I finish each challenge I'll post the results.  Here they are:

1. (43) Pot’pourri (use the following items on a page at least once: letter stickers, rub-ons, punches, chipboard, stencils/masks, deco scissors,  ribbon, brads and stamps).

2.  (44) Using transparencies on a layout.

3.  (45) Go mega! (think really big for everything)

4. (46) Use charms and decorative pins on a page.

5.  (47) Decoupage on a page (Decoupage - the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and so on)

6.  (48) Alter a photo, physically take a photo and scratch into it or paint on it or do whatever you think will create a fun focal point on your page.

7.  (49) Make a photo montage on a page.

8.  (50) Ric Rac and Scallops together on a page

9.  (51) Stamp on Patterned Paper (Use stamps on decorative patterned paper)

10.  (52) Combine two of the challenges and create a layout.

That will complete the "52 Week Scrapbooking Challenge".  I will show you how many albums I filled once I have completed the 52nd challenge.  Woot Woot!
