    March House Challenge

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi everyone, it's the Red Ribbons turn to set this month's challenge, & it's a sketch.

    I love doing double layouts as I find it hard to limit myself to just a couple of photos; And Ruth wanted to challenge herself to use a double layout as she usually does single.

    If you'd rather do a single layout then either side of this sketch works nicely that way.

    Have fun with it

    Welcome to my solo challenge for the week.. this week I chose to have an International theme.. so for 10 points choose one of these song titles as your inspiration for your layout:

    I'm turning Japanese
    J'taime (I love you)
    Rule Britannia

    You don't have to use the theme for the actual title.. just use it as your inspiration.

    Next, for a further 10 points.. (Because I rarely remember to use any of the mountain I own!) use some stickers

    and finally, for a further 10 points, use a photo of a loved one.. furry or human!


    To recap-
    10 points for the song title theme
    10 points- use some stickers
    10 points- use a photo of a loved one- either furry or human

    The KISS principle is one I come back too time and time again so keeping it simple here’s what I came up with.
    Theme your LO with a photo(s) of Friends.
    Could be your BFF or a friend(s) who’s new; old; young; family; furry - whatever kind of friend you’ve got.

    Let’s just celebrate friendship.
    Use any or all of the colours in the swatch from Design Seeds.
    Use a frame (big or small) anywhere on your page.

    10 points for each of the elements used.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This challenge was inspired by one I saw on Scrapbook Challenge, I just altered their alphabet to make it my own.
    All you need to do is choose a word to inspire you. It could be a name, a number, a place. Then use the alphabet to decide what will go on your page. Try to choose your word before looking through the alphabet, that will make the challenge push you out of your comfort zone! The word needs to be at least 6 letters, 5 points per letter up to a maximum of 30.

    Your word does not have to have anything to do with the theme of the layout, it simply steers you to choose items from your stash. And if the letters are ambiguous (eg P for primary) that's deliberate to allow for even more choice.

    A: acrylic stamps
    B: buttons
    C: chevrons
    D: die cutting
    E: enamel dots/shapes
    F: fussy cutting
    G: grunge
    H: hand writing
    I: ink splats
    J: journalling
    K: kraft
    L: love
    M: more than one photo
    N: new stash
    O: overlay; acetate or vellum
    P: primary
    Q: quotation
    R: rule of three
    S: spots or circles
    T: tape
    U: unloved stash
    V: vintage photos
    W: wood
    X: X stitches
    Y: Yellow
    Z: 'zebra' stripes

    I hope you enjoy the challenge!

    Welcome to my challenge ~ I hope you like it!

    I have a 'thing' about rainbows, maybe it's the thought of a pot of gold at the end of it? Or maybe it's the beautiful colours that array our skies? So I would like you to take inspiration from a rainbow - whether it's using the colours of the rainbow spectrum or maybe just a couple of the colours.
    I've scrapped a photo of my little niece when she was 3 months old so I would like you to incorporate 'three' which might be 3 embellishments or the number 3. And finally this little girl brings me so much happiness, especially when she smiles & giggles! So I'd like you to use an 'emotional' word in your title.

    To recap:

    10 points for RAINBOW
    10 points for 3
    10 points for emotional word

    TWelcome to my first solo challenge. I've noticed lately that I always seem to start with a piece of white, cream or black plain cardstock for my layouts and my stash of coloured card stock is not feeling the love, so for 10 points, use plain coloured card stock for the base (not white, cream or black). I love using old book pages in my work, I always manage to squeeze a wee bit in to everything I do! So for another 10 points, please make your embellishments from book pages and make them large. And for the final 10 points please start your title and/or journalling with " Happiness is......" , because I usually scrap pictures which make me happy.

    In Summary
    1. Use plain coloured card for your base (not white, cream or black)
    2. Use book pages for your embellishments and make them large.
    3. Title/journalling to start with " Happiness is..."
