A Challenge

I took on my very first digital scrapbooking challenge! As I have mentioned before there are awesome designers on line that offer tons of great freebies. Many of them encourage scrapbookers to use their products to create a layout and then enter a challenge. I am so new at this digital thing that I have never taken the opportunity and accepted a challenge. At Three Paper Peonies the colors and designs are always gorgeous and after taking a peak at the newest papers I just had to give it a shot. It was so much fun! I usually start with a template and go from there but this time I relied on the beautiful papers to guide me. I started from scratch and created it all on my own. We were encouraged to go with the theme of focus by designing a page that shows evidence of something we have been focusing on in our life lately. As I have mentioned before, with taking a parenting course I have really been focused on my children and what kind of mom I am each and every day. This really was fun but I am also nervous knowing that someone else will be looking at my page and seeing what I have done with their materials.

Love the page, Amy. It turned out great. It's hard to just start with a blank canvas. Challenges have helped me to jump start the creative process a little. Thanks for a new link to some beautiful freebies. I've never seen that one before.

That is beautiful Amy. Maybe next family reunion you can auction off ten personalized scrapbook pages or something like that. Boy would THAT ever start a bidding war!

It looks so good! Great job! (I'm sure if I digiscrapped I'd appreciate it more, but even so I think it looks beautiful!)

I think you could frame those. With just a simple black frame and a white mat. It would be really pretty. :)

i HEART this pic of miss syd! the page is lovely as well, and i'm very impressed with the direction of your "focus"...i get what you mean about your focus being more on your kids...i haven't even been to that class you're taking, but i've been feeling a MAJOR push to pay better attention...such a special way to illustrate/document this viewpoint as "focusing on you"...you are THE best! =) i really need to come hang with you and learn some neat tricks...its Christmas card time and i'm freaking out. wish i had your brains & talents at this!
