Morning Peas!
Sorry for the lack of chatting yesterday, we spent FOUR HOURS jumping with various friends on the trampoline, then I HAD to clean our nasty floors which entails, sweeping, steaming and vacuuming! I was wiped out! LOL!

Today the challenge is one that I "warned" you about before. I hinted that you would need black and white photos and today is the day you will use them if you have them. If not no worries there are other ways to interpret the challenge.

Today you may ONLY use black and white. Nothing else, nothing more. The ONLY exception is if you are doing a layout your pictures if you can't/don't want to print them in black and white.

I can't wait to see what you do with this one. I think these creations can be striking!

Chatter: What would you say you "style" is in one word? Distressed? Vintage? Simple? Linear? Bright? Fun? Eclectic? Romantic? Modern? Something else?

Don't forget to upload, link and praise.

For me my style varies but mostly stays in the clean/simple/bright/linear but I do try other styles if it fits the picture or the person I am creating for.

I'm still trying to figure out what my style is. I do like straight lines and bright colors. It depends a lot on the photo and there's where I usually begin. Most times I go for cute. If it's a special photo that's dreamy, I go for that. The only LOs I have done where I didn't start with the photo have been the vintage ones with all the flowers. I like Kim Watson's comment I read long ago in CK that she tries not to have a particular style.

By the way, of course, I couldn't have Cheerios on a layout in an album so I finally found a close up of a sandy beach and punched out some circles and then punched out the centers. The Cheerios were better!

Oh boy, just black and white... this is going to be challenging. haha . imagine that a challenge being difficult lol.

Anyhow my style is all about MOOD. My sb style is very much like my fashion style, home style, make up style, I like to build off a classic foundation but really open to any direction to illustrate the mood. So super soft and pretty and light to crazy layers of grungey and dark to clean and simplistic. I love taking inspiration from others and having a big mix.

Ive had 7, 10 and 11 up for a bit but am just getting around to linking them here.




day 10

day 7

day 11

I've gotten a bit behind I'm afraid. Not to fear, I'm planning on finishing up Day 5 (a PL spread) and Day 6 (only 1 color and 1 neutral) tonight. Hopefully I'll have some stuff to post tomorrow! The one color/ one neutral challenge is currently kicking my butt, in a good way. I'm afraid that I'm doing a bit of cheating I love that all of this challenges!

Chatter: That's a tough one. I would say that my goal is for my style to look like Shimelle's. I fall far short (lol) but my goal is to do lots of patterned paper layers and 3 clusters of embellishment.

Alright. I did the the B&W challenge. and i only cheated with cream for one of word's letters. it was just the perfect font so I figured cream is close enough to white. This page was very much out of my norm to scrap. I tend to scrap big happy events and usually have minimal journaling or very factual journaling. I am a pretty private person with my thoughts and since I do my own personal scrapbooks for me and not to a child I don't really have anyone to address them to. Or the Scrapbooks I do for my friends I don't really want the story told from just MY perspective; these were their events. Nevertheless, excuse my tangent, I did a much more emotional, Heavily Journaled page reflecting on the one year anniversary of my 25 year old cousins death.

DAY 13





i also uploaded my day 12 page
day 12

off to catch up on praising, have a good night everyone!

I didn't get on the internet at all yesterday so I didn't see this challenge. But I think I kind of love it! And I think I have some black and white photos that I can get a hold of to use too. I'll have to raid the pictures box!!

I have a hard time describing my style in one word. But I would say that it's probably simple. Most of my pages tend to be very simple just because of time and having 4 kids to scrap pages for. I like to mix it up every now and then and do something more complex but I just don't have time to do it very often!

Here is day #13 for me. I really didn't think I would do this one but ended up with some time this evening & gave it a shot. The only B&W photo I could find just didn't work for me, so geese it is. Mother Goose

My style varies alot. I use alot of sketches, which leads to variation but if going from scratch have picked up alot from GG and lean towards alot of layering & embellishment clusters.

The challenges have been great. Thanks for posting them Crystal! (and I am only one day behind....woohoo!)
