One of the things I enjoy most is a good challenge so I feel very honoured to be guest designer on HMITM this week. I’m sure you will agree that we all have way too much “stuff” in our stashes and a HMITM challenge is the perfect opportunity to use some of them up – I dug deep into my own stash when putting together my layout and managed to use items I'm sure I have had in there for years.
Elizabeth: This was such a fun challenge! Thanks Jane! Once I had a title worked out and an idea for the layout, it came together quite easily.
Debbi T: I agree with everyone else--what a fun idea for a challenge, Jane! I chose an unconventional shape--a tag. That's a shape, right? I used one of my Noel Mignon kits to make this page, pluse a few odds and ends from my stash. I was glad to use up some of my plain white tags since I have a gazillion of those! I was a little pressed for time last week, so I combined this challenge with the current palette over at Color Combos Galore. My hidden journaling reads:
An afternoon junque-ing with Dawn at a cool place called Chartreuse, which is only open every third weekend. We bought a beautiful shabby chic cabinet and just had a ball browsing all the nifty vintage stuff. Leave it to Farzad to find the booby door. Yes, a door plastered with pictures of naked ladies.
Amanda: What a great challenge! I tried to think of a non-traditional shape and found this picture and thought "well, rain drops are a shape, right??" :) I didn't use the word "drop" in my title, but did highlight the word rainy. This was lots of fun! Thanks, Jane!
Debbie F: This layout was different for me in that I used 8 pictures on a single page layout. That posed a challenge for me in how to work in 10 of my shape - hearts. I decided to use patterned paper with hearts so as not to overcrowd my page. I suppose I cheated a bit in using the word "Love" in my title instead of heart- but that's what a heart means, right? ;0) Thanks Jane for a fab challenge!
Have fun and thanks for playing! Remember that at the end of the week one participant will be featured as our "How Awesome is Too Awesome - Weekly Wow" and will be in the running to win a RAK at the end of the month! Post a link to your layout in the HMITM thread at Two Peas.
