Here is what Faye had to say: Hi Hi!! I am Faye and I am really excited to be a guest designer at HMITM this week!!!! I live in northern California which is definitely not the "daisy dukes, bikini's on top" part of California. I also consider myself a Montana girl cause that is where I grew up!! Go Griz!!!! I heart scrapbooking, my cat Rory, thrift store shopping, reality tv, exclamation points!!!, ice cream, funny youtube videos, and facebook! I have a etsy shop of handmade and vintage goodies and a my blog A Little Dash of... please check 'em out if you have a few.
For my challenge I thought of two things... I love music and I love the number challenges at HMITM. So for this challenge we are going to use Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4" song. Your challenge should you accept it is to...
use 25 items
use 6 rub-ons, 2 (to) pattern papers, and 4 buttons.
If you want to get crazy you could do both like I did. Can't wait to see how everyone's layouts turn out!!!!!!!
Elizabeth: Loved this challenge! I put my little fish & bubble rubons onto epoxy stickers (it's hard to see in the scan) and used them along with clear buttons to imitate bubbles in a bath. I have well over 25 things on this page when you include all the pictures and letter stickers!
Janet: Great challenge to create this week. I did both of the challenge parts on this - the 25 items total with the rest of the list. I 'm really happy with the way it turned out because I thought that with that many items it was going to seem crowded but it didn't. This is a picture of my son Jeff for another page in my lodge book.
The journaling is: It's nice to see Jeff relaxing for a few minutes. We have to remind him always of the time that dad was telling him when he built his business that he used to work 18 hours a day. His comment at the time was "Dad no man can work 18 hours a day." Now it's Jeff getting up at 4 am. to spray his grapes or getting 4 hours of sleep a night at harvest time. We always say to him "Jeff no man can work that many hours. " Take a break Jeff - you need it.
Amanda: What a fun challenge! I did both parts also (if I counted correctly) using 25 items including 6 rubons, 2 patterned papers and 4 buttons. And to make it fun, I included a Top 25 list from my youngest daughter! Loving the new Crate Paper Restoration line and used mostly that on this layout as well as Glimmer Misted flowers and lace.
Anna-Karin: Awesome challenge! I used 6 rub-on letters (tiny ones, on the ticket), 4 green buttons and two patterned papers. If you count the individual letters, I used 25 items too. The title of the layout translates: ‘The fun mobile’ and it is about Anton’s fascination with his mobile when he was a small baby. Thanks for a great challenge Faye!
