Challenge # 159: Roll the dice...

Hi everyone, it's Debbie F, bringing you this week's challenge.

Go to this site:

and virtually "roll" 3 dice.

* The value of the first die is the number of pictures you are to use.

* The value of the second die is the number of patterned papers you'll use.

* Now add all three dice together. This is how many embellishments you'll use on your layout.

* A final twist... use black and white somewhere on your page.

As I was looking for photos to work with these papers, I came across my last pictures of Mike's grandmother, who was a dear lady who always made me smile whenever I saw or spoke to her.She passed away this year, and I truly miss her. The pictures are from her 90th surprise birthday.

So I rolled 2-5-3. Two pictures, five patterned papers and a total of 10 embellishments. My embellishments were the banner, the wooden chip, the doilie, the resin rose, title Thickers, one element cut out, 3 tiny type stickers, and one circle sticker. I used plenty of black accents and cream as my shade of white. Love how it turned out! I hope you have fun with this challenge.

Elizabeth: This was so fun! I have never heard of this site before, but it was cool! My numbers were 2, 4, 1. I loved the addition of black/white to the challenge.

Janet M: What a fun and creative challenge this one was. My numbers were 4 -5 -1 .I didn't see the addition of black and white on the page post though so mine just has to count as the journaling strips.Amanda: How fun, Debbie! I rolled 1-3-4. I loved working with the new BG Marjolaine line! SO PRETTY!Debbi T: Such a fun and clever challenge, Debbie! I was surprised when I rolled a 2-2-2. This was very challenging limiting myself to two patterned papers and only 6 embellishments, but I was very thankful that I didn't roll a 6 for the picture part! I realized I'm running out of space in my paper cart that holds my kit papers, so I decided to dig into an old Studio Calico kit from a couple of years ago and managed to use up a bit of that--hence the green cardstock, which I'm not sure goes with the rest of the layout, but I was very happy to finally open up the package rub-ons that came in that kit! This is for my book of all the little reasons I love my husband.

Georgia: I really loved this challenge, i rolled 3-4-6 so 3 photos, 4 patterned papers and 13 total embellishments. I just picked up the new campfire range by October Afternoon so I was dying to use it and these photos were perfect... and i have to confess I ended up with more than 13 embellishments, I was on track and then I had a slight accident with a glimmer mist bottle and had to try and salvage it lol...
