Behind the 8 Ball - HMITM 111 (July 20 - August 2)

Ready for another challenge? I love something that gives me focus for my layout and also helps me use up my stash. During the summer it can feel like you are 'behind the 8 ball' in the scrapbooking department, and that was my inspiration for this week's challenge. Create a layout using...

8 - brads
8 - flowers
8 - buttons
8 - letter stickers

Post a link in The Pub at 2peas over the next two weeks so we can see your creation, and have fun with it!

Elizabeth: (I used a sketch from Page Maps for this layout), it was fun to frame my focal picture with all the different embellishments without making the layout feel too cluttered.

I went digital for this challenge and managed to fit 5 photos along with the other requirements. I used a bunch of brads as the center of one of my flowers so that it wouldn't look too crowded.

Debbi T:

I had so much fun with this challenge! I had printed this photo out kind of big, and there wasn't a whole lot of space on my 8 x 8 page for too much stuff, but I did manage to get all of the required elements on there by layering some of the flowers and using the buttons to top the flowers. I was really happy to use some of my ancient Primas!

Lisa: I am so excited to be joining this great team! Thanks girls for inviting me. I generally don't use a lot of embellishments on my layouts so this was a great challenge for me. I think the hardest part was getting all the buttons on there, but I did it and I am really happy with how it all turned out. And I got to use up a lot of my stash in the process!
