If you are a follower of Scrapbooksteals.com, you know all about their fun challenges that they love to issue. This blog hop is based on the challenges that they have issued in conjunction with Birthday week and Online Crop Party tonight. Sounds Fun, right?!
I am always up for a good challenge so I accepted all 4 challenges.
Happy 4th birthday – use 4 items
Use four items and ONLY four items for your project.
My 5 year old is obsessed with art and crafting. I don't know where she got it from. ;) She is daily giving me projects to hang up so I thought it would be fun to make her a place of her very own to hang her projects. The 4 items I used for this project are: 12x12 ChipDecor Square from Hobby Lobby, ink, fabric paper, and mini clothespins. The "I love art" fabric paper was a KI Memories steal and the plain fabric paper is from American Crafts.
Challenge #2- 2009
Since we launched in 2009, do a project remembering your favorite part of the year.
It was a bit hard to pick my favorite moment from 2009 because there were so many great ones. I decided to go with the moment in September when we found out that we were having a BOY! I always dreamed of having all boys. We had two sweet girls already and I was really hoping for a boy. Because of him, I get to use all those fun boy papers, like Authentique's Loyal. It is so fun having a boy and despite my wishes for all boys, we were only blessed with one and that I am grateful for. :) (They are so different than girls!)
Challenge #3 – Favorite Vendor
Choose your favorite ScrapbookSTEALS.com vendor and create a project using their products.
Picking a favorite vendor wasn't too hard for me. :) Those who have known me for awhile or have seen me on the SS wall know of my obsession with Fancy Pants. The wonderful buyers at SS (Love you Brittany and Melodee!) are always so wonderful in getting Fancy Pants stuff for me to add to my collection. I used their wonderful Park Bench collection and Kiwi Lane Templates (another one of my favorite SS steals) to create a fun layout of the hubby and I.
Challenge #4 – Washi Fever
Create a project using everyone's newest obsession, washi tape. On this project you must use 4 different tapes (since we are celebrating our 4th birthday).
Who doesn't love washi tape?! I have more than enough washi to last me until the end of time. It is cute and addicting. I use it quite a bit on my layouts, but I wanted to try something new. I stole some of these fabulous MME Washi Tape sets awhile back and thought this was the perfect opportunity to really use them.
This is just a little 5x7 canvas covered with washi and an inspirational quote. I need something to help remind me that I have done difficult things and that I can conquer any obstacle in my way.
After you are done with the hop, be sure what you do what you need to do on the Scrapbooksteals.com's blog so that you can be enter into the prize associated with each challenge. (Participants will have until next Wednesday, midnight mountain time to post links to their entries.)
Also I would love to give away a little scrappy something for a commenter on this post. Just tell me what your favorite Scrapbooksteals steal has been. I will select a winner for this wonderful prize on Wednesday night. :)
Now keep hopping on to Charissa's blog to see what awesome project she has in store!
