Today is FRIDAY, APRIL 9th-FARM FRESH FRIDAY, over at The Greeting Farm Blog. The FFF challenge that week is a "Spring Cleaning Challenge" (use something you either
a.) found that you forgot you had or
b.) were going to throw OUT but decided to use it for this challenge.
On your Honor! Make it Fun!!!
For the Challenge I did 2 different creations. The first is a scrapbook page and I used 2 different things I forgot I had, one is this BEAUTIFUL picture of my oldest daughter Destiny. I printed this picture months ago and put it up and forgot all about it until I was trying to find something to use for this challenge. My daughter wanted me to throw this picture away because when I printed it my color ink was running out and she didn't like teh way it printed. She wanted me to reprint it, but I just couldn't throw it away. It's of my daughter and I LOVE IT!
The other thing I forgot I had was the Fiskars border/corner punch I used around the out side of my layout. It's funny how a person can have so may things thaey forgot they had. But what's not so funny is when you know you have something and you can't remember where in the world you put it. That's happens to me everytime I clean and organize my craft area!!
For my second creation I made a card. And I used something that most people would just toss in the trash and soon as they opened the packaging. You know the front sheet of the BASIC GREY paper pack(12x12) that shows you the different patterns that are in the pack? Well, I decided when I created my scrapbook page that I would use the front sample sheet for a card and not throw it away. The stars was also stamped on the same scrap sheet and all the pieces was stamped on little scrap pieces of white CS.
I hope you decide to play along with us this week, as this was really a fun challenge! I hope you like my creations!! Now it's your turn.
