Hot diggity, it’s Friday and I’m not even late for the challenge! And I’ve posted two days in a row, it must be a new kind of record for me! Our challenge was to use the layout on page 12 of the Holiday Mini.

- Inks: More Mustard Craft, More Mustard, Basic Black, Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie Classic
- CS: More Mustard, Naturals
- Misc: Chocolate Taffeta, Gold Brads, On Board Trimmings Chipboard
This was a photo that I cut up of Adria and her best friend, Sarah. We did a leaf shoot a couple of years ago and of course, pictures still aren’t scrapped. I’m thinking I should have a scrapbooking retreat for myslef and my customers one of these days! Anyhoo, I needed to do the mirror image of the sample as not to cover Sarah’s face. Looking back, I didn’t realize the On Board Garland Greetings have chipboard leaves and that would have been perfect. I was a bit distracted this morning by Hurricane Ella when I was working on this challenge
The circle center of the ornament did work ok. I simply sponged the mustard craft pad directly on the chipboard and allowed it to dry. I tried stamping and coloring the chipboard itself but I wanted more coloration variation so cut out a watercolored pumpkin instead. I’m itching to try the snowflakes in the same On Board pack and use a black and white snowscene. I think it’d make a great 6×6 xmas card!
Toodles, we are experiencing the eye of the Hurricane as it’s nap time and all is peaceful, calm and quiet. I must get some work done before the "eye" of the storm moves off and we are regaled with the full force of Hurricane Ella again!
