CHALLENGE DAY! When I read the challenge on Method Playground's blog I was immediately ecstatic. Why? Well first, I've been crazy about collages ever since finally replacing the color cartridge in my printer. Second, I'm finally getting the hang of these collage templates from Scrapbooks Etc. and Adobe Photoshop Elements (I'm a MAC owner - here's the link for PC's). Let me tell you - there is a LOT less cursing when I'm using Elements now. Third, I had FOUR layouts that fit into this challenge that I am actually happy with - a miracle within itself. Fourth, I didn't have to expend any energy to make these layouts because they were already done. Scratch that. I didn't have to expend any energy beyond taking photos of the layouts and uploading them on to my computer. Very good. Fifth, I get a chance to save all my crafty, inspiring goodness for my craft weekend with one of my favorite people this weekend. Yay! Good challenge. No, great challenge! AND, this week I will be commenting on their blog with a link to my pages. Which means - the blog will have to go public. Pretty scary if you ask me. I think I've worked out most of the kinks. Anyhoo. Give it a try. Stretch yourself creatively (even if it only means taking pictures of old layouts and uploading them to your computer). Which is a good reminder to take the pictures BEFORE they go into the album. Go ahead do a challenge. It really can be a blast! Happy Crafting!
BTW: Yes, I love Brad Pitt. I have no idea if it's okay to post those pictures. I found them on the internet. Downloaded each to my desktop and made a collage. Love it so much. Assuming it's okay since I found the pics on the internet and I am clearly never selling the layout. Not the layout of my Brad! ;)
