Happy Birthday

Hi friends! I've got a new layout to share with you today. :) In my scrapbooking group (Scrappin-N-Chattin) I host a challenge each month called the 24 Hour Challenge. The way it works is that you have a collection (you choose 3 from your stash that you're ok working with) and sketch (I choose 3 different ones) chosen for you by other players for you to work with, and then you have 24 hours to complete a layout with them and be entered to win a yummy prize! I used to play along with the other ladies every month but lately haven't been able to. Well yesterday I was and I'm so glad!

Supplies: Simple Stories Happy Day Paper - Make A Wish & Flash Cards; Bazzill Cardstock - Kraft; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Sentimentally Ali; Studio Calico Mister Huey's Color Mists - Classic Calico & Calico Cream; Fiskars Star Punches; Making Memories Star Brads

The group as a whole chose the Simple Stories Happy Day collection for me and an amazing sketch posted on the Write Click Scrapbook blog (which you can see here). It can be a challenge sometimes to work with things that you had no control over picking, but it can also be alot of fun! Sometimes I end up with pages I probably never would've made otherwise and I absolutly love that. ;)

If the 24 hour challenge is something you'd like to try and an amazing group of fun (and very chatty, lol!!) scrapbooking loving women sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, we'd love to have you join our group anytime! We're all very close and love welcoming new people. :)

Thanks for stopping by today...I'll be back soon with some new cards to share. Yesterday was very productive for me!


I'm entering this project in the following challenges...
Wee Memories - Buttons, Brads or Bows
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
