Scrap 'N Chat Challenge Day

Oh yeah!!! Today is the 15th and Challenges are reveal at our brand new scrappy forum Scrap 'N Chat!!! You got to come and check it out. The board is smaller, chatty, and full of challenges sure to spark your mojo!!

Here is mine...It's called Janet's Choice...hehehe...I get to choose every 15th what I want to do...'cause I can! LOL!!!

Anyway...I recently purged my stash...I'm a very bad girl...sheesh...and I have this magazine by CK called Budget-Friendly Scrapbooking. I'm LOVING this book/magazine. I think I almost have every page dog eared. It is all about scrapbooking on a budget, but still with enough detail to please the eye.

On page 67 there is a layout by Maggie Holmes. She used one of those full-sized laser cuts for her background. I'm sure you are thinking...
big deal...well here is the thing. She painted the whole thing. So it looks like a monochromatic textured background! Genius!!! I have a ton of those laser cuts and never use them because they are NEVER the right freaking color.

So I took her technique and a lo I pinned by Keely Yowler for My little Shoebox and came up with this. It will be the first page of an album I'm doing about my mom.

So please, come and play with me!!! Can't wait to see you over at Scrap 'N Chat!!!
