JULY CHALLENGE #1

Saturday's date is 07.0.7.07. That got me thinking.....

What if I was to give you a list of 7 things with which to build a page
Photos; Patterned Paper; Journalling; Cardstock; Brads; Techniques; Stamps and then said you had to use only one of one item, two of another, three of another and so on until you for to seven of the last item in your list?
What if that page was then about you? and how about that page had to be SEVEN things about YOU, right now, today?
Here's the one I made yesterday. My list goes like this:
1 photo; 2 stamps; 3 techniques (sponging, inking, scissor distressing); 4 patterned papers; 5 pieces of cardstock; 6 brads; 7 things about me (journalling)!





I guess we could make it really fun and make that page at 7am on July 7th, 2007 - but I can't imagine there's anyone up for being here at 7am!

Excellent job with the hand drawn doodles and the colouring Miss K!

Here's Tammi's reply to the challenge - WOW - great job Tammi! Here's Tammi's supply list:-

Love the idea Karen (I am already planning). Thank you for challenging me, I am loving being challenged right now, not only in scrapbooking but in other areas of life too. I haven't challenged myself for so long, it really feels good. It's really helping me feel happy with who I am (and kind of proud too) and scrapbooking helps me express it!

I love the camps you have planned and I want in on everyone of them (surprise, surprise) but I won't be able to do any of them in July as Paul will be in Ireland. So it looks like August for me! (I am especially excited about the notebook).

Ooh, almost forgot - Love your layout - It is so tempting to scraplift, and the paper is perfect!
