challenges.

One of the reasons I started a blog was to have a way for me to get more involved with scrapbooking and stamping challenges. I figured it would serve as good incentive to try some new things that I normally wouldn't do. So I decided to participate in Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge this week! AAhHH! It is kind of scary for me ( in a good way!) Anyway, so here it is.....my first attempt at a challenge:




The colors were bright red, bright pink, grass green, soft gray and black! It seemed a little hard to get all of them on there at first, but when I thought of using these super cute trees from Papertrey Ink's Merry and Bright set, it came together pretty quickly. I used black for the trunks instead of a brown :) I actually had a lot of fun creating this. I hope to keep participating in these each week. I always love seeing everyone's creations each week :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Great job on your first challenge -- and one of the tougher color combinations, too, in my opinion. Hope to be seeing more challenge work from you!
