I made this crazy, busy page of 4 songs that have been important to me in my life over the years. Obviously this isn't a complete list of songs but I simply chose the first 4 that popped into my head and shared why they were / are important to me. This page is a total scraplift of a lady in the Facebook group Craft the Story. However, my page is entirely digital. I tried to make all of the pieces to look like chipboard (which was the original page). Love, love how this one turned out. In addition, this is a prompt I snagged from one of the 10 challenges offered in the August Scrap Challenge, again from the Craft the Story Facebook group.
In August the Ali Edwards Facebook group held its annual August Scrap Challenge hosted by my friend Traci Brookes whereby Traci and her team of three, challenged the scrapbooking community to - scrap. They posted 10 different challenges. Our goal was to create a scrapbooking layout based on those challenges. I participated again this year and completed all 10 challenges.
Today, I am sharing all of the challenges and all of the pages I created for those challenges. This is get-out-of-the-end-of-summer-scrapbook-funk type of scrapbooking. I love it! This year the challenges were seriously outside of the box and within the 10 challenges actually offer so many more scrapbooking jumping off points, or story sparks. Below, I put the challenges in order, however, that isn't necessarily how I scraped. We had a deadline of August 31 which, thankfully, I met that goal.
Challenge #1 | 4 Seasons and De-stash your stash / Use your stash. Document 4 seasons or think outside the box. I decided to document my 4 seasons that I have been swimming (I begin swimming regularly - again - in July 2020); thus I have been swimming through 4 actual seasons.
Challenge #2 | Dig into your ideas folder and scraplift a page. Always a fun challenge, and super easy. As I scrap digitally, 95% of the time and hybrid, 5% of the time any pages that I scraplift are almost always either tradition physical pages or hybrid pages which I translate into digital pages. That is what I did here.
Challenge #3 | OUTSIDE. The challenge was simply outside. This page will be going in my mini-album WATERFALLS album that I am slowly making headway on.
Challenge #4 | 4 Stories, 4 Elements, Same Story Kit. I used the AMPERSAND Story kit and told 4 stories with 4 elements surrounding Jeff and I's Saturday morning breakfast dates.
Challenge #5, Start with the story + Use a Story Kit or Just Write Word prompt. I used the latest Story kit one word prompt TEACH as my jumping off point to tell the story of TEACH.
Challenge # 6: Use these 4 things: a shape (in this case I used a circle), strips of paper, chipboard, and photo(s). I used the OLD/NEW Story kit to document how we refreshed our master bedroom.
Challenge # 7 - A sketch. The challenge offered a 4 column / 4 square sketch that we are to use to create a page from. I took the challenge literally and created my page around the literal 4 column / 4 square sketch and told the story about Athena's routines and how she has become Princess Athena to us.
Challenge #8 - Find a quote in your stash and create a page around it. I used a quote card from the BREATHE Story kit, and embellishments from the same and created a personal reflection page.
Challenge #9 - Choose your own adventure (4 books, 4 movies, 4 songs) that were influential in your life + de-stash your chipboard. I choose 4 books plus the READ Story kit for my 'adventure' and told the story of the 4 books(sets) that have had a huge influence on my life.
Challenge #10 - 4 Elements (Earth, Fire, Air, Water). Document and capture a story about one of these elements. I chose to document Fire & Air of the recent photo I captured in August - the fire rainbow cloud, sometimes known as.
