Week 2 Challenge at Just Scrappin'

So, we are on to week 2 for the sponsored challenge at Just Scrappin'. The prize is a kit specially put together for JS by Kelly with Keep In Touch. The challenge was:

The Recipe
DUE By 10:00pm July 20th!

This theme is 2! Read carefully!!! You want to get this right!

Using ONLY TWO colors!

You may choose from these Color Combinations.
The ONLY other color allowed is Black OR white...NOT black AND white.. ONLY one or the other!




Brown/Blue - Check - My color combo choice.


You must use TWO pieces of non-flower Chipboard No more no less Check - Two pieces of non flower chipboard are on the corners of the pictures

You must use either 2 pieces of felt OR 2 paint colors Not BOTH No more no less Check - I painted the chipboard blue then painted brown dots on them.

You must use 2 Flower OR Pieces of Ribbon No more no less Check - 2 ribbons threaded on the side by using the Leave it to Weaver punch I won from Just Scrappin',

OH AND 2 Pictures!!!!! Check - Used 2 pictures from our recent road trip of the beautifully majestic old churches in Fredricksburg.

OK, I did it!!! After two disasters I walked away last night and woke up fresh this morning. Rob had to go pick up some cables from the electronics store which happened to be near Archiver's so he dropped me off and I went in to find my inspiration. As soon as I saw the brown butterfly paper (by Chatterbox) I knew instantly what I would be doing!!!

OK, so mats are:

Blue Cardstock - Bazzill Bling
Brown PP - Chatterbox Flutter Woods
Chipboard - Making Memories exclusively for Archivers
Paint - Making Memories

Brad - Misc Stash

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
