Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge - M4TW14

>> Friday, January 29, 2010

Woohoo! I did it! I actually got something done for the PMS Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge!
I wasnt sure it was going to happen! But after walking along the beach for a couple hours and then going up and down the boardwalk at least 4 times (it's a long boardwalk!) my kids were POOPED! I think Gabe might have taken the longest nap he has ever taken! I'm not sure what i'm in for tonight! haha! So, while the kiddos were down, i took the time to play a little with a digi scrapbook layout!

First, let me do the spiel.... every friday a different PMS Makeup Artist (thats a design team member!) issues a makeup 4 the Weekend challenge on the PMS blog. Christi (what would i do without her) arranges everything and posts her creation along with the challenger! So you just simply have to go to the PMS blog to check them out! And to see who else is playing this week!
This is also where you can link up your project and then next thursday, Tangii will show you a showoff of everyone's cards! Super fun!

This week our Challenger was Christi Snow. She gave us a fabulous inspiration challenge from a photo she found in the Pottery Barn catalog...

Here is the inspiration photo...

Isnt that gorgeous! I wish i could have a fun bedroom like that! My hubby pretty much kabooshes any idea of fun or frilly things in the bedroom. It's pretty simple and slightly manly in there (minus the man smell, thats where i take over! haha!)

Well, being in a bit of a limited supply... i decided to work on a digi scrapbook page! I think digi scrapping is fun, i just dont know how good i am at it! That paired with the fact that i take inspiration challenges entirely too literally (ok, sometimes i think thats just a fun way to make it even more challenging)... here is the digi layout i came up with!

Ok, so admittedly there isnt a whole lot of PMS on there, but the sentiment at the top is one of the wordarts that PMS offers as both a rubber stamp (in the Friendly Flowers set) and as a single digi wordart... just for the digi scrappers who love the PMS wordart style and want to use them on their digi layouts! You can of course buy a digi version and print out the wordart as well. :)

The blue polka dot paper came from the Alphabet Soup kit by Melissa Bennett at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I had thought i'd use a little more of the kit, but i ended up created most of the rest of the layout in photoshop (including the black and white polka dot... i was very impressed with myself!) The red ribbon at the top is all Melissa, but the rest of the layout (flowers too) is my own. :)

So thats what i have for ya today! Perhaps on a day with a wee bit more time i'll show you the super easy way to create brads and things in a digi layout. That way you will always be able to adorn your digi layout pages with the exact colors in the layout even if you dont have them in the digi kit!

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!!
