The last 5 challenges... I finished!!!!

Here are the last five challenges. I worked on these, with only a short dinner break, from 5pm to midnight. But I got them done!

Aimee's Happy Anniversary challenge: use the #5 and then groups of 5 (like 5 pp, or 5 embellies). I had: #5, 5 stars, 5 pp, 5 photo corners, 5 tiny alpha stickers, 5 green rhinestones (hard to see - look on left side of scalloped border) and 5 pictures. I used the supplies in my Becky Higgins School Expansion pack... I LOVE this page! I hated these pictures but now I think he looks cute... thank you BECKY!!!

Carla's Ad Inspiration challenge: use the ad she posted as inspiration for your page, either the theme, colours or layout. I used the colours and fall theme.

Aimee's Milestones challenge: scrap a milestone in YOUR life, I picked turning 30. You had to have metal on the page - I used the studded flourish and a metal brad on the clock. You also couldn't use pp! That was hard. I did use a journalling box... I hope that wasn't cheating!

Aimee's gift card challenge: make a card or other project to jazz up giving a gc to someone - I'm using this for someone on my Xmas list :)

Last one....
Michy's interactive card: I made the card folded and then you pull out the insert. I am thinking of altering this and making it so the insert will fit a 4x6 picture for my Xmas cards. I have tons of scraps to do this style! Much easier than it looks.

That's all for me today. Two very late nights working on this but I am pleased with the results. I managed to use the challenges to scrap some pictures I had wanted to get done, learned some new techniques and had fun! And I did all of these off a folding table in my living room... we are having to move all the basement upstairs in prep for our carpet going in next week! I was up and down, up and down needing ink or flowers or a pen or this or that... but I still had fun!
