One of the reasons I decided to revive my blog is I missed playing along w/ Blog Challenges.
Sure I could play along w/ Blogs and post on IG but some Blogs do not have an IG account to to tag and I want to be able to "tag" the inspiration behind some of my layouts.
For instance this layout was inspired by The Counterfeit Challenge Blog:
Their current challenge has us counterfeiting the following kit:
I used to play along w/ this blog frequently but stopped, even before I (temporarily) closed down my blog, because I didn't enjoy making a kit before-hand and then having to put way all the pieces of the kit I didn't use. We Scrapbookers have enough trouble keeping our scrappy supplies organized, amirite?! LOL! So I took a different approach that was still in the spirit of the overall challenge, which was to go through my full scrappy stash to mimic items I saw in the inspiration kit.
In the end I still used the inspiration kit to inspire my layout and I still used my scrappy stash to create my layout!
