Friendly Challenge

My crafty friend, Shamu aka Ms.Craftylicious told me that she has been running out of mojo to create and I told her, "Mind having a challenge to get you back in the game?" She said she would love to! First, I gave her this challenge and she did it so well!! Then next challenge and she excelled it again!

This latest challenge I told her that I will do it together with her since I have not been creating for a while too... hehe!

At first I was ok but yesterday I was a little freaked out because I haven't started the project at all!! What did I get myself into, haha ... it was pretty near to bed time so I started to search for materials, "The Girl's Paperie" patterned papers caught my eye and that was what I needed. After searching, jumped right into the challenge. So this is what I created in an hour using the beautiful-pastel colored-photo collage I got from the internet. Well I am not that fortunate all the time ok? Sometimes my layouts can go up to 4-5 hours, sometimes I need to bring it forward the next day!

Present to you my interpretation of the inspiration photos ...

I was so glad to have the Prima Cherry Blossoms because it kinda solved part of my prob. LOL! It's ok to hoard sometimes because you will use it someday. Can you see that I am trying to comfort myself , ok? Haha.

Love that wedding vow from 7G's!

This lovely rounded crochet trimming I got from Rita@Work. She does beautiful things!

I adore the fan alot. Mr Handsome was kind enough to accompany me and he helped me to punch the edges for the fan. He is a very supportive hubby and loves to play around with my tools at times. Haha! He calls the "Crop-a-dile" - a weapon of mass destruction... how cute!

Care to join us in future for a "Friendly Challenge"? Would love to have more to play, it'd be cool to see other interpretations too rite? You can be a scrapbooker/cardmaker/paper crafter :) Just in the name of FUN or to kick start the "mojoless moments"! Let me know if you are interested :)

Ok, need to go check out Shamu's layout and do drop by again tomorrow!!

Xoxo Jessy
