I can be really really stupid. Like, for instance, I found out that I totally ignored the fact that the challenge for "Let's get Shabby" had to be birthday related. I made the diary which I showed in my previous post. Of course, it is a diary, so I could argue that I wrote all of my friends' birthdays in there, but somehow I don't think that will count LOL. So, I'll do my best to come up with something else. I don't have any idea yet, but it'll come to me, I'm sure.
Another stupid thing to do is make a LO for a challenge, and totally don't take any notice of the due date... that's what I did for the June "From Screen to Scrap" Challenge. For one reason or another I was sure I had until the end of the month to finish the LO ... NOT! Ah well, I don't mind. I never enter these challenges to win anyway, I hardly ever do. But they do help me to find some inspiration and they always push me to do things I would normally never think of. Like with this challenge ... the inspiration was this poster:
I loved this image so much, I decided to try and paint the exact same background. Of course, it didn't turn out exactly the same, but still, I really like the result. This was one of those times that the LO turned out exactly like I had envisioned it in my head.
My girls love it as well. I've already had my orders from Christina to make one just like it for her as well. So Shazza, if you're reading this, I'm so sorry I was too late, but I'm really happy with the result, so thank you! And I promise I'll try and find some time to enter this month's challenge, preferably on time this time...
Off to see if I can find some birthday-related stamps ...
