Hello October! A new month means a busy time for all those monthly challenge blogs! I have 3 layouts that will be going live today- I have had a very busy weekend in the craft room!! First up I'm going to share the October challenge at The Craft Garden. This month we're having a recipe challenge, which is always a ton of fun, especially if you're stuck for creative ideas! The DT came up with the recipe, and then we had to create using at least 4 of the items, don't you wish real cooking was that easy? Here's the recipe: buttons, banner, flowers, pink, ribbon, a tag, sparkle. And here's my layout:
I decided to go with buttons, banners, a tag and sparkle. A few fun things t note: to add sparkle to the layout, I first wrote my title with marker, and then went over the letters with Stickles. Super-easy way to bring a little bling, just be sure to set it aside, those Stickles take forever to dry! For my banner, I cut 1" strips of cardstock scraps and ran them through my Big Shot to give them some texture. Then I handcut the little triangles and adhered them to my twine with glue dots.
I hope you'll pull out the ingredients from our recipe and cook up something great! Don't forget to link up at The Craft Garden for your chance to win a great selection of goodies! =) T
