Okay, this one might be a little tough, but I think you can do it!

Since we are starting a new year, let's say goodbye to 2008 by using:

20 embellishments on a LO
8 different pieces of patterned paper


Now, some people might think this is insane, but ANY embellishment from the tiniest rhinestone or brad DOES count. And 8 pieces of patterned paper can be 8 little squares or circles or whatever, cut out from different pieces of paper.

You can do it!! Inspire me!

welp, I totally stole this layout from scrapbook etc's december issue. I figure that since I'm new to scrapbooking, stealing layouts is forgivable since I'm learning. I saw it and thought it was the perfect opportunity to use some photos I didn't really have a place for. But I say that about a lot of layouts and I never do them. So, when I saw this challenge, I immediately thought of it and got to it.

I originally changed it up a bit with two photos on the top and two on the bottom, but in the end I stuck with the original layout because I was having trouble with squaring off edges and making them not stick out. I got in all 8 patterned papers, tho two of them are prolly hard to see cuz they're marbled. Not sure if leaves and flowers count as embellishments, but I counted them! I had some little jewels to put on the spring and winter trees but decided they didn't need the bling. The spring side now has some little butterflies that I just added but I'm not gonna retake the photo (sorry - just imagine 3 lil pretty floaty butterflies! ). The most time consuming part was cutting out the tree. I found a long twig-like tree outline while looking at the piecing challenge stuff and I used that as a base and then made it my own from there (it doesn't really look like the original imo), then I had to trace and cut out 4 of 'em...my right pointy finger hurts from holding the xacto knife so hard!

Overall, I'm verrrry happy with the way it turned out. I would have never come up with it on my own, but it was a good challenge for me to work through choosing papers, photos and managing a large amount of stuff. Learned a lot!

The 20 embellishments were so hard!! The pinwheels I counted as 2 each (the pinwheel, then a brad in the middle), 7 buttons, 2 bigger, silver brads, 3 ribbons, & 2 eyelets. WHEW! And the 8 pieces of patterned paper are the strips making the background.

Marike - Love the trees. Very creative!

Scrappy Mom - The pinwheels are great. I really like the glitter embellishments, too.

This one was hard!! I actually used nine patterned paper and one solid, plus 21 embellishments. There are 5 patterned on the left and 4 on the right. The embellishments are the stickers and the foil turkeys.

Robyn - another great page. I like how you used the patterned paper behind the photos in strips.

Amanda your double page turned out great. Those turkeys are cute.

Those are great pages ladies! This is a tough one. I hope to give this a try later this week since I wasn't able to get in any scrapping this weekend.

Marike it's not stealing just lifting and we all do that. I'm super impressed you used an exacto knife to cut out those trees, my hand isn't steady enough to do curves, the whole LO is just amazing, it is such a great idea and i think i might Lift it from you it would make a great picture to hang on your wall.

WOW Robyn, i love this page, the colors the patterns all look so good

Amanda good idea splitting it into a 2 pager, it turned out very nice, the foil turkeys are cute
