The last few months for me have been filled with various family and friend celebrations.  :partytime2: 

Looking back at my calendar I count a 25th birthday and 2 Confirmations;  2 Graduate, 1 College, 1 High School and 2 Grade School graduations and 4 more parties - each on different days.  Whew. 

                                                                                        :circle:

With so many happy times and accomplishments I’ve been partying for two months straight, yet I have scrapped not even one of those events.  Uh-oh.   

So, my challenge for today is to scrap the last celebration you were a part of.  It can be any you deem a celebration, but try to make it the last one you attended.

When you are finished please post your completed layout in the Tuesday NL Gallery

 for all of us to see.

I can’t wait to share in your happy times!

 

Here’s my layout:

Graduation

 

PS --

After posting this thread I opened my mail.  Add another HS Graduation and party to the fun!

June is a month of seasonal changes;  the southern hemisphere begins their winter  :snow_cool:   :winter_brr:  while we in the north enjoy warmer summer days.   :happy-sun:  

In my painting class we learned about warm and cool colors.   WARM” colors are made with orange, red and yellows and remind us of sunlight and heat, while COOL” colors are shades of blues, greens and light purple which make us think of water and sky.  Most paintings are either cool or warm but adding a pop of the opposite color can also help bring you into the focus point on your page.  Interesting, huh?

 

So, for today I challenge you to play with color and create a layout that is primarily “warm” or “cool” on the color wheel.  Feel free to add a pop of the opposite colors and tell us in your layout notes which choice you made and why.  

When you are finished please post your layout in the Tuesday Challenge Gallery and leave a link back here in this thread.  

Have fun and I can’t wait to see what you decide on!

This week’s Newsletter Challenge is a Sketch one which can be found HERE

on the ScrapGirls blog.  Remember that sketches are meant to be used as an inspiration for your layout and not copied exactly.  So have fun creating your page with  ideas from the sketch.  

When you are finished, please post your layout in the

Newsletter Challenge Gallery and post a link back here in the thread.

 

Don’t forget to post a link in the May Challenge Chase thread if you’re participating in that game, too.

I can’t wait to see where the sketch takes you.

Thanks to Andrea for creating a great sketch for us!  :)

Tuesday N L Challenge 5/3/16

This week we’re exploring how to mix patterns on a page.  Mixing patterns are a big trend in clothing this Spring (Autumn if in the Southern Hemisphere!) and I don’t know about you,

but this is one of the most difficult things for me to do when creating a scrapbook page.  

A wonderful tutorial by April Martell is a great help and you can find it here -

How to Use Patterns

 

Your page does not need to be a Heritage page but for today’s NL Challenge we’d like to see you use a bold mix of patterns on your layout using one of the techniques used in the tutorial. 

 

When it is completed please post it in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery and add a link in this thread.  

Don't forget to add your link to the May Challenge Chase Gallery too, once the chart is posted!

 

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
