November MemoryWorks Challenge #2

The second challenge for the month was to create a layout about what you were thankful for. Again the design was to be based on a prechoosen pagemap. It also included an additional challenge to use at least 4 different mediums not including your paper.

I made my layout about my husband's family. When I was in the hospital they all pitched in and helped out with Julian. They are a lot of fun and I enjoy spending time with them.
This is also the first time that I have used the distress paint by Ranger. You can see the crackling in the second photo. I loved this paint!!! It was extremely easy to use and I can't wait to use it again.

November Memory Works Challenge #1

I completed the November challenges on the Memory Works message board. I was excited to get them done and get back in the swing of things after being so sick for so long.
The first challenge was to design a thank you card based on a pagemap. The goal was to thank a veteran for their service to the country in honor of veteran's day. I liked the pagemap so much I made a few extra cards.

The papers are all from MemoryWorks Express kits. There is always such a great variety to work with. The large red flower is from Petaloo. I love their flowers!
