Hi Stampers, welcome back to my Creative Spa!
Have you ever needed inspiration? I know I have needed it, and on Saturday, I got it. VDS (virtual stamping day) Challenges gave me a jumping point. I completed two challenges. Scrapbook challenges even. I am more of a scrapbooker wannabe than a real scrapbooker.
The first challenge I completed had to be about water. First finding a picture I had was a challenge. I found it very irritating, because last summer I took so many pictures while watching my daughter and all her cousins poolside. <Grrrrr> I FINALLY found one that was several years old.
In the south, they call it being a redneck. Here it is called Maine ingenuity. The kids didn’t feel the slip’n slide was big enough. Add a few tarps and a little dish soap for speed and the kids had a blast.
It is an extremely simple design. An 8″x8″ piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock. I stamped the images from Work of Art and Feel Goods with Pacific Point ink. The photo is layered onto a piece of Rose Red card stock.
Simple but fun. It brought back many memories of doing this at my aunts house. Now, she has a pool. The hill is gone. It was something the kids-little and big- enjoyed at one time.
The second challenge had to do with food. I wasn’t going to do this challenge. Then someone posted a scrapbook page using a Project Life app. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. So, I followed suit and used Simply Sent. It was an app Stampin’ Up! had to promote My Digital Studio.
The pasta dish is something I made at some point. The sandwich is from a restaurant near my family called Big G’s. They make the bread fresh every day, and that sandwich is as big as my lap!! I got four meals out of it! And of course being from Maine, I had to show some lobsters that we cooked one night for dinner. (I think I ate two of the three).
What will you challenge yourself to create today?
