I have a Scrap Recipe challenge for you this week. I really, really love having a recipe to challenge myself while creating. I find that the recipe, even though most of the time I created it myself, pushes me to look at things in a different way. If I'm into clusters, maybe the recipe will make me step away from from for a while and create something linear and clean. If I'm into simple lines, maybe the recipe will inspire me to layer and group my embellishments! :)
Here's our recipe for today
A little bit limiting eh? :) That's the interesting and challenging part!
Here's my take on the recipe
Verdict? I adore this layout.
I use little patterned paper as it is, but when I have a recipe calling for no patterned paper, that is all I wanna slap onto this layout! :D I focused on the journaling, and made the alphabets chipboard the star of the layout. The Old Oak alphas are my personal favorite!
One brad - oh this was hard, because I love brads! It took me a while to decide on that 'No 1' brad from Public Library. The layout, afterall, is about Sam's first marathon :)
Laura gave the recipe a go as well. I absolutely adore her take on it!

"I am a huge fan of challenges like this, because it inspires a creative direction that I would normally never lean to. No patterned paper?! I can’t remember the last time I’ve made a page without. But here we have a page that I love, and would never have created without this fun challenge. Also, because I had less choices of product, I made this page in a personal record time. There was no time spent matching papers, and deliberating things. I just pulled out the supplies as directed and made them work. I had so much fun with this one, and encourage you to give a try too! Thanks Sasha!"
