I accept your challenge my dear SIS!

Lately I have been finding it hard to do any scrapbooking. Life at our house is busy with J approaching 10 weeks and M is his busy, busy, busy 2 year old self. M is in need of constant attention and I am trying hard to nurture that in an effort to stop the 2 year old rebellious behaviours that he has been exhibiting since the arrival of J. Last week was successful and we are currently on a 4 day stretch of Mommy not getting hit. YAY!

So my Sister posted a challenge on her blog yesterday that was really neat. It involved using 3 supplies and 3 techniques to do a layout. The supplies were pearls, waxy flax (which is waxy string) , and felt. The techniques were random stamping, no distressing and paint. So I am not a random stamp kind of girl on my scrapbook pages, and like my sister I like to distress things. And don't even get me started on the paint. I am a patterned paper FANATIC and I find it hard to move out of my comfort zone BUT I really wanted to do this because it would make me not think too much. Or so I thought. I was awake for 2 hours last night thinking about how I could participate. Thanks Sam!

So without further adieu, my layout:

It took longer than I anticipated because I think way to much but it was fun to step outside of my comfort zone.

I also completed this one yesterday. It only took 3 days....again busy household and babies come first.

Thanks for looking and check out Sam's Challenge at
Enjoy your weekend!
