I recently applied for a couple of design teams. Now, I accepted a position over at
I was checking out the forum and the galleries of other members...

Well, I was inspired to try to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone.

I don't k=normally create using purple. Not sure why but I don't. I have purchased beautiful paper and never touched it...until now!

So after checking out my Pinterest boards I had decided to use one of my pins for inspiration.

I found this to be such a great inspirational piece. If you click on the picture a link will take you to the original source.I used the picture to form my illustration on the dictionary page I used to be the background to my layout.

I had wanted to be able to add this layout to several challenges on the DADR forum. I used brads and decided to cluster them to add some bling and character ~ Challenge #1

I used an old dictionary page and some Christmas bulb hangers. Unique recycling options ~ Challenge #2

I used a scrap piece of pink lace ribbon on my layout to accent the photo - imagine that - a photo on a layout I created... crazy idea! Lace used on a project ~ Challenge #3

Ribbon had been laced through the border I had punched with my new punch I bought on clearance - yay! Two border punches now - hope to add more... Punch used for border ~ Challenge #4

Personal Challenge to Self ~ Step away from my comfort zone... Success! I love how this worked out.
