Up for a challenge?

People...I actually scrapped. It's been like 2 weeks and dang it felt good. I love to participate in challenges because I find it's a great spring board for creativity and stretches my skills. I made this layout for 2 challenges you can find over at 2 peas. I used some Basic Grey Granola papers and AC thickers I got from a RAK on the Simple blog. Did I tell you how much I heart Simple?The first one is a weekly ad challenge hosted on the Pub message board by the awesome Paula Gilarde. She posts an ad, and you use it as inspiration for a page. Here is the ad for this week.Fun huh? The second challenge is called How Much Is Too Much? This challenge is posted every 2 weeks on this blog by some very talented scrappers and is designed to help us all use up our ginormous stashes. This time the challenge was to use 9 circles on your page for '09. I'm always inspired by these. Give them a try...they'll get your mojo flowin!
