Pink Elephant Scrapbooking Challenge #1


The Pink Elephant Challenge now offers scrapbooking challenges! I'm so excited to see these challenges because I've loved their card challenges since the start and so this is one more way to play along. The first challenge is to show them your favorite technique. My favorite thing to put on any LO is handwritten journaling, but I also did many of my other favorite things on this LO like adding rub ons, a Thickers title, and keeping it clean and simple. I use elements from many different manufacturer's. We R Memory Keepers background pp, A Scarlet's Letter scrap and some rub-ons from Basic Grey, as well as some GCD Studios epoxy stickers.


This LO features some photos from a summer morning hike at Merrill Creek. It was really early but also really gorgeous. It was beautiful to see the reservoir lake change so much as the sun came up. These photos are shot in color so if you look closely you can see the green of the tress in the top photo but the scene and surrounding colors were so muted that morning that they appear to be black and white.
