Welcome to April VSBN Challenge #1 – Variety A

They say “One is the Loneliest Number,” but see if you can win lots of “friends” for a favorite picture! You can use as many papers and embellishments as you want, but only one photo. Bonus points if you start with a sketch.

Gallery: VSBN17Apr

Have Fun!

Welcome to April VSBN Challenge #2 – Variety B

The Rule of 3 suggests that things that come in threes are funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things. For our next challenge, use groups of three around your layout (3 word title, clusters of three embellishments, 3 photos, etc.)

Have fun!

Welcome to April VSBN Challenge #5 - Music

Our music challenge in inspired by the children's classic song: The Ants Go Marching. There are so many fun ways you could interpret the lyrics, so don't forget to tell us what inspired you!

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one,
The little one stops to suck his thumb
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching two by two,
The little one stops to tie his shoe
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching three by three, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching three by three, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching three by three,
The little one stops to climb a tree
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching four by four, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching four by four, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching four by four,
The little one stops to shut the door
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching five by five, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching five by five, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching five by five,
The little one stops to take a dive
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching six by six, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching six by six, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching six by six,
The little one stops to pick up sticks
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching seven by seven,
The little one stops to pray to heaven
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching eight by eight,
The little one stops to shut the gate
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching nine by nine,
The little one stops to check the time
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching ten by ten,
The little one stops to say "THE END"
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!


And for your listening/viewing pleasure:

Have fun!

Here's my layout for challenge #3 - Stash Busters! Since my scanner wasn't working, I had to photograph my layout, so I apologize for the quality of the photo.

Fabulous theme, and challenges, Cheryl! Love the ant song! Still listening to it! LOL
For some reason, I can't see the inspiration photo, though. Maybe it is my iPad, I will try my laptop later.

I see the photo on my laptop! Cute! Cheryl, you have so much energy. I know once I get started, it will be great. But I just came off of a VSN week-end hostessing and making about 20 cards!

Sharon, I hear you! Just rest up and get your mental energy back before trying to plunge into a whole new set of challenges. Isn't it great we have the whole month to play along?

Great ideas for VSBN! The first one will be a huge challenge for me! ONE picture! Oh gosh, I'm gonna have to put on my thinking cap and force myself out of my boundaries since I tend to cram in as many as possible! Ha! Great push for me, Cheryl! But, the ant song will be stuck in my head all day! AAaahhhhhh! ��������

VSBN #3 - Meerkats JAI by AnniePanda - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
I used three rhinestones in a cluster to count as one bling, then 3 more individual brads. The base cs and one more are my two. Only have 5 patterned papers, some used multiple times. The one ribbon and 3 photos are obvious.

Here is mine for #1! I used your June sketch (second time in last couple of weeks) and I flipped it because of course my photo was wrong orientation!
Thank you Cheryl!

Sharon, you are a star and look forward to more of your LO's. I'm hoping to start Challenge #1. I have the photo printed and an idea....just about to see if I can find a sketch, otherwise I've "stolen" one from Pintrest

Happy Thursday

Did a double page spread, but used Challenge #5 for left side (on both pages, really) and Challenge #2 on right-sided page. Took only one pic since uploading takes longer than the pages some days! Ha!

Amy, did you draw those ants? Fabulous if you did! Or was it a stamp?

The ants would be unrecognizable if I drew them! Ha! That's why I collect so many stamps!
They are from the Lawn Fawn "Happy Summer" stamp set.

Here's my take on the Photo Inspiration challenge.
I used the #1 and butterfly together idea and added more butterflies for fun.

Busting through some VSBN pages today, with the dreaded page of only ONE picture the only one left for me to do. One is the loneliest number, you know...

Here's my stash buster #3 challenge:

Default Challenge #5

I have been making a few pages in this size for my Simple Stories album I want to give to Tiny Tot. The page protectors will have many of the 4x6 and smaller sizes for her to add photos as her mommy prints them for her, or I will send some because mommy rarely prints photos.
I wanted to have a few of these bigger sheets for her in the album before I mail the album to her, knowing I can send more pages later as well.
Here is the page of her first tieing her shoe.

Here is mine for #4 , the inspiration photo. I was inspired by the numbers and used paper with numbers on it. I have done them all now. Thank you Cheryl!

Default Friends in Colour having a Ball

Friends in Colour having a Ball by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Phew, at last...I made a 2 page LO. Here's the first page. It's of my son taking a friend to her Year 12 Ball in 2008. I thought I'd better cover up their faces as they may not be happy with me for sharing their photos on the net

It's a little too colourful and not how I intended it to be from the start but I'm in a mixed media play mood at present and decided I'd try some techniques out on my LO's. I'm sure my son will not realise how much time and techniques have gone into this LOL. I had fun and more importantly I made 2 pages...yay.

This page is for Challenge #1 - Variety A. I did have a sketch but ended up seeing a LO on the net and intended to follow that, but even that plan went awry.

Thanks for taking time to look. Happy day

Here's my take on the first challenge and my last to complete. Whew...I managed to make a page with only ONE picture. May never happen again...unless I get to feeling guilty that my other son doesn't have one of his own...grrrr. Ha!

Now off to make another page and one that is truly crammed with pictures to get my "self" back! Ha!

Ladies, I did change my LO's (slightly). I went over some of the darker colour spots with gesso, used baby wipes and its now softer.
I also went around all the papers and edges with my black gelato pen to give them some definition. Unfortunately I got some on the gesso and after rubbing it in, it went muddy in parts. Oops.... All fixed and a couple of embellishments added to cover up any muddy spots LOL. I'm learning
