The first challenge was to use a favourite tool, a sketch, stash that is over a year old and to use either funny photos or have a funny title.
This was the Pagemaps sketch that she gave us to use -
I adapted it to use on a single page layout.
I used Basic Grey Two Scoops and chose dies and punches as my favourite tools. The photographs are of Vern and Rodger - two little friends that joined us earlier this year at Meadow Barn.
Lisa's second challenge was to use a piece of equipment that you have hardly or never used. Also to use 3 sheets of paper that you hate or dislike, use 4 or more photographs and use a favourite sketch to make a double layout. At first I thought what a horrible challenge but this ended up being one of my favourites this weekend.
I used a Sarah's Cards kit that I really didn't like, this happens rarely but these papers just weren't me and I have struggled to use them. They are Crate Paper 'Season'. The tool that I have barely used was one that I have never used - the iTop bradmaker. I won it in an online competition and have never used it so had a lot of fun making my own brads to co-ordinate with the layout. I don't have a favourite sketch but I loved a lot of Shimelle's 6x4 love classes especially the May class - I have tweaked it slightly and made my photographs a bit smaller so that I could use 6 instead of 5. Other supplies used are the Stampin' Up scalloped border punch and two different sets of AC Thickers.

Thank you Lisa for two lovely challenges!!
