February's Designer Challenge

Postby Sharmaine » Feb 16th, '16, 8:49 pm

Up on the Cocoa Daisy blog is the new challenge for February.
http://www.cocoadaisy.com/blog/monthly-challenge/23126/dont-forget-your-furbaby/

Hopefully it will inspire you to create something about a pet. Yours, a child's, even an imaginary one. Be inspired to capture a little of today with your furry/non furry friend.
Load your gallery link in this forum post or on the one over on the blog.
Winner will be announced on the 10th of March.

Thanks for the inspiration Sharmaine.
As soon as you mentioned your idea for this challenge, I know I would play along.
I rarely scrap about Poppy.

Here is my LO using the DITL Kit.

I loved this challenge Sharmaine - thank you! I mostly used the February kits, but the cat stamp and the circle stamp are from previous kits. I love the thin washi from the BYOAO.

You still have until March 1st to play along with this challenge! :)

I don't have a pet of my own, but I added a little story about my Mom's dog Chelsea, to one of my PL pages.

I wrote a long story in the gallery. After thinking about the topic for a long time, I chose my eldest plushies for this challenge.
Thank you! Without having to come up with a creative idea I would have never scrapbooked this. And now I really like that he will have this page in his album.

this is a very basic 6x8 LO with my old cat Li. I am just starting to learn how to make LOs so this is one of my firsts. My planner pages do tend to turn out a bit scrappy so I thought I'd give it a go! If someone has any good, preferably fast (as I have two wildlings at home) tips, tricks and advice I'm willing to take it!

Ps there is going to be some journaling on the other side.

Almost forgot to share this layout for the Designer Challenge... these are photos of our dog Chester who loved water. He was our son's dog, we had him since 2002 until he passed away in August of last year from bone cancer. Stubborn as all get out, but loved, loved, loved his boy. We all miss him a LOT!

Love all the inspiration here! You can bet I will be lifting them. Since our household is all about the pug, I HAD to participate too especially with the adorable doggie stamp set. Not sure why the background (white cardstock) showed up so splotchy though. TFL!
