Double Entry – PMDC 031 – Color Challenge & MDSM37

Nicole Watt and Kris Kilcoyne over at  Pixel Maven’s Retreat have a wonderful color challenge this week, featuring 3 great colors (Rich Razzleberry, Midnight Muse, & Crumb Cake).

PMDC-031

As you can tell by my most recent post on the addition of the Craft Studio, I am still without any physical paper to work with, so my entry this week will be totally digital.

Lacking in inspiration, I took a cue from Nicole and headed on over to MDS Monday, and found this great layout, for their MDSM37 Challenge!

Below is how I put both challenges together to feature a few great selfies my nephew Lakshman took of himself with my phone. We were having a great time, and he got a real kick out of reviewing the photos of himself after every click.

MDSM37

I can’t wait to see your take on both challenges.

Until Next Time… Happy Crafting!

Dynamic Duos Challenge No. 52

Dyanmic Duos is celebrating their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

In celebration this week’s challenge is to create a project using one of their PAST COLOUR COMBOS. I opted to use the color combo from DD#13 Early Espresso & Crumb Cake.

My all time favorite stamp is Definitely Decorative Avian Toile. It is truly elegant, and I have used it many times, but never for an easel card. This week I decided to combine all three, the color challenge, my favorite stamp and easel card. Below is what I came up with. Love the result!

I can’t wait to see your take on this challenge. Happy Anniversary to the Dynamic Duos Team, and thank you for your continued artistic inspiration!

Happy Crafting!
