Friendly Challenge - Photo.

Last year my dear crafty friend Sue celebrated her 60th birthday with a big party, 
I attended with another couple of scrappy gals and whilst there we had our photo taken together.
Of course with us all being scrapbookers a challenge was inevitable!
I got each of us a 5x7' copy of the lovely photo as I thought that we don't often scrap with the larger size and that would add to the challenge.
Then when we got together on a Saturday crop and we all scrapped the photo so that we could see each others take on the challenge (and I could get some photo's to share with you!).

Here is the gorgeous photo we had taken. From the left - Helen, Birthday Girl Sue, Jackie and lastly on the right lil ole me! 
Look at those smiles!

Here is the page I created using the photo and we all decided on the title of Celebrate too.
All sorts of lovely things on my page as it's all about the us girls dressed up and ready to Party!

Gotta have a doily and fussy cut flowers. 

I tried to arrange the cotton that I tied onto my tag into a heart shape - a bit on the wonk but I think the general shape is there!

I even managed some stitching and STAMPING on my layout!

On to the other layouts and Birthday Girl Sue's gorgeous page using some very pretty patterned papers behind the photo, lots of hearts for our lovely friendship and a smattering of buttons.

Helen's layout, she picked out the limes and purples from the photo for the colour scheme of her page. Some creative stitching, pretty purple flowers and a doily for the feminine touches!

Jackie also used a lime/purple colour scheme but with a kraft background. She got creative with Zentangle doodles, fussy cut flowers and stamping.

Why not get together with your crafty friends and challenge yourselves too. It's great fun to see everyone's take on a photo or sketch, each of you will have your own style so no two layouts will be the same!

Thanks so much for dropping by.

  1. I love to see how different each of you scrapped that photo. Love it. That is my favourite size photo to scrap on a single page layout.

  2. Love the variety of pages for the same photo. Did you all agree on the title, or is it coincidence that they are all the same?

  3. How fun to see all the variations - each one a perfect delight.

  4. How much fun is this! I can't help but smile when I look at that fantastic photo and everyone's work! Thanks for sharing with us! Happy Birthday Sue! You look marvelous!

  5. Love what you and your friends did!! Gorgeous picture and all fabulous layouts!!
