Guest Designer!

Friday, September 4, 2009

It is almost cybercrop time again at LSBS and I'm really looking forward to this one... the theme is 'all things blokey' which will be a real challenge 'cause I tend to use flowers and bling in most of my layouts. Well still have a week to think about it!
NewsFlash... Just had an email from Nic asking me if I would consider being the Guest Designer for this months Cybercrop.
Well, I was truly knocked off my chair at first but Nic convinced me that I could do it. Bit nervous, then started to dread putting up a challenge and not having anyone do it, sigh! Anyhow, all things blokey... hhhmmm what to do, what to do????
Decided to do a denim look background, but couldn't find any card stock that represented denim... went and raided wardrobe and found a pair of old jeans... perfect! Was even surprised that I could stamp on them and use rub-ons without any problems... yeh for denim!
So, my challenge to the troops at LSBS ended up being: Raid the blokey wardrobe and find something to use for the background of the layout eg. jeans, t-shirt, etc. Oh and to add just that little bit extra, I also asked that one embellishment be hand-made (my hand made imbellie is the "cowboy plaque".
Here is my sample layout pics.
