Challenge #5 for the Fresh Face Contest was a fun one. The theme of this week was: 'The Diet'. A strict diet where a lot of things were not allowed. No patterned paper, no stickers, no ready made chipboard and in moderation we we allowed to use: bling, rhinestones, brads and buttons. A great challenge. One of my points of criticism in todays scrapbooking is that there's a visible trend of putting as much supplies (read money) on your layouts as possible. First of all: The majority of the scrapbookers don't have the money to spend on such amount of supplies. And second: There's a huge stash of supplies lying around that we still need to use (Ever thought of the fact that we call the Christmas line of patterned paper from last year 'old'???) So this was a fun challenge.
