Random Chaos 44

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday to you!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine flew by, as usual.  We had our monthly Paper-Playground crop on Saturday, which was as fun as ever. Yet once again, I accomplished next to nothing.  Too much gabbing, too much eating….and then I got involved in a few games as well……you know how it goes, right?  But still, SO much fun.  Would love for you guys to join us some month, if you’re ever in the Raleigh area. Don’t know exactly where the rest of the weekend went.  All I did was blink.  I swear.

But the start of a new week means the opportunity for some new challenges, which is always a good thing in my book.  Hope you’ll join us for the Random Chaos challenge this week.  You are to use black and white photo(s), ribbon, and the color blue on a layout.  I used my January kit from Paper-Playground to make my page.


Winter Wishes, Hopes, and Dreams

Did this page about our hopes for actually getting some snow this year, for the first time in five years.  Every winter we hope, and every year we get disappointed.  We’ve learned not to trust in what the weathermen say or to get our hopes up too high.  Last Monday,we had snow in the forecast, but I really didn’t believe it would happen. It was actually on the warm side on Monday….in the 50’s I believe, and not a cloud in the sky.  I thought we were in for another disappointment.  Nik and I went outdoors to check things out, and it was truly hard to believe.  But miracles do happen, and we did get our snow.  6 inches of it, as a matter of fact, and two days off from school. Yippee!



I kept my page very soft and neutral in color, with just small touches of blue for a pop of color.  Layered the Autumn Leaves die-cut paper over some Melissa Frances, added several lines of simple journaling strips, and created a fun title split using a combination of the Making Memories tiny ledgers alphas with the Melissa Frances rub-ons that come in the kit.  For my main accent piece, I traced around the snowflake glimmer screen with pen, fancy cut the edges, and embellished with the Q&Co. gems and one of the Melissa Frances resin frames.  And of course I added the ribbon for the ribbon requirement. 😉  These kits are almost gone, but we do still have two left on the website for whoever would like to give one a good home!

Hope you all come play along.  Be sure to check out the blog and see what the other wonderful designers came up with.  And don’t forget the live chat on the Webster’s Pages blog, inspireME, tomorrow night at 9 pm EST.  You must be registered on the inspireME site to participate, so make sure you do that before tomorrow evening.  We will be talking about the new releases, giving away some prizes, and hopefully sharing some photos from CHA, as well.  Would love to see you all there!

  4. Audrey, I love the lo! Thanks for the idea I have those papers but not sure I would have thought to put them together! Now I am rethinking how I was going to use mine 🙂

  5. LOVE this layout Audrey, the black and white pictures are so powerful on the soft colors you chose for the page. And I love what you did with the little snowflake, I also checked out your PP tutorial and am going to put my snowflake to work the next couple of days! Hopefully some snow will come your way this week – we may get rain, snow, ice….everything except sun! I think the weather man is just making sure he doesn’t miss anything so he can’t get it wrong!

  6. Awesome page, I love the black and white photos and the softness of the whole layout! Wow – you got six inches, we only got a little over an inch and I am only an hour away from you! I am hoping we will get at least one more snow this year, I never believe the weatherman during any season, they are always off it seems. Think Snow!!

  7. i love this. i think the winter theme with that challenge is perfect. i think this might be one of my fave layouts of yours. i will be trying this, hopefully getting some pics the next few days with the snow we are getting, again! maybe you should come to my house to get some photos!
