Time to Take Up A Challenge or 2!!!

We have found that when you get busy designing for a business add lots of creative workshops and kits into the mix - there comes a time when you get a bit 'dazed' and can easily loose your 'mojo'. 

So to help re-energise ourselves, we decided to start 'stalking' a few of the great challenge blogs out there in 'blog land' and share our efforts with you.

This week we were inspired by the the fab blog called White with 1.  What a great name - so catchy!

What got us immediately was the May challenge criteria ...ooooh Orange, White and Scallops.  Now both of us have a great stash of orange (one of our all time fav colours) and the whole criteria felt so 'uncomplicated' - just what we needed to get the mojo moving.

Check out Miss Lisa's (aka Lisa Greedy) finished masterpiece below.

You have gotta love the way she has used the buttons to form the heart shapes... so much going on, but in her ever perfect style - it has just the right balance. (Hey don't tell her, but I am feeling a scraplift' coming on)... oh that's right she reads the blog... oh well look for it in my album Lisa!!!

I loved what Miss Lisa did at our recent 'Keeping Mum Workshop' with the resist papers from Pink Paislee, so I couldn't pass up a chance to play with my stash of these, along with my new favourite Tim Holtz distress Ink ...mmmmm you guessed it Orange!!  Just love how it worked  out on the resist paper and gave me an all over orange background to work with.

We both had forgotten how much we love challenges ... we loved raiding our stash to find bits and pieces ... it was 'cathartic' and well... sometimes it just takes someone else to help you get the 'mojo' moving again.  Thanks to White With 1... we had a great hour creating these last weekend.  We are looking forward to what they challenge us with in June!

Hope you pop on over and check out the blog it really has some great entries posted in the May Challenge... they alone would have been enough to inspire us!!!

Be back soon...
