You may now be wondering what all this has to do with a challenge? Well ... since joining blogland I have met (digitally of course) a lovely lady who just so happens to live in Spain and blogs from HERE. I love the conversational tone of her blog and how she is so down to earth. I also enjoy seeing the challenges that Alison uncovers. And recently there was one that grabbed my attention. It was a challenge set by Scrap Friendzy for a summer camp they are having. At the time I was only reading blogs via my iPhone and I couldn't access the original challenge as it was on a forum, so I ran with what Alison had posted. The challenge was to scrap inspired by a s'more!!! Now I LOVE s'mores and we can't get Graham Crackers over here unless we spend $12 on a box (outrageous!!!) and so I was inspired (and hungry after thinking about s'mores)!!!
To make S'mores you will need:
Graham Crackers (texture) ... twine, fabric, pearls and doily (I would also include the stamping as texture)
Chocolate (2 shades of brown) ... hessian paper and pale brown fabric strip
Marshmallows (something white, and something round) * can be 2 different items ... white doily and while polka dot paper
and last but not least something to toast them on! (something to stick your marshmallows on and toast) ... I failed with this one as I couldn't find anything that suited!
I scrapped an older photo of myself in Indonesia using the Simple Stories Summer Fresh range (I love this one!). I had lots of fun with this challenge even if I didn't really follow it. But it got me thinking and crafting and that is a great combination :-) I didn't journal like I normally do as there are still a pile of photos of this one day and there is really only so much to say.
I am very happy with the way this layout turned out. Thank you Alison for sharing with us the challenges you find. Her layout features 6 photos and is lovely. Alison also managed to find something for each part of her s'mores, unlike my stick-less untoasted marshmallow!
