Today is a very special day!!! Not only is it National Scrapbooking Day, but it is also the day of our very first Papertrey Pixie Challenge, which I just happen to be hostessing! I thought it would be only fitting to somewhat combine the two occasions so my sample for the challenge is a scrapbook page. My challenge to all of you who choose to accept it is this:
***Create your own patterned paper***
The base of my layout was created using a sheet of Guide Lines I Grid Sheets cardstock and the Butterfly Dreams stamp set. I chose the colors Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz and Aqua Mist based on this photograph of my daughter. The grid on the Guide Lines cardstock makes it *so* easy to line up your images! I simply stamped the butterflies in a repeating pattern until I had covered my page. I added some button accents to a few of the butterflies on the right of my page for some added interest. I *love* the way this page turned out!!!
Now I want to see your creations! Create your own patterned paper using stamps, punched images, scraps of other patterned papers - anything goes!!! You have the entire month of May to submit your challenge entries if you choose to participate. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in so invite your friends! If you upload to another site please use the keyword PTPC1 (Papertrey Pixies Challenge 1) in order to make it easier to find your submissions and leave you some love. If you are a Pixie please upload *here*, as well as your own personal blog if you desire. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!!!
