NSD challenges with Shimelle ...

I love this time of year when National Scrapbooking Day (or in my case International Scrapbooking Day) rolls around. There is just so much inspiration available on blogs and websites all over the world – free downloads, crops, challenges and project material - it is very hard to make a decision on what exactly to do for this special day.

This year I decided not to cyber crop as such but to paricipate on a few set challenges that appealed to me with Shimelle rather than spread myself  far and wide.  I took her advice and used a set of co-ordinating papers (Lemonade by Basic Gray) plus a couple of ring-in's from my scrap stash.

Scrapbooking Day Challenge 1: Use patterned paper for your page background.

Scrapbooking Day Challenge 2: Create a triangle.

Scrapbooking Day Challenge 3:  Add a border between two photos.

Scrapbooking Day Challenge 4: Scrap a photo that needs an explantion.

Scrapbooking Day Challenge 5: Try a photo edit.

A little photoshop magic and hey presto .....
