Sunday, after the soccer game, was a lot of overseeing two projects - my daughter's continued work on her Ed Fair project and my son's work on some cake pops for his book report. Because of that I missed my first assignment in the May LOAD challenges. :( So I'm bummed I missed an opportunity for a goodie box, but I will scrapbook this month if I have to do it from the back of my car!!!
A new month means a new Guest Designer. Welcome, Wendi Robinson. Here you'll see what Wendi worked up with the Sassafras Lass Ellie's Tale line fro the Smaller than a Breadbox kit. Love that she gave us a close up of some her detail . . .take a look.
Here's some tips from Wendi: "One technique that I focused on my page is about highlighting shapes and making them stand out:
- First and foremost, I inked my square page in black, to add some depth and pop to the edges.
- Next, I focused on the half circle from the Sassafras paper. I used my sewing machine to add some circles in between the lines, to add more depth to the circle itself.
- Last, I cut out triangles and made them into a banner. To make the triangles stand out, I used my sharpie pen and doodled triangles within the banner, and then also used the sewing machine to add a banner top.

Okay, so I started this post around noon - it is now 9:06 pm so any challenge I was going to give you is going to have to wait - sorry 'bout that. Will I even be able to get LOAD Challenge #2 done? I don't know, we'll see.
