May Challenge

Graduates by Stephanie

Design Team Member Stephanie submitted this layout for the May "Get Out of Your Box" Challenge. Here is her description:

"When I thought about what was outside the box for me, I couldn't really think of what my box is when it comes to scrapping. Then I realized my box is WAY bigger than scrapping, it applies to my everyday life. I'm a procrastinator. I never do anything in a timely manner. So, when I realized this I knew that it meant I had to scrap something the week it happened. So, I did. I graduated from college last weekend and quickly responded by ordering my photos, finding some green and orange/copper paper, and sitting down at my craft desk. I set forth with a "git 'er done" attitude and conquered my task with timeliness. I also used all designer papers (SEI Winnie's Walls), inks (Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and embellishments (American Crafts' Thickers) AND borrowed the general layout from one of Laurie's Christmas pages which is all pretty out of the box for me.

Now it's your turn. What box are you in? What can you create if you "get out of your box". It's just this once! Send us a picture and description of your creation so we can publish it here. You will also become elligible to be chosen for the Guest Design Team. So get out of that box - and get creative! See all the details below in May Challenge.
