Happy SONday to all!
I hope your weekend was fabulous :) After church I was lucky to have some time to squeeze in some time to make a trip to the farmer's market for some fresh veggies and fruits to stock up for the week!
Today's post is my very belated Calendar Girl post ::: oops! :::
This month, our hostess was Michelle and she gave us carte blanche'
to create as we wish with an "anything goes" with no stamped
images except sentiments!
I was absolutely sure what I was going to do this month
with making a scrap layout page, but it wasn't until I stumbled upon
this 15 minute creative challenge that it really came together!
Basically, the 15 Minute Challenge is to get creative in 15 minutes each day!
I know for me, lately, to put a card together takes HOURS. I rethink the entire thing over and over and end up using up more precious time than I really have!
There are 3 rules to follow - and they are simple ...
they are ones you set for yourself!!
My rules are:
1. I have to create something - anything - in 15 minutes or less.
2. I do not have to like what I make! I just have to be in a creative process and accomplish my goal - to create and see where my creative journey goes!
No second guessing, no changes, just set the timer and go, go, go!
3. I will be committed to the creative inspirations that land on the paper!
For my scrap page, I had this picture of my son on my craft desk
and didn't have time in my alloted 15 minutes to go grab a different one, lol.
So I reached for my scrap basket and literally pulled out a mish-mash of
papers from different companies and laid them down to the color sides
that matched the colors of his hat, shirt and baby blue eyes :)
He was the smiliest, happiest baby EVER and his baby books are literally filled with smiling baby photos but this one was taken when he turned around, totally spontaneous ...
which are my favorite kinds of pictures :)
I added a small sentiment in the corner because he is my "sweet love"!
