challenge : use pop dots

Happy Monday, all!! Joy Madison and I are hosting the blog this week. It's my first time, and I'm excited to share a little inspiration with you. =)

When I started to think of a challenge for this week, I still had Emily's texture challenge in the back of my mind. Which brought me to one of my favorite scrap addictions as of late - foam adhesive. I went the longest time without using it, and now I find myself reaching for pop dots every time a page needs a little extra oomph.

I love them under punched shapes :

I love them under photos :

I love them under stamped images :

and I love them under stickers and small embellishments :

I'm not the only one that loves them - here's a cute example from Emily Pitts :

and one from Kelly Noel :


(but i can't show you the whole page - it will be in her gallery with the november reveal!)

So - my challenge for this week - break out the foam adhesive. Add a little dimension with some pop dots. Make a page, make a card, make whatever strikes you - then post your links to the thread on the message board. The challenge will end on Saturday night, midnight MST. The random winner gets a $5 gift card to use at Studio Calico, any way you'd like! I'm hoping to join you in this challenge and make a new pop dotted project - it'll be posted later this week. Happy scrapping!
