tina and i (stephanie) will be hosting the blog this week and we'd talk a little bit about pregnancy (with plenty of non-pregnancy stuff thrown in).
shocking, i know...considering we are both pregnant right now. tina is expecting a sweet little boy this fall, and i am expecting two little girls right around the same time.♡
we were chatting about different things we could do this week, and both of us have noticed that sometimes people comment about wanting to be able to scrap their ultrasound photos.
we know that not all of you have children, or that many of you may not even still have your ultrasound photos, but we still thought that this would be a fun, unique challenge.
at the bottom of the post are some alternative challenges from tina. hopefully one will work for you!
i have scrapped a couple of my ultrasound photos of the girls so far. i did not use the actual original photos, i scanned them and printed them on photo paper.
since the photos are black and white...your design options are endless!
here is the very first one i did, using the documentary collection:
and here is a more recent layout i did, using the summer camp kit
and here is tina's interpretation of the challenge!
isn't she amazing? ;)
(items used: Elementary Collection, Star punch & vintage papers)
we so hope you will play along this week!
Post to your Studio Calico Gallery and link your layouts to the thread I have started in on the message board.
The winner will be chosen randomly from all eligible entries. I will draw a winner on Sunday morning, and the prize will be a five dollar gift certificate to the shop.
oh, one more thing...i have noticed several ultrasound layouts in the past week or so. if you have a layout you've done within the past few weeks, go ahead and enter it in the contest!
edited to add: if you can't do this challenge, feel free to come up with your own creative substitution. we'd love for everyone to be able to participate.
a few ideas from tina:
This challenge can be taken in many directions.
A year ago, I would probably do a page about where I was at during my struggle. It always helped to get those feelings down on paper and I didn't always post those layouts either. Those were for me and my sanity.
Those of you who don't have children can take any 3 layouts and use it as a sketch.
Maybe scrap about what you see in your future....an ultrasound of things to come.
Try scrapping just a black & white photo.
There are really so many ways to interpret this challenge. Please don't feel like you can't participate. We want everyone to enjoy our weekly challenges!
I (stephanie) was thinking and I also came up with some alternatives. You could scrap a photo you've always wanted to scrap but never got around to (that's how i look at my ultrasounds from my first two pregnancies!!). Or perhaps your thoughts/emotions from your pregnancy.
Be sure to post your link here so we don't miss your creative layouts!
We can't wait to see what you do!
