What Can We See Under the Sea?

I recently became a member of a fabulous group of amazingly talented fellow scrappers on Facebook. I'll admit, I feel quite intimidated by the sheer talent of these women!!  The main purpose of this group is to challenge your scrapping style by participating in, well, challenges.  These challenges are issued by either the Mojo Mama herself, or other members of the group.  And here are the results of my first challenge:
Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts, Bazzill); patterned paper (October Afternoon); letter stickers (American Crafts, My Mind's Eye, Making Memories); edge punches (EK Success, Martha Stewart Crafts); die cut machine (Silhouette, Sizzix); buckle die (Sizzix); spray ink (Studio Calico, October Afternoon); ink (Ranger); paper clip, string (craft supple); deco edge scissors (Provo Craft)

Kiwi Lane Templates: Tiny Wacky, Tiny Tags

Here was my challenge:
  • Use something nautical (I used my Silhouette to make the anchor)
  • 2 pages
  • 9 photos
  • blue, yellow, green and white for colors
  • use deco edge scissors (I made the yellow zig zag)
  • use a ribbon slide (I didn't have one in my stash, but I did have a die for ribbon buckles, so I made one really quick)
  • misting (I did yellow and blue on the background- took me 3 days to get enough courage to do it- misting scares me!)
  • hand journaling on a cloud shape (enter my trusty Kiwi Lane templates!)
This layout had a few things that were definitely a challenge and pushed me out of my box (misting!!) and a few things to help me remember to use my oldies, but goodies (deco edge scissors, ribbon slide die)- which I'm glad for!  Sometimes I find myself getting in creative ruts, and hopefully this group with help me push myself in new crafting directions!

So what do you think?  Did I meet my challenge?

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!

Would you consider leaving the name of the group? I'd love to see some of their challenges.
