Challenge YOURself
is a blog that encourages us to create layouts
about ourselves.
Yep, that's us, scrapbookers who stay behind the camera and hardly ever
get into photos.
Since I've been joining in with their challenges I have been consciously making
more of an effort to get someone else to take the photos.
Having recently bought a new camera my old one was donated to DH who is now very snap happy
and taking some pretty good shot so expect lots more layouts with yours truly in them!!!
You have been warned!!!
So, onto Challenge#5
Something Trendy!
Put those scrapbooking trends to work on your page!  
Use a minimum of THREE trendy things on your layout. 
 List your items.  
Don't forget to include a photo of YOU in your layout.

Arrows, chevrons, cork, wooden shapes, chalkboard, vellum etc, all spring to mind
but what have I got in my stash that I can call trendy?

First and foremost I found a photo of me on our Florida travels last year.
We always play crazy golf on our road trips and after losing the first game, DD pleaded for a second
and guess what, she lost again - hee hee!

Flair, wooden shapes, puffy stickers, bling and arrows are all included on my layout
so I think that fits in with the trending theme
as does my very colourful background paper from Sassafrass.
Those cute ATC 2"x 2" Journal Cards are available from
Wearcrafts (a pack of 60 for a mere £4) as are the frames.
I love the Leeza Gibbons collection - not only is it so versatile, not just for pocket pages
but it is great value for money and goes a very long way...

May 5th is the closing date so get trending!
