20 minutes later, I opened my e-mail box to find an e-mail from Marci Lambert titled "a little birthday surprise." Surprise was definitely THE perfect title for that e-mail. I was totally surprised and beyond thrilled to open this e-mail and discover that Marci was inviting me to join the HMITM team!
I'm a big fan of challenges, and HMITM is probably my all-time favorite one. This challenge stretches my creativity. And they're often a HUGE challenge since I scrap 8 x 8, so it's hard to fit a lot of stuff on there. Plus, I get to use a lot of my stash! Here are a few of my layouts that have sprouted from these cool challenges:
Challenge #50: 20/20 - Use 20 different things and 20 of the same thing:
Challenge #47 - Title and/or journaling on a main photo. 4 patterned papers. 7 flowers.
Challenge #43 - Nothing New: 20 pieces of patterned paper, 20 ribbons, 20 embellishments (all have to be over 1 year old):
Challenge #45 - Would You Like to Buy a Vowel?: A - use a single piece of patterned paper. E - use eight types of embellishments. I - journal in the first person ("I am a person who..."). O - OMG! reveal something about yourself. U - yep, you are the subject of this layout:
Challenge #25 - Exactly 100 (aka Marci's EVIL challenge): Use exactly 100 things (excluding papers and photos):
