Crop Chocolate Online Crop Challenges

Here is a quick recap of the challenges that I was able to complete for Crop Chocolates online crop. Challenge #1 was to use this ad as inspiration.

I have so many pictures from the wedding reception of people dancing. I thought this would be a good way to get a lot of pictures on one page. So this is the first of many dancing pages!

Challenge #3 was to make an easel card. This was my first easel card! I am not that happy with it. But I will have to try again at a later date. I used Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses and BG Alpha stamps.

Challenge #2 was in 2 parts. First we were given a menu with 3 courses and an optional dessert. Each item was assigned a certain element that needed to be present in our layout. We had to pick our meal without knowing what each element was though! My meal was a cheeseburger (purple!), cheese sticks (star), garden salad (bling), and of course I chose dessert, triple chocolate cake (rub ons)! This was my favorite challenge! It was fun not knowing what we were going to get! The paper is all Stampin' UP. I used Star Dust and Eucalyptus stickles and the rub on is from the Basic Grey Two Scoops collection.

Challenge #7 was to incorporate weaving in your project. I decided to make an anniversary card for my husband. I have never done paper weaving before either. It was a lot more difficult than I thought it was going to be! But I think it turned out all right. I used Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection for the papers and brad. I embossed the card base with a cuttlebug folder and then inked it. The birds are from the Joys of the Season cricut cartridge.
