ScrapMojo, BOM & Tagged…

WARNING: long post… Lot’s of stuff!

It’s been a while, but I made a lay out for ScrapMojo again.
There’s been some changes on that challenge blog and from now on
they’re doing only one challenge a month instead of the 2 they normally did.
This gives you longer to do them, which I am happy with ’cause I usually love
their challenges, but I can hardly find time to make all the lay outs I want
– or have to make – in one or two weeks!

Anyway, this is challenge #36
Desperate times call for desperate measures. We have all been through some
tough times or seen someone close to us struggle. We challenge you to make
a page about how the economy has affected you. Tell us your views or maybe
how you have survived these tough times. The second part of your challenge
is to use something square or something recycled.”

The first thing I thought about, reading this, were my shoes…
I have quite a few pair of shoes, but last year a lot of them got tattered,

No FUN at all!

After my last “Wonderland” lay out, I had troubles to start another one.
I wondered through the house, looked at my photo’s, looked for my mojo,
did something else (cleaned the kitchen!) looked at my photo’s again and finally started a lay out with the Word Up #45 “Fun” (OLW challenge).
It turned out to be NO FUN at ALL!!!
Worked a few hours on it, and it became more and more ugly. It’s gone now! Threw it away! (after ripping of the, already glued, alphabet to re-use)
Sorry guys, but it was way to ugly to show – or even tell more – about that one.
Let’s forget OLW this time!

So, looking for fun on the Internet then, I came along Jessica’s blog and there 
she wrote this:

“So, I tagged Lisa for the 6th pic in the 6th folder thingy and she left me this comment today “Now I dare you to go back and show us the 6th layout you ever made… that should be fun!! 😉 ” ….great idea… right..
Wanna play… Find the pic of the 6th layout… and post it… c’mon and leave me a link so I can see it… can’t be any uglier than mine!

OK, I was in for some fun so I looked up my first album and started
counting the pages….
