This week’s challenge at my LSS is a photo challenge.  Layouts have to have pictures no larger than 2″ X 3″ in size.

To make things more challenging for me personally, I don’t scrapbook so my photo has to be incorporated into a card. (okay, it doesn’t *have* to be a card but I’m not doing a scrapbook page and my smash book is neglected and difficult to photograph)

I knew what picture I was going to use and what stamp I “wanted” to use.  I thought about it on my lunch break today and wasn’t sure if the stamp was large enough for my vision.

After supper, I started rummaging through my stamps and my patterned paper and found everything I wanted to use.  I have to say that if it was on a larger scale and you threw in a little journalling, this would make a decent scrapbook page!

I used some Doodlebug Day to Day paper, a Paper Smooches stamp and sentiment and made a miniature “Polaroid” picture of my little buddy Jack. (sorry, Jill…maybe next time)

I inked the edges of all the papers because the card was a little too clean cut and I added some wooden stars that I coloured with copics and wink of stella glitter.

Easy, peasy, challenge accepted!
