Last Monday (11th July), saw the opening night of the July CC at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia. The theme is 'Lights, Camera, Action', so all the challenges are based on the film industry.
So far, I have managed to complete 3/5 challenges, I missed the deadline for the Opening Night Mini Challenge (it was due by Midnight Sunday), but I have an idea for the last challenge, so Im hoping to get into the scrap room, and play soon.
Challenge 1 - The spotlight's on you Baby!
For this challenge, we had to scrap a layout of ourselves, and if we were game to share a secret about ourselves.
I used an awesome Hambly transparency and sewed it onto layout - I'm not the best sewer, but I think it turned out ok.
Challenge 3 - Action!
Sue's challenge was to scrap an action type photo, and to include the word action, either in the title or the journaling. I chose to scrap a photo I managed to capture of Benji when he rolled over for the first time - it doesn't look like he's moving, but that's just because of when the photo was taken he was on his side about to roll onto his tummy. He went the 'wrong' way, and rolled from back to tummy long before he ever rolled from his tummy to his back (he hated tummy time).
Challenge 4 - I'm ready for my closeup.
This challenge required at least a 5x7 photo, and it had to be a close up of the face (shoulders were ok). I used a photo I took of Benji only a couple of days before hand - I loved it the minute I saw it, and it was perfect for the challenge.
I kept the embellishing really simple (even for me), as I wanted the photo to be the standout.
