Who is up for a challenge?

Every now and again, I get into a scrapbooking slump. I drives me bonkers when all my pages begin to look the same to me. So, in order to remove myself from my comfort zone, which can be scary, I join a good ole' scrapbooking challenge. I find that this gets my creative juices flowing and forces me to think outside the box. I even believe that some of my best pages come out of these challenges. :) So, for those who are on the daring side and want to try something new, this challenge may just push you to new limits. :)

So, for this challenge, I would love to see you to create a layout with the following:

1. A base cardstock of black, white or personal favorite :)
2. Should be 8 1/2 x 11 or 6 x 12.
3. A bird on it.
4. Stitching on you page, hand or machine.
6. Paint on your layout. It doesn't matter how you use it but it must be there.
7. Use only 1 photo.
8. You MUST have fun!

You will have 1 week to create your layout. All you need to do is post me a link to your page in the comment section. The winner will be chosen on Thursday, October 16th. Here is what one very lucky person will win...

I was so inspired that I created my own page! I can never pass up a good challenge! :)

Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
