My First Scrapbook Challenge

I have entered my very first scrapbooking challenge. My local scrapbook store runs one every month. The May Challenge was to use Class-A-Peels Stickers on a layout. I paid five dollars and got to pick 3 pieces of cardstock and one set of stickers. I chose a Magenta Style Peel Off's. I think that the stickers mimic the moss look. I coloured them with my new Copics. We'll have to see who wins.

Coat Rack

It is very difficult to find a coat rack these days. Even Ikea didn't have a reasonably priced one. I then had to set my mind to work. What would be useful? What would be cheap? What would be unique and creative?

This is what I came up with. It was a broken down step ladder in the basement. I brouhgt it up, gave it a coat of paint, and put it to use. I like it. It is yet another platform to display my purses, it has a spot for mail, I can put my current purse on the platform, I can hang keys and coats, and the shoes fit perfectly underneath it.And best of all I recycled!

Copics

I went to a Copic class at my local scrapbook store. I was skeptical at first and not sure I liked them or not. Above is the card I made. We got 3 Sketch markers at the course. Which was all the collector in me needed. I thouhgt about it for a week. Then I went for it and have started a Copic Collection.
It may be small but it has a lot of potential. Please stay tuned for some great projects featuring my Copic Collection.
