ODBD February Scrapbook Challenge

Hi Everyone!!!  It's time for the February Our Daily Bread Designs Scrapbook Challenge.  We've had a little change to our challenge posting rotation.  I'll now be posting the challenge and my sample layout  here on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

For February we're having a recipe challenge.  Your challenge is to choose 3 ingredients from the recipe and use them on any size scrapbook page along with ODBD stamps. You may use more ingredients but you must use at least 3 from this recipe. Have fun mixing it up!

Recipe List:
Sewing (hand or machine)

For my layout I used the ODBD The Mighty Sea stamp set.  My ingredients from the recipe are bling, buttons, ribbon, twine and hand sewing.  The photos are of my son during a summer vacation to Myrtle Beach in July 2006.

I stamped the Mighty Sea image on cardstock using Memento ink, colored it with Pebbles Shimmer chalks and matted it with green patterned paper.  I stamped the scripture and sentiment stamps on shipping tags and colored them with distress and chalk inks.  I think the stamped images make great accents for any scrapbook page.  If you're never incorporated stamping on your scrapbook pages  you should give it a try.

  1. Gemiel, I just love your coloring here and how it matches the papers so beautifully on your great page. Wonderful use of the challenge too! Blessings,

  2. Hi Gemiel, What a beautiful page you created, you have some of the best photos. :)

  3. Hi Gemiel~

    This is a wonderful scrapbook page. It is beautiful, and your coloring is amazing! I love how well your coloring matches the background page. By the way, do you pronounce your name with a hard "G" or a soft "G"? I would love to know so that when I read your name, I know how to pronounce it. Thanks so much!
