Challenge #3

I'm ahead of the game, so I am posting this tonight instead of Monday morning as promised!

This week's challenge is number 10 "Finish a page in 30 minutes".  I didn't intened for this week's layout to go with a sketch challenge again, but well, it did...The challenge is from GYSO and it spoke to me and a new package of paper I had, so there ya have it!

In the book, Elizabeth writes "When your aim is to make efficient use of time, you must take advantage of premade products." She also says "To inject visual interest without a huge time investment, use a shaped background paper."

Well, I did both!  Normally, I am not a matchy, matchy product girl, but a friend (thanks Lisa) picked up this paper pack for me, and I absolutely love it!  The paper I used is from Fancy Pants, Kraft Kuts {That Boy}.  I also used Thickers, my faves, and the rubber star is from Love, Elsie (another fave).  By following the sketch and having products that went so well together, I was able to put this layout together in 30 minutes!!!

Your turn!!!  All you have to do is complete a layout in 30 minutes.  If you use a sketch, great, if not, then great, too!!  Please link your layout in a comment to this challenge or email it to me at scrappynatty@gmail.com.

Enjoy Everything,
