Scrapbook Boutique - June challenge

I don't think I've mentioned Scrapbook Boutique on my blog before but for a very long time they have been my 'go to' scrapbooking store for all my die cutting needs. I mean like for years. For a long time now though they've been branching out into more and more products and my bank balance has, over time, consequently become more and more depleted. Admittedly the reins have been pulled in, in recent times, as we save for things like a tradie to lay our designer wallpaper, a concreter to do our sideway, a new/updated front garden, flair buttons and wood veneers. LOL!!!

Scrapbook Boutique has a great inspiration challenge they put up on the 10th of each month. Why is it great? Because the winner is chosen by a random generator so everybody has a chance to win, regardless of their skill level or personal style. Cool huh? I've not entered the challenge in the past because it seems to attract mostly card makers, but I really liked the colours in the inspiration photo this month and I thought to myself "well you know, why not?". So I did and I'm ever so happy that I did!

You can find all the details of Scrapbook Boutique's current challenge HERE but keep in mind two things. Even though the challenge doesn't go up until the 10th of each month, you still only have until the end of the month to complete your challenge. Further, this month there was a problem with the original challenge post on the blog so to upload your challenge entry you need to go to THIS BLOG POST! Have I confused you enough yet? LOL! Good luck!!!!    :)

PS: This is a great challenge for card makers .. there's always so much inspiration to be found amongst the many and varied entries.
