This challenge set by Shimelle during the Online Scrapbooking Weekend was ideal in getting me to create the second page of a double spread. I had made the first page at Debden back in March and as yet not shared this on my blog. Partly because I felt it was unfinished and also it needed another page to complete it. I have so many lovely colourful photographs from this amazing place. We went on a day trip while staying in Snowdonia National Park back in 2004. We had a great day despite dodging the frequent rain showers!

The challenge is called ' Grid It Up' and Shimelle said "Create a project with a grid as a design element! You can interpret that any way you wish! Get creative!"

This is the right hand page of the double page spread, I made in response to the challenge.

This is the right hand page made in March.

Here are the two pages together.

For the grid I used this sketch by Jana Eubank and flipped it round.

I used:
Patterned papers from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection - Vanilla chai, calming moon, mandarin slice, palace blue, African nectar, masala bella, honey bush and 2 x Madagascar mint. Lots of these were scraps from older projects.
American Crafts chipboard letter stickers in stroll (mint). These were distressed with sand paper, dabbed with chalk inks and then had a thin layer of glossy accents added over the top.
Punches - Martha Stewart, Woodware, Satmpin' Up
Cricut - George and Basic Shapes cartridge
Fancy Pants - Fancy Free rub-ons
A couple of molded embellishments from my stash.
8, 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" photos and 3, 4" x 6" photos.

Thanks for looking. The weekend is over but the 13 challenges are open until next weekend. I hope to snatch time to do a few more before then, but have a busy week ahead.
