Trying something different...

Hi there!  Today is a blah day for me.  Our family has been dealing with some stress, so I thought I'd mosey over to a few new blog challenges and see if I could be inspired to cheer up.  So, I found this challenge over at Scrap and Stamp Saturday.  They wanted a scrapbook page about where you craft and had to include chipboard.  Well, my problem is there's no color ink left in my printer.  So I had to go black and white.  That was the inspiration for the colors of the page.  I used the sketch for Lili of the Valley as my plan.  Fortunately, Charisma Cardz challenge is "Scrap it," this week too!  Truly Scrumptious said anything but a card and ABC's is circles.  And finally, the challenge over at Simon Says is "back to school." While I don't have anything to do with school, per se, the background paper, as well as the colors, can be associated with school...a stretch??  I tried ;) So this is my creation.  I tried to use things in my stash I haven't used before.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and seeing my first (posted) scrapbook page! Please ignore the quality of the pictures...I'm still working from my cell phone!
