Scrapbookit - Everyday Eclectic

Hi Everybody, 
Welcome to the weekend, time to amp up the crafting mojo and get your craft on.

This month I was sent a wonderful design team kit full of the new Echo Park Everyday Eclectic range. This range is very cool, it can easily can go in a few different directions, from cute through to  to arty. The amount of superb stickers you get on the 12 x 12 sticker sheet is excellent, it should go without saying but I loved the letter stickers too (and as you can see even all combined together they look pretty good).

I was asked to set the challenge this month and immediately came up with the following criteria. 
  • Twine
  • Hexagons 
  • A quote
At the time I thought, yep nice one Rebecca, good challenge. I still stand by that good challenge statement, however I did not anticipate it would cause me to pause over my papers studying them for nearly an hour. I admit to struggling with getting this one started, once it began though it evolved into a fun colourful fun page. For those of you lucky enough to have a Cricut you will be very pleased to know the Accent Essentials cartridge has a choice of hexagons which you can use. 

Now the photos used were taken at the Jelly Belly Factory in California. I have always loved Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, I have never hidden this fact. It was one of my USA trip highlights to visit the factory and enjoy all the yummy samples. I have to admit as a visitor my husband and I may have been on the rather old side of the age group, none the less LOVED every minute of it.  

 I am very much looking forward to seeing all your challenge creations!!

Please e-mail them through to Jo at Scrapbookit by the 14th September.
