Inspiration Station - Challenging each other!

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here to let you in on how I've been inspired lately which in turn will hopefully inspire you!! I recently participated in Scrapbook & Cards Today's Crop & Create Cornwall event. As this was out of province, just a few of our scrappy group were able to make it. However, while we were there, thanks to modern technology, we were able to communicate quite easily with scrappy friends from home. With this in mind, LCOM's very own Jocelyne Roy messaged us during the weekend to see if we'd like to do a one-hour challenge while we were cropping - she would send us a sketch, and we'd get one hour to get our scrap on and get it done. Doing these types of challenges often at LCOM crops, we knew how fun these are and how amazing it is to finish a layout in one hour. So, that's exactly what we did - not once, but TWICE! Now, for Jocelyne, designing two layouts in one hour is a common occurence (Crazy, I know! Hee!Hee!), but for me and the others, we had to do two separate one-hour challenges to get these done (although Cécile did get one done in 30 minutes! WOW!). Here are my two designs:

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. The first sketch was one by Becky Fleck and the second, by Jocelyne herself. So that 's it! Get together with some scrappy friends, physically or via your favourite social media, and challenge yourselves - may it be a one-hour challenge like this, or using particular items on your designs, or even designing something using a particular collection. Make it fun! And guess what!? You just might see one of these challenges pop up one of these days on the LCOM Facebook page right here. Wouldn't it be fun to all scrap together at the same time? YAHOO!

'Til then, happy scrapping!

Nothing like a one hour challenge to get your mojo flowing. So happy I could be a part of your weekend. Love both your layouts!
