Okay well we've been away for a VERY extended break - longer than anticipated and life is still throwing those curve balls at us!!! lol Some days I wonder if it ever stops! Because there doesn't seem to be a break in the rush of life right now we thought we should get back onto this even though we're sure that for most of you this has become a crazy time of year too. But like those who blog without obligation, this is a challenge blog without obligation - do it for fun, do it if you've got the time or inclination, otherwise let it slide til you do have time or motivation - just paper and glue gals so make sure it's for fun if you do it!
We're down a couple of contributors this fortnight but wow have Cass, Lusi and Alana sure made up for it with some great inspiration for you using tickets.
Lusi has done an amazing job with her "Thankful Book" incorporating airline tickets and other various tickets and a big thanks to Emily Falconbridge for being the source of Lusi's inspiration for this great idea, especially good for holidays or travels.
Cass has created this gorgeous layout with the simplicity of an "admit one" ticket - if you are a real hoarder you may have these from shows, carnivals, flea markets etc, or you can get them from most newsagencies if you absolutely have to have them! They make a funky addition to your layouts, especially kids/teens or sporting events.
Alana has used a show ticket which she has then used correction tape to cover the words and dymo labelling over that. If you like the idea of using tickets but feel they won't fit into your layout, colour scheme etc then this is a great way to incorporate them without making it as obvious but it all still counts!
Our very best wishes go to our lovely friend Jilly - thinking of you as you enjoy your extended stay in the Republic of The Couch! The champers is still chilling for you babe!
We will be putting up a slideshow from our last challenge shortly and deciding on a winner.
At the moment we're going to leave this challenge open-ended as we come up to Christmas as so many people are busy, planning holidays, juggling children etc so we know that time is precious in terms of your scrapping. Depending on response we'll give it two weeks to see how everyone is going - that's the Tuesday before Christmas - 18th December but nothing hard and fast here - we'll all see how we go. Email your layouts/projects to us via the link in the sidebar or link to your blog in the comments section and we'll get them up on a slide once we have a few in.
Thank you for sticking around during what's been a crazy time for a lot of us and I suspect a lot of you as well! We hope to be back full force with plenty of guest Garbage in the New Year and remember that if you have a suggestion for a theme for Everyday Garbage then we'd love to hear that too! If we choose your theme then you get to be the guest garbage girl for that fortnight.
Take care and take it easy in the run up to the holidays - we're looking forward to seeing everyone's fab ticket work!
