The Summer Challenge Begins...

Hi everyone! I hope you're all okay and enjoying the week. I'm
so sorry I haven't blogged in over a month...I'm such a bad blogger
but, I've got something that should keep my blog updated and hopefully
get me some more followers! I broke up from school a week ago so I've had a
week off already but I've still got over 6 weeks left! I'm loving the holidays
so far but I've been quite bored so my mum came up with a summer challenge
for me to do. She'd been planning it for a while and when she eventually
told me about it, I was so happy! I've got 18 challenges that I'm going to do and
 blog every other day. The challenges are crafting, sewing, baking, drawing,
 reading, writing, it basically covers everything I love to do! I'm hoping
 that because I'll be blogging a few times a week, it will get me
more followers! Once I've completed a challenge, I make like a
scrapbook page on that challenge.
The first challenge was to make a journal cover. I made the
cover using some 12x12 papers out of my mum's stash, I wanted to
add a bit of texture and 3dness, if that's a word lol, so I took a scrap
of another piece of the same paper and cut around the flowers and
stuck them onto the ones that were already on the page. I added
a couple of embellies that I love the look of!
Overall, I'm really happy with how it turned out and I
can't wait to do some more challenges! So make sure
to check back every couple of days to see what I've done.
Thanks for visiting my blog, see you soon!
Love From Rebecca xx
