1 Hour Challenges


I LOVE them!!! But they leave me wanting more!!

Ali over at Embellished hosts random 1 hour challenges & well, I can't resist.

She's on Australian time - so it can be a bit tricky at times...but with my broken toe its all good - I'm here & always ready :o)

Yesterday at 3pm (her 1pm) she set the challenge...ordinarily I would be picking Tai up for pre-school but my wonderful sis is doing that for me until I'm ready to drive again.

So here's yesterday's effort.

The deal is you have 1 hour from go to whoa...you don't have time to think...Ali will let you know if a challenge is coming up (usually Wednesdays & Sundays) so you can choose a pic. Then wait for the challenge to start.

Yesterday we had to use BLUE, but other than that - you have to have a title, pic & journalling then you just go & create & then have it uploaded to the gallery by cut-off.

The great thing is I don't have time to cut things out so I get to use my stash instead of saving it for "someday" & I really love the freedom that gives me.

And you'd be surprized how much you can achieve in an hour. There's stitching, inking & painting on this LO. I'm working on making my LOs a bit more embellished..starting with my next on LOL!!!

Well, time to take Taigy to swimming. Later.

Love the layout. Isn't it amazing how an hour can make ya motor. I found a few weeks ago the shorter it took me to do a layout the more I loved it.

Love the one hour challenge idea. Quite honestly a layout some people spend 3-4 hours on often isn't any better than something you could do in a hour. And you get to stress less!
