Black Crater

The Challenge:
Use paperclips on your next project

Office supplies have been a very "in" trend.  There are a ton you can use and you can get them pretty cheap too.  They also make for good work or school layouts.  I used mine as clips should be used, to hold things together, but I saw a bunch of really clever used, including banners.  I got some great ideas from this challenge.

I had the opportunity to go to a crop with a bunch of peeps from CK's message board, including the Issue Challenge peep.  I took this layout as one of the things to work on there.  It was kind of funny because after I finished, I just chucked it over on her desk and said, "Here's my Issue Challenge layout!"  She liked it because you can see so much more detail in person and not from just a photo.  Photos really don't do your work justice most of the time.  You miss the dimension details and the texture.

The photos were from Kayla and Kyle's recent vacation where they decided to go on a hike.  They had no idea how long it was going to be and there was still a lot of snow on the ground.  There were unable to reach the top, but had a great time anyway.
