A Very Speshal Dare!

We promised something special for this week's Dare and here it is:
This week we joined forces with the wonderful team of Scrapbookers over on the
Everyone is Speshal blog. We're daring each other and you to make a Really Romantic Scrapbook Layout - but on a card!

Scrapbookers are challenged to downsize your usual a 12x12 LO onto a teenyweeny one - maximum of 6x6, which can be sent safely through the mail. Cardmakers - you're used to working on a small space, and you know all about the ribbons, brads and other bits and bobs - but can you take on board all the other little touches that are used on a scrapbook page - the titles, the journalling, the photographs etc?

Is the Valentine's Card you make for your OH usually the last minute, hurried one you make when all your orders are done and you've stocked whatever sales outlets you have, or maybe you're a naughty naughty scrapbooker who actually goes out and - shock horror, BUYS your Loved One's card?


So after taking about 50 pictures of Jase, all of which were rejected by him, he finally allowed me to use one that he had taken of himself.... I have never made a scrapbook layout before so this was a bit of a challenge but all came together in the end :)




Square Card Blank, Printed words, Heart and Background, K-Ology papers, Heidi Swapp Chipboard letters and photo of Jase :)

The other gorgeous creations by the DCM girls are
here and the wonderful creations by the Speshal girls are here.

Right, Are you ready? Go Create! I Dare You!

It is hard to believe that this is your first scrap page. Cos it is awesome. I am afraid to say that your style fits very well with scrapping. Go on, come over to the scrap side!
