Zeus & Zoe April Challenge - Life as it is now Mini Album - Video

Hi Everyone,
This month I am doing the April challenge on the Zeus and Zoe Blog!  I'd love to see some familiar faces join in with the fun, and there certainly are some fabulous prizes to win....
  
The main aim of scrapbooking is to turn out photographed memories, into stories that can be passed down through generations.  Often, those creating the stories of the photographs, are also the photographers, and more often than not, are not in many photographs themselves. I know I am one of those people, and even though I scrap about my childhood, I rarely scrap about myself as the person I am today and who I am.

The challenge this month will be to create and journal a project about 'life as it is now', the subject being 'you as an individual'.  There is much interpretation in the depth of how you can create, whether it is a canvas, a mini album, or a scrapbook page.  You can add as much detail as you wish, and about what topics you want to share about yourself - this is totally up to you.  Hidden journaling for personal information is fine - quite often I will write my journaling, add to an envelope and adhere this to the back of my project creation. 

There is one additional requirement for the challenge, and that is to incorporate the use of buttons into your creation.  Everyone has a button stash, and in our DT kits from Marivic were some truly amazing, vintage buttons I have been just itching to work with....

I have created a paper bag, mini album. The post was going to be extremely graphic intensive, so I created a video to show all of the album.  This project is a work in progress, and still has a fair way to go for completion.

I really hope that my mini album inspires others to take part in this months challenge....and be in the chance to win some fabulous prizes too!!
Have a creative week..
Sandie

 
 
The winner of April's challenge will receive a kit from Zeus and Zoe Etsy...The kit includes a package of flower, pin sticks, buttons, ephemera items, La Blanche Stamp, Washi tapes, A package of Magicals from Lindy Stamp Gang. Unfortunately NO Macaroons included...They're just there for decoration. This is what you will normally get as a part of a custom kit if you order from Zeus and Zoe.






Our main sponsor for May is kind enough to send some extra trim for a random winner this month..
The random winner will get trims from May Arts.
