  • February 2017 Just Art Challenge

    ALOHA!!! Guess where I've been ... yes, Hawaii ... again. Folks who know me know that I go to Hawaii at least once a year. This year, while planning our trip for September (my daughter's 40th birthday present), my husband decided he needed to go now. He was getting tired of the cloudy, cold days and all the rain we've been getting ... so I looked to see what I could find. We typically rent houses and doing this last minute isn't always easy. However, I just happened to find one on the Big Island where someone had cancelled their reservation at the last minute and I was more than happy to help out.

    What's this have to do with anything??? I've been accused of chasing the sun and I will always own up to it. I even used that as a theme for one of my collections which is now retired. While scratching my head, trying to think of a challenge, I had an aha moment. How about a theme of Chasing the Sun???

    Your challenge this month is to create a page with the theme Chasing the Sun. I've gone thru my retired collection and created a sampler for you to download (see the registered members area) however, you don't have to use it. I also want to say, you can also chase the sun in cold regions as well as tropical, so there's a lot you can do with this theme.

    Here's the layout I created using a photo taken while we were on Maui a couple of years back.



    When you're done, please be sure to post your works of art in the CHALLENGE GALLERY and post them in this thread with a link back to your page in the gallery. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

    HUGS!!!

          Living on the west coast makes it easy to hope over to Hawaii ... the flight time is slightly less than when we go back to Virginia to visit my son ... the only problem is decided which one to do ... jk

              Mahalo Jill! I love a chance to scrapbook Hawaii. We have heaps of sun in Queensland but I'm a bit tired of the heat here this summer. Thanks for the sampler too.

              Same here, Evelyn!! I even went to Robyn to see if she had any news on Jill. I was chewing fingernails with worry. I knew she had gone to Hawaii, but totally forgot!! HAY JILL-----Do you know that you are LOVED????????

              And I am going to go back through the archives and find that kit. I sure had fun with you on that one!! (If that's the one you are talking about!!)

                btw -- if anyone is interested in purchasing the kit, pieces, or the entire collection (I've had a couple of requests), I've uploaded it to my personal store under Blast from the Past -- https://goo.gl/0iSDLo. Since it's a retired collection, I put it at 75% off.

                  that darn snow ... LOL!!! This winter is definitely not a drought one ... and if we were any other state, we'd be "out of the drought" ... however, California will always be in a drought despite the amount of rain ... just not a "severe" drought.

                Always a lot of sun in the Caribbean, although our last two vacations saw some rain - unusual for winter

                  We always seem to get some rain ... but it never really last very long ... except one time when we went in November. But, tropical climates do have their winters too. These are STUNNING photos.

                Thanks for the challenge... I used 2 of your papers (masked) and a bunch of your elements. I also used pieces of 9 other kits.
