20 Questions Scrap Style Swap!

Our Design Team over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge loves to chat and do private challenges together.  Our go getter, Lisa, keeps us in touch with each other with Questions of the Week and puts together challenges we can all participate in.

We have been working on a fun one (and HARD...thanks a lot, Lisa!) that we are ready to share with you!

Here is the hop order!  I encourage you to start over at the Counterfeit Kit Site to see the explanation of the hop.

So the 20 Questions that Lisa had us answer about our own style did not seem too hard.  I know what I like and don't like, right?

Here are the answers to my questions.  The hard part for me is that I am a "WHIM" scrapper...basically I just do whatever I like at the time.  LOL  I think I definitely have my own style though and this really helped to show what it is.

Want to see what I came up with?


TADA!  LOL  I actually had to redo this more than once.  I kept slipping back into my style.  I really like it, though.  Nice and clean.  I even got to use a project life card on it.  Way to use your supplies in different ways, Bethany!!  Whoop!  Whoop!

Now for my guess about which Master Forger I was copying?  That is hard!  Do I have to guess?  Really?  I think I am going to say LISA and if i am right, then I did not do her justice at ALL! (Might need to add a few more layers!)

Now hop on over to DAWN to see her take on the challenge.  And I would suggest you give it a try yourself?  

You could:
Swap with a friend (even an online one!) and create in their style
Pick a Master Forger to "copy"
Or just do our list straight up in your own style! 

Great challenge, Lisa!

Tina Campbell said...

Cool challenge and I just love the layouts

sassyscrapper said...

I can totally relate to your term "whim" scrapper. This was a hard, but fun and rewarding challenge.

Jimjams said...

Love the pages - but I wouldn't have said Lisa was short on shopping (especially with her recent DT work). Perhaps Stephanie?

Jimjams said...

Forgot to say you rocked her style - whoever she was!

Margie said...

It's so much fun seeing everyone's take on this challenge!

Stephanie said...

awesome pages Bethany - I love the cluster of photos on that first layout.

Julie J said...

I once sat opposite Lisa at a crop and I remember her inking EVERYTHING! so I don't think it's her. Whoever it is, you made a lovely page.

Lisa said...

Bethany! You did great. Both of these layouts are really lovely and you'd never know that the second one was hard for you. Looks very aural to me. So pretty and using the same products too (?). Great idea. Glad you had fun and sorry to say that no, you didn't have me!! Nice guess though with those layers!!
