Scraptoberfest challenge

Have you been following Karen and the girls blogging daily through October? Blogtober is going well and I can only aspire to a daily blog post - let's be honest some weeks I struggle to do a weekly post!  Anyway Gemma who is also taking part in this regular update of scrapping, challenges and life posted about a challenge the other day combining not one, not two, not three but FOUR challenges!

They involved;
Scrap our stash challenge - Create a layout using at least 2 different type of Washi Tapes.
Challenge YOUrself - Create a layout that includes YOU in the photo.
My scraps and more - Color Challenge
The memory nest - Sketch Challenge 

It so happens I had planned a page in my head that fitted perfectly with every challenge.  Happy days!

I'm working through a load of photos from a trip to Barcelona a couple of years ago, mostly in pocket pages but wanted a few 12 x 12 ones to mix it up a bit.  This is the first one and a favourite photo of me at Park Guell - a place I was so looking forward to visiting.



What's even more impressive is I finished this page in less than 1 1/2 hours - a record for me I think!

So if you're looking for a challenge within a challenge why don't you give this a try.  I'd love to see what you make :)

Thanks for following me with blogtober - it has certainly been challenging finding the time to blog every day but I have such a backlog of stuff to share, it is good to finally get it blogged. I've done this challenge too but won't be sharing till near the end of the month. Lovely photo and a super layout - well done on doing it so quickly too, I seem to have become really slow with my scrapping just lately.

Yes that would be a record for me too. I'm such a slow scrapper!

That's the most beautiful blue background..it seems a very "Barcelona" colour

Very clever to combine all four challenges in one. That's multi tasking perfection.

I've been totally out for a month, but I'm wading back in.
Maybe shooting for three posts a week and getting back to blog reading & commenting.
