DT challenge

I'm on a new Design Team for a local scrapbook store, Scrap the Lot, with Moira. My first challenge is a Basic Grey lunchpail album for the craft show in two weeks time. When the owner phoned to ask if I'd be able to do it in time she thought I'd only have a week to get it done because they didn't have the lunchpail in stock yet. But luckily it came in early so I have more time. But really I didn't need to worry cos I worked on it today and it's coming along so quickly! I'm really surprised. I'm using the Lollipop range of BG papers and the same simple embellishments throughout the album. It's amazing how much time it saves not having to choose supplies for each layout! I'm enjoying it a lot more than I expected. It's not what I had in mind. I wanted to use the Sweetpea BG range (soft colours) since my lunchpail is "Favourite Baby Photos" of Tassy. But they only had a few in stock. I really like the Lollipop range. I'm altering all the photos in Photoshop using the new brushes I downloaded last week - so loving that!
