Guest Designer @ Child's Play Challenges

Hello, all!  I often describe my scrapbook style as "playful," so I'm pleased as punch to be guest designing for Child's Play Challenges this month.  I designed a page for their "Uno" challenge.  Since the game cards in Uno are red, blue, green, and gold, those are the colors I chose for my page.  I converted my photos to sepia, so that they would not compete with the "Uno colors."

Supplies: background paper from My Mind's Eye; starry paper from Bo Bunny; flashcards, rub-ons, large alphabet stickers, & round alphabet stickers from October Afternoon; black alphabet stickers from Doodlebug Design; ribbons from Scrapbook Fantasies; pens from Zig.

Our family does not have "classic" Uno, but we do have a Star Trek Uno set.  Therefore, I used a lot of outer space imagery in my layout.  I also used a lot of snowflake imagery, since our family mostly plays card games in the winter, when it's cold outside.


I had fun making my own Uno embellishments for this page.  I placed a selection of six cards on my table, photographed them all together (see below), and had the photo printed. 


I then cut out the cards from the photo and layered in them in a row below my the photo cluster on my layout.  They turned out very realistic-looking...so much so that my son, when he saw them, tried to get me to play an actual Uno game with him, using these miniature cards.  The game doesn't last very long when you only have six cards, though, as he soon discovered.  :)


Have I inspired you to play along with the Uno challenge?  You have until the end of the month to link up at Child's Play Challenges.
