Scrapping & Cards at the Crop

Last night was the 1st Crop at The Craft Room this month.  This month was slightly different in that just before I was about to go out the door DH said
'I have a challenge for you tonight.'
  When I asked what the challenge was I got this reply...
'I need a card that features a Water Park.'
Just something easy to create then!! LOL.  I asked why and was told that DH wanted to give a card to a friend who was going on holiday and wanted to give the kids a bit of spending money.

So once I got to the crop I said that I needed to create a card, for me creating cards can be difficult, I just don't know where to start.  Give me a piece of 12x12 paper and I can happily create a scrapbook page - I know how much space I have and can work out how much (or not) to put onto a layout.  But with cards for some reason I have problems with my spacial awareness - I don't have any!!!!  Cards just seem too small and I struggle with what to put on them.  I think this is why I am finding the Less is More challenges ideal - they help me focus the content.

After some head scratching and help from others at the crop I did create a card & here it is...

Once I had my challenge out of the way I was able to get back into my comfort zone and completed a Double Layout and a Single Layout from our Holiday in Denmark.  When writing the dates on the layout I could not believe that we visited Denmark in March 2010!!!

So here are the 3 pages...

All in all it was a very productive and enjoyable evening.
