LESSology #12 Photo Block Challenge

First – TGIF!!!!! Sitting here relaxing with a cold, dry wonderful white wine and feel like there is light in the tunnel. :) What a week. What a day! But it’s been good, I’ve made some huge progress work wise, I’m up to date with most of my tasks (except my thesis…) and there might be a national test for the 6th graders next year! YAY!

LESSology launched the Photo Block Challenge on Monday!

We have a fantastic sponsor, Scrapping Sports and More!

The challenge is simple – make a photo block and include an up cycled item and link it up HERE. And if you want some ideas about what a photo block might be – go check out the LESSology Blog – there are loads of inspiration!!!

Here is my take on the Photo Blocks challenge. I did a 2x2x2 block with photos from our summer vacation last year and a nice sentiment to go. Lots of green, such a happy color! Thought this would take us through the last month until next vacation...


As a base for my block, I used an old jewelry box. It was blue and a little thin, so I started with painting the corners with white gesso and cover it all with cardstock go get a sturdy structure.

Box 1

Box 2

Box 3

Hope to see you play!!!

Have a wonderful Friday!!!
