margaret_loves A Challenge started March 11, 2012.

Margaret was inspired by a post by Modern MC, who made a scene by randomly choosing a piece of scrapbook paper. Simply a miniature challenge inspired by a sheet of scrapbook/patterned paper chosen either at random, by someone else, or something with a pattern/style out of your personal taste/comfort zone. The paper itself should become a major feature in the final room, such as wallpaper or flooring.
