Well apparently I am really into challenging myself these days and have found and joined a few more scrap happy sites! Was feeling in a bit of a rut with my scrapbooking so I am really enjoying the inspiration I'm getting from these sites and the AMAZING peeps there. There is definately something to be said for the sisterhood of scrapbookers/crafters!!!
Now the best part is I was able to combine two challenges into one layout! I took on my first "Case" over at C.S.I. - Case File #67 (What a super cool idea for a challenge site, to "solve" the case you following the scheme, evidence, testimony, etc.!!) - and here is the sketch they provided:
And the "Scheme":
You have to use the five colours and then draw inspiration from the photo, using elements in it. Here is my "Case File" - hoping I "Solved" it :-)
I was also able to use this layout for the current Use Your Stuff #80 challenge - using a song title or part of lyrics as your title. This was easy to do with this pic of my son, Tyler - the kid talks non-stop!! So right away the title "Yakety Yak" came to mind! Ever since starting pre-school he is just a sponge for information and he feels it's his duty to educate the rest of us I think! Oh, and don't try to tell him he got any of his facts wrong - he takes after his Daddy here, always has to be right!! Silly boys, they just don't get it ;-) tee hee!
Here are a few close ups of the layouts details:
Thanks for stopping by my scrap happy place, be sure to leave me some love so I know you were here and can follow you if I don't already!!
