Two Birds, One Stone . . . or Layout!

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!!

Happy Scrappin'!!

OK this is really cute...I love the bright colors...just don't use them too much in my layouts...I'll have to rethink and add more color.

Andrea Green said...

Thanks, Vallarie!! Going to check out your blog now!!

Nice Job. Like Valerie, I don't use a lot of bright colors....heck I don't use much in the way of scrapbooking anymore. Just sold the house, so looking forward to getting a home soon and hoping for a new room I can call my own!! :-)

Oh, Patti, that would be nice! I miss my scrap room - I'm stuck in the basement now :-( But a nice cool spot to scrap in the summer so not too bad I suppose :-)
