New Layouts

"My Kristin" was made for an example of March Let's Scrap Challenge as well as Week One of the Make The Most of Your Scraps Challenge on 2 Scrappy Chix Designs. I used March 2009 PageMaps for the design and I have to say, I like how this one turned out. These were pics from our Twilight Premiere Party but I wanted to scrap them with a theme of my relationship with my niece verses about the movie. Besides, I've scrapped so many with the movie as the theme since I have an entire Twilight album devoted to my Cullen addiction. Anyhoo, I used my new Black Magic cardstock that I won from the Crop Your heart Out Online Crop at 2ScrappyChix.
I just finished making {8}. I have only two pictures of my 15yo's 8th birthday and one of them is not even worth scrapping. This picture also was bad because of the dark, black area that developed on the left side. I tried to cover it up the best I could with the florals and 3-D stickers. I didn't want to crop the picture since I was only making a single photo layout. I designed the patterned paper to be a birthday cake and topped it with eight small candle punches. I wanted more dimension so I folded the corner and another spot and stapled. I added the stitching line in the torn areas to tie back in with the stitched ribbon on the center of the cake ;) I'm sure I'll find a challenge or two to submit this in.

I also have a small Toot. My "Heavenly Breeze" layout was chosen as the Layout Of The Week on Treasured Scrapbooking and is displayed on their home page. If you click on the title to this post, you will see it featured.

Hope you are having a wonderful week! Tomorrow is Friday so TGIF!!
