So, I made it to Week 2 of the scrap contest
over at Scrap 4 Life.
This week the challenge is to to create a layout that has prominent use of some kind of clear element in the design—transparencies, ghost letters, acrylic items, ...
So here is my layout...
Used: Bazzill CS
OScraps Digital kit "In This Moment" by A Neal. (the teal graph paper was printed on a transparency)
The butterflies were created using a brush from http://dead-brushes.deviantart.com/ -- then printed on a transparency and cut out -- and adhered with staples.
Title letters are by Basic Grey -- colored with black sharpie.
Lace from Jo-Anns
Few pieces of PP -- KI Memories and Gin-x
So the photos are of Lukas
The top one was taken the day he was brought home from the hospital.. I think around 4 days old... March 05. The bottom one was taken recently.
So, whatcha think?
There's a LOT of great talent in this contest, so I wouldn't be surprised if I was bumped off this week. Either way.. it's made me happy to create 2 layouts that I really like. Plus Scrap 4 Life is a super friendly site... so it's all good!

They are having a 4 week contest and each week we are to complete the a challenge posted. This week it's all about using Sparkle...
SO this is what I came up with. Jacob at his first t-Ball game. Used scraps for my patterned paper (Daisy D's, MME, Sandy Lion), AC thickers for my title, rhinestones to form the star.. MM glitter on a chipboard strip by Lil Davis.. and few other little things.
I'll find out Monday if I continue to the next round.
