Scraplift Challenge

The other day I was blog hopping and came upon The XOXO Challenge Blog. Every month their talented design team puts up layouts and the challenge is to scraplift one---or all---of them! The sponsor for this month is Candy Shoppe Designs. I have never participated before but when I saw the first inspiration layout by Lipstick Chick Emma Fronda I knew right away that I wanted to play!! I loved the bright colors of Emma's layout but I went a different direction and scrapped the photos (BAD AS THEY ARE) I took of Matt on his 14th Birthday this past Tuesday. He thought he was being funny by not smiling but I didn't care...NOBODY and NOTHING is stopping me from taking the annual birthday pictures! And yes, they will be scrapbooked!! I used papers and elements from an older Fancy Pants line "Like Father, Like Son". I wet the blue strip, crinkled it up and distressed and inked it a little bit then dried it with my heat gun, layered on a few more paper strips and stickers, embellished with Stickles, LilyBee rubons, screw and swirl brads, a flash card from Elle Studios, some ric rac, a K&Co journaling square and puffy letters from Recollections. I misted the background paper with a blue and a green (I put them away already so don't have the exact colors) Glimmer Mist before I began layering the page together. I like it!

it's always wonderful when folks find us and start playing right away! LOVE your take on it; i always love seeing our boys in layouts and yup, if they try to be cool and not smile, I agree to scrap it anyway!!! Hope you'll play with us every month from now on!
