My BOTCT week 2 entry. The challenge for week 2 was to create a layout inspired by a song. My team choose to be inspired by the music from the movie Grease. I decided to do an ode to Blue Moon ice cream. I used a bunch of different stuff from different kits - image is linked for list of credits.

BOTCT week 3 Entry. I absolutely LOVE this layout! I am so pleased with how it turned out! The challenge for this week is to Scrap by Numbers. We could only use items off our list - no more, no less. We used the following recipe:
10 papers
9 staples
8 buttons
7 leaves
6 felt pieces
5 doodles
4 strings
3 photos
2 word title
1 font
And once again I used so many different kits to create this layout that you'll have to check out the linked image to get the full credits :)
That's all I have today - I have a couple layouts I can't post until later this week....so check back then!

Battle of the Creative Teams!

So exciting news to share with you all!! I'm a Honey Bee!!!! After the 4 weeks of competing in the Scrap Orchard Creative Team Contest - the decision was made - and I was chosen to help represent Scrap Orchard! I am SO excited!

One of my first assignments with SO was to create a layout for a contest over at DSA - The Battle of the Creative Teams! I am working with 4 other amazing ladies on the Honey Bee Team - Mimi, Mariska, Susan and Carol. They are so talented! This week, our challenge was to create a white-space layout with a common color theme. We decided to go with a blue/brown color scheme using black and white photos. Here is my layout:
