Put Down Your Coffee...

...cos your in for a shock... here comes post number 2 for the day! OMG!!!

Now that we have all picked ourselves up off the floor, I would love to share with you my *entries* (yes we had to do two layouts this week! Eek!) for Round 9 of So You Think You Can Scrap.

First up is the Photo Focus challenge. The idea behind this one was to use a 10 x 8 inch photo, together with a title and journalling, to create a simple layout i.e. the focus was to remain on the photo rather than on other distracting embellishments. Funnily enough, although doing very little should be easy, I actually found it a struggle to hold back on the embellishing. Generally I go to town when it comes to embellishing... I kinda enjoy it and I love the busy, well-adorned look. I am still itching to add to this page, but because everyone keeps telling me... "Just leave it alone!!!" I shall exhibit some self-control and leave it. Enough rambling from me I think, here it is;

The second of the two challenges was to create a layout based however loosely upon Sketch #81 over at Pencil Lines.

Here's the sketch;

Here's my take;

Well that's it for today... I promise! And don't go expecting two posts in one day again anytime soon... I doubt very much it'll happen again for some time! LOL!
