With Time to Spare!

I made it! I finished my layouts for this Round of SYTYCS... and I did it with a day to spare! I might not be able to call myself the slowest scrapper in the world anymore b/c it seems I'm getting a whole lot quicker! YAY!

For the first of the two SYTYCS challenges, the Lift It genre, we were asked to scraplift a member of the Scraptacular Design Team. I chose to scraplift Kim Nutley. Her gorgeous LO Addicted just screamed for me to lift because it's off centre, bright, and well-embellished. Here's my take;


















I stuck very closely to Kim's design, but moved the title further upwards than in the original, left off the journalling strips, and added a few extra embellishments.

Next up is my entry for the Music to My Ears genre;


















I chose to use the black, white, grey, and yellow colour scheme of the George album cover. I was also inspired by the basic design of the cover (a large central block embellished along one side), and the use of white space.

Before I go I'd like to share a super cute pic of my DD, which I took on Halloween (this one's just for you Mel!!!);


















If you have been living under a rock for however many years and are not familiar with The Wiggles, DD was dressed as Captain Feathersword, the friendly pirate. I also put a cut throat tattoo on her neck during dinner with friends that night, which you can see here, too. Ain't she just the cutest?!

Good luck with this round :).

Your new LO's for the comp are divine sweetie and I agree with your Mum, the title on the first one is too cool.
