More old photos

I asked my mom if I could take these photos home because I wanted to scrap them. These are my grandparents that ended up getting divorced.

I encorporated the color scheme (kind of) from challenge #81 at Color Combos Galore and I also used over 25 stickers to go with the Stickermania challenge at HMITM.

Yay :)

Well, we just got back from FL Thursday morning and I finally calmed down enough to get online and blog surf this afternoon. I was almost through the list of blogs I look at daily when I came across this:

I'm so excited and surprised :)

Oh, and I took lots of photos, so whenever I manage to print them, I'll have plenty to scrapbook.

I combined two challenges for this one too. One Little Word's Word Up #31 was If and The Design Experiment's Challenge #18 was to do a layout about your senior year of high school.

The journalling reads: If I could go back and redo my senior year of high school, I think I would. I would stop worrying so much about losing one friend and focus on the ones I had left. I spend more time making ME happy. Most importantly, I would have more fun. But if everything really does happen for a reason, I wouldn't go back, because I wouldn't want anything to be different right now.

Girls in their summer clothes

Got another layout done using old photos. I used the Pencil Lines sketch 93 and the title is from the song "Girls in their summer clothes" for Challenge #45 at Scrapping the Music. It's pretty simple, but I kind of like it. I couldn't find any other papers I liked that went with the photos, so I ended up with that one.

New Layout

No sketches or challenges this time. I just got some pictures from my mom and wanted to scrap the pictures of my niece's 7th birthday. I can't believe how old she's getting. But yeah, I'm really liking this page. I'm not TOO entirely sure of the zebra-like paper behind the main photo but overall I like the page :)

Oh, and you can see the "seven" better in real life.

Scrapjacking Candimandi

This is the first time I've participated over at Scrapjacked. They jacked Candimandi and I liked the way she used the duct tape on her layout. I couldn't find any duct tape in the house so I used masking tape. Most people went for the more soft, dulled down colors, but I went for bright. I think I like the way it turned out.

Biker Chick

I'm so proud of this layout. I've been trying to scrap these photos forever and Color Combo Challenge #78 was just the inspiration I needed. These colors worked great. And since I was already doing one challenge, I figured why not try three? So I used the Pencil Lines sketch #91 and I used two different borders to go along with Challenge #21 at Scrap Your Crap. I love the way it came out :)
