It has been a while since I have made and shared digital scrapbook pages here on my blog.
So, why not share 4 layouts all at once today?
Pixels and Company is having a digital scrapbooking contest #cropped2014. Cropped is a competition based on the famous Food network TV show Chopped (which we watch all the time in our house)
Here are the layouts I have made so far for the competition. I love that I am scrapbooking so much again.
For round 1: SK Pumpkins : 10 ingredients challenge (with these mystery ingredients) : The only trick I used here was to create a shadow with the photo by duplicating the photo layer and masking part of it with a drop shadow.
For Round 2: SK Smile: Typography/Word art challenge (with these mystery ingredients): I loved this photo of the girls reading together, but it was completly out of focus. So I used it as the background instead.
For Round 3: SK Princess, a two pager: Photography/What you see challenge (with these mystery ingredients) : The story behind this layout- I am not a seamstress but I wanted to sew this princess dress for my daughter. The dress wasnt perfect and all I could see were the imperfections. But my daughter loved the dress and her smile was SO wide when she wore it. So, I stopped seeing the imperfections and saw just how happy I had made her. Truly, this whole world looks brand new when viewed together with a child.
For round 4: SK Sisters : Journaling Challenge (with these 4 mystery basket ingredients): This photo was so beautiful, it begged to be enlarged. That left no space for me to add the journaling. So, I created a zig zag.
Now I need to figure out what to make for Round 5. The mystery basket ingredients for this round are really unique. This one is a tough challenge. Wish me luck! 🙂
