Time for another reveal with Team Trace over at Southern Girls Challenge. The challenge this time is to use dots and spots.
I created these on my layout in groups around the corners where my photos met the middle of my layout. To do this I used a variety of things so that their would be all different heights and textures. There are buttons, brads, enamel dots, pearl pens, stickles and drops of color shine.
The photos I chose were of our little one falling asleep in various places during our first vacation. He was/is a horrible sleeper, but on vacation he never slept so well!
I hope you enjoyed the layout, and that you’ll come link up with us over at the challenge. We can’t wait to see what dots and spots you come up with!

Scrapstuffz is teaming with Child’s Play Challenge this month, and we’re doing a sketch (by Laura Whitaker) and a picture challenge.
It took me a really long time to get my mojo on the sand art picture from Child’s Play Challenge. I thought of beach right away, but just finished our beach pictures last month. Then I thought about doing just the colors, but I really wanted more than that. As I thought and thought on it I kept coming back to the sand of time as a page theme. It finally hit me to do something of my hubby and I now (11 years later) than all the old pictures I tend to work on. We’ve stuck together through the sands of time.
I also used the sand thought to create layers like the different color sands. Each paper layer is on pop dots so there is a lot of height to the layout.
I also used my favorite color (green) on this layout in order to enter Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. Not only did it meet the challenge, but since the picture was taken outside green worked in that regard as well.
I’m also still undecided on if I need a title or if I’ll leave it as is. Thoughts on that?
I hope you’ll join us. Since it’s a collaborative month one layout gets you an entry to both challenges!
I was working on a bunch of spring themed cards for an exchange, and really liked the result of this friendship one.
I used my favorite color in the certainly celery Stampin’ Up paper so I could enter the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge. The card base is Doodlebug, the flower is K & Company and the sentiment from Close To My Heart.
I like how these shaped cards fold out into three pieces that all contain a writing area. I always enjoyed pen pals as a young person and still enjoy receiving a letter so these appealed to me right away.
I’d also like to enter this card into the Craftin Desert Divas and Sister Act Card Challenge anything goes challenges.
Thanks for joining me, and I’d love to see what you’ve been creating lately.
Welcome to my first reveal for the Southern Girls Challenge blog! I was so excited to get started and then read my first assignment…flowers…ugh. They are probably the one thing you will never see in any of my books, except for our wedding album. Flowers are just not something I’m good at working with. Always up for a challenge though, I got down to business, and am darn pleased with what I came up with!
DH and I will be married nine years this year, and can you believe I have not one wedding picture anywhere in our house! I decided with this challenge to rectify that. I got out my circle punch and got business cutting scalloped circles, inking, misting them, and making shaping into flowers. Yes, you read that right, I made the flowers for this project. Leave me a comment if you’d like me to do a video because they are super easy, and you get great results!
