1 Layout- 2 Challenges-Yay me!


Using my supplies from the September Vintage (2nd release) kit over at  WIOIN , I created this layout for the Candy Shoppe Designs SUPER Sweet 16 Blog Hop Challenge.  In addition to the other requirements (you gotta go to CSD there for them plus read my previous post), you had to pick a base, edge papers and photo, layer, use ribbon/trim, 3 flowers in a strategic area, 3 other embells (I used more), title, journaling etc.... I had envisioned something entirely different that wasn't quite so boring but...but I am still struggling with adding titles to my layouts; they look "weird" but I shall keep trying!

I went to Mandy's house yesterday and it felt great with a capital "G"- food, fun (thank you Trace-E), and new friends (YOU SCRAP GALS ROCKED -hhahahhaaa -get it??) and I actually received 2 tutorials-One in layering (thank you HeatherB-despite the fact that you are a Steelers fan, YOU RAWK!!)  and one in sewing on a layout (-kisses to MandyK) and yeah, I NEED a sewing machine....Forgot to take a group pic so I leave you with Mizz Heather's lesson for me....
