Tea Party

I'm back with a new layout and this one is for January's Scrap Friend's challenge.  For those of you that have never seen it, they are four blogging buddies who host a monthly challenge.  Each poses their own separate challenge and you can make one layout, one for each, or if you are feeling super froggy you can make one layout that combines them all.  I decided to be super ambitious and jump right in and try THAT.  Details of the challenge, how I followed them and links to each is just below.

First up is the sketch Brenda shared.  As you can see I went my own way with it, but I did stick pretty close I think.  The biggest change was I went with only one photo and used the other spots for journaling and bigger embellishments.

Rochelle's challenge was one of my favorites.  A tic tac toe board!  I went up and down on the far left.  My title is made from corrugated cardboard that was painted white.  My arrows are along the top strip, far bottom strip and just to the right of the photo...all made from patterned paper.  The mist is harder to see, but if you click to enlarge my layout you should be able to see it.  I used green Glimmer Mist across the entire layout before adding my photo.  While it's hard to see in the pic (except maybe on the white piece just left of the photo), in person it adds an awesome shimmer.

Kelly's addition was a color challenge.  That was a little tougher, but I found one of my Echo Park lines a pretty close match.

Last up was the title challenge posed by Kristi.  She posted a word cloud with lots of New Years and Wintery words and asked that you use at least ONE in your title.  My title is "Tea Party Fun" so the word I picked is "FUN".  

Thanks for visiting!
