OK my focus in scrapping for the next few weeks is going to be in Treasured Scrapbooking!
I was accepted into their yearly contest! YEA
and the Grand Prize is 250.00 in Scrapbooking supplies and a 50.00 GC!
WOW huh??
I am pretty excited just to have made it INTO the contest! It was only supposed to be 25 girls but they ended up with 32 I believe. Still I consider that a pretty good accomplishment!
And this is my FIRST entry! It is a 1 page LO with only ONE photo plus Felt and Scallops.
Overall I am happy with it.
It does suck though because I think since I usually post first my Layout gets old to people.

I think I need to start holding onto the Layout until the middle or end when people are posting already. I just can;t help it I get so damn excited! I am like a little kid when it comes to scrapbooking! No stress just FUN!

I tried melting Hambly on this LO I am not in love with Hambly, I think Hambly could replace my husband at this point! I ADORE IT!

Here is what I used and the Journaling. Now wish me luck and hope my LO doesn't get old to people before they vote!

Jenni Bowlin Shaped Paper
Brown MOD Circles Hambly screen printed transparency
Heidi Grace Cardstock alpha stickers
Heidi Swapp Clear Clocks
Heidi Swapp Brown Felt Embellishment Flowers
Inique Botique Felt Squares Memoirs
Vintage Lace Ribbon *found in sewing stash*
Vintage buttons *thanks grandma*
Teresa Collins Bling Ring
Prima Crystal Flowers
American Crafts ribbon (both styles are AC
The journaling says
Today I feel FREE….Today I can FLY!….Today is MINE!…TODAY TODAY TODAY!

Cristal, the layout is fabulous!

This will certainly see you through to the next stage.....it is fantastic. I do agree though, I think it is better to hold off towards the end of the deadline, simply because it will stay fresh in the judges minds.
