Throwdown Scrapbook Layouts

Today, I am sharing the three layouts I submitted to the 2nd Annual Throwdown at Memorable Seasons.

The challenge for week 1 required a layout with clean lines centered and balanced. I submitted the following layout titled "Hollywood".

Hollywood
For my layout, I mat three photos in a row. Webster's patterns are so busy that it did not need much. Then I applied Prima and Maya Road flowers, the alphabet and that it is. So simple!!


Pictures show me during my honeymoon at Universal Studios California (2001). It was my second time working with Webster Pages patterned papers. I admit I was a little intimidate. I am keeping these beautiful papers for all my Universal Studios pictures.

For the 2nd week, the main ingredient was to use all patterned papers for the page including matting. To use a pinch of stitching and a dash of sparkle or bling somewhere on the page. Here is the layout, I submitted for the second week:


From The Top

My layout includes only patterned paper from Fancy Pants 'Hot Chocolate'. I combined this challenge with the sketch from Jen Gallagher at Two Peas. I stitched twine to the scallop border. The sparkle and glitter are included in the blue rhinestone snowflake and red glitter brad.

The current challenge at The Paper Variety requires to create a project using stitching. If you have some recent project with stitches, I strongly recommend to submit over there for the random prize of a beautiful October Afternoon kit.

Pictures show me enduring the cold at the top of Mount Pilatus (2003). A breathtaking view too, for sure.

For the 3rd week, the challenge was to have some white space, use misting, use a mask and doodling.

Play Everyday


For this one, I chose a sketch from Sketchabilities (sketch #40). My mask was a diecut from Lily bee Designs. I applied orange mist and then traced the border with orange marker and black pen (doodling). Supplies are from Fancy Pants "It's Your day". The chipboard pieces like the hearts and Every Day title are from Fancy Pants too but older collections. These are everyday pictures of my two son playing at the back yard.

Last Friday was the start of Week #4 challenge for total of seven challenges. Looking forward to more time to play at them!!!

If you have time to scrap this weekend, do not forget to check the "Use Your Stash" challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous (due on monday), and the fabulous sketches from Sketchabilities and Scrapbook Challenges. Lots of inspiration along the way!!!!

On the personal note, I am so happy this afternoon, we will have lunch with friends. And on sunday, we will go to another birthday party. It will be a busy but fun weekend for sure!

Wishing a wonderful weekend too!
