Because of you....

Good Morning,
Better Living Through Scrapbooking Challenge #2

This week’s challenge is to create a page layout about the most influential person in your life.

Chose a person, living or dead, whether you know them personally or not, that has had a big influence on your life, and create a layout about them. This person can be a friend, relative, historical figure, celebrity – anyone at all.

Choose at least 2 of the following:
* The photo must be black & white. If you don’t have a black & white version, change the photo to black & white in your favorite photo editing software, or take the photo to your local 1-hour photo and have them do it for you. You can also make a black & white copy of the photo at your local office store. If you do not have a photo of the person (if they are a historical figure or celebrity) find one on the internet and print it out.
* Use at least one major circular element on your page – whether it’s the photo, photo mat, or other noticeable circular element.
* Use paint or ink in a fun and unusual way.
* Hand make your own flowers and use them on the layout.
* Include hand written journaling

And here is my reveal....
I chose a black and white photo of my Mom and I at the beach, a handmade rose (love how it came out), hand written journaling, and a large circle element.
All the papers, ink, and stamps for this one are CTMH. The bling is Prima and Kaiser, the ribbon is from my stash.
You must visit the Better Scrap Girls to read about who has influenced them. While there, leave them some scrappy love!!!!

Deadline to enter Challenge #2 (and all other August challenges, including challenge #1) is midnight EST August 31st, 2010.
