Blog Party Day 3, Betterscrap and a winner......

The challenge this week at Better Living through Scrapbooking
October Challenge #1
"Favorite Color Challenge"
Create a layout dedicated to your favorite color. Choose at least two of the following:
1. Journal on the layout as if you are speaking directly to your favorite color, and tell it why you love it, and what it means to you.
2. Take a photo of something you love that in your favorite color, and use it on your layout.
3. Use rounded corners somewhere on your layout.
4. Create hand-doodling somewhere on your page.
5. Make the name of your favorite color a prominent part of your title.
I am so in love with the color yellow! This was a no brainer for is my dedication to "YELLOW"

Criteria I chose to use on this layout include:
I journaled to my favorite color, yellow, as if I were speaking directly to it, I told her why I love her and just what she means to me. I also chose to add some rounded corners with the floral paper. I used some hand doodling with a stencil and I included YELLOW in my title. I must say this is a challenge that I LOVE, it has inspired me to scrap more of my favorites to include in my book of me!!!

Discount Cardstock Sunflower 80# 12 x 12, Plaid Stylish stencil, Plaid Apricot acrylic paint, pop dots by Plaid, Mod Podge Sparkle (inside the heart, on the butterfly and flowers), Gauche Alchemy (stamp and foil ribbon), We R Memory Keepers floral paper, Die Cuts with a View Nana's Nursery (plaid paper), CTMH yellow heart paper, All Night Media splatter stamp, Sakura White Jelly Roll Pen, CTMH orange pen, Prima (blooms and alphabet), Misc. buttons, twine, ribbon, butterfly.

Techniques I used are to paint the All Night Media stamp with Apricot paint and stamp directly onto the page with ink. I love this!!!! I also chose to not ink the edges of my pages, but rather paint them with a sponge. This gave such a fun soft effect! I also used the sparkle Mod Podge to paint the inside of my heart and add just a touch of bling to the butterfly and flower. Did you notice my ribbon flowers? Those are just leftover pieces of ribbon that have been folded lengthwise, crisscrossed, and attached with a brad.

And now for the winner of my blog hop at Betterscrap. I used to choose the winner......

  1. Good Morning! First the answer to the question is I would do a layout with the kit, but I also would like to tell you how much I have enjoyed the blog hop. I am so happy I just happened to find your blog. I love your work! Your page on the colour yellow is amazing, all your work is. Thanks for the chance at the blog candy.

  2. Love the yellow page, it is my favorite also. Yummy embellishments also.
    Boy you are a busy girl today.

  3. OH I really love the yellow one so bright and cheerful.. just Beautiful..
    Hugs Linda

  4. I like yellow too, so cheery and bright. My favorite is blue though, used to be red, extreme difference huh? LOL!

    I love this kit! I would use it all up doing a mini for this Halloween, and layouts for C's books!!!!!

  5. Super cute layout! I love the colors! I have yet to adventure out in the mini album making so that would be something fun to try with this great collection!

  8. fun yellow page!!! hmmm I'd probably make pages but a mini sounds fun too!!!!

  9. hmm, I don't know. Maybe. I've only ever made one mini-album, and it was a gift. It's not something I make very often.

  10. I love, love, love that yellow page. Just gorgeous. As for what I would make with the kit???? Hmm, I guess LO's. I do both LO's and mini's but I tend to do more LO's.

  11. Gorgeous! Did you see that you are the blog hop winner on my blog from last week? Congratulations!!

  12. They are both wonderful creations.. I am just loving the spider paper.. so in the mood for Halloween already.

  13. YELLOW is my Fave color too. It's so bright and cheery. Love your page. Hmmmm I'd probably make a mini album. Trying to get into doing more of these.
