This layout is for the Splitcoaststampers Digital Scrapbooking Day Celebration Challenge which started last week. The LO covers Challenge #4 & #6. The deadline is tomorrow night, Nov 11th around 11pm so I have 2 more challenges to do before then. These layouts will also count towards my November goal of 8 pages...now I only have 3 more so I should be done tomorrow too!
The left page is for Challenge #4 from Wendy B (SCS Wendella247) & was to use colors from our country's flag (some scrappers are from other countries). We were also directed to Kristins Scrap Design for a free digi LO design from 2011. I'm a traditional scrapper so I just followed the LO. I didn't have any patriotic photos but since baseball is called America's pastime I decided to use that as my subject. I found the background paper in my stash which tied into the patriotic, red, white & blue theme. The white 8X8 center is matted in SU Brilliant Blue then stamped with matching blue stars then I sponged over it with SU Real Red. I'm really not sure what to call the other image I stamped in Real Red. I wrote the year on the jewelry tag & looped it over the baseball brad in the upper right of the photo. There's a bat & ball sticker at the bottom right of the photo. I was inspired by the title from Wendy's LO so when I stamped the title I alternated the colors & then cut them out.
The right page is Challenge #6 & also from Wendy B (SCS Wendella247). We were give an option to either use a design from a past challenge by Patti"s (SCS princessp1971) or Sally (SCS showmestamper). Because of the # of photos, I decided to use Sally's challenge #38. I wanted to co-ordinate this LO with challenge #4 (remember I'm a 2 page girl) so I matted the photos. Sally used a torn piece across the center so I stamped & sponged it to matched the left page. I have a lot of pictures printed & ready to go so it took me all week to decide which to use on which challenge. Once I did it went pretty quickly & I'm so glad I'm using things from my stash! I'm sorry the photos are so dark...I need to work on photography skills!
