Scraplift Challenge

Some of my scrappy friends are hosting a challenge and there is blog candy to be awarded.  I love a chance to win a prize.  These are the originals…  
You can learn more about the actual challenge by visiting Kathy’s or Rachel’s blogs.  I LOVE these layouts, I saw something similar on Pinterest and have wanted to try it!  Thanks for the inspiration ladies.  Both of your versions are fantastic!!

I actually did a layout too…I told you I was going to try to do more layouts.  I really like how it turned out.

I used Echo Park Country Drive for my base and Echo Park Happy Days for all of the circles and photo mat.  The journaling banners are Echo Park Springtime.  I got all the paper from Crop Chocolate, my favorite place to shop for scrappy sweetness.  I also used Distress Ink-Broken China, Black Soot and Worn Lipstick Lush rhinestones (from CC) and MM Paper Reverie pearl gems (from CC).  Some of the tiny circles are stamped with Distress Ink and a pencil eraser.  I also used Distress Stickles-Broken China.  One of my new favorite techniques is masking, which I did all around the layout.  I adhered everything to the page with the Xyron Mega Runner, one of my latest purchases from Crop Chocolate.

I still have to do some journaling but I am linking up to the challenge so wish me luck!  Oh, and if you feel inspired, PLEASE link up a project of y our own.  I hope you do!!
