Last Cat Layout of My Friend's

I finished this one today. This makes all 4 of my friend's cats. I sure hope she likes them! I used papers and pawprints by Marcee Duggar, stitching by Lisa Carter, Chip Board Alpha by Lauren Bavin, Word Art by Tina Chambers, and a ribbon by Jenna Robertson.

Redone Layout for Kelsey

I wasn't entirely satisfied with the earlier layout I did for Kelsey. Since I was doing the layout for a contest, I was required to use a specific kit. And while the kit had its strengths, it probably wasn't suitable for this photo of Kelsey. So, I redid it using a different kit. I like it much better. This kit is Southwest Flair by Marcee Duggar. I think my friend will like it better too, since she is quite a fan of southwest art (at least I hope so).

Another of my friend's cats

Here is yet another of my friend's cats; I really like how this layout turned out too. Just one more to do. I used a kit by Marcee Duggar, word art by Tina Chambers, and a sketch by sandersmr, all from Digital Scrapbook Place.

Another of my friend's cats

This is another of my friend's cats - she has four, and I promised her I would make a layout for each one of them. This is my second one - I like this one better than the first, because I like the kit I used better. Plus I love this sketch my Stacey Jewell Stahl. Word Art by Tina Chambers. Twist Tie by Meg Beverly. Autumn Embrace Page Kit by Michelle Shefveland. Heart by Cindy Wyckoff. Chipboard Effect by Atomic Cupcake.

New Contest

Now I'm in a new contest on Digital Scrapbook Place. This one is to find the "Digital Elite Team." The contest is 4 rounds, and they are elimination rounds. And the competition here is much stiffer than the New Kid. I KNOW I won't make it onto the team; I don't even know if I'll make it past round 1. But I'm happy with the layout I made for it. This is a photo I took on Christmas day when we visited my son's fiance's family. This is his future mother-in-law holding her new grandson.

The quote on the journaling strips reads: "A new grandchild . . . to hold in your arms for now, to hold in your heart forever." And along the bottom: "with Mimi 12/25/05"

Trendy Blue Background and Ribbon Set and Trendy Blue Embellishments by Angie Svoboda. I "cut" the letters for the title out of one of the background papers in the set. I also extracted the small flower in the title from the swirly stamp.

Contest Results

I placed 5th in Round 3 with my "Engagement" layout, and I also placed 5th overall for the whole contest. I am so excited about that - I was really surprised, since my round 2 entry didn't place in the top 10 at all. I think I won a couple of page kits and a mini album kit. I haven't done many mini albums, so that will be different.
