Color Combo & Me Layout (Psychedelic!)

Whoa!! Lime green & fuschia! Striking color combo. OK, so, this, too is a bit of a cheater layout, because (even though it IS NEW!), I combined the color combo challenge with the describe yourself in one sentence layout. I realize that I didn't really construct a sentence in the layout, but it's the same idea, right??

End of Summer Layout

OK.... I think I am really excited for the school year to start since this is the first year Kieryn will be in school all day and Meghan starts preschool. What will I do with myself for those 5 hours of me time every week??? I don't know but I sure am anxious to try out the new schedule!!!

Of course, part of me is bummed because it means that our schedule gets more rigid, the rain will eventually come, and a part of me will be a little sad that Kieryn is going to be gone all day.

To celebrate summer create a 2 page layout that shows off all your summer highlights!! What a great way to get all your summer scrapping summarized in one page!!!!

Color Combo

Okay, so I lied to Lori... I didn't use an old layout! But this one is all digital and took as long as one of Jillybean's layouts, you kinda lose track of time when doing it digi-style! And, this is way busier than I would normally do so it definately fits the out of the box premise! Plus... isn't he cute?!

Color Combo Challenge

Ok, this is kind of a cheater layout, because it is one that I did last year, but it's done in one of the color combos on the list (orange & light blue) and since I'm feeling a bit pressured because I'm behind on the challenges, I thought I would throw this one in!!

Finally a post! Here is my monochromatic with a punch of color + who I am defined layout all in one.
My journaling reads: Jill: n; a/k/a mom, wife, friend, scrapbooker, daughter, sister...{nickname; jillybean} Currently undefinable. A period of uncertainty, unsure of what adventure is coming my way but excited to get started. I just need to open my eyes and be open to the possibilities.

Photoless Memory

This challenge provided me an opportunity to journal/scrapbook some old memories feelings regarding Tucker's diagnosis of PKU. Very therapeutic!

Color Combos

This week create a layout using one of the following color combinations, try picking colors that you wouldn't normally try and see what you come up with!

dark teal/orange/spring green
cherry red/teal
orange/light blue
orange/red/bright green
magenta/lime green
mango/lavender/sea blue

NO photo necessary

SO, really I didn't know what I wanted or could do for this challenge, but I like the end result. It's totally funky and whimsical, and a complete departure from my normal style. I had thought that Jillybean just hated me since she posted this nearly impossible challenge, but now I think she is a genius because I am so out of the box on this one! Thanks Jilly!

Yeppers, I am late and completely digital this time! And I am okay with that now! I don't even know what I am going to do for the unphotographed memories... that almost seems impossible to fathom!!

New Challenge - Better Late than Never.

Scrap a layout about a memory that doesn't have corresponding photos.

(I have a layout post coming soon...since I have just gotten back from my trip to MN and didn't do any scrapping while I was there I thought I would combine the last 2 challenges into one layout.)

Describe Yourself

This week, your challenge is to create a layout of yourself.... and you have to describe yourself in one sentence. Mine will probably be a run-on sentence, fraught with too many commas and not enough periods!

Monochromatic Plus a Punch!

I am so glad that we are doing challenges again! I really missed it! Here's my monochromatic layout, the larger frame is actually a light green, but it's not really showing up that way online!
