Some More Layouts!

This first lo was done for the Sept. Challenge over at for the EFG that I am with.

September Technique Challenge: Use Die-Cuts!! You may choose any subject, any number of pics, etc., but you must use at least one die-cut on your layout! This can be as your background (as in a die-cut paper), or it can be an embellishment. You can even die-cut your photo(s)! It can be from a kit/paper collection, or you can cut it from a die-cut machine. 25 points!

TWIST: Distress something, somewhere on the layout--use scissors or an edge distresser, tear something, crumple something--just distress at least one item for an extra 10 points!

I have had these two pictures out forever wanting to scrap them of Avery... Heck I think he is about 2 or 3 here.. I will have to go hunt now to put a date on. But I used BG paper and my die cut it the snowflake which I added stickles and a button to. Then I distressed the edges of the cardstock and added stickles along that as well, you can't hardly see it, but it looks very nice and is eye catching. The santa and Spirit of Christmas are actually from the dollar store from way back when. Added the ric-rac for a simple interest as well as the row of buttons!

I just love these pics of Avery, even if he has his meal all over his face!

This second lo was for the September BOM Challenge: Create A Layout About Someone or Something That Inspires You! This can be anything, really! A special person--you don't have to have actually met them, either! Or it could be a family member, friend, whoever! Or maybe it is a thing, place, object, etc., that inspires you! Whatever it is, scrap it for your BOM so you can remember it! 25 points!
TWIST: Use buttons! You must use at least 2 buttons on the layout to get an extra 10 points!

I did my lo on my best friend Cynthia. I listed the things that inspire my about her, although I can't believe I left off the word intelligence! I realized that when I was finished... ugh... oh well, this is quite simple, but I love the green and pink which is basic grey papers. I used the buttons as you can see as well as the twist.

I guess I am starting to get the hang of a simple when I get down to hours before they are due, I guess that happens, although I do really like them both.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek and if you, please leave me a message and tell me hi!

These are both wonderful layouts, Nina! I love the adorable pictures of Avery, and that he has food on his face -- it's part of the charm of childhood -- LOL! What a wonderful tribute to your friend Cynthia! The colors are lovely togther, and I love all the little details and how you used the buttons for the challenge. I haven't scrapped any photos in so long, but you are inspiring me!
