SS Challenge week 15

There was so much to share in the time I was missing but, as some of the scrapbookers say, sometimes life gets in the way. I was blogging everyday in my head, but those posts aren't here for some reason. Anyway, we got six layouts from the past challenge. Here they are:

and a close up:

I made this one for my husband. I forgot to order a couple of pictures, but that's what nice about this type of layouts - I can always replace any of the patterned paper square with a photo.

... and a close up. The paper pack I used for this layout was so rich that I didn't need anything else to dress up these squares.

There were three pages made by new contestants. I can't really comment on any of these since I was involved in all of them. Very much involved. Well, here is the first one, which was made by Tanya:


... and a close up. NC stand for North Carolina.

Second one was made by Irina. I really hope she takes a moment to write a little journaling for this layout. This is the one that she and her kids would love to read over and over again. Here is her page:


... close up of metal piece, which I totally love:

And a third one by Suzanna. She didn't do the whole layout, but she chose her pictures, papers, wrote her journaling and decided to use circles for her page. Here is Suzanna's layout:


... and a close up:

And this lovely page was made by Katya. Her pictures say it all. I like how she matted all of her photos and added her title to the side, making it a little more interesting yet staying close to the challenge. Here is Katya's page:

With the nice weather outside and so much things to do during summer, we don't always get as much time to scrapbook. For that reason, I decided to spread our challenges for two weeks apart. I will share anything I create (or should I say "I'll try"), but our SS will be two weeks long for summer time. If you create something you would like to share, just send it in and I'll post it along with my random pages.

SS Challenge for week 16 - Black and white plus one color. Make a page with black/white patterned papers and add one more color to it (you can use different shades of that color).

See you next time!

  10. Lora, I do have pictures and papers for both of those pages, I just didn't have time to complete them. Plus I have another almost finished layout (ran out of tape runner). And I got my pictures to redo that baby page (replace my b/w photos) Lots of catching up! Lora, thank you for noticing my love for taking pictures in every journaling spot! I did that on purpose :)))

  11. For Suzanna's page(yes name was spelled correctly) I did print it and cut it out with scissors and exacto knife.

  12. Lora, no I don't have that picture. I wish I did...
    And that is OK if you didn't do a page last week! We don't want any guilty feelings here! IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO LIVE LIFE AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF IT NOW, THEN GETTING FRUSTRATED WITH KEEPING UP RECORDING WHAT WE'VE ALREADY LIVED!
    Enjoy your day, rest, take pictures and I'm sure we'll see more lo's from you again! <3

    Very nice...very nice...my page looks pretty bad and simple compared to urs. But the most important thing is that Marusya, and Ira finally joined the club. Don't u love to look at pictures and remember fun memories?

  16. Actually girls, how wonderful those layouts may look (with Anyas help) right now i really dont want to think about another page!! That was stressful enough! Just have to mention how great u guys are for doing what u do, u all have a really nice talent with its own style, LOVE it... dont think this is for me :-/ maybe in the future.

    ОтветитьУдалить
  17. And Katya it does NOT look bad!! I love your page... for some reason the red really speaks to me... it might be "simple" to u but i couldn't even come up with that!! Dont put your self down, its your page and your memory and its just that ways it should be!

    Yes it does nice to look back at the finished pages and I agree it is a wonderful memory for me and for my kids. The only problem is that I wish it was really me making my page, it was more like Anya was making it for me in my presence.I JUST DON'T HAVE THE BRAINS TO DO IT!!! I think Anya got some of mine. But at least I am proud of my multi-talanted sister.
