After seeing my layout amongst the DCWV top 10 in December, I decided to give it another try for January. Here is what I came up with:
...And wouldn't you know it! My layout was selected again! You can't even begin to imagine how very excited I was! I spent 2 weeks off and on working on this layout. I knew I wanted to make it a masculine layout, but sometimes masculine layouts can appear "plain." The challenge with masculine layouts is trying to embellish them without flowers and fru! I think I did a pretty decent job of using The DCWV Guy Stack on this layout!
For the February Stackaholic challenge, I decided to go WILD:
There was no second guessing the use of the DCWV Gone Wild Stack for this layout of myself and my girlfriends at my wedding in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. I love all of the vibrantly colored animal printed papers agains the all black zebra printed paper from the stack as well. Fingers crossed for the 3-Peat!
Here are a two other layouts I worked on this month:
This one was inspired by a layout that I had filed away in my favorites over at Scrapbook.com. I created this for the Scrap Your Favorites Challenge and the Use Your Scraps Challenge. I LOVE the way this turned out...bright and full of personality, just like the subject! He has a birthday this week, by the way!
This one was done for the Round Robin Challenge over at Scrapbook.com. Even though it is a Christmas picture, I totally gave it a Valentine spin! I used my Cricut to cut the word LOVE, utilizing hearts as the "O." I've gotten very comfortable with tearing papers...here I layered it on top of a sheet of printed paper from one of my K & Company stacks that I've hoarded for some time now!
Be sure to come back to check out some of the FABULOUS swap items I received. I am in the process of closing out 2 swaps on sb.com, then I am going to take a bit of a swap sabatical, to focus solely on my layouts and mini albums.
