On The Waterfront

I completed this layout last night for challenges on 2 boards; Treasured Scrapbooking and Just Scrappin' (TS & JS).

I am hosting a black/white challenge on JS, so this layout is for that challenge. I used all black and white paper as well as black/white photos. The only other colors you see are from embellishments/lettering (the sun and the title). For the sun, I used chipboard and covered it with tissue paper. Then, I used 2 different colors/textures of ribbon for the sun's rays. The title was cut using the Cricut Printing Press cart.
It also completes the requirements for Kerri's Molecular Formula (H2O) challenge which required something pertaining to water be used in a layout.

At TS, this layout is for 2 challenges:
Abbie's Progression Challenge - For her challenge, I had to use pics to show progression. These photos are of Carter turning on the sprinklers, watering my gladiolas, and then running through the water.
Jenn's Summer Fashion Challenge - This challenge is about how fashion trends can be used/seen in scrapping. She provided us with fashion pics, and we were to use them for our inspiration. This summer's hottest fashion styles are the use of lots of color as well as black/white, vivid patterns (stripes, circular, etc..), large jewelry (dangle earrings, large bracelets, etc...), ribbons, scarves, bows, - So, the use of black and white as well as the stripes and dots, large/circular/ colorful sun with rays of ribbon, etc ...

I have several more challenges to complete, so I am off to enjoy some quality alone time to scrap. It is such a wonderful de-stressor!

Please check out all the other wonderful layouts, cards, etc... by the talented ladies at Treasured Scrapbooking and Just Scrappin'. I have provided a link for these boards on this blog under "Place I Like To Visit."

Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon:)
