Weekly Challenge #169

Sooooo...Who's ready for a new weekly challenge after a super duper Speed Scrap Marathon?!?!?!?
Not me...that's for sure...hahaha

Alrighty...here's a little incentive to get back to some scrappin' this weekend....

Your PP is.....


Isn't it fabulous?!?!? Created by Michelle (Msbagley) from Mad For the Mouse. She's opening shop and has some fabulous products...Make sure you and check it out at her blog, Made For the Mouse

Until then...HERE'S YOUR CHALLENGE:
I know that when we scrap so fast, we can end up with a LO that we want to change up or re-do...So your challenge is to pick a LO from your gallery that you would like to finish or re-do. You can add some journaling, change the pictures, add more embellishments, or use of template...

Of course, if you are completely in love with all your LOs from the marathon, the alternate challenge would be to pick your favorite LO from the gallery and lift it.


Easy peasy, right???

Remember a few guidelines for a Weekly Challenge:
1. Layout should be uploaded to the MouseScrappers Gallery in the Weekly Challenge category.
2. Your layout needs to be posted in the appropriate venue/attractions thread on the forum. If you have a Character meet & greet layout, please post it in the appropriate thread in the Character Encounters section!
3. Come back to this thread and leave a link to your LO in the gallery AND a link to where you posted your LO in the venue/attractions thread by January 29th, 11:59pm PST (2:59am EST)
4. You aren't required to leave love, but it is always nice. If someone leaves you a comment, please comment on their layout as well.


I can't wait to see what you all create!! Enjoy!!

Weekly Challenge #169

I'm so glad I discovered all of the challenges you guys have! After that weekend of Speed Scrapping (my first ever!) I got totally hooked on the challenge concept. I've already completed my book from this trip so this gives me a reason to keep scrapping (even if it's the same pics over and over again!).

Here's my redo of Speed Scrap #135...I definitely had some things I wanted to change and I like it much better now!

Thanks so much for the fun challenge! I knew exactly what I wanted to do to tweak these two pages so that they flowed together better.

Original pages:


I put the title on the left page higher so it would be more of the focus, and changed it to a banner to match the other word art. Moved word art down on right page. made the staples holding the day strips smaller. Changed the font on the day strips and made it smaller. Changed the scale of a couple clusters so it matched the scale of the others better. Made the larger pic on the right page the same size as all of the others. Moved everything on the left page more toward the center to better match the right side. Double checked my journaling and found a few mistakes. Guess I didn't know how to spell Pavilion lol!!

A lot of little changes but I think it really made the two pages flow together much better.

Thanks for the challenge. I had been thinking about changing this page for a while now

Original:


New:


In the original, I loved the sunburst, but wasn't happy with the flow of the rest of the pager after I completed the challenge. In the new version I changed the red paper to blue to match my son's shirt. I took out some elements and added white mickey heads scattered around the page. I changed the blended photo (which didn't look quite right with the sunburst) to a regular photo. I kept the Mickey profile that matched the one in Joshua's shirt in the top left corner but added a stitched frame around it. I removed the smaller one standing beside him. I'm happier now

I am still so new to this and with challenge 126 being my first one I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into

Here is the original:



and here is the new version. I used the same kit and most of the same embellishments. I used a template this time to help me compose my layout.:

I updated my pages from Speed Scrap Challenges 126 and 128 to make them work together as a 2-page spread (and to remove some of the required elements that I felt made the pages too busy). The right-hand page was to have only scenery,no people, and I really wanted to add the picture with my kids, so I did that, too. I also changed my title so that I could use a paper piecing that I have (made it into a png image) since I am doing this album digitally rather than traditionally.
Also posted in the forum here.

Thanks for the great (and easy) challenge! Made me get back in and re-work layouts I wasn't completely happy with. I think I'll go back in and re-work the others.

Thanks for the challenge Jessica, I thought this LO from ss133 (that by coincidence was hosted by Michelle) was OK but just too simple, so added some few elements and pics and I think it now matches better its right side from ss140. Thanks for hosting and thanks Michelle for another cute PP!
