LOL... I don't mean to be difficult... I just think in grayscale when I think black and white.

I'm easy! lol Just trying to give you a hard time ... and get you card-making (the whole card thing was added especially for you!! I tried to pick 3 challenges you can do with cards not just pages).

I missed that we were doing a mini VC. :LOL: Some kind of board host I am! ha ha ha

I'm totally and completely swamped. Surgey is in 6 days. I can't seem to get my act together and get other stuff done. Anyone want to come help me tag stuff? So no cropping for me at all. Sad

Well Trina it worked. I dreamed about this challenge last night and came up with an intriguing idea using a new stamp set I've been itching to use!

Any chance of extending it to the 20th??? We have an out-of-town b-day party we're going to on Saturday that will keep me busy all day, but I will have some time on Sunday. If not, I may have to do this challenge but just not enter it... I have a great picture I'm itching to use. Smile

I'm a dummy. I just looked at your OP and saw Oct 16-19 as the next VC date and thought this one ended on the 19th. Is there a smiley that smacks itself in the head? That's the one I need.

Found it!

:doh:

I can not get this to photograph correctly. I'll try again later in a different area. I liked the idea of breaking up the orderly-ness of the typical squares, messing with negative stamping and wishing joy in non traditional colors. I think it works.

ETA: A different shot

I totally can't decide if this page is finished. I don't have a title on it, just the journaling strips. But I can't come up with a good one, and I think I actually like the white space. *sigh* Any ideas would be welcomed! Smile

OK... I've never done anything like this... but thought I'd give it a go (I am on maternity leave and have way too much time on my hands with just the 2 little ones at home with me and the big kids in school all day). If I didn't follow the rules or did something wrong, please let me know.

The journaling reads:
Sweet daughter of mine,
watching you navigate these difficult years
of growth and change
makes me yearn to rescue you and protect you...
but in order to truly become
the woman you are destined to be
I must let you learn
to love, lose and live

Sorry it's blurry...

Journaling says: Nathan seemed to be getting sleepy while he played. So Mommy asked "do you want to take a nap?" His response - he grabbed a pillow from the couch and got comfy on the floor!

Lauren, that is so cute! Both the layout and the story!!! Smile Everything on the LO is very well placed. I have such a hard time leaving white space without it looking awkward but yours is perfect!!!

Beth, that is gorgeous! I love the pink/white/black combo!

I am usually not a one picture, empty space layout kind of girl. It is hard for me not to want to fill up the space.
