VC Challenge #2 - Scrap with your scraps

A scrap scrap challenge ...

This challenge is for you to create a layout using only scraps! You can use a piece of cardstock to hold it all together (i.e. a spare white piece that you adhere all of the scraps to but we don't see it in the final layout). And for an extra twist, I want to see a picture of the scraps BEFORE you do the layout (posted at the same time as your finished layouts, just want to see a before and after photo of the process).

Sorry digi scrappers, this challenge is for paper scrappers only. The prize is a physical one to be mailed to the winner in the end. Smile

Cards too? If you want it more fair I can even submit a couple cards to equal one layout...

I would have replied sooner, but for some reason my internet crapped out. Anyhow, the challenge is just for layouts. I love seeing cards with scraps, but I think it's a lot more challenging to do a layout with them and that's what I'm trying to inspire. Wink

YAY! my first LO in a Very long time probably since the phone tag.

Here are the scraps I was working with. I didn't use them all but these are the scraps that fit the color scheme.

Here is the page. The blue page was about 2 inches shy of a 12x12. I think I used a strip on a card at some point.

Now that I look at it on the computer it kind of makes me dizzy. :confused:

I finally got to doing this challenge.

here are the scraps, the tan piece of cardstock is just a backing, none of it actually shows thru.

And here is the layout:

Okay, weird!!! I posted this earlier and now I can't find it. I thought maybe I posted it in the wrong thread, but I don't see it anywhere! So maybe the post monster just made it disappear? Let me know if you see it somewhere it doesn't belong and I'll delete it! LOL

The green piece was only about 10 inches wide, so I had to make strips to go around the border. The seams are not as obvious IRL as they are in the picture. :shrug: I got done cutting the journaling tag, and realized I needed to attach it with the brads. I dunno if that is allowable or if it was supposed to be all paper, so if you don't want to count this for the prize that is a-ok, Gwen! Smile If it makes it any better, they are leftover from an album I made for SIL last year. So I guess they are scrap brads? Lol

I'm glad so many are playing in my challenge!!!

Here's the double page I did with my scraps. The second picture is actually still in a frame in my room, but it's from the same day, just different expression. So now I have the paper ready for when i change it out of my room.

I had sooo much fun with this layout. I reached in my scrap bin, picked out a few bright colored scraps and thought "work with this Charys". I even took the picture of the scraps before designing my layout, because I wanted to force myself to use only them. Smile And I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I gotta say the fiber and the baby paper were the inspiration for this one. The fiber was used to wrap up one of my baby shower gifts and I saved it because I loved the colors. Now I HAVE to go get some more cuz it's too much fun!
