VC Challenge #8 - use a tree

I meant to start this earlier, I don't even know what number challenge this is. I was taking pictures and making baby food all morning so I haven't read a thing. I feel so far behind!

But here's my challenge ... create a layout that uses a tree as the major embellishment (outside of the photos). This is paper and digi - I will wait to see who wins (via drawing) before I buy the prize as it will depend on the media of the winner. Wink

Not my fav LO ever, but its OK. I used pop dots on the "pear". That's my favorite part about it.

Here's mine. I really like it! glad you posted a tree challenge Gwen, because it was perfect for this Hawaii layout. Smile But I have a question for you....is that middle tree a Mangrove? I didn't glue the tag down very well, just in case I have to pull it up. I couldn't remember the name of that one and was pretty sure it was a Mangrove. I thought you might know.

Charys, that's an awesome layout!!!!!!!!

I'm googling mangrove tree now ... no luck. I mean, it could be a mangrove, but I can't tell for certain. Wink

Charys, I just asked my DH about your tree and he said he thought it might be a mangrove. He had to learn all trees known to man when he was in school, but it's been so long since he has actually used that knowledge I guess he has forgotten some of them. (Guess that means we're getting old! LOL) So anyway, he thinks that you're right, but he's not 100% sure. Smile

Okay, here's my tree. You might remember this picture from my siggy back in Dec. Wink I printed it on regular inkjet paper - I've been looking at this tree for ages, and just decided I need to use it before it got all bent up. Wink (and it's the reason I started this challenge!).

Ok, so it was bugging me, so I just had to get it done! I wanted to make a two page LO, but I will scrap the other pics later. I am not 100% happy with this page, but I loved the idea! Lol

Every year, Randall and I enter a local canoe race. Since I couldn't this year, he just kayaked it. I thought of the perfect title for it. Oh, and just for giggles, here are a couple of links to some action photos from someone else!

He didn't tip, although it looks like he's about to! Lol

this is a triple (also for changes and hybrid challenges):
I printed the tree and the text from the computer then glued onto paper. I put the pictures on with pop dots, though that doesn't show on here. This will be the cover page of the new album I am starting. The other one is busting at the seams, and I decided to do a family album from now on, rather than an album that is just DS. Once we run out of room, I will put an end date so it will say "Feb 09- whatever new date"

Sadie – I really love your tree page!!! Just a neat layout, love the presentation. And a cool story to go with it.

Katie – I really love this layout, and it’s going into my ‘lift folder!!!

Kelly – love your monkeys (both the monkey and Tristan Wink )

Karen – tree hugger layouts are great!!! I think I have tree hugger photos of each of my three older kids. Wink very cute layout

Shannon – that’s so clever! I love how you put your photos IN the tree like that!

Lauren – that came out really neat. Smile

Beckie – love the buttons as leaves, cool!

Shannon, that could be my new favorite of yours'! I bet it took forever glueing down all those leaves, but the result is great!

Lauren, raising the photos with the popdots was a great idea. Love it!

Beckie, Something about your use of color and papers always catches my eye and makes me look at it twice. (like your polka dots here) Love it.
