Contest Crazy!

I took a scrapbooking vacation for a while there, but finding all of the great online scrapbooking communities have really helped me find my motivation again. I have decided to scrap my entire NOLA vacation using a contest for every page- a little personal challenge for myself. :0) I'm getting close to finishing sooo. . . a few more vacation pages and SUPER CUTE puppy and kitty shots are to follow. :0)

Both of these pages are the second in two page layouts (first pages are in previous posts . . . see if you can match them up.) :0)

Lafayette Cemetery page 2:
I found a great new community this week called
Challenge Heaven. Oh my gosh! They have the best challenges! This is my first one for the word challenge. You had to use the word "remember" and distressing. I inked a lot and distressed the edge of the photo mat paper with my paper scrapper. You will see more pages inspired by their challenges soon. . .Love this new ning!!!

Oak Alley Plantation Page 2:
What a fantastic layout from Sassy Lil'Sketches that fit my pics perfectly. I inked my chipboard letters "time" with distressing ink and then covered them in Glossy Accents. I was pretty happy with the outcome. :0) I just have to add how proud of myself I am that I'm journaling along the way- woo hoo!
