New Year Crop

I've told you about the 5 week long crop happening over at My Scrapbook Nook.  Challenge 1 & 2 were posted last weekend, and closed this weekend.  I wanted to share with you the layouts I created for each of those.
Challenges 1 was a recipe challenge.  You needed to use the assigned number and specifications of products, and then follow the directions to create your layout.  This was an exercise for me that resulted in two layouts rather than just one.  I was so excited to get started on the challenge, that as soon as I read the product list I went off to create.  I should have scrolled down a little further to see that there were directions I was suppose to have followed.  Oops.
Here's the layout I created based on the product list.
My sister and brother in-law.  Using Studio Calico Jan kit.
And here's the layout I created based on the product list AND the directions.
Using My Scrapbook Nooks January kit featuring Lily Bee papers
If you look closely you'll notice they both have a lot of the same elements.  I am glad I managed to get both layouts, even if I did go about it the long way.

Challenge 2 was to use 10 different patterned papers.  I know that sounds like a ton, but there are some creative ways to use that many without overloading your page with colour.  I had 2 different ideas I thought would work well.  When I looked through the thread however, I discovered that 2 others had the same ideas also.  Hence this layout of my one of my dear friends and her daughter.
Using the Lily Bee papers again - no journaling required Maddy's expression says it all :)
There are two more challenges up for this week.  You can see them here.  There are some fun prizes up for grabs so if you decide to jump in, it may just be worth the effort to upload to the gallery too.  Tell them Sherri sent you :)

eta: look what I just saw...

Fun right?!  And I've been contacted by Francine Clouden once again to be featured in "Inspiration du Jour" over at Craft Gossip.  A scrappy good day thus far :)

Thanks for stopping by,
