With voting complete for the Scrapping with the Stars contest at Coordinates Collections, I am able to share these with you now. These are the last two layouts completed for the final round. This first layout was to be done in the style of Kimberly Madrid, designer for CC.
Cardstock is SU, Patterned papers are My Mind's Eye, Lace is Joann's, Chipboard flourish is Rusty Pickle, Chipboard alpha is Lisa Bearnson, Flowers are Prima, Bird Charm is Blue Moon Beads, letter stickers are Basic Grey.
The Journaling reads: Lauren, this is a game we play together often. I tell you I love you, and you respond "I love you more". If I love you to the moon, you love me to the moon and back...and to Texas, and Hawaii, and Japan, and Sri Lanka, and back. It can go on for hours, so I usually let you win. But here is the truth, and don't ever forget it. I love you more!
This next layout is based on the work of Cathy Zielske. Cathy writes and designs for Simple Scrapbook magazines, and her trademark is work in a clean and simple, graphic style - this one was really hard for me!
I used SU cardstock, Cosmo Cricket and Fancy Pants patterned papers, AC Thickers, and the circle embellishments were from a bulk bin, so the source is unknown. I struggled to get a clear photo of this one - sorry it is not more crisp, I tried a dozen times!
The journaling reads: I have often said that you, Ethan, are my "EASY" child. Your good nature and easy-going personality are such a blessing! I can always count on yu to get your homework done without a struggle, clean up your mess when asked, play nicely with your sister, be ready on time...whatever I ask, really. And you typically do it with a smile! Life can be so difficult. It is nice to have you in my life, and to know that you are just "EASY".
