Final Weeks

I just completed the last LO for the 8 week challenge at scraplove.com. I've gotta tell you this was one of the most fun contests I've ever participated in! I don't envy the judges, though because everyone ROCKED their LOs week after week!

Here are the rest of my LOs from weeks 6-8. For week 6, I had to create a LO using "at least TWO transparent items. In addition to using the Scraplove color scheme for your layout. (Think orange, yellow, brown, green, white etc...)" This is the LO I came up with and I was very proud of it (the entire background is clear as well as many of the elements), but somewhere along the line I had a brain fart and forgot I had to use the site's colors.
So then I had to rush at the last minute and came up with this one. The backgorund is also clear, I just took the pic on my rug - it's so hard to photograph clear LOs! I took this photo on my birthday and I thought it was great for the color scheme!

journaling reads: It's been nearly 3 weeks since my 33rd birthday, the day this picture was taken, and I can't help but wonder what this year has in store for me. Will I be blessed with another baby? Will I finally find another job? I guess I'll have to be patient and wait and see. I hope whatever is in store is good!
This LO was for week 7. I had to create a LO all about me using a self-portrait, at least 5 sentences of journaling, and paint. This is by far the most open I've ever been on a LO. It's also the most journaling I've ever put on a LO and let me tell you, I could have kept typing. The story is about overcoming the pain of a pregnancy loss. I won't post the journaling here because it it just too much, but it's posted here if you want to check it out.

And now for week 8...I had to create a LO using anything EXCEPT patterned paper or cardstock as my background! This was so much fun to do! I had every intention of using corrugated cardboard for my background because I've always wanted to do a LO like that, but then I was moseying along in AC Moore and I happened to come across this 12" scalloped circle mirror and it was just too perfect! I love how this turned out...it looks soooo much better IRL! I only adhered 3 sides of the frame so I can change the picture whenever I want!

Now I just have to sit back and wait until September 12th to find out who won that wonderful prize pack and GDT position!
