At least it's done...

You guys know I love my scrapbooking creations, but I actually have to say that I think the above page is kind of ugly.  It's just not me.  It's for the ACOT contest to use a newspaper-themed title.  I like this aspect of it.  My journaling reads like a news article, and I think that's pretty cool.  But otherwise, I kind of hate it.  The colors aren't me, and that floral print reminds me of one of my grandma's polyester tops.  Oh well.  It's done, and that memory is captured.  It's not like anyone is going to care ten years from now.  Hell, nobody but me cares now.  Anyway, this is also for Scrapbook & Cards Today Project 12 January sketch challenge, the Blademaster challenge at Challenge Masters, and the Our Bright Stars and Us challenge to use cream, the word "about," and upcycle something (I used buttons from an old shirt) .  It was inspired by the Nerdy Victorious Scrapbookers collage.  Oh, and last but not least, this is for the Harmonie blog challenge to create a layout with 3 or more photos.

And while we're discussing layouts I'm not particularly fond of...  Here's one I made for the Sketches in Thyme sketch challenge.  I think the busy, floral background was a mistake.  But props to me for busting out the Jolees-style cooking stickers!  I don't care if they're old-fashioned, I think they are cute.  This is also for the ad inspiration challenge at ACOT.

Maybe you are being a little bit hard on yourself...because I like both of these los. Of course, that's only my opinion. ;);) I think the floral background on the second lo is pretty--and I love all of your pics!

You really did a great job with both layouts. I actually like the busy paper. Thank you for playing with Sketches In Thyme. Hope you play again next week.
Hugs

I think you have done a couple fun layouts that were out of your comfort zone- These are the ones that always challenge ourselves.
