Challenge 12 - Laura

Gail did a great job with all her layouts and it was so hard to choose just one to scraplift. The one I chose was her very first layout for challenge 1

Here is my scraplift

The race was a lot of fun and I hope to participate again next year. We won't know until Tues if we won the grand prize or not. Wouldn't that be nice? Gail and I are getting very excited and can't wait till they announce the winner. Only one team will win. I think the prize is over $800 worth of digital prizes. Wish us luck.

Challenge 12

Your challenge is to scraplift your favorite layout done by your partner. You must scrap your page about your favorite aspect of the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race.

That's it. Two components. A scraplift and a topic.

And for completing the challenge, you'll get a coupon for $7 good towards anything in my personal store at NDISB. The coupon is good through the end of the year, so if you don't see $7 worth of stuff you don't already have, I've got plenty of new stuff coming out.

ETA: The layout you scraplift of your partner needs to be one an ADSR layout. Thanks for the question!!

Challenge 11 - Laura's

I see a lot of movies. No not in the theatre but at home as we have a home movie theatre in our basement. We rent from Netflix so we get at least 3 movies a week to watch at night when the children are sleeping.

Recently my favorite movie has been "The Phantom of the Opera" but I couldn't think of how it relates to me except for the fact that I love the music from that movie. I have the soundtrack and listen to it often.

So I went with my all time favorite movie "Beaches". I saw this movie as a teenager and it remains to be my favorite movie. So here's my layout:

Looking forward to the last challenge and hoping it's not a difficult one since my children are celebrating their birthday on Saturday so I maybe quite busy and don't want to disappoint Gail. Maybe they'll post it early so I can get it done and don't have to worry about running out of time with the party.

Challenge 9 - (Laura's Embarrassing Moment)

Victoria lost her earring so we went to the jewelry store to purchase her a new pair. The jewelry store is located in our supermarket so all the kids were in the shopping cart. It was also senior citizen day. I was leaning over the counter looking at the earrings when an older woman across the counter started to make a strange noise. I looked up and she pointed to her breast area and then pointed to me. My boobs were showing! How embarrassing giving a show to the older men in the store. This will be the last time I wear this shirt with the triplets. They cling and tug on me all day long and apparently one of the buttons opened.

Challenge 9 - Embarrassing Moment

Scrap your *most embarrassing moment*—you know, that time you put your foot in your mouth big-time, or got caught doing something you never would have done if you’d known people were watching? Yeah—scrap that!

But that’s not all! For this challenge you MUST:

--Use a photo that goes with your most embarrassing moment. It doesn’t have to be a photo of the actual moment (because who stops in the middle of something super embarrassing and says, “Hey, I should get a picture of this so I can scrap it later!”?), but just a visual aid to the story. If you walked around all day with a piece of toilet paper hanging out the back of your pants, then use a photo of a roll of toilet paper. Wink

--Journal about your embarrassing moment.

--Use at least one ribbon

--Use at least one tag

--Use at least two different fonts on your layout (not including alphas)

Note: You must be involved in the embarrassing moment in some fashion - it doesn't have to be yours alone - but this is supposed to be about you. Smile

Challenge hosted by oscraps. Reward: choice of one of our fab-O Oscraps collaborative kits for completing this leg of the race! (prize awarded via coupon code to the Oscraps shop)

Challenge #8 - Girl Talk (Gail's Layout)

When I first read this challenge I thought it was going to be harder than it turned out to be. I had no clue what to do. I have a great online friend and we have our girl talk almost every morning so I thought about centering my page around that relationship. Problem was...I had no photos to go with it. Not really a problem...just a stumbling block...because I could always do a page with just journaling, but I had just completed that type of page and really didn't want to journal that much right now.

I finally remembered the box of photos I recently got from my mom that had just been scanned. I recalled seeing a photo of me when I was about 3 years old and my favorite aunt, who was about 17 at the time, having a tea party. It couldn't be more appropriate for this challenge. Aunt Mary has always been my favorite aunt and we've always been close. We started with tea parties and we still continue our girl talk over coffee to this day. That's the story behind my layout below.

Now I'm off to stalk the sponsor websites in hopes that Challenge #9 is posted early!
Thanks for looking!

Challenge 8 - Girl Talk (Laura)

This was a simple challenge, I'm glad as some of the others have been a little more difficult. The last photo I took of my best friend, Debbie, was at my niece's birthday party back in April. So I just had to find the photo. I just loved the August color challenge at deco-pages so I took it from there.

Journaling reads: Debbie and I have been friends for 31 years. We met in kindergarden. Now that we are both married and have children our main conversation is about our children. Potty training, tantrums, MOPS meetings, activities for the children, etc. Years ago when we had no children we would talk about our husbands. Never any mention of poop. Who would have known we would have been sharing poopy discussions years later.
