I Won!

Last month, Scrappy Chic's challenge was to do a layout comprised mostly of Making Memories products. I decided to enter the above layout as it's one of my favorites & I won :) Okay, well I actually tied with someone else, but I'm super excited as this was my first time entering one of their challenges! I have no clue what I won yet, though. Now I need to make a trip to the store to find out......like I really need a reason to go to a scrapbook store ;)
And while I'm at it, I thought I would share a recent layout. I'm trying to do more layouts for my dd's Europe album & I really like the way this one turned out. It's of the Heidelburg Castle in Germany. I painted along the edges of the layout with 2 different colors of paint, although it's kinda hard to tell. I also used some Tim Holtz Grungeboard along with lots of the Primas from Michaels.

I've got an extremely busy 5 days ahead of me as I have to work Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday while still trying to fit my workouts in there, too. But I'm determined to do it! I slacked way too much in October & promised myself that I would get back on track this month. I also have a couple more layouts that I'm working on, so I want to try to finish those up this weekend as well.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! It's supposed to get cold here after being in the 70's the past 3-4 days, so I'm not looking forward to that!

Till next time,
Benita
