Challenge #77 - Oversized Title

This week’s challenge is to use an oversized title on your project. I know I am guilty of purchasing many of these titles for my Silhouette because I just love the look of them and then I don’t use them. 
Here’s a page I did about my daughter when she went off to work with her Dad for ‘Take Your Grade 9 to Work Day’. I love the look of the title on this page.  It just says it all.

I read this over-sized title to mean that I should use a title that was more than the single word or two.  
While I did enlarge one word, my title is 5 words long.

I actually did two layouts for this challenge.  This time I did do an over-sized word using some chip letters I have had since 2007. 

Once again, I'm a little late to the party.

#75 - Our four-legged friends

Welcome to another week of Use Your Stuff challenges. This week we are going to be taking time for our four-legged friends. The challenge is all about creating a project around our animals, or using animal products.

My project was about our cat who passed away last year. He enjoyed being right there with us ... especially when someone was eating something. On this morning in particular, he was sitting up to the counter watching my son eat his breakfast.


My layout is about one of our cats, Shadow. Shadow is a very large, very sensitive cat who just loves to be carried around. My girls are more than happy to oblige.


I do have an adorable dog, but I decided to do some photos I have taken from my back door onto my deck.  Last Spring, it looked like a Disney movie with all the critters hanging around. 


My critter is not four legged, this cute little chick is for one of my nieces.

Challenge #74 - Enbracing White Space

Hi everyone.  Lynne here.
White Space on your scrapbook page/card is the area that is devoid of any photos, embellishments, journalling or title.  It doesn't have to be white.  It is a resting place for your eye so that you can embrace the entire layout.
So my challenge to you is to embrace WHITE SPACE.

I used white space in this page about my daughter.
I must admit, I don't very often have a lot of white space on my layouts. I don't really think I know how to use it effectively. I love both Lynne's and Milena's exampes. This is my attempt at using white space.
