NSD Challenge - White Space *closed*

Are you ready for some fun scrappy time? Each of the Studio Calico DT Members are posting challenges on their blogs. I said a slew of challenges and I mean it! :) Check them out, yeah? List on my side bar :)

My challenge to you, as I said in my previous blog post.

White Space. Create a layout with white space. Even better if your base is white cardstock. White Space.


My sample layout.

Look Closely

This is an iPhone photo :) Lisa is challenging you to scrap with photos taken by a phone camera, while Maggie's challenge is to use some mist on your layout. Just an example of how you can combine challenges. Yes, you can.

Some close-ups. Not that you need to hang around to see them, if you would rather make your way straight into your scraproom to start playing, I totally understand! Heee!!

close up 2

close up 3

Look Closely, can you see us there, in the mirror? :)

I used my fabulous Tiny Attacher (OMG... that thing is seriously, seriously useful. I stapled wood with it!), an Anthology journaling card, some yummy yellow baker's twine, Doily Rub On, lemon mist, some brads, a torn Starbucks coffee cup sleeve (which i inked a little for a bit more of oomph).

I also punched a butterfly, used some other leftovers from my past kits and some items from my personal stash. That felt good, really good!

So okay, that's my take on the challenge. Show me yours. Wanna know what you're playing for? (I am totally channeling my inner Jeff Probst here.) Yes, I do watch Survivor. Think what you want. I'm addicted to reality tv Jeff and Phil Keoghan. Goodness, I'm rambling. Sorry.

Okay, you're playing for a $10 Gift Certificate to Studio Calico. Yes, that amazing place that is running the special on American Crafts adhesive. (scroll down if you missed my last post).

what do you have to do? Easy.
1. Scrap your heart out. You're allowed to combine challenges.
2. Upload your layout to your Studio Calico gallery. If you don't have an account, it just takes a few seconds to register for one. You have nothing to lose :) Come join us.
3. Link your layout to this post. Link must originate from Studio Calico gallery. Links from other source will not be considered.
4. Dateline is 8am EST on May 2nd, 2010. That is 9pm, May 2nd for my Singapore readers. The rest of you, this is the site I use for time conversion.

Winner will be chosen randomly from all eligible entries.

I have a winner for the Coffee Stain Stamp. Yasmin! Congrats, hun! Do email me your mailing address, okay, girl? Email button on the left side bar :)

That being said, Good Luck! I hope you'll have loads of fun on NSD! And oh, Jeff's birthday is just one day before mine. Useless bit of information, I know. Just feel like sharing :) *grins*

xoxo

A couple of things to note. 1. Your layout is gorgeous and the sentiment behind the photo is so great! 2. I hope your kiddos catch the subtle hint, lol. 3. My hubby's birthday is a month AFTER mine. Sheer torture, I tell you, ever major milestone.

XOXO

I need to work on this concept a little more. I tend to add too much when I really do appreciate the uncluttered look of the white space.

I don't usually leave a lot of white space on my LO's - I'm more the multiple photo scrapper. My page is very simple, just used some mist, thread, alpha and flower, no PP whatsoever:
