My final entries...

For SYTYCS.

That's right...this is IT!

The criteria this week was fairly simple...just create a single and a double page LO that is 'you'.

Well, this seemed simple until I realised I don't 'do' double page LOs. **gulp**

So I have gone for a very simple design... Lots of handcutting(that sucker in the top corner there...all hand cut baby) and mostly just using BG Urban Prairie...also some Thickers, bling, Fancy Pants and Sei . This is pretty much 'me'. I like layers, PP, stitching and bling. I like ink and distressing and butterflies and I LOVE my Threading Water punch!!!
I also used my fave product at the moment (well, for today anyways LOL) my trusty gold pen. I love it. When used to outline stuff it makes it *pop* like nobody's business!
I layered the handcut elements using foam dots to make them stand out a bit more.


And my single. I actually really like this one...I think its my fave layout ever...and I think its mainly because of the photo.
Again...I used my gold pen...
And flowers and some PP by Paper Loft (I think....) Bo Bunny bits and pieces there too, and some Prima brads and lace. A gorgeous chippy clock covered in my new favourite distress ink colour 'Aged Mahogany'(perfect for christmas projects!)
Here 'tis the finished product!

I don't think it photographed very well...
So, wish me luck...tomorrow will mean the end of the comp, and a winner will be decided! Yikes! I really truly wish Chloe and Kelly all the very very best for this final round. I truly feel priveledged to be considered anywhere near as talented as these amazing ladies. The talent throughout the comp had been incredible. Just amazing. Each week, I have been blown away by the amazing galleries, and each week I have been FLOORED, GOBSMACKED, AMAZED to have made the cut.
I can't even begin to tell you what this comp has done for my confidence...truly.
I really just thank anyone who voted for me. It has been SO much fun. And the other contestants...you guys just plain old ROCK! Julie and the Scraptac girls, thanks for an amazing comp. I have met new friends and found so much inspiration in the challenges and the galleries....Thanks all so very very very much!!! (*heh* I feel as if I should be wearing a sparkly gown and sporting a fancy hair do...)
