Looking for Votes...

At a trip to scrapbook store last month, the lady there explained about a "Scrap This" contest they have. You pay $3 for a specified set of materials and bring in what you create with it in by the 15th of the following month. It goes on display and the one with the most votes wins a $50 gift certificate to the store! My good friend Karen got a pack for me to work with and this is what I came up with. The pack had sparkly striped paper, chipboard mirror, 1 sparkly brad, metal page turner, a bingo-like board, and about 5 1/2 inches of ribbon. Here's what I did: after removing the number 5 from the bingo board, I placed a picture inside the frame design to cover up the rest (wasn't crazy about that part) and added a choc. chip felt flower with a gold brad I covered in Dazzling Diamonds with Heat N Stick powder. I went around the edges of the mirror in Choc. Chip and folded the ribbon into a bow and held it together with the brad in the pack. The page turner was too bright for me so I just sanded it and it blends in much better now, esp. since I also put another felt flower and sparkly brad in the hole. The letters, corner frames and die for the 5 are from Cuttlebug in Choc. Chip and layered onto Choc. Chip. Oh, I should also mention the striped paper wasn't diagonal - I cut it down to make it that way since my daughter looked like she was in jail or something the other way. So, if you go to Memory Lane in Quakertown, will you vote for me so Karen and I can have a little shopping spree?

what a fun contest! I had to LOL reading the comment about your daughter looking like she's in jail. I feel the same way about striped paper sometimes too. Love the layout--good luck!
