2010 GDS Try

I realized tonight as I was cleaning things up on my blog and staring my process of uploading all of my layouts to DST that I completely missed uploading a few layouts here to my blog.  So here it goes.  All of these layouts were for the GoDigital Scrapbooking Supreme Team challenge in the fall of 2010.  Most of the designers do not still appear to be at GDS so I have not linked to kits.  As I complete the cleaning things up around my blog I will be trying to find out if the designers have moved onto another store that I can link to.

Week 1 we had the pleasure of using “What A Hoot” by Tricia Curtis Designs.  I LOVED the owls then and I still do.  Not sure what it is with me and owls.  🙂

whatahootThis is the layout I created.  My girls love running around a tree we have in our yard 2010GDS_wk1_What-a-Hootand I wanted to give my layout movement and I think I achieved that well with the circular framing and having the pictures actually show the different angles.







Week 2 we had the pleasure of working with “Winter Dreaming” by Studio4 Designworks.


This is the layout I created using my favorite inspirations, my girls!  2010GDS_wk2_CindyLouWhos

My three girls have had long enough hair to have the pig tails like Cindy Lou Who.  My first daughter was actually nicknamed that by her physical therapist whenever I put her hair in pig tails which was quite a bit.  It helped keep her hair out of her face as we worked her hard on her physical therapy.

So I took part of the paper giving it the angle of the tree, and then used pictures of my girls as ornaments on the tree.  The great part is I was even able to coordinate the ornament frames to match their favorite colors. 🙂



The third week is one when I didn’t make it past.  But I still had the pleasure of creating with the kit “Dainty” by HK Designs.


This one I had a much harder time coming up with my muse. 2010GDS_wk3_Dainty

I finally came up with this layout but as I uploaded I told my husband it wasn’t going to be good enough.  I just couldn’t feel it as much.  That is the hard part when you are applying to be a CT person and scrap the way I do with stories first.

This picture though is precious to me as it is a picture of a friend of ours daughter holding our first daughter.  Z knew there was something different about Miss Angela and she wanted to be near her the entire time she was at the house.  Our friends live in Germany which made it very hard for Miss Z when Angela passed.

Hope you enjoyed my blast from the past.  🙂
