I hope you have enjoyed our Race layouts. We look forward to doing this each year.
Challenge 12 was one that we were suppose to do together. Rose was an angel and did the entire layout except for my journaling and my photo. My MIL passed away last Monday so I spent all of last week dealing with funeral and family, etc. Thank you Rose. We were given the word art "We are Storytellers". We had to journal about that topic and include our own photos. I don't have many photos of me since I am the one behind the camera most of the time.
I'm really behind in putting these layouts on our blog. I just keep forgetting about the blog. I'll be catching everything up soon, but they will probably be all out of order.

For the 7th challenge, we were given this adorable kit at Sunshine Studios. We had to use everything in the kit at least once. We were not limited to just this kit so I chose to use Victorian Strawberry by Studio Flergs and Kaye Winiecki.
For challenge 8, we were to play "Scrap Idol" choosing our favorite scrapper to lift a LO. One of my favorite scrapper's is Flergs so I chose to lift her 1st Birthday LO. We did have to include 2 specific things in our LO, flowers and the word dream. This part was a little tricky for me, but I was able to make it work with the following LO. Of course, since I'm new to Flergs's Creative Team, I had to use her Victorian Strawberry kit again since I am totally in love with it.
Our 9th challenge was to create a layout with photos representing multiple generations. The photo I used is one taken in 2005 when my grandmother came to visit us. It is one of my favorite photos of all 4 generations of Wood/Breakiron women. Part of the challenge including using 1 lace element, a metal element, a flower and a vintage element. The kit I chose to work with is Generations by SeAScrApS. I did use Misty Cato's Date Bits to date the layout.
Challenge 10 was a ROADBLOCK/INTERSECTION . This was a collaborative challenge where the person who did not complete the last ROADBLOCK/INTERSECTION. It was my job to interview Patricia, asking at least 5 questions and to create a LO. I chose to ask her about movies. I thought it would be a unique take on the challenge as well as get our Mega Kit at Groovy Scraps, Let's Go to the Movies some "airtime." Part of the challenge was to only use material from 2 designers, so I was able to pick and choose 2 designers from the Mega Kit. I choose to use parts from BiebelScraps and Darhena Design. We were also to pick 2 colors to be our main colors and only accent the LO with other colors. Here's what I came up with for the LO:
And finally, Challenge #11 - If we could ask anyone one question, what would that question be? The catch - we can't answer the question. The LO had to include ONLY one photo and the only journaling/title on the LO could be the question. Of course, just recently, my kids started asking about our lost dog, Sparky, who got out last August. The fact that they still talk about him breaks my heart, so I put together this LO, using Decaon's Closet RELOADED by Flergs.
Challenge 12 is a collab challenge. I've done my part and have sent it to Patricia to finish it. And of course, I'm sure there will be a twist throw into the race tomorrow as we anticipate the end of Season 4.

The 9th challenge was to make a layout with photos representing multiple generations. Here are some photos of my daughter with her grandmothers and great grand mothers. We had to use 1 lace element, a metal element, a flower and a vintage element. The kit I used was called Alta. It is my own kit available at Groovy Scraps. The vase was a photo that I just extracted to use for this layout.

So here we are at Challenges 5 & 6. Challenge 5 was a little difficult for me. Challenge 6 was optional. In fact, I wasn't really supposed to do the LO, but I did. Hehehehe. Of course, I'm not posting my LO in our Team LOs Thread at NDISB so I know I'm safe.
Here's challenge #5. It was hosted at Anita Stergiou Designs. For this challenge, we were to create LO that had no photos but included 3 different and separate frames and some journaling. Here's what I came up with for this challenge. Make sure you click on the LO for full credits.
And Challenge 6 is at Inspiration Lane. It's a ROADBLOCK so only one of us was to complete the challenge. We were challenged to find a LO in our partner's gallery and flip it 90 degrees and then lift it. The only catch was that we were to use the same number of elements - no more, no less as our partner did in her original LO.
Patricia's LO is our official LO
Here's the LO she lifted of mine:
And here's the LO I created while stuck in bed after being hit with a tummy bug. :( Thankfully, we're not using my LO because I don't think I "flipped it" correctly.
Here's the LO I lifted.

Challenge 3 was to redo the first layout we had posted into a gallery. I went through all of my galleries to find a layout I wanted to redo. I couldn't get my EHD to read, which completely freaked me but that is another story, so I picked a layout in which I had photos from on my computer. That left this layout, which is posted here at Scrapper's Zone, to redo. This is a layout of my son's 6th birthday along with his cousin Jacob.

Here are my LOs for Challenges 3 and 4. Remember to click on the LOs for full credits.
Challenge 3 was at Gotta Pixel. For this LO we were asked to take our very first LO posted in a single gallery and scraplift it using what we've learned in our scrapping journey. What's amazing is that created my very first digital LO nearly 3 years ago. Of course, the site that I posted it at is no longer around so I was not able to scraplift that LO. But I did get to scraplift a very sweet LO from 2 1/2 years ago. Here's my original LO:
And my LO for Challenge #4. This one was very difficult for me! Tangie Baxter Creative hosted the challenge and boy was it difficult. We had to create a LO using an "Altered/Artistic Style." And then journal from the soul. The journaling wasn't difficult for me, but the altered style was a bit of a challenge.

Our first challenge was to include in our layout a photo that we "tear" three times. This was a little bit of a challenge for because I don't take many photos that leave room for this sort of cropping. But today, I took a fun photo, and I feel it was perfect for this challenge.
We also were asked to journal on our layouts, so that's what I did.
