Hey Scrappers,

Congratulations to Darlene Quebedeaux & Heather Banker for 2nd place in the Masterpiece Challenge!!!!!

As I mentioned earlier, the judges had a tough time narrowing down the winners of the challenge and asked that I recognize these layouts as runners-up (the funny part is these 2 girls are best friends & the judges didn't even know that); I have to agree, I'm so glad I didn't have to choose, these top 4 layouts were awesome. I just love the way all of these girls interpreted the sketches & the layouts they came up with. Makes me tickled pink that the Masterpiece Idea Book is so versatile. KUDOS to All of you JoLynn, Traci, Darlene & Heather!!!!!

Love by Heather Banker:
  • Page 10 sketch. Heather twisted this sketch by changing the placement of the embellishments on page 1, by changing the orientation and location of the picture on page 1, and by using a larger picture on the right corner of page 2 instead of picture and emb; The judges raved about the photos, color choices & love that stamp; Any layout with these precious children is a winner! KUDOS Heather!!

For the Love of Food by Darlene Quebedeaux:

  • Page 96 sketch. Darlene rotated the left page one turn to the right. On the right side of the page, she took one picture & cut it up to make a single portrait collage. Journaling also is perfect for the theme of the layout. The judges WISHED they had a sampling of this food--great photos in the layout. The judges LOVED the cricut title and the creative collage was a perfect focal photo and consistent with the theme!! KUDOS Darlene!!

On this Valentine's layout, I didn't use the traditional pink, red, & white colors. When I brought the pictures to the store, I found dark green & maroon to match. But I did keep the theme with the title & the embellishments--all cut with the Cricut. The photo used in the collage was already in the shape of a heart--it was a hugs & kisses brownie.
