My Scraps Got Talent II

My Scraps and More currently has a contest running this summer called My Scraps Got Talent II.  There are layout challenges posted each week as well as mini challenges.  I had done a couple of the mini challenges a in the last couple of weeks for some cards, but I finally got around to doing one of the layout challenges.  Challenge #5 was to use the sketch below along with 3 different punches for a layout.

As you can see, I added a couple of photos instead of having a large photo on the left side.  I also played around with the embellishment placement.  For the background, I wanted something subtle, so I used a Crafter's Workshop mask and three colors of Glimmer Mist: Blue Skies, Slate, and Golden Terra Cotta.  To balance the extra photos, I felt the title and journaling should both be moved to the right side of the layout.  As for the three punches, I used a scalloped circle punch, a border punch and a flower punch.  These are the photos I entered in the county fair competition in 2010.  I didn't win any ribbons, but they do look nice together on a scrapbook page!  :)
