Holland, Michigan-Statues

I did this layout with several challenges in mind (a lot for me, but I have seen crafters who enter 16 challenges at once which seems amazing to me).  The first is a new challenge site to me:  Artistic Inspirational Challenge Blog. I just happened to have the perfect photo and paper for this challenge.  The green Glitz Designs background has blue writing (faint).  The strips and inside of the sun were from a piece of paper I've had "forever" so I don't even remember the manufacturer, but it couldn't have been more perfect.  I met all of the bonus requirements on this layout:  1. Sun or sunset = 1pt 2. Shades of blue and green on your layout = 2pts 3. A cut out black silhouette image =3pts.  If you love art and are interested in incorporating ideas from paintings into your layout, I suggest you check out this cool blog challenge site!!  The second challenge was Practical Scrappers challenge to use one photo!  The third is for August Flower Challenge at Scrap Our Stash to make a flower. Mine is a simple spiral flower.  You basically take a circle, cut it into a spiral and then roll it up and glue to hold the flower shape. It is one of my favorite flowers to make as it is so easy to do, and it looks cute! You can roll it as tightly as you want and make the circle as large as you want!!! Easy peasy! Finally, Sketches 4 All
