Randomly, later in the week... my comment was chosen!! I won't repeat it. It was a little dorky of me :) You can always check the link though...
The challenge said that the layout did not have to be a Halloween page, and since I didn't have any MME Halloween papers, I was very thankful!
I decided to use a birthday photo of Miss I that I had been saving for just the perfect occasion! I also finally (I mean, really... I bought these papers before she was even born!!) used my Pretty as a Princess paper from the Bohemia2 line!! The larger circles are from the BellaBella line, I think it is called Bellezo. The smaller circles are from some die cuts also from the BellaBella line. The transfer title is "Birthday Girl". I chose not to include the blue stars though. I also placed that on the back of one of the die cuts from the Life Stories line. I liked the color... but the line that were on the front weren't the look I was going for. I saw the crowns at a random LSS, and knew what paper (the MME, of course!) I wanted to use them with, but never got the inspiration until now.
I distressed all of the edges, to add more texture. I also popped up the smaller die cut circles to give the page a little more volume.
I'm actually very pleased with the result!! It not only met the challenge requirements... But I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks MME!!

I decided to turn all of these fantastic layout designs into a calendar. Seems easy, right??? It's so not. I think I spent about four hours, six weeks ago, figuring out which double sided paper, matched the month before or after it. Oh yeah... four hours!!! You'd think that picking 13 pieces of paper would be easier. I mixed lines and styles, as well as colors... This allowed for various embellishments to be used, as well as different kinds of photos displayed!!
Since I decided that I was going to use the MWM's for the layouts in the calendars, the color choices were already decided for me. Sometimes, the MWM used for the specific month, was solely because the base paper layer was already "outlined", or patterned in a way that fit for that month.
This was a huge undertaking! I admit... I was trying to get this done for the orignal date for the Diamond Club... but it just didn't happen. Work, the baby, the husband, life, just got in the way.
Like heck! I'm missing the Marquis/Platinum/Double Diamond (that was totally a ski term, wasn't it??)/whatever gem it's called... club!! I'm in it, to win it, baby!!!!
