MDC Art Inspiration Challenge & Fun Announcement!

It's time for another Mothers and Daughters scrapbook challenge!

I have a really fun announcement to share with you, but FIRST I want to share this week's challenge! This week we're having an inspiration challenge based on ad art... all you need to do to join in is find a magazine ad that is NOT related to scrapbooking and use it as inspiration for your layout!

Here is my layout inspired by this challenge, as well as the 3rd challenge for the Urban Anthology Design Star Contest! We needed to think "green" for this challenge. I used an old CD, which I covered with patterned paper & added it to my layout for dimension. I also used a seed pack from the seeds my daughters help plant, and stick pin that I've had since I was a young girl.

I used sei's Dill Blossom collection for the base of my layout.

I was inspired by turning this ad sideways. :)

And now for the fun announcement from the MDC Challenge Blog...

Our very own designer, Cathy Weider has organized MDC's very first blog roll! This will begin April 30th and will culminate on Mother's Day with a gallery of entries from designers and visitors alike. The theme, Mothers and Daughters Traditions, promises a bouquet of fabulous projects - cards, scrap book designs, gift and packaging ideas, altered projects, and much, much more.

Beginning on Thursday, April 30th, grab your cup of tea or coffee and a sweet roll and join us for our daily posts. We'll share fabulous projects, memories, and recipes, inspirational ideas for journaling scrap book pages and writing personalized messages for cards, and the secret language of flowers. Create a card or a treasure box, embellish a picture mat or a scrap book page, test your knowlege of trivia, or simply share a memory and you could win some of the fabulous blog candy we'll be offering each day. Sweet! Be sure to keep posted for further details!

And here is one more layout I wanted to share that I created for challenge #2 for the Urban Anthology Design Star Challenge.

These are the only two photos I have of my grandmother with my 2nd daughter, Emily. It is the one & only time she got to meet her before she passed away. I've had these photos for nearly 13 years, and have finally been able to sit and journal my feelings. TFL!

I used the Making Memories Animal Crackers collection, a mix of Prima flowers & Bazzil chipboard letters & flourish.

Have A Wonderful Day!!

Robin, LOVE your layouts! Love the photos especially, but your designs as well! LOVE the photo of your daughters hands with (I'm guessing) a parent? Beautiful, and LOVE the photos and how special, to have even 2 of your grandmother with your daughter? Very nice!
