Weekend Warm-up: Challenge #2

I loved everyone’s entries for our fussy-cutting challenge!  The winner of the American Crafts “Love” kit is:


Congratulations!  Alison, email me at tessabuys (at) yahoo (dot) com with all your info and I will pass it on to Lisa.  This is Alison’s layout, using the February 2011 Scrapbook Circle kit:

Now for our new challenge….  Did you see Nicole’s tip for altering your alphas on the blog yesterday?  If not, you should really check it out.  While browsing Nicole’s gallery, I also found this page with altered alphas:

Nicole took the Cosmo Cricket alphas and inked them for a brand new look!  For challenge #2, take Nicole’s lead and alter your alphas!  Use paint, mist, ink, distressing, whatever your creativity inspires you to do.

To enter the challenge:

* Use a past or present Scrapbook Circle kit to create a layout that satisfies the challenge.

* Post the layout to an online gallery, blog, or the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page and leave a link in the comments on this post.

* Comments must be made/entries must be received by Wednesday evening, March 2nd to be eligible for the random prize drawing.

Playing with those alphas could get you this fabulous prize, full of Glitz goodies:

Have fun with the challenge, and Alison – enjoy those goodies!

    Congrats Allison! Love your layout! I love altering alphas. If there is a font I like I buy a bunch in white and then use Copics on them to match whatever color I need 🙂
