So tonight was a speed scrap at Digital Candy.
And can I just tell you that is a fun friendly community of scrappers?!?
I really like it over there.

This one was quite challenging to get it done in the hour. But at least we had 2 hours! lol One for instruction/chat, the other for doing the challenge!

1. Choose five papers (1 striped, 1 solid, 1 large graphic print and 2 of your choice).
Choose one of these papers to be the background

2. Choose 2 photos and turn them Black&White. One photo will be the focal photo and the other will be a smaller compliment. Place the focal photo in the middle of the page and the complimentary photo to the left, overlapping the focal photo

3. using your striped paper create a border strip and place to the right of your focal photo.

4. Using your graphic and solid papers, create mats for your photos. Make sure the focal photo mat is large enough that you can add some journaling later on and with your remaining paper create a paper strip to add to your layout.

5. Add some stitching and a piece of ribbon to your page and add whatever other embellishments you would like

6. Create your Title in the lower left hand corner of your page.

7. Add at least 2 sentences of journing to your photo mat. Add your drop shadows, make
final adjustments, and upload to the gallery before 12 midnight EST
