Scrapping Out Loud blog challenge

So DIstressed Out! challenge
Distressing is so hot right now in the scrapbooking world, and it's so much more fun than stressing! So how about using some distressing on this weeks LO! That's right, we'd like to see your LO with some distressing somewhere, could be a lot could be a little!
My layout is based on a sketch they provided.

Mix It Up Blog - Mixer #25

Mixer #25 was a color challenge -
You had to create a monochromatic layout
with the color white!
At first I thought this was going to be
very tough but as I started looking
through my stuff I was finding the
perfect goodies to use. I am VERY pleased with
this LO. I love it. I may even frame it
and hang it up. lol
The picture does not show it really well
but there is journaling on the strips.
It is very overcast and dreary here today so it
is hard to get a good picture. It looks so
much better IRL. ( You can click on the
picture for a close up)
My layout is based on a sketch they provided as well.

Put you in a cast challenge.
For this challenge you had to do
paper casting. A very cool technique
and my first time trying.
Fabulous instructions here.
My butterfly is a paper cast!
I'm not 100% happy with it but
I plan to try it again. :)
My layout is also based on a sketch provided.

A birthday card for my grandmother,
who is turing 90 tomorrow. :)
I decided to give the Tri-fold card a try.
