Scrap Zones

Back in June, while at a Friday crop my friend and I got talking to one of the other ladies about a new ning site call "The Colour Room", my friend checked it out and decided to challenge myself and two of our other friends that we scrap with each month, to complete a particular "Color Palette" by the time we next scrapped together.... she also included her sister in the US and her niece in the Eastern States in this challenge. Fast forward a few months and we are hooked!

We are having such a great time and are enjoying seeing each others take on the different palettes. One day it was suggested that we should find a name for ourselves so, we each put forward a suggestion and my friend had some work colleagues choose the best one... which turned out to be "Scrap Zones" so named because we are spread across three different time zones. We then all had a photo taken of ourselves sitting at our scrap desk and were then challenged to use palette #3 and the 6 photos. (Wow! What a long intro!)

Here's palette # 3...

And here's my take on it .....

The paper I've used is some old Kaiser I had in my stash, I've then used a mask I cut out on my Cricut and "Dragonfly" glimmermist to spray the corners. I've taken a few liberties with the shade of purple .... but I won't tell if you don't.

This is a close up of the wording...

It's a little hard to read but it says...
2 Countries
3 States
6 Friends
1 Big Obsession

We are going to all post our layouts on the Color Room nign site tomorrow night so that we can try and get them all side by side, so if you want to have a look at what the others did head on over and check out the gallery after about 7pm tomorrow.

Well that's all for now,

Thanks for stopping by,

Kaye :o)
