Treasure Hunt Final Round Layout!!

This is it girls - the end of the contest. I finished my layout and posted it. I thought I would share with you guys. The Challenge
Layout must include:
- one photo or no photo
- TS colors must be included somewhere in the layout (orange and green) (you may use other colors in addition)
- 2 different kinds of alphabet in your title
- 5 buttons exactly
- some kind of ticket (scrapbooking or real)
- journaling including the words "If I could change one thing about myself..." I had such a good time playing with some different techniques. I cut a big piece of cardboard from a shipping box and stripped it. Then I gesso'd it and painted and misted it!
I adore this cherub stamp and was so happy to include it on the layout.Journaling:
If I could change one thing about myself it would be to…
Get rid of the fear.
Be brave. Be real.
Share my thoughts unguarded.
Be a model of confidence.
Stop worrying and LIVE!
Trust in the Lord.Supplies

Bling – Heidi Swapp I am pretty happy with all the layouts I did for this challenge. It has been so fun and challenging. I rarely scrap myself unless I am in a picture with Jamie. But looking deep for emotion and exploring me is not at the top of my list usually. No matter what happens next week - I already feel like a winner, because these layouts would never have been created if I didn't participate. So I already have a pretty cool gift.

This is really fabulous. I LOVE all the dimension and texture! The journal strips are awesome too, how they are at different depths on the page. I completely relate to your comments about not exploring your self in your layouts,'s great when you find the right encouragement.

Thanks again for sharing another awesome layout.

I love everything about that layout!!! There is just so much good stuff going on there.

I'm not surprised that you are in the final three of the Treasure Hunt -- your layouts are always awesome :)

You have done fantastic in that contest. I love the lumpy bumpiness of your LOs and all the different elements you include. There is always so much to look at, yet it doesn't seem "busy". I am always in awe of your work.
