3 Layouts to share...

Is it just me, or do you all get the feeling that things are really starting to speed up this time of the year. Its like there is even fewer hours in the day than usual. Lol! Maybe I'm just trying to fit more into the day that usual.
I do have a couple of layouts to share that I started on the weekend.
The first one is for one of Top 50's monthly challenges. This one was a scraplift challenge set by Sue. We got to scraplift a layout by Treens (one of Top 50's members) and had to include a Kraft cardstock base, smeared paint and a quote. I used a photo of my DD posing with a 'photo' of Steve Irwin at the Australia Zoo. I kept the layout quite simple. Smeared paint isn't normally my thing but I must admit I had fun with this one. Might try it again some time. ;)
The next one is for the September CC at Top 50. The challenge was set by Anthea and we had to base the layout on someone who has misheard or misquoted the lyrics to a song. We had to add some glitter/bling, stitching and use felt or fabric somewhere on the layout.
I've used a photo of my friend Sandra who told me recently that she just loves that new song 'I wanna be a fricken billionaire' and then went on singing it in a totally different tune. Heehee... We still laugh about it.
A close-up to show the stitching, felt flowers, etc.
Another one for the Top 50 CC challenge. This one was set by Vicki and we had to base the layout on the lyrics of an annoying song. The type they always play on the radio over and over again. My DH just hates the Mazda ad on TV, so I thought I would use that as my inspiration. My SIL bought a new Mazda 6 in 2004 and I never got around to scrapping the photos, so this was the perfect opportunity.
Wow, what a long post. Lol! I won't hold it against you if you didn't read it all. I promise it was suppose to be a quick one. :)
I hope you are all having a good week. Thanks for visiting.

You have been a scrapping!! Great LO's! Loving the story with your friend. The Mazda LO is very striking and I love that background paper! Am I the only one that doesn't find that Mazda jingle annoying? My DD's were commenting on how annoying it is the other night because my daughter is looking at buying a Mazda truck. Oh well, better "zoom" off to bed now. ;)
