So, I actually made it to the final round in the ScrapOrchard design contest. I never expected to make it so far. When I entered, my goal was to make it to round 2. This week, we had to create a whole kit, whatever theme and colors we wanted. Luckily, the deadline was extended from Wednesday night to Friday night - I sure did need the extra time. After struggling last week with the theme, I felt so much more comfortable this week with the kit I made. I did a boyish kit (of course - that's my comfort zone) inspired by my boys playing in our backyard and those maple seeds (we always called 'em helicopters) that are all over the place right now. I hope you all enjoy it.
As alway, be sure to check out the Scrap Orchard week 4 contest gallery to see and download all the other fabulous submissions, and more will be coming throughout the day today. I understand that the links will be taken down after Saturday. Many designers will still have their submissions up on their blogs after that time, but your best bet is to swing by there tomorrow sometime. My links will be active here for awhile.
The download is split into 2 parts.
Backyard Boy Papers
Backyard Boy Elements
PLEASE don't share this link or upload my kit to any filesharing sites. Just send people to my blog to download. And if you use this in a layout, I'd love to take a peek! And thank you so much for your comments - I love reading them!
