Effer Challenges

I am having SO MUCH fun competing in the Last Scrapper Standing contest on The Effers blog. The layout of Joe (Tough?) is the one I did for the first weeks challenge - all
journaling on a pic. Of course, once Joe saw this layout he rolled his eyes, lol. I LOVE this pic of him that Jen took. I love how you can see his tattoo right beside the stuffie he's holding. It just captures "him" to a T.

This weeks challenge was a little harder for me. We had to use 13 pics on one layout. Wow, what a challenge for someone who is use to showcasing one pic per layout. But this is what I came up with, a sun. And 13 pics of my kids as "beams" coming out from the sun. I sang "You are my sunshine" to my kids when they were babies so I thought this was fitting. Now when I say I worked on this layout for hours I mean it, literally HOURS. I was happy with it but then just wasn't quite sure if it was what they would be lookign for. They said BE CREATIVE and I think this qualifies as creative. I'm pretty happy with it.
