INSD Challenge Layouts, and the games continue!

I was able to participate in both challenges at this weekend. They were a little different from the regular weekly challenges in that both had time limits involved.  Let me tell you: scrapping with a baby in your lap makes tasks take so much longer than they should!  I was able to finish both in time, but resorted to using a template for the 30 minute challenge because I knew I wouldn't finish in time otherwise. 

The first layout had a 60-minute time limit and was about everyday miracles.  In my house, leaving on time in the morning is definitely a miracle!  (Supplies used: all papers, journaling block and silver sparkles from Songbird Avenue's April 2010 kit "Soar High".

The second layout had a 30 minute time limit. I did use a template, but added another strip of paper to the background because I felt it needed the extra pattern.  My scrap space has changed drastically over the years, from card tables and random shelving in a corner of the basement, to a corner of the living room with modular furniture, to the same modular cubes in the guest room, to both the guest room set-up and a TV tray in the family room with my computer and EHD.  I pretty much work wherever I can find the space!  The thing I love about this layout is that I used a brand-new-to-me kit that I purchase earlier yesterday for my son's first year album.  You would never guess from this layout that the kit is called "Bouncing Baby Boy"!

In other news, the challenges continue at all this week.  Seven Days in May kicks off tomorrow with a new challenge posted everyday. I can't wait.  I have created pages about things I never would have recorded without the inspiration from these challenges.  Come take a look this week, and join in if you are inspired too!

Here's to hoping I can get some more scrapping in today...those two layouts above are all I have finished this weekend, though I have downloaded, unzipped, and tagged many new files!
