sharing everything {march madness round 1}

hello scrappy friends!

today i need YOUR vote!

as i announced in the beginning of the month there is a new game going on at SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES - the MARCH MADNESS

round 1 was this week - the challenge was to create a layout with all 10 elements from the first 10 letters of your first and middle name {for more information on how it works, click HERE}.

the list i've got, based on the first 10 letters from my first and middle name was:
E - envelop
M - monogram
I - ink
L - lace
I - ink
A - acrylic paint
E - envelop
M - monogram
I - ink
L - lace

and here is what i cooked up with these ingredients -


i really like the way this layout turned out. on the pictures are THEO and ELISE. both of them are around 1 year and few months old and theo's is wearing elise's dungaree shorts:-)

i just LOVE those pictures!

i used PRIMA marketing "so cute" collections and various flowers and embellishments. the edges of the blue and white cardstock are punched with martha stewart edge punches "cherish" and "pansy".

from my "name recipe" i used two envelopes - pink and blue, which i tucked under the pictures. i'll use them to keep the first lock of hair of my babies:

the lace - four different types - is attached to the envelopes, so i can easily pull them out.

i used three different colours ink - TIM HOLTZ' tea dye distress ink {on the edges of the blue cardstock and to to stamp the bricky background}, colorbox pink and blue {on the pansies, around the name tags}

the monograms are the first letters from ELISE and Theo's names.

i used pink and blue acrylic paint to colour some of the bricks:

and now i need your VOTE! you have until tomorrow to vote for me, HERE, so i can move on to the next round.

hugs 'n smiles,
