Contest and Challenges

Ya just gotta love 'em!  Well, I do at least.  I love the way they spark the mojo.  So here is the story behind the upcoming layout.  I had these three photos picked out.  They are the next in line to complete this '09 album.  (remember previous post about the bug and wanting to finish these photos).  Anyway...had these photos picked out then I came across this PageMaps/Pebbles contest.  I'm not really a contest stalker, but the sketch spoke to me...so why not?

Then, while hanging out at Scrap 'N Chat, one of the members combined about 4 challenges on a layout.  Hmmm....that got me thinking.  I wonder how many challenges I could get on one layout!  LOL!!  Anyway...off I went and completed this layout using the sketch from the contest and 9 challenges from the board.  Oh Yeah!  And I love how it turned out!  The journalling is hidden behind the main photo and reads:

Kelly was excited for the last day of school and summer to start.  She was no so happy bringing all her stuff home.  And none of the neighbors helped her carry it!
