Playing Catch Up!

Oopsie -- I've gotten a little behind on posting recent layouts... In this entry, I'm sharing the second LO for the {i}NSD weekend challenges, along with two new LOs for the 2nd Annual "7 Days in May" at the Spraground, a week-long event that focuses on a new LO challenge each day.  I played along last year and some of the pages I made for that event are among my favorites :)

So first, here is my entry for the {in}NSD weekend -- this challenge was to do a page based on what the word, "Space" means to us.  Some folks made it about their personal scrapbooking spaces; a couple of pages were about children with the "space" of a missing tooth and others were about the "wide open spaces" of lakes, fields and prairies.  I chose to take a more cosmic, spiritual view...

Features a photo I took of Venus and Mars (and a billion stars!) last year.

Now - here is the little poster/announcement for the 7 Days in May event:

And here are my layouts from days 1 & 2 --

Challenge 1 was to use a large letter that was not part of the title or journaling; we also had to use only one photo and had to have stripes somewhere on the page.  Took this photo of myself holding the communion elements las Sunday at church - didn't have a specific plan in mind for it, but knew it would be useful for SOMEthing!
