two in a day

the unpredictable weather and the cloudy skies are not helping my attempts to take better pictures. anyway, here are two lo's i completed for sisterhood of scrap's challenges. for susan's challenge, we were supposed to use a fifties' slang in our title, i chose circled which means married. go figure. as you can see, i have a hangover from my adthis lo and i fell in love with the color scheme and the handmade flowers.
for
carla's challenge, we needed to create an lo using a 12 inch circle, with something black and some bling. i used a scalloped circle, black vinyl thickers for my title and assorted gems and conchos. i tried to remove the flash but my meager photoshop skills are no good.
i also combined this with
method playground's challenge #43 to use magazine clippings or pages in my lo. i created paper flowers using these colorful pages from a wedding magazine i had. i got it free from one of the fairs we attended and my mil already gave me a copy earlier so i didn't hesistate cutting it up. that's it for me. hope the weather cooperates tomorrow. and i will try to take better pictures. :)
