A last minute entry from......

Peggy Schenkels - Just 2 adults having a baby

I immediately fell in love with the poster, so much so, that I decided to just copy it. I mean, the orange stripes, the green title, the goofy couple LOL, it was just too awesome too change it.These are my mom and dad when my mom was pregnant with me back in december 1971. My dad was acting silly again, like I was able to witness myself for many times to come once I was born LOL. I decided to give the LO a humourous touch and add some silly journaling and a silly title. For one reason or another, I had "responsible young drivers" in my head ... Hence the title. I love theLO, my parents love it (yes, even my dad), so thanks for another great challenge Shazz!
Xxx Peggy

Thanks for your entry Peggy! Its come up a treat :) the colors like the poster are just awesome!
You've done a great job of this challenge.... I love your parents and even your 'funny dad'...what was he doing lol or better still........what was he thinking lol. Great page, I love it! - Cheers Shazza

And Peggy thanks to your entry we have reached a milestone this month of 30 entries.... our best ever participation rate :) you have made my day :)

Could all DT members please add this entry to their list when voting -
Thanks Shazza

Hi Shazza,
Hereby I send you my layout for the JUNO challenge.
I earlier left a comment with a link to my layout in the commentsection of the JUNO challenge...
I guess that was'nt what I'd supposed to do....
I'm new here and it's my first entry to one of your challenges...
I LOVED this challenge and made this collage about it.
Lots of cuttingwork out of old magazines and lots of doodles.
I hope I'm still in time for this challenge and I hope you will like my take on it!!!
Love from Holland, Lena

Lena!! You just made it in time Woohoo!! and I'm so glad you got your entry in. This is an excellent collage,
beautifully done. You have covered all the criteria which is great. your doodles work really well with this piece :)
It really is eye catching. Well done!!

Jusst in time....A last minute entry from......

Melinda Johns - Many faces of me

Hi Shazza,
I almost forgot to upload I finished this 2 weeks ago and
I love the poster and have used stripes on my page,
these photos are of
my daughter approx 3 - 4 months old
and she sat there and pulled so many
funny faces I had to
get them on camera, I even got one of her pre
I had so much fun looking through her baby photos I am yet
scrap any of them.:o(

I used stamps to make the work Faces of Me, the word many
didn't want to
fit, so I had drew the similar version of
the stamps to make the work many.

I know it is a shocking photo I will try to get an outside
one tomorrow
or Tuesday and you can replace it if you wish
my flash doesn't like
being inside at night.

Regards Melinda

Melinda!! woohoo!!! just in timefor the challenge. I love
this page and oh!!
so many faces from your darling little
girl!!! they are just beautiful,
but would be great if
you could send another photo without the flash.

Great work and glad you made it in time. Cheers shazza

Could all DT's please add this to your list for voting!
Thanks Shazza
