Battle of the Creative Teams - Round #3

Yep, it's that time again - time for me to beg and plead for your votes in the 3rd round of Battle of the Creative Teams! Vote for the Libby Lou Crew HERE before midnight (EDT) Tuesday.

ETA: if you voted last week and you get a message that says "your vote has already been counted" after you vote, you may need to clear your cookies and try again in order for your vote to count. You should get a message that says "Thank You for Voting"

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us last week!! My Girls Just Wanna Have Fun project was selected as the MVP Project (out of somewhere close to 250 projects total!!). That was a HUGE honor, especially for a Hybrid Artist in a contest hugely skewed to digi (I'm one of only 2 hybrid artists participating).

The challenges are getting steadily more difficult, especially when completed as a Hybrid project!! (they were obviously geared strictly towards digi scrappers!!). This week, the challenge was "Scrap By Numbers" and here were our instructions: This week your team must come up with a formula to scrap by. You must use the following numbers 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. You can only use the amount of items in your formula on your layout, no more and no less.

YIKES! right? So here's the formula the Libby Lou Crew agreed on:
10 - staples
9 - papers
8 - stitches
7 - buttons
6 - ribbons
5 - flowers
4 - photos
3 - frames
2 - alphas
1 - font

For my project, I decided to make a wrapped up and pocketed little mini album (I used the FREE Recipe Wrap-Up template by Lauren Meader as inspiration, but altered it to make it work for my needs). I used a not-yet-released digi kit called Pie Are Squared by Libby Weifenbach (avail Saturday Aug 8 at Sweet Shoppe Designs) for the majority of the project. The remaining supply list is at the end of this post. Here are about a gazillion photos of the project (click on each photo to see it larger for detail):
