Battle of the Creative Teams - Round #4

Well, it's FINALLY here!! The 4th and final round of Battle of the Creative Teams! That means this is the last time (and the last chance) I'll be begging for your votes in this fun competition! So, one more time - please vote for the Libby Lou Crew HERE before Midnight (EDT) Tuesday!! Thank you!

I've had so much fun during this competition the last 4 weeks, but I have to admit - I'm so glad it's just about over! It has been A LOT more work than I anticipated and the competition has been stiff!! You can check out my entries for the previous rounds below:
Round 1 - Family Time Organizer
Round 2 - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Round 3 - The Mathematical Cuteness of Dean

This week's Challenge, Inspiration Found, was to Scraplift 2 of our teammates. Each of us was only making one project, but had to take part of one temmate's layout and combine it with a part of another teammate's layout. Once again, this was really tough on me as a hybrid artist - I had to find 2 digi layouts that I could easily (or at least attempt to) carry over onto some sort of hybrid project. The Libby Lou Crew worked together and each of us was lifted twice. I set about the task of browsing through the galleries of Linz and Laurie and decided to lift Linz's Just Us layout and Laurie's Bee-a-utiful layout.

Here's what I came up with:

It's a little "Beach Treasures" Keepsake box for Dean to put all of his little beach finds in - he is always carrying home little treasures in the pockets of his board shorts every time we go to the beach. Of course, I wanted it to match his room so I used the fabulous Jen & Dean kit by Libby (you might remember that Libby used Dean's new bedding as inspiration for this digi kit, so it was the perfect choice for this project!!).

Here are a few more shots of the finished box:

You can check out the rest of my team's beautiful layouts (Laurie even used some super cute photos of Dean on her layout) using the Jen & Dean kit for Round #4 HERE.

And then don't forget to go vote for the Libby Lou Crew HERE!!!

On another note, we had a super fun family outing this morning on a nice little waterfall hike over on the North Shore. If you're interested, you can read about our adventures HERE on our family blog. Have a fabulous week!!
