Lets Scrap Challenge 122

The DESIGN TEAM CHALLENGE at Let's Scrap this week is to create a GREY Monochromatic layout.

Wow, it is hard to find grey papers! I ended up using a mix match of all papers I had lying around. Also found a cool sheet of Tim Holtz Papers with these awesome moths / butterflies on in grey, so thought they were perfect for this layout.

The only photos I could find that were "grey" were of my mom when she was a young mom ... she was so beautiful (still is..).. the quote was from Kaisercraft "Only a life lived for others, is a life worth living".. this quote is just so appropriate to my mom as she lives her live for her family, her kids, her pets, for everyone ! She is the most giving person I know and has a heart of gold to match.

I am very happy with how my layout came out and think it does my mom justice..

I used this sketch from Let's Scrap... this is only the left side of the sketch.
Close ups of the moths and swirly bits...

I was lucky enough to find some grey half pearls in my stash, and they worked well with this layout:

My mom's name is Rosemary.. a real beauty if ever there was one.

You have a week to submit your layout for this challenge. Check out the details HERE.

Thanks for looking,

Hugs, Mich


  1. Michelle, this layout is absolutely gorgeous--in so many ways. Indeed, your mother is a real "looker," as they said years ago. Your butterflies and the way you positioned them give a real "artsy" feel to this layout! Sweet that you discretely included your mother's name. So glad I came here to see all the depth and dimension that is not always visible in the "flat." Thanks for taking my challenge!!

  2. Beautiful layout Michelle, as always.

  3. Michelle, congrats on being selected the winner of the Let's Scrap Design Team Challenge(122) with this gorgeous layout honoring your mother! Great work!

  4. Congratulations on the Let's Scrap win Michelle, this is truly beautiful
