Second Challenge: Photobooth Style Photo Strip

First off we are really excited with the response to our first ever challenge here at the Paper Girls Challenge blog. There were some beautiful layouts linked up and we are happy to bring some inspiration to your scrap room.

Our next challenge is to use a photo booth style photo strip on your page. You can use any layout you would like we just want to see what you do with it!

my pages (Erica)
I initially made this page with the challenge in mind. I was dying to use this particular sheet of paper from the Amy Tangerine line ever since I got it.

I have a tendency to obsess over an idea so I thought of another page for you to check out. This one was for a Take 12 page for the Month of January. I was going for a sketchbook type of look.

This last page I did is my Take 12 for February. The first page is a sketch from the talented Kristy Lee at ScrapbookSteals. As you can see all of us are a fan of hers. Sheryl and Judy and I all happened to use this sketch for this challenge. I know when I saw it I thought it was such a perfect coincidence that this was going to be our next challenge.

Now some pages from our team:

And last but not least we have a winner!
