Blog Hop Challenge from All About Me and the Practical Scrapper

The Blog Hop Challenge at the All About Me blog is a combination twisty loop!  I had to make a layout describing what "Color" I am.  Then the twist was to Scrap Lift (new term for me!  At least it is legal in this sense! Ha!) one of the DT (Design Team) layouts.

For my layout I chose to Scrap Lift Mette Kallander's layout and use the color brown.

I also used this layout at The Practical Scrapper.  They challenge at their site was to use die cuts.  The letters and some of the embellishments are die cuts.

I did not have the brace/bracket template or paper, so I had to create one and trace with an exacto!  My aching finger....Anyway, I used metallic light brown and that reflected a lot of light in the picture making it hard to see the journaling which says
I am Brown-Digging in the dirt-Earthy-Planting seeds-Baking for my loved ones-Chocolate-Comforting their souls-Warmth in the home-Safety-You can trust me-Feeling the bark of trees-Woodsy-Nature's gentle hue-I am Brown

I used many different scraps of brown paper I had with different textures printed an embossed on them.  I also used Jim Holtz distressed ink in Vintage Photo.  I used various embellishments I had laying around and used my Cricut to cut out the daisies, the single brown slender leaf, and the title words.  I used a Jolee's guitar embellishment and colored the leaves with distress ink, too. I altered my photo using Photoshop Elements 7 with a sepia filter, a diffuse glow filter and adjusting the color to be a more chocolaty-brown.

wow, you did a great job on this one! I really struggled and ended up not doing it. I may go back later and work on it.
