Task 14 Done:

I picked Jane in N.Z.'s Thurs Jiffy Challenge. I really loved the colors and the whimsical feel. The black and white embellishments add a nice twist to the whole piece. The result from scraplifted LO is this: Summer. Instead of using a traditional scatter, I made my alpha the scatter. Instead of using the high contrast of black and white on the bottom of the page, I deconstructed that contrast and linear movement using the stylized photo to mimic that contrasty feel at the top of the page, then brought the contrast down subtly (or with subtle intent) down through the layering of the elements, finally onto the paper.

I pained myself over what to add to make this uniquely mine, but like Jenna, I have to say if I added something it would detract from the LO. Since the general principle I was working with was that scraplifting is taking an idea and expressing it on your own unique way, I think my LO screams uniquely "me" (I color outside the lines-- LOL).

Task 10 Done

I picked Armi Custodio. She seems to gravitate towards such bright, happy colors while balancing whimsy and thoughtfulness in her LOs (as well as kits), which I love. She definitely a mom and it clear that she helps her kids explore outside the world outside their comfort zone to add a little color in their life. I really get inspired by her LOs!
