Battle of the CTs - Week 2... We need your votes!!

Round 2 of the Battle of the CTs over at DigiScrap Addicts is now complete! This round was so much fun - the task was called "I've Got Rhythm" and our layouts had to have a musical theme - all five of our teams' layouts had to have the same theme, too! So, my team decided to use a Celine Dion song called "If I Could." We each took a verse of the song that we felt applied to us, included the coda somewhere on the page, and scrapped photos of our children. Then, we each wrote some heartfelt journaling to our kids and told them what the verse from the song meant to us. Our team pages came out AWESOME!! Here is a look at each of them:

Please Go Vote!! (and a freebie)...

Did you know that I am competing, along with four other fabulous chicks, in the Battle of the CTs at Digiscrap Addicts? That's right, I am! I am one member of the fab 5 team known as "Trixie's Scrap Stars!" We're having so much fun competing together!

This week, our challenge was to create a white-space layout with a common color theme. We could also optionally choose a common page theme, as well. So, the girls and I got together and we decided to use Trixie Scraps' mini kit, Sarah's Song, for our layouts. We also decided to do a common theme and we all put together an "ABC About Me" page - they turned out GREAT!! Here's a look at each of our layouts:

Now, there is a HUGE prize at the end of the DSA Battle of the CTs, and the way you win is by winning the public vote. All the votes are added together, each week for four weeks, and the team with the most votes at the end WINS a huge pack of coupons from all the participating designer sponsors. Needless to say, I'd LOVE to win this prize, so I'm begging for votes! Would you please head to the DSA forum and vote for us? You don't have to be a member of the community to vote - just head over, find Trixie's Scrap Stars on the designer team list and click VOTE!!
