"S" White With 1

My Creative Team inspiration for the May White With 1 challenge.
This is the 1st layout I created, but after seeing a layout VERY similar with a similar colour palette on Facebook I chose to create another LO for the challenge (Post below).
However I still wanted to share this on my blog.

 I made this card using the leftover pieces.

After seeing a layout by the very talented Heather Jacob on face book in April,
 I actually felt sick and couldn't believe how similar her layout was to this layout I had created for my Creative Team, WW1 May challenge (sounds silly...and it probably wouldn't have worried me so much if it wasn't a layout I had created for my CT work...people on CT/DT  will know what I mean)
Thanks to Heather for her reassuring words that there are so many scrapbookers today,
 lots of different styles and when there is a palette and evidence
 it is difficult to come up with something really different every time.
...she also said..."Please don't worry".... think I need to remember these 3 little words.
It was just a coincidence that these 2 layouts were created at the same time.

I hope I have inspired you to join in with this months challenge at White With 1.

Thanks for stopping by
and a BIG THANK YOU to all those who take the time to leave 
such beautiful comments on my layouts.

Hi Everyone.
I feel a bit sad as I post this Layout today.
This is my last Creative Team layout  for White With 1
I had been playing along for 6 month and I loved the WW1 challenges and when I saw the opportunity to try out for the Creative Team, I really wanted to apply,
 but I must admit I had lots of self doubt thinking my work wasn't good enough...
I left it till the last minute ..still thinking will I, wont I, will I, wont I....send.
I remember the OMG moment when I read the email from Mel to say I had made the team...
 very,very excited and honoured.
.6 months to start with, then another 6 months
yes, I've been on the team for 12 months, where has that time gone. 
I have really enjoyed my time and journey on this amazing team. 
A big thanks to Mel for everything.
I will miss you all.
The May Challenge criteria
White + Black +  Badges/Banners
the badges/banners can be a colour other than Black/White

The team have created some amazing pages this month
click here to be inspired.

Note to anyone thinking or wanting to apply for  a DT or CT,
don't hold back, give it a try, because anything is possible.

Thanks for looking everyone and for always taking the time to leave me some love.
You truly make my day with your amazing comments.

Janice xx
