      Supplies needed:
      An older layout that needs an update. You are going to remodel it! All other supplies are completely up to you!

      What you need to do:
      1. Take a picture of your layout for the before picture.
      2. Make FIVE upgrades to your layout. Keep track of them so you can tell us what you did.
      3. Take an after picture.
      4. And, post your before and after pics here!

        Remodeling time! Here's a layout I made with my first Swirlydoos kit. Even though I think it's one of my better layouts from the early days, I think it needs an update!

        [img:width=550&height=550]/wp-content/uploads/2014/1399137352_16_FT238881_may_2014_sd_remodeling_challenge.jpg[/img]

        So, I decided to see what I could to do to spruce it up a bit.

        Here's a list of how I remodeled my layout:
        1. Added more distressing to all the layers, including the circle.
        2. Toned down the white title with some brown chalk ink.
        3. Added some jewels under the title.
        4. Gave the flower cluster a complete overhaul, adding vines and other small flowers.
        5. Added some small flowers next to the title.
        6. Added an extra large layer and used a border punch on the existing bottom layer.
        7. Added a metal coer to the top.

        I am much happier with this one!

        Now let's see what you YOU can do!

          WOW what a cool challenge and love your makeover. The changes really are subtle yet they make a difference! WTG!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                So pretty, going back a few years can be shocking to say the least! I was being lazy and just stacking my lo's on top of my shadowbox frame instead of removing the pic and putting a new one in. Well after finally putting about 6 lo's away, I took the lo in the frame out and nearly died! I had just started fussy cutting, and I was still putting my page titles smack dab on the top and centered! Yeesh what a diff and only about 3 yrs ago!
