Guest Design Team- From Screen 2 Scrap

Ever done a challenge at screen 2 scrap?
I've done a few and find them lots of fun.
Shazza asked me to take part in the september challenge as their 
Movie extra aka GDT.
If you're unfamilar with screen 2 scrap challenges it's basically using movie posters
as your layout inspiration with some extra criteria thrown in.

Septembers movie poster is the movie Rio! 
the extra criteria are-
For an extra 6 bonus points :)

1) One word title = 1 pt
2) Use Blue, Yellow and Red Cardstock = 2 pts
3) Add a Bird = 3 pts

Now, the bird and the one word title were not a problem.

but let me tell you the red, yellow and blue cardstock proved quite a problem for me!
Normally i use white, Kraft or patterned paper. 
That's why a few months ago i had a huge clean out of all my old papers and
coloured cardstock and either gave them away or replenished my daughters craft drawer.
So of course i had to raid Maggies' supplies (luckily she hasn't noticed yet, hehe).
So what do I do with them now? Well I stamped on them with a script stamp and made
 some grungy looking flowers. 

For the design of my layout I was inspired by the triangular shape of the bird in the movie poster
and used this in the placement of my photo’s. 
I’ve have the felt bird in my stash for ages so that covered the bird criteria, knew it would come in handy one day, it looked a little crazy so it matched the them of
the layout with my son pulling funny faces! 
And lastly my journaling imitated the style in the movie poster.

So if you want to join in this fab challenge head over here and have a look.
the design team have created some great layouts.
