Giveaway and challenge close on January 30, 2012

I don't really have a design team, as this is the first time I have tried something like this, but a few lovely friends have offered to share examples of their work.

This is a page I did using The Old World Stack, it is my grandfather when he was a young boy, and then on his 42nd birthday. The baby that he is holding is me at 2 months. The top 2 ribbons are topped with braided craft thread, the hanging clock symbolizes the passage of time.

This is a 2 page 8 1/2X11 LO, It is my hubby's Great Great Great Great... Grandfather, he was an amazing man who was born in Germany, served in 2 regiments in the Civil War, was a member of the first fraternal order to be chartered by congress, The Knights of Pythias.  By 1923 when he died he had been an alter boy in the Grand Cathedral in Cologne, Germany, he had been a Goucho on the Pampas in Argentina, he worked in the Hudson Bay woolen mills in Canada, then lived in New York, Iowa, Illinois, Oregon, and finally California.  From a scrapbooking standpoint the possibilities are endless, unfortunately from a family historians point of view, since he was adopted in Germany, he is what is commonly known as a "Brick Wall".
Paper: Basic Grey Periphery collection
Cartridges: Paper Dolls Dress Up, Graphically Speaking, Going Places
 The Knights of Pythias logo was printed in black and white and colored with my kids crayola markers ;).
(The maximum number of gift certificates to be given out is 15, 
that is a possible total of  $330 in this giveaway) 
Accepting submissions until we reach 150 entries (comments)
