Final Mafia scrap wars week

Scrapranos made it to the final week!! Wooo Hooo GO US!!
The final week challenge was to put a "hit" on another gang member and give them a challenge.

I put a "hit" on Michmc. Her challenge:

Everyone knows what a big Rachael Ray Fan I am and love to see her double duty tips and what an altering fool I can be.So for your challenge ... Alter something you wouldn't normally alter. (must be something very different. hint ... Shop at Lowes ) Alter this item and find a creative use for it. Share your altered item (must post pic before altering and after picture) and share the double duty use.

I was "hit" by Lynda. Her challenge to me:

Your layout must be digital stuff here...You need at least three photos...only one can be colorPhotos have to be both vertical and horizontal in orientation....Your page must have at least one "working" component; so must open, pull get the idea...Your page has to have a one word title...There must be flowers on your page somewhere...afterall it's almost spring...and speaking of Spring...lets see some pastel colors on this baby...I want to see some buttons too....

Week 2 scrap mafia war Myspace ... clueless?

Scrapranos made it through week 1!!
Week 2 we had to create a controversial layout. Click here to read about it.

Many parents have no clue what their teens have or put on their Myspace pages. I was one of them, until I heard on the news the horrible things that were happening with Myspace. They talked about how sex predators were requesting to be friends with teens; they would get to know them and ask to meet. The teen would meet this stranger and boom trouble! The news also talked about internet bulling and how a mom signed up as a teen and bullied her (because she didn't like this teenager) to the point that this teen committed suicide. The news mentioned that porn Myspace pages were going around asking teenage boys to be on their friends list. That's when I said enough and I signed up. I had Jenn help me create my very own Myspace. Once I got my page up and running, I friend requested the kids and took a look at their page. There were a couple of things I had them remove or change. Nothing to big, but I explained my reasoning. I had them take off the town that we lived in and had them put "Somewhere in WV",I also asked about a couple friends that they had and if they didn't know them I had them delete them as their friends.
At one time, all of my friends on my page were my children's friends.
It's too easy now a day for weirdo's to get your child's information. Or request them as a friend and have this stranger tell a bunch of lies about them.
Some parents (and teens) would see this as an invasion of their teen's privacy. I don't, I see it keeping my children safe. (Just for the record, I don't go onto their page everyday)
As you can see all 3 of my teens have a Myspace page. I highlighted my picture with the arrow pointing to it showing that I wasn't clueless anymore. Computers can be a dangerous thing. We are teaching our children that they can't believe everything they read and how to protect themselves while being on their Myspace page.

Scrapstreet challenge The Longest Yard

Saturdays challenge was to find a clipart, a sign, or symbol and use it on your LO. As soon as I read this challenge I knew what I wanted to do. And I got to sit and play yesterday.
Here is what I came up with:

I printed off a picture of the Football Hall of Fame. I picked the black & white pattern paper to pop my picture off the page. Layered the pictures with blue to bring out the blue in the pictures.
Thanks for looking :)
