Team MLAS is in the house.......

Okay, so I told you that I was a part of team MLAS and we are participating in The Battle of the Creative Teams at Digiscrap Addicts. is my week 1 submission. Our challenge was to create a page with white space and all five team members had to create LOs with the same color scheme. We went with Black and White, using a Black and White photo. We all did selective coloring on our photo and added a splash of green to make the LO pop.'s my week 1 LO.

I'd love to hear your comments! (If you click on the image it will take you to the gallery at DSA.) Better yet.....check out the Team MLAS thread here. My other team members have some amazing LOs.
