Yup! I was able to get a few layouts done during my crazy busy weekend. I was busy with football game, band competition, shopping for trip... not to mention mantaining the househ0ld duties too!! BUT, I couldn't stay away from my scrap room!! So here we go....
I have been dying to use this paper by Prima. I have seen so many layouts that were just phenomenal that I just didn't want to mess it up! But I found a sketch from The Scrappiest (#86) that inspired me to use it -->
This Layout is for a new challenge blog called Get Picky. This is inspired by sketch #1 -->
This layout here is for Scrapbook Challenges sketch #223. I realized it looks alot like another LO i did a few months ago... I think its because I used the other half of the Webster Pages Die Cut paper! -->
That's all for now! Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
Sisterhood of Scrap had some very fun games and challenges throughout their online Slumber Party last weekend. I had alot of fun playing along with them.... I even won the Word Search game and the RAK game! Here are the challenges I did during the slumber party....
The first challenge was to do a layout of your BFF--> Since boys are usually talked about during slumber parties, The challenge was to make a layout with 3 photos and just boys-->
What is a slumber party without Giggles? This challenge was do make a card using "inches" and the word Giggle-->
The next challenge was to create a layout with homemade flowers and use feathers--> The last challenge I participated in was a layout about a THING we could not live without. Mine was Mt. Dew :) ---> (layout is also inspired by sketch#85 at The Scrappiest Blog.) That's it for the Slumber Party Challenges.
I made this "Carve" Door Hanger to share with you today. I bought this wooden door hanger from Micheals a few years ago. I finally used it! I painted the edges, added paper and embellishments and topped it off with ribbon and waa-la!!! I hope you like it. :)

Lastly, this layout isn't to any challenges. Honestly, it was off a sketch that I "tried" to make. LOL I realized later it was almost exactly like the last sketch I made. I guess I have to get a little more creative!! LOL
Hello Ladies! Sketch #57 is up on Let's Capture These Sketches and it's my final week as guest designer! It was a wonderful experience, I had fun and and so excited to be part of a team with such great talent! Please hop over to their blog and get inspired! :) Here is my layout: And here is sketch #57:Happy Scrapping!
I never post my frustrations, but I have had one of those days when every LO I have done, I messed up! I know there is "no" mistakes in scrapping... but when you spell the title wrong.. and outline it in pen... ummmm... It's kind of hard to fix it! Even when I did, it still was a sucky layout to me. Oh don't let me forget the original LO took me forever because my sewing machine was acting up and I decided to try to fix it myself! I ended up with three different stitches (one with no thread)! Anyway, The original was soo much better. (I will post a picture of it when the paint drys! LOL)
Or what about when you are almost down with a layout and realized that the main page is upside down, when you have already stamp on the layout? Yup, that was last night, after i broke my glass mat!
"Let's get "Back to the Basics". To the days when there where very few Patterned Papers and embellishments for our Scrapbook Pages.The challenge for you, is to create a lo using no PP only cardstock!You may use any hardware you would like, ribbon or fibers.Any flowers or other embellishments must not be premade. You may use stamps to help you along"Challenge here
Do you know how that was? LOL It was extremely hard for me, however, it did make me go through my stuff and use items that I have not in a while! So this was a great challenge
Here is my LO:
Here is the close up on the flower:
So NO Patterned Paper! Just American Craft cardstock, Glimmer Mist and Tattered Angels mask. I also used my Cricut for the title (instead of always using Thickers!), I made the flower with 3 different ribbon/lace that I had. For the hearts, I punched, stamped, inked and misted.
In addition to the sketch, the challenge also is to add a journal block or stamp on the layout. Here is my take on it (I'm guest designer for this week!) -So go over to http://www.letscapturethesesketches.blogspot.com/ and post your layout to have a chance to win a prize from MyStampBox!
