We have been in the midst of snow and more snow this week. The girls have been home Jon was stuck in Arkansas. So instead of chores and cleaning (I mean what is the point if the kids are stuck at home?) I have been scrapbooking. Here are two new ones I did this week.
Love this guy uses the February kit (and sketch) from My Creative Scrapbook and combined it with the technique challenge (stamping) from A Cherry on Top.
This one was just cause I wanted to do it. I used Fancy Pants Designs.
Ok I know it is already a week into May, but I have already done a lot. This past weekend was my Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I didn't do the 39.3 miles, BUT I did manage to walk a mere 29 miles, so not bad. And honestly other than a bruised bid toe I feel GREAT.
Anyway, I digress. I am here to share some happy news, I was asked to be the guest creative team member at my favorite on-line store, A Cherry on Top. I got to play with some Jillibean Soup and I am hosting five challenges this month.
Here are my items for my reveal (for the full reveal please click here.
Ana here with my May Spice Kit reveal. Can I just say how much I LOVE
this kit. I am a HUGE fan of distressing and core'dinations, and this
kit came with a distressing tool and dot core'dinations. So fun.
Another of my favorite things is misting and it came with these super
banners that when you mist them they show texture. So cool. Oh, and it
came with mist. Awesome. So here are a few of my layouts and a card.
Ok there you have it. And remember that the May Crowned Contest begins
today, May 1st. So if you haven't already stopped by the forum and
signed up to play, get over there NOW.
To coincide with the crowning of the American Idol winner in May,
Scrapdango is resurrecting the ever-popular Crowned competition!
The weekly challenges are mandatory. You will get a new challenge every
Tuesday. You have until the following Monday at midnight EST to post to
the gallery and link your creation in your sign in!
At the end of each round, each DT member will assign a value 0-10 to
your creation. These values will not be revealed. Each week we will sash
the person that has the favorite creation as voted on by the DT. This
person will receive a prize. (You can only win this 1 time during the
competition) The only way you can be disqualified is to not complete the
challenge within the allotted time.
You can also win points through our weekly games and other surprises! Keep an eye out for them. They will NOT be mandatory!
You'll receive an extra point for each project in which you use a Scrapdango kit.
We will keep track of your points and the person with the most points at
the end of the game will be “CROWNED” queen! The queen will take home
the big prize to be revealed later!
All creations must be newly created for this competition and your
original design. They may not be posted anywhere else other than your
personal blog for the duration of the game. All layouts must be
traditional paper layouts (no digital) and be 8 1/2 x 11 or 12 x 12. You
are welcome to do a single or double layout!
International contestants are welcome, however, if you win any prizes,
you will be given a $6 shipping credit. The remainder will be the
responsibility of the winner.
Hello everyone. Here are two recent layouts I did using sketches from Becky Fleck and Page Maps.
The first is one I did a few weeks ago for a sketch challenge at A Cherry on Top. I used Little Yellow Bicycle, Paradise Collection.
Next is a page I did for a challenge over at Scrapdango. Well not so much a challenge but a game where we each list five things in our stash that do not get used enough and someone challenges us to use one of them. It is called Make Me Use My Stuff. And I was challenged to use my Slice. Well, I finially broke down and got the hands free system for it and now I LOVE my Slice again. I used the Think Pink card to cut the little pink silhouette.
So why don't you come over and play the game with us. I know you have things in your stash that needs to be used again.
