Happy Halloween! This week’s challenge at Challenge Me Happy is a color challenge. Here is the color combination that we were challenged to work with:
This was really a challenge for me, as we were asked to use only minimal amounts of black and white as an accent. This is what I came up with. It’s pretty minimalist, which is not really my style. But I like to try new things sometimes. I can’t say that this is my favorite layout ever, but I do like all of the “white space”.
Well, that’s all I have for now. Don’t forget to create your project or layout using the color combination and link up to Challenge Me Happy for a chance to win 3 meters of twine, of every single color from The Twinery!!I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

Good morning everyone! I got to make this snappy, as my daughter is going to be in a parade this morning and we have to leave soon. I wanted to share with you my layout for this week’s challenge at Frosted Designs. Our challenge this week is to use embossing on your project. I bought a Cuttlebug several months ago with every intention of trying to use it, but I just hadn’t got around to it. I’m glad this challenge came up since it gave me the opportunity to see what this neat little machine can do!
Here is my layout:
And a close up of the embossing:
Supplies used-Patterned paper, stickers: Echo Park; Pen: K&Co; Rub Ons: Pink Paislee; Alphas: StickO (I think!)
Be sure to link up your embossing project to Frosted Designs for the chance to win a beautiful kit from My Little Shoebox!

Hi everyone! I am here with my very first reveal for Challenge Me Happy. Our challenge was to create our own embellishment. I don’t do this too often, but I really enjoyed this one. I made some fun pinwheels out of leftover pieces of coordinating PP. The pictures are of two of my daughters, Natalie and Sophie, dancing on the shores of Lake Michigan while on vacation this summer.
Supplies used-Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny, unknown from stash; Sticker: Stick-O; Punch: EK Success, Stampin Up; Washi Tape: Up and Up; brads: The Paper Studio; Pen: American Crafts
Make sure you stop by Challenge Me Happy and check out their fun challenges. You can also link up your project to win a guest DT spot on the blog for Challenge #32!

Soooo……I have had this huge envelope of pictures sitting on the corner of my scrap desk for the last few months. I’ve slowly been working my way through them, carefully skipping over the dreaded Christmas pics. I don’t know why this is…I love Christmas–very much!! But scrapping Christmas…well, I just can’t get very excited about that for some reason. These layouts weren’t done for any particular challenges or anything, just my personal challenge to myself to finally get these done.
Weston’s first Christmas:
Supplies used-Patterned papers:Echo Park, Stickers:Echo Park, Pen: American Crafts
Next up is Natalie’s Layout:
Supplies used-Patterned paper:Echo Park, Borders and stickers: Echo Park, Pen: American Crafts
And Macie’s Layout:
Supplies used-Patterned Paper: Recollections, Washi Tape: K&Co, Stickers: Echo Park, Pen: American Crafts
All I have left is Ashley’s and Sophie’s layouts!! It may seem crazy to do a layout for each kid (especially since I have 5), but I like for them to have their own special holiday pages for their own books. It’s more work, but I think they will appreciate it later 🙂
I will be back later this week with my latest 2 Issue Challenge layouts, and then next week my first reveal for Challenge Me Happy!

Just stopping in quickly to share my layout this week. My first layout is doing double duty. It is for the Issue Challenge at Club CK (use a clock) as well as Let’s Get Sketchy. I loved their sketch this week! This layout was also kind of a personal challenge to myself to use up old stuff in my stash. I’m really making an effort to do this more often. I have an obscene amount of paper LOL
Supplies used: Patterned paper-unknown from stash, maybe Basic Grey? and Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby; Stickers: unknown from stash, K& Co.; Alphas: American Crafts; Washi Tape-Queen and Company; Punch: Recollections
The second layout I want to share is for Scrapfit’s Workout #74, a sketch from Diana. This was a pretty simple sketch and wanted to keep my layout that way as well.
Supplies used: Patterned paper-American Crafts; Washi Tape-K&Co; Pen-American Crafts; Punch: EK Success; Mist: Dylusions; Alphas: American Crafts
Enjoy your weekend! I will be back soon with some exciting news….. 🙂
