Scrap Challenges for the Week

I got some quality scrappy time in this week (woo hoo!) and was able to crank out a few late night layouts for some of my favorite challenges. First up is my layout for last week’s Issue Challenge over at Club CK. The challenge was to use a die cut on a layout. I don’t use these too often, even though I have a lot of them in my stash. I used the cute swirly star I got in a toss a while back and Echo Park papers. I also used some misting to sort of mimic the messiness of a first feeding.

Next is my layout for this week’s Issue Challenge. The challenge was to do a summer layout and use a sun. I was appalled to discover not one single bit of beachy paper in my stash, so I used some of the new Studio Calico papers instead. I think it works:

This next one I just did for fun. It’s for Natalie to document when her XLR8 dance team performed at half time at the AT&T Center for the WNBA Silver Stars game.

The next one I did also just for fun. I was inspired by Kelly Purkey’s “Together” layout in the July/Aug issue of Creating Keepsakes.

And last but not least, my submission for ScrapFit’s Warm Up #29, to use a long title that is a complete sentence or question. I had this hilarious photo of Ashley at my nephew’s birthday party. She took one of the little kids’ mask and cape and we had fun laughing and taking pics. I thought it was a funny twist using the “To the Moon and Back” boys paper by Fancy Pants for a 20 year old girl! Hopefully when she sees this she will appreciate my warped sense of humor 🙂

Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays 5.1…and more!

Good morning everyone! Today is going to be a good day because I finally slept all night! 🙂 This week has been going well so far…yesterday I was thrilled to be chosen as this week’s Featured Artist at Let’s Get Sketchy for my “Spring Cutie” layout (see last week’s post). I also was able to get a layout done yesterday. But before that, here is this week’s reveal for Frosted Designs:

The Sketch:


And here is my layout, again using those awesome Authentique papers:



To play along with this challenge and win a kit from Artful Delight, be sure to complete your project using this sketch and link it up to Frosted Designs.

Sidenote: I am also using that layout as one of the Club CK Issue Challenge entries for March/April. We were challenged to create our own circle embellishment. I pieced together the circle using scraps of this same line of paper and topped it off with the large button in the middle.

Yesterday I completed this layout, also for the March/April CK Issue Challenge round.



We had to create a layout with a button banner. I used some of my MME On the Bright Side papers and a sketch by Diana Fischer. I liked using non-traditional colors and papers for an Easter layout.

Well friends, I am off to start my busy day. The girls have dance class and I promised Sophie I would take her to Build A Bear today as a reward for finally getting rid of that pacifier (or as she likes to call it, her “B”). Stay tuned later this week for the Mother’s Day Blog Hop, which will feature lots of fabulous inspiration for your mother’s day projects!
