Creative Tuesday

We're having a hot one here in FL. I don't know what happen to Spring?!? I think it only here in the evening. Last night we went for a walk after dinner and it was so beautiful out. Yes, I'm trying to lose weight - I can't use the excuse "It's from being pregnant" anymore - DARN! LOL.
I have my creative juices flowing today I hope I can use them to make alot of projects. I have a few more challenges to do from SC. Some that I started and want to finish.
I working on the challenge posted Marilyn at Scrapbook Challenges. It use a masking technique and some paint or ink on a layout. So, DH took some cute picture of our son dressed up in a pirate hat and eye patch. Our son was singing the song the pirates that don't do anything from Veggie Tales too funny!
Anyway, I decided to make a jolly roger for my mask I drew a skull and cross bones then cut it out with my Fiskars fingertip craft knife (which if you don't have one - you NEED to get one!!! It's so much easier to use).
I think it came out pretty good. Now, later today after I pick up the kids from school I am doing the layout.

I am so happy the we have 3 new design team members on Scrapbook Challenges. Lyndsay, Rowena and Cathy - They are very talented. join us for all the fun there.

I wanted to share Monday's SC sketch and my layout for it.

Just sharing

Some work. I am still working on some layouts.
Here is Mondays sketch for Scrapbook Challenges.

Here is my layout for this sketch. I am not sure that I like it. I guess it didn't come out like what I had in my head. The letters are made from scans from the napkins we used to dry the eggs. They created a tyed dye effect on the napkins. After I printed the scans I traced American Crafts stickers onto the print. I crumbled, folded and sprayed the cardstock with paint.

Now here is another layout I made. I really like this one.

It's Monday

So that mean a new layout to post. Scrapbook Challenges Sketch layout.
Here is the sketch Pamela made.

Here is my layout to go with it. I add a little pastic mesh at the base of the tree for some texture. The tree is made of cork and the leaves are cut from fabric.

Here the title close up. I covered chipboard letters with plastic mesh (reused from the onion bag) and then added some glitter over it.
The birds is made from plastic from scrapbook packing.

Oh the waiting begins....

I sent in my submissions for Scrapbook Circle design team and now the waiting begins. I hope I make it. I spent most of last night wondering if I submitted the best layout or not. After I sent them in - I thought I should of sent in this one oh no that one. But, what's done is done and I hope it was enough.
So, today is a new day and I'm working on a new mini album sort of a Bobunny type of mini album. I have a lot of chipboard so I decided to try making one of my own.

I am also going to make a mini album for one of my neighbors. I want to get her into scrapbooking. This is the way I just know it. Hehe.

Here is a sneak peek of Monday's Sketch layout.

It's Monday!!

I know that I haven't been on in a Looooong time! Life has been real busy and with three kids these things happpen. I even missed a dead line for trying out for a design team. Well, that's my story. LOL Ok Since my last post I've been busy scrapping some pages.

Looking for inspiration. I found some in Bebe (from Scrapbook Challenges) she has a style of her own and she is a new scrapper. Pamela of Scrapbook Challenges is so full of inspiration. I am always wowed by Sookie She's a fellow design team member on Scrapbook Challenges. I've been finding alot of it in the gallery over at the Fiskateers.

I was able to teach my girls along with some of their friends how to make some Easter baskets. I have to say they did a great job. My girls love to craft and scrapbook. This was the first time for their friends and now they are hooked.

Here is today's sketch from Scrapbook Challenges.

This what I did with the sketch. I've had these pictures of my sisters wedding for a while now. Ok almost 12 years now.I made the flower out of heart that I cut using my Fiskar Ultra Shape Express and Heart Template
