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

Happy Valentine's Day

I need to finish getting my little projects done for tomorrow. I really enjoy doing Love projects. I did do some scrapping - which has made me happy since I was in a funk. I really like the way these layouts came out. I think I have to check my camera. I am not sure why some of these came out so dark. Ok, so here are the pages. Most of them I made for the SCDT using the Scrapbook Challenges Sketches. I am very excited that as a Design team member I recieved a set of stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps
KSS- Pretty Petals

for this months creations. I used them on the layout Love makes little things grow and on All you need is Love layout.

All you need is Love
All you need is love

Long Time

It's been a long time since I stopped by and blogged. Life has been so busy lately. I am so happy to say that I was asked to stay on the Scrapbook Challenges Design Team for another term. I'm starting to get my creative juices flowing again. They left me for a bit. But, I feel like things are inspiring me again.

I hope to start posting some fun things again. I currently working on a few things at once. I am moving the Scrappy Chix MSN group to another forum and I am trying to complete a few challenges post on Scrapbook Challenges. These ladies are so inspirational and creative.

Christmas is almost here!!!

I have to get going on my projects. I did some today which I hope to post later. I have to come up with an easy card for my son to make for his class exchange. His teacher decided that this year all the kids would make a card for each student in the class and have a card exchange. I like the idea I just need some thing a 7 yr. old can do and make 20 of them. I have one idea I just need to see how hard it is for him to do. So, Are you doing a card exchange?

I'm excited about the online crop Fiskateers is having this weekend. I hope that you can join in on all the fun. I have to clear my desk so that I can join in on the fun too.

I'll post more in a bit. Enjoy the day!
