Wow, I have been busy scrapping! Over at Scrapbook Heaven we are having a "Love, Love Me Do!" Online Sketch Crop and boy they are good ones. Of course there are still the regular challenges happening at WeScrap not to mention that the "Your Crop, Your Way" is still going on over at SOS, plus they still have their regular challenges happening. I am trying to keep up but it really isnt happening LOL
I am off for a couple of days so I hope that will get me all caught up. I have managed to double up on a couple of the challenges.
Last night into this morning we got walloped with a snowstorm to beat all snow storms, by the time it was over we had over a foot of snow on the grown. It was wet heavy stuff and there was no way that Alan could shovel it so I called in the plow. His timing was perfect, he showed up just as we were getting in the van for Alan to drive me to work. So he pulled in behind us and dragged the snow out of the driveway so we didnt have to plow through it with the van.. very kind of him and it made it much easier for us to get out. I was kinda worried about trying to get through it. Driving to work was a nightmare.. the side streets were nothing short of dangerous, but the main roads were bare.
Anyhoo.. on to the challenges..
First sketch and challenge:The challenge is to use all PATTERNED PAPER EXCEPT to mat your photos if you choose....but NO SOLID CARDSTOCK except to mat for this one! Have fun!
I used Cosmos Cricket papers, circa 1934 papers. Bling from the dollar store, flowers are Prima and Petaloos, Family Ties is from Pebbles.
Next up was:.remember wire??? I know you have some somewhere in your stash...so if you choose to do the challenge I want you to use WIRE on your layout somewhere! Have fun!
I used BGs Hopscotch papers. I used a metal butterfly from the dollar store and sprayed it with Glimmer mist for my butterfly and used wire for the feelers. The blue alphas I have had for years and have no idea what they are. The pink alphas are Chatterbox. Ribbon is unknown.
Challenge #3 came from Carla: My CHALLENGE is to use at least one heart on your layout. This can be patterned paper, a heart-shaped button or brad, misted heart, sewn heart -- your choice!
For this challenge I used BGs Oliver line paper.
Challenge #4 was:For this challenge, use at least 10 circles on your layout. Be creative with this :-) It can be a masked circle, a circle embellishment, buttons, etc.
I used BGs Oliver line Papers for this challenge.. Funny I never used to like Basic Grey papers before but lately it seems to be what I use most.
Sketch #5 and challenge:My challenge is to scrapbook a party or event. And let's see some doodling!
This one I combined with Heathers Feb 21st challenge at WeScrap, it was to use a banner but not the usual triangles. I doodled some teacups because the party was a tea party. I used Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate papers on this page.
Sketch and challenge #7: The Challenge: Time to get naughty with a little strip tease! Gather up your strips of scrap paper, glue or stitch them together and cut them into a shape to use on your layout.
This one was fun to do, I just drew the tree and cut it out and then layered the strips of paper on it. Since they were just scraps I have no idea what lines they are. I also combined this one with a challenge from WeScrap.. Sues Feb 16th challenge to do a layout about a bouquet of flowers we had received.
I still have Sketches 6 & 8 left to do at Scrapbook Heaven before the 24th, February 19th sketchy saturday at WeScrap and three challenges from SOS still to do before the end of the month.. like the little train, I think I can, I think I can... I know I can..
