Just popping in quick to post a few layouts I did over the past couple days. It's the anniversary crop at my LSS and they were celebrating 5 years. Yesterday I was able to scrap with my mom again.. love that. and today was with my regular crop peeps, minus Lea. She is hanging out with her family this weekend.. =)
First up is my layout for "another freaking scrappy challenge". Anne is fabulous and her site is so much fun. Lots of inspiration and wonderful sketches. You should check it out if you haven't already. I've wanted to do many of her challenges, but time constraints didn't allow me until now.
The challenge this time is to scrap about the location and year of your birth, and it had to include some details. I used some fun Echo Park Happy Days, Amy Tangerine fabric paper, 'it takes two' stickers based on my birth year of 1970, and various other embellies... this was so much fun, really. =)
oh, and I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays 9.1.
And then I did a new challenge site, new to me but it's been around a while and it intrigues me. It's called White plus One. The color this time was pink and then you had to journal on your picture. this is my cousin and her sweet little girl. Used American Crafts, Hello Sunshine and various embellies.. =)
Used the August 30th sketch from Sketchabilities.
and then I did a layout based on the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch. You had use the year as your title and do two lines of journaling on why it was memorable. Used the new MME Lost and Found 2 line. A pic of me and all the ladies who cropped at the NSD crop in 2009.
Then, I wrapped up the last couple days with a few other random layouts. No challenges to submit for, but they were fun.
the pic isn't the best but it's of the lemonade stand at the festival I went to this summer. .LYB sweet summertime line.
my little great niece... used some new Harmony paper that my LSS owner gave me. it's so stinking cute. I love it!!! and I need more of this manufacturer. =) Julie T-W, I used the very last of that trim you sent me.. I loved using it and it was well loved. Thank you so much again. I think it was used on at least a half dozen layouts. =)
and last but not least a layout based on an older sketch from pencil lines. It's my hubby and my aunt during family reunion week. I'm not lovin this one for some reason.. seems to be missing something. ya ever get that feeling??? maybe I should have used mist.. lol.. =) Used my Studio Calico kit, Boardwalk.
So, that's about it for now.. I will be posting the first mini stash challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous for our birthday month on Sept. 5th. Lea and I changed days... so, come by and see what the main challenge is about.. lots of fun this month. =)
