My Scrappy Weekend

The wonderful ladies over at Scrapbook Steals gave us 4 challenges on Thursday, to be completed by Monday at midnight.  I can't believe I actually finished all 4, literally at the stroke of midnight, but I did, not to mention birthday cards for 2 special little boys turning 1 this month.  Here were the challenges and my take on them.


Use this sketch to create a page:

Here is my take on it:


What's Your Secret?  The layout was supposed to be about us and something we don't really go around advertising.  While I don't hide how I met Dan, it isn't something I advertise either.  This was a fun page to do.  I got to use my Cricut and some of my Stampin' Up Shimmer Paint (on the flowers).  This is truly where our story began...


Lucky Me!  This layout was about something in our life we are lucky to have.  We'll I have 2.  1st, of course, is my wonderfully supportive hubby.  And 2nd, is my new toy.  I had to scrap about it.  And yes, Dan did call me a dork for making a page about the camera the day I got it!  :-P


The dreaded NUMBER CHALLENGE!  Everytime we have these challenges, Melodee puts out one of these.  This was the hardest of the 4 challenges, but I'm so glad I got it done.  This was Hailey's first flight, and this page will go into her book.  The journaling is supposed to look like the banners that fly behind planes.  I'm not sure it came out right, but I tried!

We had to include the following things.  And yes, I'm amazed, I got them all there!

10 Metal Embellishments (brads, eyelets, paperclips etc)
9 Inches of Ribbon
8 Letters (chipboard, stickers etc)
7 Non Metal Embellishment (buttons, die cuts etc)
6 Sentences in your journaling
5 Patterned Paper Pieces
4 Solid Paper Pieces
3 Photos
2 Rub On Images
1 Stamped Image

I hope you enjoyed my trip through my crazy 2 days of scrapping.  This might be my last full pages for a few weeks while, but I'll be back to making pages as soon as I can!  Thanks for letting me share.

My Sanity!

Please enjoy a little dose of my sanity.  This site will feature some of my craftiness.  I'm new to blogging, so please be patient with me.
