I WON!!!

the Scrap Idol contest is over and I WON! i'm really excited. i went today and picked up my prize basket. very nice product and great scrapbooking t-shirts (along with a great basket)!! the challenge of this contest was great motivation for me to get some scrapping done. i really need to try and stay on task the next couple months with my gardening and scrapbooking. i always feel so much better at the end of the day knowing that i have accomplished a task. off to the nursey now to buy some vegetable plants!

Final Round

TOP 3!!! woohoo! i made it to the end. this challenge(s) should be fun! i have to create an altered item from Kaiser Craft (any project and with any papers & embellsihments) AND a LO using Fancy Pants paper and 2 photos! the altered item was very time consuming but i managed to get it done and i really like the end result. i made a cupcake book detailing benny's birthday party! monster party complete with monster paper from Daisy D! For the LO i really liked the flower embellishment i created from the fancy pants papers. here's hoping i am the winner!

Round 3

another round...YEAH! here is the layout that i completed for this round of Scarp Idol. the requirements are getting tougher and so is the competition. i had to use: a Prima Calendar Stamp, a Jenny Bowlin journaling spot, a white Sigma pen, a large circle, and one 5 x 7 photo double matted! WOW! the funniest part of it was after i decided on my paper, i needed a photo so i staged my son with a popsicle in the exact shade of my paper! what do you think? crazy...i know!
