wow! only the 3rd post of the year!!!

WOW!

i knew it had been a while since i posted on here, but only 3 times this year...is getting a little ridiculous! it is fun to look back at the entries (even if i have to look at last year's...big slacker!) i have to remind myself of that and post some more of my personal memories!
well, i am trying once again to get back at it and get some of the photos on paper and get some of those stamps and great new product lines into use! i entered a little challenge on the Columbus Scrappers website, no pressure-just challenges. each week they are posting the standards and going from there with a judging of sorts (points for meeting the criteria).

week 1 challenge:

criteria: use 2 photos; use 23 buttons; use a color scheme of red, yellow, and blue; use 2 types of ribbon; doodle on the page in 3 places; use the words "I'm not" in the title; and finally some thread
here's my LO:




week 2 challenge:

didn't even get to try my new Glimmer Mist. went to the store, bought the goodies, and ran out of time to complete this week's challenge! oh well, there's always next week!


week 3 challenge:
criteria: use a sketch provided; use a red, white, and blue color theme; use a star or heart; use 12 brads; use a flat sticker(s); a file folder tab; and stamping and sanding as the technique.here's my LO:

(used the jillibean Core'dinates Cardstock and man is that cool! you can sand, tear, whatever and it is pre-embossed so it makes a great design!) can you see the little star-like designs on the red strip? too cool!

Week 4

This week were were asked to cook up a recipe...ingredients were of course scrapbooking materials! A solid cardstock as the background, add 2 piece of patterned paper, buttons, flowers, ink, photos, journaling, and a dash of mojo! The secret ingredient had to a be an 8 letter title!

Here's mine!

creating into the new year!

so excited to have some time so early in the year to sit down in my space and create. i finished this cute card for a swap i am doing on the Columbus Scrappers website.


i also spent some time working on a LO from benny's sledding experience at my dad's on new year's day. i really liked the way the snowflakes turned out (a little diamond glaze and ultra fine glitter). i did enter the LO in the Backporch Memories DT contest for febraury too! heading to the scrap room today! ahhh...love being a SAHM!
