I've been a verrrrry busy girl...



Ok, so first up is the layout that I did for the My Little Shoebox sketch contest.  It's called, "I'm not just a nanny... (I'm a baby stylist)."  Man, that is a clever title if I do say so myself!  And you know I DO say so myself!  I made little debossed pinwheels and tabs. This is also for the challenge at Mission to Create, which was a challenge to include blue, parentheses (in my title), and pinwheels. I really like their unique challenges.  That MLS paper is much more blue in person, by the way.  I also submitted this to the open challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  OH, and the color scheme was inspired by a project at Lucky Girl Crafts


Nexxxxxxt is a layout that I made for the Cosmo Cricket blog challenge to scrap about your January.  Well, I typically hibernate after the fun of Christmas and New Year's passes, so that's what this layout is all about.  Notice I scrapped the terribly unflattering picture of Princess Creamy Kitty and me.  I'm surprised you can't see the drool on the pillow, which is almost definitely present!  This is also for the other Mission to Create challenge this month to use clear Stickles, snowflakes, and silver metal (brads).  Last, this is for the scraplift challenge at XOXO.  They are giving away a super-cute kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shoppe this month!  I scraplifted Lynnette Davis.



Here is the layout that I made for ACOT's January Contest.  It's called, "Dream of Wheat," and it's about my mother's transcendent Cream of Wheat.  I made homemade flowers for a challenge at Challenge Masters. I combined their sketch with the one provided for the January challenge at Pixie Dust Paperie.  I also submitted this to the open challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  Here is the sketch from Pixie Dust Paperie:


Moving on...

This layout is about my bestie, Stephanie.  It's for the challenge to create a friend-themed layout at The Paper Variety.  I used sketch 97 for the challenge at The Scrappiest.  I also did it for the challenge to journal something you remember at ACOT. 

This Halloween layout is for the Scraplift Challenge at XOXO (see details above about their giveaway this month!).  I scraplifted Khristen Foss's cool layout.  This is also for the stash challenge at Challenge Masters to use themed paper.

I used sketches from The Scrappiest on all three of these pages.  The first one ("Bathing Beauties") was done using Sketch 99, the second one ("Like a 12 Year-Old") was inspired by Sketch 98, and the third one down ("Riot) uses Sketch 100.   "Riot" was also done for the color challenge at Challenge Masters.

"Oh Scrappy (birth)Day" was done using the January 21 Sketch at Sassy Lil' Sketches.




This last layout (finally!) was done for the Sketch Contest at BlueMoon Scrapbooking.  I alsi submitted it to the open challenge at Sketches in Thyme.

about your comment - yeah I agree, I was kinda intimidated, and I don't know why the pink on my page showed up as red - it makes the whole thing look just 'off'

oh well, we tried
