Do NOt Enter

I made this layout for the Monday challenge over at Sisterhood of Scrap.
The challenge is an easy one.... make a layout using mainly 2 colors,
and using a photo that has no people of animals in it.

I had this photo that my ds took when he was in NYC last spring and have wanted to scrap it for some time, but never knew what to do with it! Now I do!!!

Come on over and join us if you want!!!!

Get over to Sisterhood of Scrap right now, and join in on the 4th Birthday Bash crop!
Lots of challenges, tons of prizes from some awesome sponsers, and lots of games!! What are you waiting for... get over there!!



S:CY Reveal Today!

Sketches: Creatively Yours has it's second reveal up today and you MUST checkout what the DT did with Ali's awesome sketch!!

Here is Ali's sketch....

And here is my take on it....

For a little added incentive to do this sketch and post it to the site, Ali is giving away a "PAK"... Here is what she said...

Hey everyone, I am going to have some fun today!!!

Be sure to make use of the new sketch (Sketch 02-11) and include a link to your LO, altered item, ANY hand-crafted item or card in our "Comments" section, below.

We will visit and leave you some "loves," PLUS, I will number each person as 1, 2, etc... as you post your link(s). Your name (changed to a number) will then go into the "hat" via to win a Ribbon PAK! (PAK= Playful Act of Kindness.)

YES! You can enter this part of the PAK fun more than once!! Each creation using Sketch 02-11 as inspiration nets you ONE ballot.

Hmmmm.... OK: Let's make it a bit MORE fun! Wanna earn another ballot toward winning this ribbon PAK?

YES? FIRST: Be sure you've created a LO or any other crafty item using our Sketch as inspiration. Leave us a link.

THAT gets you one ballot for every item you create using the sketch.

THEN: Earn another ballot by doing all of the following things:

A) Post on your Facebook page about the S:CY Blog. SHARE our link:

B) Then "LIKE" the S:CY FB page HERE ( just tell me if you already have done so, I know u will be honest.)

C) Become a "Follower" here at S:CY. (Look on the right in the sidebar.)

D) Post here in "Comments" letting us know you did these things.

I will draw a name, (ie- a number,) using on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at about 1 PM Atlantic Time.

The PAK winner will receive a ribbon-treat in the mail. Wanna play? You're very welcome to join in.

So be sure to join in on the fun and have a great scrappy day!!

A Little Altered Something!!

Tabitha challenged us last Monday at Sisterhood of Scrap, to alter something!

I had this jewelry box insert lying about, and deceided to turn it into a wee shadow box for my scrappy space!!

The little box of scissors on the bottom right, was actually my Grandnma's and it does have the scissors in it!

The stamps were ones I have collected from the girls from SOS who have sent me stuff over the years!!

This was so fun to do!

If you want to alter a little something, do so, and then post it at Sisterhood of Scrap!!

Last night at Sisterhood of Scrap we had our monthly one hour crop, and I must say there were some awesome submissions for this!!

Kerri has been teasing me about my awersion to using DPB's for scrapping, so I thought I would make this layout in honour of that!!

For those of you who don't know, I really get freaked out with using buttons that are not made from a scrapping manufacture! You know the ones, they come off clothes from items people no longer wear, Dead People Buttions! There is a store here in town that has a 2X2X2 foot bin that is full of these!! It really does freak me out!!! Yucck!!! Anyways... this one is for you Kerri!!!

Sew Cool!

This layout was made for Carla's challenge this month
over at Sisterhood of Scrap!
Because march is National Quilt Month, we needed to make a layout representing this, as well as use stitching of sorts!

A couple of summers ago, my dear son and a couple of his friends bought a ton of stretchy orange and blue material to make t-shirts!! Now, you have to realize, these are 17 year old boys who have never sewed anything in their lives!! They spent the afternoon, cutting, sewing, and occasionally swearing but they did it!!!
Gotta love teenage boys!!!

March Holiday Challenges at SOS!

If you haven't checked out the March Holiday Challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap, you really must!!! There are some awesome challenges and a prize for someone to win!!

Here are a couple I have done this past week!

First is Colleen's Challenge. Here is what she said
"First Day of Spring challenge to me says windy days, so that means something flying, I chose a kite but want to see what you come up with. Also green grass starts showing up so your layout should be mostly green and of course the animals like to get outside as well so throw in some kind of animal and you know me, it is going to have to have some flowers as well.

Have fun and think spring."

So here is mine... a layout of my dog when she gets into trouble!!!

Another awesome challenge was from Chris. Here is what she wants...
"March 11th is WORSHIP OF TOOLS DAY!
Well to celebrate this Day I want you to use your tools!!!!
USE your stamps, your inks, your border many as you can!!!!
You need to use a t least 5 different tools!".

Here is mine!!!

Go check out the Sisterhood for lots of inspiration this month!!
Thanks for taking a peek! I will post a few more later!!

I am a Guest Designer at Crop Suey Today!! (and a prize)

I want to say a HUGE thanks to Mia at Crop Suey for asking me to be a guest designer there today! {{HUGS}} I am honoured!!!

I am also a bit PANICED!!!!!!! Yup... so much so, I created this layout just for her!!

I have been thinking about who I am in terms of my scrapping lately.
What style do I have?
What do I love to do best?
Where am I going to go with this obsession of mine?

I haven't many answers for these questions, but I can say... I am kind of all over the place with it!!! LOL!!!! I do love detail!! Like a freind of mine once said... "Life is in the details!". And because of Mia.. I am not afraid to mist!!! (Thanks Mia!!!).

So, you be the judge... what kind of scrapper do you see in me??

Leave a comment or two, and at the end of the month of March, I will pick a random winner for a prize package from me!!!

Thanks for stopping by and remember... stop over at Crop Suey and see what Mia has cooking for March!!

My Grandma!

Pagemaps has an awesome sketch this month!! Go check it out!!

Thanks for taking a peek!!

Altered Tray!!!

Well... thanks to the gals at Scrap Your Stash, I have finally finished this tray for my hubby!! It was suppose to be for last Christmas, but he will get it for his birthday at the end of March!!
Also, this will fit in perfectly for the challenge over at Scrap That Chat!!

I'm on the Design Team!!!

The Learning Factory in Brantford, one of my favorite stores around here, had a DT call, I applied, and I made it!!! I love all the product in Joanne's store... all my faves... Graphic 45, Webster's Pages, October Afternoon, Echo Park, Prima, and many more!!!

I picked up my kit a couple of weeks ago, and it was filled with Basic Grey's Curio patterned papers, some Zva bling, Prima flowers, and some extra goodies!!

Here is what I made for this month! We could only use what was in the kit, and I must say.. that was a challenge!!!!!

This first layout was made using a lot of techniques I learnt from my good friend Maggi at Sisterhood of Scrap!

This next one is a double pager.. very simple but I think it turned out ok!
It has been years since I did a double pager!! Way too much real estate if you ask me!! LOL!

With the left over scraps and such, I made 5 note cards:

Also.. a bit of information.. Joanne has recently bought another LSS in Kitchener, and is definitly closer to me, and was already one of my faves... The Scrapping Bug. There is an on-line store at this one, it is Canadian, and has fantastic servies!! I know she is geting a ton of new stuff in too!!!

Anyhoo... thanks for stopping by and having a peek!!

Frosted Designs Challenge

Good Morning!!

This week's challenge at Frosted Designs was to use metal on your layout.
This is a layout I did of my ds doing what he does best at 16!!
I wrapped wire around the photos, and also have a metal chain hanging from the side!

Thanks for taking a peek!


NO Patterned Paper!!!!

You have got to be kidding???
With all the beautiful pp I have stashed I have had to make a layout using none of it! Oh, what a challenge this was!!

Sylvia's Challenge for February at Sisterhood of Scrap this month was to do a layout using no pp!

Here is what I came up with....

Thanks for taking a peek!
