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!!

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!!
