New Layouts......

I can admit... when I first saw the Jillibean paper in the Scrap-Room Kit, I was not interested in using it right away. The colors really did not grab me. However, today I decided to use it and I fell in love with it! Here is a LO I did using a sketch from http://www.pagemaps.com/ :
and I loved it so much, I made a card for my in-laws. (Yes!! I made a card!!!)
These next layouts are for challenges on www.papersecrets@friendhood.net :
Color Challenge -
Scraplift Challenge -
Stash Challenge (had to use 3 or of 5 items listed. I used 3 pattern paper, 3+ die cuts and a border punch) -
This Layout is for http://www.challengemasters.ning.com/ color challenge (sketch by Julie Bonner http://www.52sketches52weeks.ning.com/)-

New Layouts....

For MME's Paper Flower Challenge - http://mymindseye.typepad.com/blog/2009/12/blog-challenge-6-paper-flowers.html
** Flowers were made with MME's paper and using the scallop, circle and flower punches. I distressed by crumbling up the paper, filing and inking. Lastly, I used the sewing machine to stitch.

Touched Paper Today!!!

I finally got to play in my scrapbook room today. If you know me, you know I love me some MME paper!!! :) Well MME is doing a sketch challenge right now so I decided to do a layout:

Everything on this layout is MME except the buttons and Thickers.


Also, last week or so, I created this layout for the Paper Secrets Sketch challenge:
And lastly, here are other layouts I did for my Cabo album:

** you may notice on this 2page layout! LOL I didn't realize this error until after it was all said and done and picture was taken. I still haven't fixed it and, well, I just might not. If you can't figure out the error, then I guess it's not that big of a deal! ;)

Thanks for looking! :)

Layouts I did in Mammoth Last Weekend....

Last weekend, I went on a Girl's Getaway Scrap Weekend to Mammoth. No snow, but had a great time! We stayed in a fabulous custom home that was designed by my Boss. First and foremost ---- here are the layouts I completed....Finally finishing up my daughter's baby album. I started working on my Cabo San Lucas photos and had a really hard time! Here's the problem. I am not good at doing double page layouts. I have so many pictures that I want to scrap that it only makes sense that I do multi-photo layouts or double page layouts. So this is a major challenge for me!


Lastly, Here are some pictures of our weekend....

Us Scrapping...
All of us.... View of Front of House... View of Back of House....





Us being silly!
and ME!

Thanks for looking! :)
