Fall Into Fun

Okay, the last challenge from My Scraps & More...  technically, there was 10 challenges and 1 pre-challenge, but 6 is all I got to do.  I'm thrilled with the 6 I got done too...  I punched 'em out in about an hour a piece which is a pretty good average for me.

I hope you all have nejoyed the journey.

This challenge was to use the word "Fall" and use a banner on the page.

Comments always appreciated!


Another challenge from My Scraps & More...

This one was BINGO.  I love using Bingo sheets as inspration because getting the chance to see everyone's creation AND they ALL look different.  Amazing!

I used buttons, glitter, brads, and stitching!


This is yet another challenge from My Scraps and More for their Fall Online Crop.  I've had lots of fun and have gotten a lot accomplished.  The entire crop was 5 days long, which would be wonderful if that's all I had to do, but laundry is piling up.

This challenge, I had to create a Fall or Halloween page in non-traditional colors.  I'm thrilled with the way this one turned out!

Okay, so technically this was supposed to be done right after last Halloween, but you know how it it... life gets in the way.

The result...

Super Boy

This challenge from My Scraps and More Fall online crop was to take inspiration from the following ad...

The first thing I noticed was the fall colors.  The second thing I noticed ws the grid.  I didn't stick with this grid LO when it came to my pictures, but I did find this incredible grid BG paper that was screaming to be used.

The result...

Red River Gorge

Another challenge at My Scraps & More for their FALL online crop was to use a picture for inspiration.  The picture is below...

I could have taken this as a color challenge, but I took from this picture the look of layering.

Below is the result...

Thanks for stopping.

Fruit Pizza

Over at My Scraps & More, the DT has come up with a weekend online crop.  I decided to participate in it and boy, some of them were real challenges.

This is the result of the WonderFall Recipe challenge...

For this one, we had to pick out food from a menu-style list.  One drink, one appetizer, one entree, one side, and one dessert...  my choices then resulted in things I had to use on a layout.

I had to use the following:
no journaling
3 or more photos
2 patterned papers
torn paper

Now, I know that this was a FALL challenge, but I don't have any fall pictures to scrap yet... so anyway, the result is below, which I will use in my ABC book of me for the letter "F".

Comments always appreciated.

No Friends

These pictures were taken from my youngest son's 5th birthday.  I came across them as I was cleaning my scrappy room.  They are a little late since he is now 6 years old, but better late than never.

He says that this was the worst birthday party ever.  We had been in Tennessee for less than a year and we really didn't have any friends to invite to his party, so it was just the 4 of us.  It broke my heart, but I guess you have to scrap the good with the bad, right?

LO sketch from Sketchy Thursdays with a partnership with ScrapFit (F is for Friendship, Workout #52).

I love the way this one turned out.

Enjoy and please, leave some love!

Flying Pig 10K

It seems I've been away fromscrapbooking for some time.  The kids are in school and the daily routine is really starting to settle down.  I need to make scrapbooking a priority becauses it bring much joy!

I started this page some time ago, but the clutter in my office was really getting to me, so it was time to clean.  I've relocated my scrappy room down to the basement because my office upstairs was just not big enough.  That is either a sign that the room was too small or I just have too much stuff.  I won't comment on that...

anyway, this page was designed for the 123 Challenge ( which for the month of September is:

The word "ON".

Here it is...

Thanks for stopping and comments appreciated!

Star Power

This is the page I made for one of the Design Team Calls I entered recently.  Haven't made one yet, but I'm going to keep trying!  Sometimes it sure is frustrating.  There are women (and men) out there trying for Design Teams but you'll see the same names on multiple DT's.  I wish some would give us a chance!  Maybe I'm just whining, but had to put it out there...

Anyway, here it is.

Thanks for stopping!
