Amazing - Challenge Yourself

I loved, loved, loved this challenge at Challenge YOUrself.

Challenge #9: Celebrate YOUr Age
  Scrap your age, right now, today!
{remember to include YOU in the photo}

Isn't it challenging enough to have to include yourself in the layout, but now we have to include your age...  really?  My tip for you, just go for it!

To be honest, I didn't know exaclty how I wanted to go about this challenge, so I sat on it for a month or so.  Then, last weekend, as I was scrapping with my friend Pam, an idea popped in and I just ran with it!

Here is what I came up with...

I love all the colors.  It makes it feel like a happy page.

Just the facts!

This was the hardest part of the page.  This is chipboard covered with paper.  The skinny parts are very flimsy and they just wanted to come apart so easily.  Filing the nooks and crannies took FOREVER!

Just another close-up!

Hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by.

XOXOXO - Color Me Scrappy

Excuse me, but if someone could please help me find my mojo, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I'm not sure if it's summer or because we didn't travel anywhere exciting...  We've made multiple trips to the cabin, but that will be a before and after type album when we finally finish it.

You should check out the color challenge at Color Me Scrappy.

These colors are great, but to be honest, it was the picture that drew me in!  Ha!  A yummy margarita!  Maybe that will help with my lack of mojo!

CMS also has a great prize that is up for grabs this month. Definatley worth it!
