Friday, February 24, 2012 online crop challenges

February has held several firsts for me - and attending any sort of crop is among them. While I had problems keeping up with the chat tonight I did manage to work on a few of the challenges during it.

Challenge 1 -  Amethyst 1 MWM
Challenge 2 - Keepin it Real

Paper: Love Elsie
Quote: Cosmo Cricket
White numbers: AC Thickers

The Amethyst sketch used 14 pictures! Wow. That was an interesting challenge. While laying in bed the night the MWM was posted I came up with this idea - a few of your favorite things. And then lo and behold the next day the challenges were posted, show something the way it really is. Well, let me tell you, this is how it really is. With two little boys there are toys everywhere! Thankfully, the boys typically leave the toys in piles by kind with very little integrating of messes, resulting in quick clean-up and slightly organized pictures.

Challenge 4 - Something old, new, borrowed, blue
It could be anything from a card to home decor.

Well, this one I fudged a little. No scrapbook paper involved here but I did meet the other requirements, and it was something I have been really wanting to do and never made time for so at least I got another project done!
Old: the curtain rod we got with wedding gift cards -- 7 years ago
New: brown vinyl and my Silhouette machine were both bought  (from SS) within the last 7 months
Borrowed: "borrowed" the idea from pinterest, also "borrowed" the Scientists' hanging expertise, "borrowed" the boys' artwork to display
Blue: there's quite a lot of blue paint. Trust me on that, they kept asking for more blue.

I'll be working on the third challenge this weekend - scrapping about my scrap space. 
EDIT: I'm done with challenge 3, just waiting to print the picture of my space. Printer ink is lousy right now so I'll have to go get prints. Here's the page and the picture (which will go in place of the black cardstock) for those curious about my layout for the page.

Challenge 3 - scrap your space
Papers: MME Happy Go Lucky and random scraps
Letters: Basic Grey Oliver and Piggy Tales Twinkle Twinkle, and others

My closet/scrap space. 

These also bring me to a total of 7  8 projects out of 25 for my personal challenge, I've only gotten in a total of 10 miles since I started it but that's at least getting off the couch!


  1. Your projects turned out so great! I love that you made your "Masterpieces" space for the rocked it! Such a fabulous idea and smart to use a challenge to get it done. Thanks for sharing!


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
