Scrappy weekend

Oh man did I get a lot done this weekend! I finished up my page for the Paper Girls Challenge Blog, worked on a couple of extra Mid Week Mojo's (still trying to get all the original ones done), and a card. I had lots of fun, can you tell?!!

So here we go: Paper Girls Challenge #6 was to use the following photo as inspiration.

from Martha Stewart. com via pinterest
 "You can take whatever you want from this photograph - colors, patterns, grid, squares, materials (glass, metal, fabric) and use that as your inspiration for your creation this week. I'm so excited to see what you make!"

"Don't Forget"
 Well, I pretty much only took the grid from this picture. I did a page that I'm not in love with but it was fun to do something so very different from anything I've ever seen! I used Cosmo Cricket papers, American Crafts Chap accordion flowers and both the stamp and blue ink are Martha Stewart.

Then, I opened up the blog and pulled out some old MWMs.

MWM 3 - This page originally just had the one 4x6, but I really liked the idea of making those tags into pics too. Squirrel was doing these crazy smile faces for a few months around the holidays and I just wanted to capture that. Papers, stickers, stars and twine are Jillibean Christmas Soup. Brad is stash. Eyelets are We Are Memory Keepers.
"We're all a Little Flaky"
MWM 4 -This sketch was originally a 3 pic that I converted to get a few more pics of Christmas onto the page! They weren't the best pics so cropping them made the focus seem a little better. The papers, stars, stickers and twine are Jillibean Christmas Soup. American Crafts Delight Thickers, inked with Color Box Chestnut Roan.

"Our Christmas 2011"
MWM 5 - When I started scrapbooking (just over 3 years ago) I always did  2 pagers, but I haven't in a while and this 5 picture spread was a challenge! I cropped some of the pictures down and squeezed an extra two on this page about hanging out at the park during our very warm winter! Papers and stickers are Fancy Pants Rough and Tough. Brads are stash.

"Boys will be boys"

Then, I made the following card for The Paper Variety's current challenge - we were to scraplift an idea from somewhere on their blog to use as inspiration for a project. I chose to "lift" a tutorial about creating a title with twine by Kate.

Papers for this card are Authentique Blissful, brad is Paper Studios Affinity, ink is Prima Terra, and twine is WRMK Sew Easy Yellow.

And finally, this morning I made a card using the MCM #81. Papers and embellishments are all Authentique Blissful. Ink is Terra by Prima. Glitter glue by Crayola.

50 Project Challenge
Done: 21
Confession, I "stole" today from - just couldn't pass up on the MME Lost and Found 2 Sunshine. *sigh* Time to hop back on the wagon.
