Feb GDT & A fun contest

Soooo Excited I was picked as the FIRST GDT for this great new sketch blog called Sassy Lil Sketches!! Its the 7th and my Layouts are up on their blog. Since I'm the GDT I'm at the bottom but you can see BOTH of the LOs I completed. I had so much fun with the sketch I completed 2 LOs for them.

I have also been playing at Let's Capture our Memories - So you think you can Scrap contest. Week 1 challenge was Clean & Simple and you couldn't use pattern paper for your base. Here is what I came up with SHOCKINGLY I didn't use ANY pp.

Week 2 challenge was a monochromatic challenge. So I choose to do this pic of my cousin and myself. Glad I was finally able to get this photo scrapped from 2007.

Week 3 Challenge - I'm still in the contest, WOOHOOOOO!!!
This weeks challenge was Playful so I thought this pic of DH was perfect for playful. I used this great Fancy Pants line for this one.

January Challenges

I'm very excited to announce that I will be staying on the Layout DT over at My Sketch World for another six months. Thanks so much Lucy!!! I have another announcement that I have to wait a couple days to announce.

I found a fun new blog, Mission to Createthe other day with a great challenge on it. So for Mission #8 I used 4 of the 5 concepts, Colors - Red, Turquoise and White, Paint - I painted white paint around the edges of my two smaller photos, Curved Title, and Rubons - faux waves under small photos and the word summer - lower corner.

This month the challenges at My Sketch World are all based on getting your christmas photos scrapped, whether they are from 2009 or from years past.

I have been able to get a number of challenges completed so far.

The stocking goodies LO I completed with Scrapdango's Dec kit.

I just LOVED playing with the Super Stud papers from Bella Blvd. These fun robots are soooo cute. What an awesome kit this was to play with.

Dec DT projects with Scrapdango kit

I got the Dec Spice kit from Scrapdango this month. It features Pink Paislee's Mistletoe Collection. I love these papers and have been doing a number of christmas layouts (which is a VERY good thing) and I was able to complete 5 layouts - including a 2 pager and a card and I still have plenty left for more.

This collection is great because it isn't toooo Christmasy and it is perfect to use for non-christmas LOs too, including the layout I completed below.

The december layout I completed based on Lucy's sketch over at My Sketch World is another christmas layout.
