Just some recent LOs done of the girls. Karis' LO was for a designer challenge, Sierra's was just a Christmas LO, and Ruby's was for a telephone scraplift challenge.

I've also been making lots of cards for Paper Crafts Magazine Royal Stampers contest. They will choose 20 winners and each get a bundle of stamps and accessories worth $250. Check it out at but don't submit stuff better than mine! Just kidding! ;-)

Happy New Year everyone! I attended an 'Online' Crop this weekend. Here is what I got done... I'm pretty proud of all the awesome pages I got out of the challenges and games! Wow, even uploading the pictures I'm amazed at all the LOs I got done (and a few cards too)

Challenge: Ad for Inspiration. We were given a magazine ad and supposed to draw inspiration from it. I'm too lazy to find the ad right now and post, but it was the Fancy Pants paper ad that had a hand cut heart and clock. So I used FP Free spirit paper, handcut the green flourish, and made a circle (clock) out of flowers. Quote says one must have sunshine, laughter and a little flower. Plaque says 'My Flower". Pic of Mommy and Sierra - my flower.

Challenge: Use and edged cardstock. Pictures of our Kare-bear. Bazzill cardstock with an edge (mini scalloped) Chatterbox Villa papers, Cricut for the title. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, I was under time contraints to get it uploaded in time!

Challenge: 2 pieces of patterened paper, ribbon, brads and rubons. Rubons are the title 'Bug Eyes" Ribbon is the ribbon flower to the left of Sierra's picture (green, easier to see in real life). SEI Doodley Girl PP

Challenge: Sketch. We had to follow a specific sketch. And it had to have pictures on it. The picture of me is going to be replaced with a 5x7 of Sierra on her 4th birthday. Pics down the left are at 1, 2, and 3 years old. SEI Doodley Girl PP, Cricut for the title.

Challenge: Person who Inspires you. My Grandma DeSalvo. I will add journaling later, but it will say how my Grandma taught me to cook, bake and sew. I was a chubby kid and I remember her helping me make the 'cool' clothes in my size when I was younger. I will always love her for that! I love you Grandma! Homeschool Plaid paper, made the wire photo corner, and my cricut cut the title - again, gotta love the bug.

Challenge: Monochromatic LO with 3 pictures. Everything had to be from the same color family on the LO - I cheated with the Rubons - LOL!

Challenge: Scraplift Challenge. I lifted the LO design from a design memeber at SG. Cosmo Cricket Storytime PP, handcut circle, tab and heart and traced in black pen - such a pain, but turned out really cute.

Challenge: Use pics you've been meaning to scrap. I already did these for Ruby and Sierra's book, but I wanted a page abou the 'Ucky Punkins' for my album, so here you go. Daisy Ds Gypsy Harvest PP, corduroy ric rac, Jolee's scrabble tiles for title.

Whew... thanks for looking! I had fun and got some awesome pages!
