Lotsa Pretties!!!

Okay, bear with me, I've been a busy bee, but there are lotsa pretties in this post!! Well, at least I think so!! LOL!

My favorite project I did this week was a gift for someone. And stupid me, I forgot to take a picture of it!! So, to whom it may concern, when you get the clipboard, please snap a pic and email it to me :D

This layout was done with the March ScrapGoods kit and for the scraplift challenge on their message board. We got whole sheets of uncut grungeboard, so I cut a corner and the title from it, painted it white and inked it with pumpkin pie spice SU pad. I also cut the felt corners apart to get the scrolls.
This LO was done for the Savvy Scrappers Club over at MBI. You get $1 store credit for every challenge completed and $3 for every quarterly challenge. This was the Daisy D quarterly challenge. The PP and ric rac are from the MBI store, rest of stuff from my stash.
Another SG March kit LO. The technique was mitering frames, so I put some frames on this page. Also used Elle's journal tags. Story is courtesy my nephew! LOL! He had Sierra busting up with his ' YOU ATE POOP!' joke.
This LO was for a sketch challenge at Itty Bitty Scrap Shack. The girls in their Mouse Ears!
These next ones were all done for the ScrapBook Takeout National Craft Month Crop this weekend.

This was a 'Go Green' challenge. We were supposed to repurpose something that you would normally throw away. I plan on using this as an ice cream money container when the ice cream man starts coming by.
Another SBTO challenge - make a home decor with pics that is NOT a frame or LO. Used 6x6 acyrlic sheets to hang these adorable pics!
SBTO challenge, make three cards that have the first letter in common. P: pink,punches and paint. G: green, glitter and gamsol. L:lilac, layers and lace. The purple one is also based on a sketch from Tonya at MBI.
SBTO Challenge: use something in your stash +1 year old. These CC papers are about 1.5 years old, also based my LO on the Shackin' Up with the DT contest at Itty Bitty Scrapshack. I lifted Sara's LO, which coincidentally was based on a sketch by Valerie Salmon.
SBTO Challenge: use a stamp you've never used before. The "P is for Princess" stamp on the scallop circle in the bottom right. Also MBI SSC Week 11 challenge Glitter and Paint. Painted scrolls and glittered the title.
SBTO Challenge: letter to your younger self. I wrote a letter to my 17yo old self about my future husband
SBTO Challenge: stitch on your layout - I used a Bazzill in Stitchez template to embroider the scroll
SBTO Challenge: monochromatic embellies. Ribbon, brads, buttons, felt shapes and flowers are all pink!
SBTO AD Challenge: did this LO based on this ad
SBTO Challenge: take a 1page LO and make it a 2 page LO. I used a sketch from PageMaps and adjusted the pics to make it a 2page LO.

SBTO Challenge: use a slang word or phrase from the decade you grew up in. I used PSYCH! from the 80s LOL!! I remember saying this ALL the time. LO reads: How my parents used to punish me... PSYCH! Gotta love being a child of the 80s! :D

Whew!! Thanks for taking the time to look at all my stuff... if you made it this far!!! LOL!
