Iron Scrapper

I love participating in challenges to keep myself scrapping... sometimes I need that little bit of motivation with a deadline and some guidelines to get me going, otherwise I just stare at that blank canvas and it can be pretty daunting. So I've been participating in the Iron Scrapper 2011 challenges over at Scrap Orchard the past couple of weeks... here are a few layouts I've put together for it:

{created with Iron Scrapper Grab Bag: Week 1 by Julie Bullock, Irene Alexeeva, Designs by Kat, Fiddle-Dee-Dee, Nanie's Designs, and Scrapping with Liz; Rough Typewriter font}

{created with Blustery Fall kit and add-on by SuzyQ Scraps; Oopsie Doodle Borders 1 by SuzyQ Scraps; Pea Kar Kar font}

A Week in the Life

After waffling a bit, I've decided to take the plunge and participate in A Week in the Life along with Ali Edwards. Not sure what that is? Rather than try to explain it myself, you can find out more on Ali's site. Anyway, I'm really excited. I participated back in 2008, and it has been my most favorite scrapbooking project to date. It is a lot of work and can tend to be overwhelming, (which is probably why I haven't attempted it again) but the end result is so worth it. I'm really excited! Last time I did it I uploaded my photos at the end of each day and posted the daily happenings on my family blog. I then went back after the week was through and used those blog posts as an outline for my album. Not sure if I'll go that route again, but it seemed to work pretty well so I'm leaning that way. I'll be sure to post the finished album here. I'm so excited! Anyone want to join the fun?


Project: Love, Me - July

The theme for this month is iCelebrate. You can find all the prompts here. All my layouts were creating using the iCreate bundle which includes a kit, wordart pack, template pack, and cluster pack. And right now I'm patting myself on the back for having finished them all so early in the month!
