My Girl

Well, I was cropped. Sad face :(  Actually, it's all good, I had a lot of fun with the challenges and I am a little relieved that I don't have to scrap under pressure anymore! It'll be fun to watch from the sidelines.  There is a lot of impressive talent and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I do have one page to share really quick, using a bunch of goodies from Gennifer Bursett:

everything by Gennifer Bursett:
Bubbly Papers; Endless Summer elements; Anchored Washi Tape; Leathers: Candy Frames; Leathers: Family v1; Stitched Flowers

Cropped: Round 3

Happy to report I have not yet been cropped - I made it to round three! You can see the mystery basket ingredients we had to work with, and the challenge was to create some kind of contrast on your layout.  So here is what I came up with... crossing my fingers! The competition is getting tough!  You can also check out all the layouts in the Cropped Gallery.

Would you believe that the paper pack and element pack I used for this layout are just $1 each?! It's true people, through the end of July at Pixels and Company's Dollar Days sale.  Tons of goodies for just a buck! Go get 'em!

Hello... is anyone out there?

I'm back! Now let's see if I can remember how to do this...

I took a little break from blogging as things got hectic last year between keeping up with Project Life, my regular scrapbooking, Digi Night Out, and that other stuff called REAL LIFE. :) But... I haven't done Project Life this year (but oh! I wish I was! It was just too time consuming for me), and I recently handed the reigns of Digi Night Out to someone else so... I am back to blogging! Even if it is just to post my most recent pages.

At the beginning of the month I entered the Cropped competition over at Pixels and Company. It's been a lot of fun! We've had two challenges so far, and luckily I didn't get cropped in the first round - we'll see what happens in round 2 later this week.  Here is my week one entry:

Scarlett Letter papers by Gennifer Bursett and Mommyish;
staple from Made of Awesome by Gennifer Bursett;
label from Endless Summer kit by Gennifer Bursett and Robyn Meierotto;
Quaver Sans font
And here is my entry for week 2:

Quilting Bee V1 papers by Robyn Meierotto;
Simple Stitches 2 by Karen Funk;
blue stamp and sequins from More or Less Collab by P&Co designers;
label from Personally by Dawn by Design;
1942 Report font
It's been so fun to participate, and to see so many layouts that contain the same "ingredients" and follow some of the same rules, and yet they are all so unique.

I have one other layout to share - this on I made for My Scrapbook Art to show off some designs by the fabulous Kaye Winiecki:

And that's it for now! I'll be back soon with more scrappy goodness. It's nice to be back!
