I decided to keep myself EXTRA busy this past week to push away the blues. In addition to projects the hubbs and I are completing around the house, I found a FEW minutes to get kreative! Sassafras' design team sponsored a few "we're at CHA but don't forget about us" challenges and I did pages for a few (of COURSE I forgot to post these in time to be in the running for any PRIZES but it's all about the PROCESS...right???):
For Megan's challenge to focus on the journaling I kreated this page
of myself and my aunt last summer. I LOVE when I'm able to get an older picture put away in the books! I'm not sure if this counts as focusing on the journaling since I still added circles and STUFF around the page!!!
Kimberly's challenge was to scrap your summer traditions which was EASY AS PIE!!!
We don't visit the same vacation spots every summer; we don't always complete the same activities. But two things are GA-RON-TEED to happen EVERY summer: the Man steps up his barbecue'in and as SOON as they're in season we partake of the crawfish! We love to eat...don't judge! BONUS: I got to utilize one of the handmade embellishments from the July Kreatorville kit...SCORE!!!!
Michelle challenged us with a color palette which inspired me to scrap these older pix of Kea:
I found an entire pack of these 35mm pix while transforming my studio into Kea's bedroom a few weeks back. I'm glad because a lot of Noonie's baby pictures were lost on an old computer. I LOVED-ED that bouncer when he was a wee tot because it knocked him out ALL.THE.TIME.
I also scrapped some of those same 35mm pictures using the last palette from Color Combos Galore. I started off making the base of the page first...I didn't know what pictures I would use. But when I looked at those sweet cheeks and little teeth peeking out...I couldn't resist scrapping my baby boy. Hence the girly colors!
My twin is giving birth to a little girl right now so I used those same colors for a congrats card
I'm practicing my card-making skills. I have a sister who'll be married in October, another whose having a baby in February and 90% of my friends will turn 40 this year...lots and LOTS of cards in my future!!!
I have a cool post up at Kreatorville on a stash-busting technique I use a lot on my kreations. In other scrappy news, my webinar has finally been posted on Masterful Scrapbook Design...you should really consider signing up to hear all my wit, charm and sage advice! (I'm a comedian...what can I say???)
I've saved my best scrappy news for last: Debbi just announced that I'm the August Guest Designer over at Color Combos Galore...say whaaaat???? I'm soo excited...I've already finished two of the pages! Here's a sneaky peaky for you:
I'm hot as a cat on a tin roof right now!!! Keep it coming, Lord...keep it coming!!!
