An Easter Card

OK so I found this cute blog a while ago and they have free monthly printables to download. The blog is Tinker & Co. Studio They also sell some super cute collections. I WANT MILLY.

Anywho, I decided to use Warren printables for an Easter card and I LOVE it. I think he is SOOOO cute.

Chopped Week 3

OK so here is my entry for the third and final week of the Chopped challenge for Scrap Attack on Cafemom. The requirements for everyone in the 4 groups was to use packing tape, pictures, ribbon and ink for distressing.

I used a sketch from the April Pagemaps as my inspiration. When I saw that we were to use packing tape I knew that these pictures of the boys in their cardboard clubhouse would be perfect. I found a cardboard box and decided to use tha packing tape to attach a piece of the cardboard to the page. Then I cut out some of the wording that was on the box for embellishment. I used ink to lightly discolor the cardboard and to streak both the patterned paper and the cardstock. I added alphabet stickers to the ribbon. I LOVE this page. I am so happy with it. I can't wait to see what the voting will be on this, the other mom that I am going up against is really talented. The voting will take place this weekend so I'll post early next week the outcome.

Cropped Week 2

So I made it through week 1 in the Cropped challenge on CM. Now the week 2 challenge is to make a layout with the following requirements (for group 1): ribbon, naked chipboard, yellow cardstock, and round brads.

This is what I came up with

Guess what? I made it through again. I am now in the final two for group 1. YAY ME.

My final challenge this week is to create a card, LO, tag, altered item using the following items:
clear packing tape, assorted photos, ribbon, ink for distressing.

I am going up against Linda and she rocks so wish me luck. I have my LO in mind that I want to do. I think I am going to work on it tonight.

CROPPED challenge week 1

So I signed up for a challenge on CM in the group Scrap Attack and the challenge was set up like the show Chopped. There were 4 groups of 4 (I'm in group 1) and every week there is a different challenge and different element requirements. At the end of the week all the work is judged and the lowest gets voted off.

Week 1 was to do a card or tag and it had to include: 8 pieces of cardstock, black journaling pen, photo squares, and alphas.

This is what I came up with and guess what I made it on to the next round.
