All Grown Up

This is another layout I entered for the Mon Ame Memories November Guest Design Team Challenge. We were to create a layout based on this sketch.

The second part of the challenge is to take the words "MON AME" and for each letter you have to have some sort of supply. For example:
M-Making Memories paper
O-orange bazzill
and so on

My supplies were:
M-"My Boy" Prima Paper
O-Orange Bazzil Cardstock
N-Nine journaling strips
M-Making Memories Marker

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I decided to do something FUN! I altered a bra and underwear! I know, kinda crazy, but fun. This was a challenge posted at Mon Ame Memories for their November Guest Design Team contest. I am in the final leg of the race---wish me luck!

Instead of using patterned paper, I found some cool newspaper print that had some fun pink swirls. I also made the flower out of the same newspaper print.

Scrap Whispers

Exciting news!!!! I was selected to be on the design team for a new challenge blog--Scrap Whispers. I'm super excited! As many of you know, I LOVE a challenge! But, wait! This challenge blog is a little different. Remember that game you used to play as a kid? Where you secretly whisper a phrase to the next person sat in a circle, who then whispers it to the next person and so on? The last person announces the phrase out loud and this usually results in a completely different phrase than the one you started off with?! Well, thats basically how scrap whispers works too. Only with scrapbook layouts instead of a phrase!

Our first game will start next week. If anyone is interested in signing up please send an e-mail to: ASAP! Each whispers challenge will run approximately 2 months and then sign-ups will occur again. In between each whisper challenge there will be an individual weekly challenge. Stop on over and check it out!!!
