Challenge #43: Digital Scraplift

Within the last few years digital has taken the scrapbooking world into a new realm. While I haven't tried my hand at it (yet), there are some AMAZING digi artists out there. My personal favorite is an online friend of mine--Leah. Leah creates layouts in both digital form and paper. I love her funky, yet simplistic style. Leah also has a digital shop online--Funky Playground. Make sure to stop over and check it out!

This week the Nilsa from Scrap Whispers challenges you to scraplift your favorite digital scrapbooker. I decided to scraplift one of Leah's digital layouts.

Here's Leah's layout:

And here's my take on it:

I also want to take note that this is my 100th layout of the year!!!!! I still have a lot of work cut out for me if I plan to make that 150 goal, but I'm still very excited! Whoo hoo!!!!

Scrap Whispers Blog Hop: Rosie

I am very excited to announce that the Scrap Whispers Blog Hops are BACK!!! Each month we will showcase a different member of Scrap Whispers. The design team members will pick one of the members layouts and use it as their inspiration for one of their own layouts.

This month we are showcasing Rosie's work!!!! She had so many fabulous things to choose from on her blog including a TON of beautiful cards. Make sure you stop over and check them all out!

I choose this really sweet layout to scrap a photo of one of my boys.

Here is Rosie's layout:

Challenge #42: Color Challenge

So, I know that I've been slacking on my blog lately. So much going on this past month: vacations, school, hockey, soccer, etc, etc, etc. I actually didn't scrap for OVER A MONTH!!! Can you believe that?? BUT, last weekend I finally broke the spell and completed 5 layouts. Now I'm back and ready to get things moving along again. I hope to continue to update my blog as usual. :)

This week we started back up the Scrap Whisper challenges! Each week we will have another challenge for you to complete. Every other week all members who complete the challenge will be eligible for an RAK! Make sure you stop over and check it out.

This week's challenge is a color challenge. We would like you to complete a layout using pink, brown, and cream as your main colors. We would also like no more than 2 photos and there must be 4 buttons on your layout somewhere.

Here's what I created:

I'll be back tomorrow with more!!! Keep watching this spot!
