A favorite layout from recent days...

Wow, so being challenged in Scrapvivor and in Debbie Hodge's Page Parts class, I created this layout that I really like:

I stamped Heidi Swamp clocks on the Kraft cs, used a lot of Jenni Bowlin stuff, some old clock pins I had, a time card from a kit, and a few other things. Loved saving these cartoons and documenting these facts about S & T (facts I write down at the beginning and end of the school year, but have never scrapped like this before). Think maybe I just started a new scrapping tradition!

And, I have been "voted off" Scrapvivor (not really voted off, my points didn't add up to keep me in at the last tribal council), but I have to shout out a THANK YOU to Annette for hosting such a fun challenge! Here's a link to my Scrapvivor gallery:

I'm happy that there is one week left in the Page Parts class, and I look forward to taking a digi class later this summer. This week is Vacation Bible School at church (dubbed Bible-cation by Tessa who can't remember the name). Love it!

Challenges... gotta love them!

I'm currently participating in "Scrapvivor" over at Willow Traders and it is so much fun. Lots of scrapping and cardmaking going on! I've done lots of creation and might just have to make a slide show of all of them once the competition is over for me (I do not anticipate making it to the end, but am having fun now). Appropriately, I am on the "Scrap Monkeys" team (and we are battling the "Bling Babes"). Our lovely hostess, Ms. Probst (Annette), is doing a wonderful job running the challenge and making it fun (especially if you are a Survivor fan like I am).

Challenge #4 is to use metal embellies on your layouts. I did 2 layouts today that I really like. I painted the edges and the word pink on layout "Pretty in Pink" (due to Bling Babe Laura's challenge), as well as using pink staples and a vintage metal button for the flower center.

I also did "Hopscotch Rules" using Debbie's title tips in "Page Parts Challenge" class at Get It Scrapped (and stapled almost the whole layout... must say, it was fast and easy to do!):

June is here!

I can't believe how fast the month of May flew by... "my" month is over :-) much to Kent's relief!
June means "school's out" (already for Tessa and the 11th for Seth). June means Father's Day, VBS, a trip to Hendersonville, a trip to Mississippi, and summer fun begins! June means "Scrapvivor" over at Willow Traders (a fun scrapping challenge patterned after one of my favorite TV shows, Survivor) and Debbie Hodge's Page Parts class! So, that means I am scrapping again. Here's one layout I particularly like:

K's anniversary gift is still in transit (hoping it will get here today)...

I'll be back posting more layouts soon!
