Ok so Friday night at like 9 I remembered a virtual crop I had wanted to participate in. I got online and my graphics 45 layout
was my first challenge. It was due by Midnight and I had to make up my mind quick. It was a really cool Simon Says type challenge. FUN! Sat I got up with a mission. I took care of errands and the kids and hunkered down in my room with my iPod and got to work. I was so excited about the amount I got finished. I was able to do some layout for an OLD project that got pushed aside and neglected as well as some really cool layouts.
Ok in this layout I was challenged to use 7 Gypsies. I thought I didn't have any of there stuff until I dug through my hoard of paper. Low and behold there were 2 each of 4 different papers. I also found some black cloth tape that was 7 Gypsies. The only non 7 Gypsies was the chipboard letters and I covered them with paper and Christmas primas (sorry these are sold out). The Chipboard is Lil Davis Love Afair Alpha
This layout is me trying desperately to get my girls to cooperate and let me get an artsy picture of them on the stairs. Didn't happen but we still had fun.
This challenge was inspired by those quizzes that go around myspace. We were challenged to do a layout that included 10 random things about us. These are mine: 1. I Clog 2. I took a Calligraphy class 3. I've never fallen off a horse 4. I love kissing 5. I'm a Sussie homemaker 6. I'm 31 7. I love clothes shopping 8. I must own all primas 9. I'm a natural blonde 10. I'm addicted to digital photography. I pulled out the OLD primas I had in the back of my shelf for this one. I'm still unsure if I'm going to put a picture on it. I'm proud to say that all of this was out of my stash (that I NEED to be using)
This was an ad challenge. We were to get our inspiration off of an ad that was posted. Anyway I really was only inspired by the colors. This is a page for that lost project. It's an album of my photo a day pictures from Jan 2007.
This challenge was to pick a layout out of the Design Teams Gallery and lift it. I was excited because this allowed me to work on another page in the photo a day album and with the American Craft Teen Line .
This is another lift. We were to look at a particular blog and get an inspiration. Mine inspiration was ribbon and lots of it. This is American Craft Teen Line - paper & ribbon this can be found at my store Everything Scrapp'n
This was another lift. I had received these papers and embellishments from a swap I was in ages ago, so again more stash used YEAH!
This was a sketch challenge. I love sketches more than lifts because they are grey and white. I don't get interference with my ideas. I feel more free! So now the materials: This is a sneak peak of what Fancy Pants will be sending out closer to summer!
This is another sketch challenge but his sketch challenge had some "rules" like numbers and types of papers and embellishments. This was another stash user.
This one is my favorite. This is a music challenge. I used "Standing on the Corner of Windslow Arizona" as my song. Last spring the family drove out to the Grand Canyon and on the way we heard about this and I just had to stop. The picture is very bad on the layout because the printer was having issues. I'm going to have it reprinted because it is an awesome picture that shows great details of the place. Under the beer coaster is journaling. The coaster is on twine from a Rusty Pickle album.
Ok well the post is getting long so I will make another post in a few days to show you the rest of what I got done.
