Challenge 1 from the CTMH board

So I was on the CTMH board the other day and noticed a group of girls who were doing a challenge that took a few days to complete. I was so in love with the idea. I followed the thread on my own to complete the challenge. It was a 2 page layout, and each day we got a little more info on what we needed on our pages.

Day 1 - Create base pages using various colors of card stock. Then to decorate it with various words that will be connected to the subject of the layout.

Day 2 - Pick the photos and mat them... Use four pictures to form a square and also have photo to be the centerpiece of the layout. We were also told to use a 3d element of wording in the center of the 4 photos, but I couldn't think of anything lol We also needed to decorate the center piece photo or mat in a way to draw the eye to that photo.

Day 3 - Create a journaling space. But various words in the journaling should be high lighted in a unique way.

Day 4 - Decorate and mat two seperate quotes and place one on each page.

Day 5 - Embelish to complete the page.

Gel Card

Someone on the CTMH boards mentioned the Gel Card tutorial on SCS yesterday. So I had to go over and check it out. It was such a cute technique I had to give it a try. But I don't think this will get used as a card. I think I am going to add it to a scrap page instead. It seems to busy to keep as a card. My 6 yr old seems to love it. It will take a lot more playing around until I get it right.

Newest Challenge Layout

This challenge was to use a minimum of nine squares and a minimum of three photos. I used CTMH stamps Todays date and Just because (from the card kit). It's pretty simple. But turned out cute. I think it has enspired me to do an scrapbook of DH and I before we were married.

I had a challenge this month to scrap the color green. This is what I came up with. It gave me a chance to play with my new "Whoo Loves You" stamp set. I love this set! I used my Cricut for the titling. It looks like a different shade of green IRL, but it was hard to see the difference in the photo.

Pirate Party Pages

These are the pages I started for my son's first birthday. As you can tell we did a pirate theme. I am far from done scrapping all the pictures I have from the party. But these are the pages I made today. I used the Ahoy Matey and Giggle Caps CTMH stamps - Honey, Cranberry, and Lilac Mist Card Stock - The skull Card stock one is DCWV. I also used my Cricut on these.

Kids say the darndest things...

Ok so this has nothing to do with my crafty side. But my son was cracking me up today. We were chatting before nap time. I think he was trying to avoid going to sleep. But he was saying the funniest things so I pulled out the camera to tape some of it.
