another week, another challenge!

Challenge #4 at Scrapperie this week.....create a layout using 4 photos, a 4 word title, 4 embellishments, and 4 colors. I actually love these types of challenges, but this one proved a little difficult for me. I mean c'mon, only 4 embellishments?? Actually, while I was writing out my description to upload into the gallery, I realized I had one too many embellishments on my layout, so I opted to pull off the Heidi Swapp cherry bling I had on there....it was the easiest to remove! LOL And this is the end result (although I'm not totally digging this one at all!)

Scrapperie Challenge #3

This week's challenge was to create a layout that had the title "This is True Beauty". Here is my take....

lost in the shuffle.

This layout was on my scrapping desk forever....while I was still looking for my mojo!! I eventually finished it, but for some reason, forgot to add it to my collection here. It's another 6x12 layout....fun, fun size!!

Scrapperie Nov/Dec Challenge #2...

do a monochromatic layout, and whoa!! was this ever a challenge for me!! I just don't do monochromatic! I mean, the more colors I can use on a layout the better! After I got to digging around in my stuff, and knew I had all kinds of things green, it came together. Still not something I would have done on my own, but that's the whole idea of challenges, huh?

Life is good!

Ever have those days when everything goes according to plan and you just don't think things could get any better? And you have to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming? Well, that's exactly the kind of day I've had. Got an email just a while ago that I've ended up reading like a gazillion times. It's one I haven't deleted just yet, and probably won't for a day or two, or three.....maybe even a week. Just according to how long it takes to sink in, and it may actually take a while for it to do just that, simply because it's so unexpected.....so exciting......so got me jumping up and down. No, I'm not pregnant! I made The Embellishment Studio design team!!!!! I am absolutely ecstatic and can't wait to get started!!! Oh yeah, and I made a 100% on my CPR test ;) hehe.

Remember that mojo I was having such a hard time finding? I think I've finally found the solution to the problem! I've done a couple of 8.5 x 11 layouts lately, and I'm really loving working with this size! I might just be back in my groove :)

once again!

Somehow, for some reason, it takes participating in challenges &/or contests to get my creative juices flowing. Since I have been lacking in that department lately, I decided to sign myself up at Scrapperie to join in their Nov/Dec Challenge. The first challenge was to scrap about your Superhero. No doubt about it, my dad is my hero!

one more....

whipped this one up for a challenge at Label Tulip .....photos could be no larger than 2.5" x 2.5" Thankfully, I had run across these photo booth pics not so long ago and they fit the bill perfectly. Used mostly the Label Tulip kit here.

Celebrating Family...

I was inspired to try multiple photos of varying sizes and here is what I came up with. Kinda hard for me since I'm mostly a one-photo-layout kinda girl. Felt good anyway to get all those pics onto a page and be able to say they are scrapped! May have to try that again....soon!

Lost! If found, please return to rightful owner immediately!

It appears I have lost my mojo!! I go sit in my little scrapbook nook for hours, and come up with zilch! I try playing with new kit stuff, different color combos....I go to my favorite sites searching for inspiration....still, nothing. So please, if you see my mojo wondering around aimlessly, point it in the right direction and send it back home to me! In the meantime, here is a measly attempt at my mojo-less recovery.
