Scrap Drawer

I guess I ended up using a full sheet of card stock for the base of this layout... but everything else was straight out of my drawer. I even used my new Technique Tuesday stamps that I bought at CKC!!

Too long!

I can only apologize and offer up a potential excuse that I was consumed with trivial household chores and lost my craft table under a long to do list. I am tired of organizing and reorganizing my 'stuff'! My creativity is hampered by piles of almost done projects. 

This week's challenge is to create a layout using only the paper from your scrap drawer, file, bag or box where you keep the remains of paper. In the interest of staying green, reducing clutter and inspiring creativity make a fabulous layout and reclaim your creative space! Then post your layout on Monday, March 30.

I think for the time being, I am going to only do two challenges a month. Between the kid's cooties and sports schedules, I am frustrated by not staying on top of the challenges! Two a month is totally doable, especially considering that the holidays are going to be assaulting us soon! I will post a new challenge soon!!!

A 2 Z

I am admittedly late (again)... I used the Marvy Mega pink punch to make my squares and I totally plundered my scrap drawer for this one! My 3-year old helped pick out the order of the squares and the letters so it was lots of fun!

From A to Z

For this challenge you need to create a layout describing yourself or a loved one from A to Z. It can be either a one page or two page layout... it's your choice! So get out your thesaurus and/or dictionary and see what you come up with!!

My Favorites

My favorite things, tied with a string... I just couldn't help it! I know this is late, but I think I will blame the toddler and his separation anxiety and it's impact on my sanity for this delay!!
