Weekly Challenge - March 31, 2008

OK....The past week of being sick has completely kicked my butt! But I am finally well enough to get back into my scrap room and get some work done. I am still working on the past 2 challenges and I am determined to get something posted for each and still work on the new challenge. We'll see??

So here it is.....use a favorite quote or song lyrics for your journaling.

Originally I was going to do my dad...but he still hasn't sent me a photo to go with his survey. So, the only other family member that is on the ball like me is my little firecracker of a cousin, Robin. She maybe petite, but she could totally make a grown man cry in fear, just ask her hubby Jeff! Truthfully though, she totally rocks! The only thing that makes me sad is she lives all the way on the other side of the continent! Love you Robin!!

Interview Page

For this week, your challenge is create a page about a family member and conduct and interview with them, either over the phone, in person...or by email. There are lots of ideas online: (this is a shorter list)
Or for a longer interview: (this is the main list available on a lot of ancestry websites!)
I can't wait to see what we all come up with!!


So, it's not JUST ribbons, but it's way more than I would normally it's gotta count, right?!

Ribbon Challenge

This weeks challenge is to create a layout using ribbon as your main design element. Have Fun! Jillybean

Magazine Ad Post

AD Page

This ad was my second choice, the one I was doing digitally got eaten by my evil new computer. As a punishment, it is being returned to Dell and they are making me a new one....seriously, I don't know if it was the hinkiness of Vista or just a fluke bad computer, but this was a BAD computer.

So, for my second choice, a clean simple layout using FLOWERY paper!!! Hee-hee!! The journalling says "there's nothing cuter than chubby baby hadns. Except maybe chubby baby hands, or cheeks or CHEEKS!"

Ads Rock!!

So, you know how it is... you're flipping through the seemingly endless ads in your latest and greatest magazine to get to the articles. STOP... go back, look at the ads! Your challenge this week is to find an ad layout that totally rocks (or just rocks you) and translate it into a scrapbook page. Let the layout be your muse and try and pull the colors from the ad into your page as well. I have a stack of magazines to dig through, and not all of them are (gasp) scrapbooking mags!!!!
Have fun and get posting!!

Convention Layout Challenge

This layout is from my Scheming Around Class. I really don't know what products these are. I still have 2 photo spots open. They are reserved for Alicia and Megan.

Playful Pages Completed!!

SO... I was going to wait to use these until I was done with my LAST CM album, but somebody didn't want her CKC layouts lingering aorund for a year, so what was I supposed to do?! Above the gaping mouth photo I used the Heidi Grace ghost letters to spell out 'toothy' and the journaling says "Max started losing teeth right and left, or top and bottom, during second grade."
I loved this class and layout! It totally worked with these photos, and yes, the CM album is done! I did ten whole pages last night, not my personal record, but not too shabby!! It's on Jillybean!!!

Different Page Size Challenge

OK...Here's my different page size layout. I was going to do 8.5"x11". But because I am behind I kind of cheated and took a 12x12 layout I was working on and cut it down to the size 9"x12".
The Journaling says: Mom, are you for real? Making me wear these dorky bunny ears! Do you have any idea what this will do to my reputation? Just you wait....I'll get back at you for this someday!
Products: All Paper/Letter Stickers are from SEI, Rub-On from TLC, Brads unknown and scalloped border unknow.

Post CK Convention Challenge

I'm still here and am frantically trying to catch up with the last 2 challenges. I think I should have them done by tomorrow.

However we still need to move on to the next challenge so here's what we are going to do....
I think all of us on this board attended convention last week and also attended classes where we did some really cute projects. The goal for this week is to add photos and complete these layouts so they don't just lay around for an eternity. Post one or two of your completed projects.

It's different alright!

My page size was 6x12" and the journaling says "The first Saturday of each month, our women's ministry group has a breakfast where we all have serious fellowship and strict spiritual discussions! (or not) This was a fun size to try!! I can't wait to see everyone else's pages...ahem, hello? Is this thing on? Jillybean, where are you?!
