Guess it has been the horrible storming weather or maybe something is just clicking in my Mojo area! I completed 4 layouts in two days. That is amazing for me to do!! I am almost done with the album that I am making for my friend which is what these layouts are for.
This first one I completed for the sketch challenge over at my fellow Sistah Kim's blog Sketches in Thyme. She has started up her own challenge blog so stop on by and be part of her very first challenge! It's a great sketch so have fun with it!! I know I did! I cut out the Shamrock on my Cricut Paperdoll cartridge (fit to page). The only bummer about this whole thing was the papers I matted the pictures with were so beautiful but you barely get to see them!
The second one I am posting about today I designed around the sketch challenge over at A Crafty Little Place. I had so much fun with this one!! I used purely scraps with the exception of the base cardstock that I had to use for my page. I just took whatever scraps I could find and made something out of it. All the paper I left as is and just glued to make some sort of pattern...I barely had to trim anything. I even found a strip of brown paper that I had sewn on at one point and decided to add that with a button I found with the string already attached. Then to satisfy the die-cut challenge over at
The Corrosive Challenge I dug into my diecut drawer and found some apples and some baskets!! I was so excited to find those since I thought they were perfect for the page. I just used whatever apples I could find in whatever size they were. I also came across a little "button" that I stamped about 1-2 years ago that says "You are an original" and decided to add that to the basket for fun. Maybe I went overboard once again with my scraps but I had so much fun I couldn't stop!!!
