My Scrapbook Nook - Virtual Crop

I had so much fun scrapping this weekend. My Scrapbook Nook was having a crop with tons and tons of fun challenges. I hate it that I only got 3 done. There where so many more that I wanted to do...there just aren't enough hours in the weekend.

This is my first page...Challenge #11 - Getting to know you.

Talk about hard! What a great challenge. The challenge was to interview a family memeber. Then where the hard part comes had to use 4 pps(target $ spot pp, BG, MLYB and CI), at least 2 different alphas(AC, MM and Dyno tape) and 5 different types of embellies (buttons, flowers, bling, puff ball ribbon, and a journal tag).

Second is #3-Old Stash

All the talk of vintage photos really got me wanting to scrap and old photo! This was me when I was 3. I used some ancient Daisy D pp that I've had since, well, forever! It was waiting just for this picture I think. I also used some old Prima flowers and bling from last year that I just can never bare to use. Just too darn cute to use up!

Then last was Challenge #7 - Scraplift

I am so in love with this designeers work! It was just an honor to get to scraplift LG Balarmino. I lifted her Winter Funland page.

Here is my lift:

Back Porch Memories

Can you believe it has been nearly a month since my last post? Yikes! There just isn't enough hours in the days.

I am so excited to be posting this today. I was lucky enough to get to scrap as a guest designer for Back Porch Memories this month! Yay! What a privilege it has been! The January Solo kit is absolutely gorgeous! It's filled with My Mind's Eye, Fine & Dandy goodness!! I am so excited about this kit, I don't know which page to show first!

Let's see, the first page I did was Welcome to Kindergarten.

This is Chloe on the first day of school. She was so very excited! On this page I used the Fancy Pants, Love Birds alpha stickers, I used a bunch of the MME Fine & Dandy Layered Stickers, those things are just too cute!! I also used some of the Fine & Dandy MME Ribbon, I loved that too! So gorgeous! The pps I used are Tickled Pink: Adorned, Cheery and Pretty. I also used the Fine & Dandy Jewels from the add-on embellishment kit.

The second page I did was Snow Fun! More Chloe...she is my camera hog!

I used a lot of the same goodies on this page as my first, the Fine & Dandy ribbons, the jewels, and the layered stickers. I also used both the Fancy Pants Alphas and the Bumble Thickers in my title. I did add a few buttons from my stash as I have a button addiction. lol The papers are all Tickled Pink pps, Radiant, Pretty and Cheery.

The third page, Our very Own Sunshine, I did for the January sketch.

I thought it would be fun to follow along with Danielle P.'s Single/Double challenge with this sketch! More gorgeous jewels, more yummy ribbon. I used the Bumble Thickers for my title. I also had fun with some fussy cutting with the little birds and circles from the Adorned pp. I also used Cheery and Radiant pps.

Then last but not least...this was such a fun project! And what a way to use up scraps. I used nearly all of the rest of my kit on this flower pot.

I finally got to use the gorgeous aqua and Orange Jillibean Soup Sugar Picks and I also used all 6 ppps from the kit in this project. I also finished off the rest of my ribbon too. :-( I want some more! Of course I added some buttons from my stash.

And that's all! I so hope you enjoy this kit as much as I did! I really tried to do those gorgeous papers and goodies justice.
