Brown Eyed Boy - Scrap Orchard CT Entry

So I finished....and now I am totally second guessing myself!! But I really LOVE the layout I made - just now thinking that it might be too similar to the one I did last week. Oh well! I'm using it!

Here's a peek at the kit used:

And here's my layout: (doesn't look like it came from the same kit - huh!)

And yes - the pic isn't my little man. It's my bestfriend's little man - isn't he adorable!!

So now I wait until Monday to find out the results! (we'll be camping on Sunday when the results are posted) I'm cool if I don't make it to week 4 - this was definitely a fun challenge!!!

Summer treat!

Over the weekend I was able to sit down and scrap during little man's naptime. I've been wanting to scrap his first ice cream cone experience for a while and finally got the chance to do it! I'm pretty pleased with the end result :)

So yesterday was a very anxious day! The results for the week 3 contestants for the Scrap Orchard CT contest were posted....but they waited until close to midnight to release the results! (there were so many amazing lo's that I'm surprised it didn't take them longer!). I'm very happy to report that I did make the week 3 list! I'm currently working with this kit - Far, Far Away - and hope to have my layout finalized by tomorrow! The deadline isn't until Thursday but I'd like to get it posted and done!

New Layouts!

On Tuesday night I did a speed scrap at Scrap Matters with two of my online friends. I had a lot of fun and was able to finish just under the deadline :) This is the layout I created - it's a scraplift of Britt and I really love it!

And next layout used Lyndsay's awesome new kit!! Juicy Citrus!!! Amazing colors, papers, elements, word-art - this kit is a must have!!!

OMG! Made it thru to week 2!!

So last week I posted about the Creative Team challenge going on over at Scrap Orchard. I was blown-away by all the awesome layout's posted that I thought there was no chance that I would make it thru to the next week. Imagine my surprise that my name was on the week 2 list!!

This is the kit they decided to use to challenge us this week:

It's definitely outside my comfort zone! So I played around with a couple of different layouts before deciding to post this one:

I love that it is still me! I have no clue if I'll make it to week 3 or not - I'm just going with the flow! If you'd like to see the other amazing layout's submitted with this kit, check them out here. Until next time!

Speed Scrap!

During Blake's nap yesterday, I was able to sit down and participate in a Scrap Orchard Make it Snappy challenge. A Make it Snappy is an speed scrap. We were given 7 instructions and 2 hrs to finish the product. I created the following layout:

I thought it was perfect since it was father's day! I'll be participating in more speed scraps - it was a lot of fun!

Summer, Popcorn & Trouble!

Here are a few layouts I've done the past few days. The first couple are using new products from Sarah Morgan Designs which will be available tomorrow. Very fun stuff!!! Make sure to check it out - you won't want to miss the release day sale :)

And this layout I did for a challenge. Lliella Designs (which is available at Sweet Shoppe Designs) hosted this challenge on her blog - all I had to do was use one of her kits and brown paper. So that was pretty easy. I really like the layout I created - Blake is full of trouble!!

Creative Contest!

So to help get my creative juices flowing - I've decided to participate in the Scrap Orchard Creative Team Contest. Each week, the contestants are given a kit - and get to make amazing layouts! This is the first week....and after looking at the talent in the gallery, I'm not quite sure I'll make it to week 2. But I had so much fun putting together this layout of Blake :)
