After 10

It's eleven o'clock now and I've just tucked myself in for the night after a day of scrapping with the ladies of Scrappersatsg.

It was our Annual Christmas Party (yup, in November!) and it was definite blast! We started off with a guessing game for our Monito-Monita (Secret Santa). My Monito (or Monita?) was Andros and here are the layouts I made (which I couldn't post immediately because it would give me away).

"All Smiles"

The challenge went something like this:

Something round and something clear, so sorry that deadline is near... Then, add something hard, definitely not lard.

"Fab Five"

The second challenge mechanics were:

Something long, something small, that's not all but you'll never go wrong then add something soft to finish it off.

The last challenge was to make a layout for your mom/dad. Mine was Cecel and I decided on 2 photos - one of Rain (her niece) and she and her husband. I wasn't able to take a picture of the finished layout of Rain but I intend to finish the one I have of her (and her husband) and photograph it soon.


{Create} Challenge
"Funny Pink Riding Hood'

Eye of newt, toe of frog, adder's fork, lizard's leg and fillet of a fenny snake, those are the ingredients for this latest concoction of mine. Thanks to the sweet and encouraging words (and works) from fellow scrappers, I've been inspired to finish this entry to Sookie's "witchy" November challenge for {Create}. My only problem with it are that the "swirls" may not look like swirls (but they are!).


Bazzil Blackbird, White and Light Pink, Grant Brights Pink, Sassafras Serendipity "Sunshine Lollipop", Doodlebug Limeade Serenade, KI Memories Pop Culture, Basic Grey chip stickers, Bag o' buttons, Francheville mini brads. and white metallic clip.


Handcutting, Used decorative scissors and Craft Robo (lettering)

Hope everyone has a great week!


The Apple of My Eye

HMITM # 92
"The Apple of My Eye"

I've been struggling to finish this Sunday night but I wasn't able to. I've been having "scrapper's block" (is there even such a word?) for a while and I can't seem to finish a layout. I'll start off strong, maybe even lay out the details and embellishments, then half-way through I'll change my mind and use a different design/element.

For this challenge, we needed to make use of 9 different colored cardstock and 2 staples. After finally managing to make use of 9, I couldn't factor in the staples so I left it at that (or I wouldn't be able to finish!). The butterflies were cut using Craft Robo (the big ones are paper-piecings, tedious but worth it!), and even the bright green "lace cardstock" with apple print was cut using that machine (too bad it can't cut 12 x 12 paper or I'd be making lace cardstocks by the bulk).

Our Monito-Monita at Scrappersatsg has started and I can't wait to scrap!
