Thank you SO much for the heads up on the challenges ladies...I knew I could count on ya'll!!! Unfortunately I don't own a cricut (that was one of the challenge requirements at My Pink Stamper)......I'd never leave the house if I did....lol. I was a day late on getting in on the Frosted Designs color challenge. I am just glad I didn't dream it....LOL. I find myself laying in bed some nights trying to think of how I am going to do a layout and then have weird dreams. Like the time I dreamt I went to this used bookstore here in Knoxville called McKays......it's one of my favorite places in the world! Well, I dreamt I was outside digging thr the freebie box where people dump stuff they can't sell and I found a bunch of scrapbooking paper. I think it was bo Bunny Love Bandit at the time cuz I was REALLY wanting it......LOL. I need help...badly! Think maybe there is a 12 x 12 step program? HAHAHHAHAHAHA!!!
Where was I? LOL
Oh yeah.....well how bout I just get to the pink and black and green layout. I DID find a challenge it works for...so I'm happy now :) For the Creative Belli Blog color spray challenge. Create a project using any color of spray. I chose White.....actually it's called "air chalk" which is basically chalk in a can.....soooooo cool!!! And it won't come off or rub off, you have to wash it off...so unless we have a flood or one of the boys tries to flush the layout down the toilet I think I'm ok ! And for The Sisterhood Of Scrap Blog Hop Challenge #2 I believe.....this is really cool...each day drop by thier blog and they will send you to another blog and a whole new challenge! This one is over at Carla's blog My Scrappyness. Her challenge is to use at least 3 different types of alpha's.
I didn't like this at first...but the more I look at it the more I love it. Yup....LOVE! Such a strong word for something so......pink.......LOL. And note that once again the ransom note look shows up....LOL.
Not sure what the papers are....in a pack from Big Lots labeled PUNK. Same paper pack I used for Brandons layout the other night. The alphas are thickers, some green felt things picked up in the felt crafting section of Hobby Lobby for $1.99 for 300 letters. No joke.....and some Rusty Pickle halloween alphas and some home made doodling. And yeah...that's me and my eyebrows...they needed a good weed eating.....I look like R Lee Ermy in Full Metal Jacket.....ewwwwww!!
Next is makeover time over at The Pink Elephant (good grief now I am seeing pink elephants!!) They challenge you to take an older layout and either do it over or add to it. So I took this layout....
And added to it some
Next up....still thinking pink......The Pink Ninja and Prompt #35...song lyrics. Had to use lyrics from a song, cardboard, and flowers. I chose the song "Do You Love Me" by George Strait (Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend, and if you do, dont be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to, I think this is how love goes, check yes or no) Its very sweet! It's about a little boy and girl in school passing notes and asking them to check yes or no if they love them.....and it fits PERFECT with this photo..
By the way.....in the song they grow up and all thru school are in love with each other and get married. LOL. Even tho it's a country song there is no cheating, drinking or killing :) But it's still pretty good.....LOL.
I used some basic card stock and my K & Co Lifes Journey papers for this one. And LOTS of buttons. The few tiny flowers at the top are from the bridal section of Hobby Lobby.....77 cents!!! I'm tellin ya, you gotta looka round that place! These same flowers woulda been $3 or more in the scrapping section..
OHH the sketch is by Helen Croft. I saw it today and loved it!!
And I am finally near the end :)
For the May GDT sketch at Sketchy thursdays
I'm not please with the angle of the shot but you work with the weather and the lighting ya know? This is Bob and Jesse when he was a week little bean :) I used Core'dinations cardstock, MME paper, LOTS of Bo Bunny rubons, the little owls I cut from another dp from paper studio, Alpha's are Stickabilities. I TRUED using my stamps but I need to practice first. So I covered over them with the rubons and the tag. Still turned out really sweet tho :)
