I'm Back

Been out of action for a while.  The family has been battling the flu... pretty nasty... but we're all better now.  Have been getting scrapping withdrawal symptoms.  Got back into it with a with this LO for 1,2,3 Challenge.

The challenge for August was to use the colour: Yellow, Technique: Misting and the Word: Sunshine.  Found a lovely pic of Brittany at the beach, soaking up the sunshine.  I used a KI Memories Hula Lace Cardstock paper as a mask with Sunflower glimmermist for my background.  The title says "turn your face towards the sunshine and the shadows will disappear" made with dymo and rubon.  Basic Grey and Collage Press pp's with a Martha Stewart punches and some ribbons and lace for a bit of texture.

Challenge Heaven - Word Challenge

This challenge was done at the beginning of the month and I had quite a bit of fun with it.  The word you had to use was "Two" and you also had to add a banner/bunting somewhere on your LO.    Found this old photo of Luke and Brittany when they were little.... they were so cute!!  Used some bright October Afternoon, Scenic Route & My Little Shoebox pp's.  As the title was "two peas in a pod" I cut out the pea pods from the pp to make my banner then added a cute little cluster.

YAY!!! - Challenge Wins

Very excited to have my LO's chosen for the Kraft It Up  and 1,2,3 Challenges for July.  I love these challenge sites... the talent on these sites is absolutely amazing.  I won a $15 voucher from Scrapbooking from Scratch for the 1,2,3 challenge and a $20 voucher with free postage from Handmade by Suzanne for the Kraft It Up challenge... bring on the shopping.  

These were the LO's.
