Eight years old

A new challenge is waiting for you at The Studio Challenges.  This one is all about numbers!  We want to see lots and lots of numbers!  Here is mine to share.

Even though this happened 18 years ago, it still s feels like yesterday!  Just look at my girl, looking all grown up but still celebrating with a Poo Bear cake.  Aww!

For this layout it's definitely showing the hoarder in me because I have kept this numbers diecut piece for years and this challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to use it up.  And I was determined to make it work!!

Since it's a birthday celebration you have to add sparkle, right?  So I highlighted all the 8's with orange stickles to really make them pop.  I then added coordinating embellishments and a simple title.  Also, the background paper looks like confetti so I felt it was a perfect match.  This layout was a different approach for me and I'm pretty happy with my turnout.

Now it's your turn!  I do hope that you find the time to join in with us at The Studio Challenges.  Be sure to share with us too, I'd love to see what you come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Scrapping to you.

Donuts Make Everything Better!!

 A new challenge is up at The Studio Challenges!  We are asking you to create a layout using half patterned paper.  The other half is completely up to you on how you want to design it.  Here is mine to share...

Donuts make everything better!  Wouldn't you agree?  I do!!  The proof is in the picture.  Valentine's day happen to fall on my Grammie day so we had to celebrate!

I really love the look of a half patterned paper layout.  The flow is so balanced and I'm all about that when it comes to scrapbooking and in life too.  It's a design that never goes out of style and the possibilities are endless!

While deciding on what I wanted to create with this photo I surprisingly stumbled across this donut paper by American Crafts.  It was perfect!!  It's funny how you don't even realize all the prints that lurk in your paper collection until you start digging.  I then added some fun coordinating embellishments and a catchy title.  I love the turnout and it just makes me laugh when I at this because their love for donuts is real.

Now it's your turn.  Go get creative and have some fun with this challenge!  If you need some more inspiring ideas be sure to check out the rest of the teams work at The Studio Challenges.  I do hope you join in and be sure to share with us!

Thanks for stopping by and as always, happy scrapping to you!]
