Get Your Scrap On!

...with VSBN, well actually it's over but you can participate in challenges and upload until this Sunday, February 8th! I had so much fun and finished 4 layouts, plus part of two others!
I won 2 prizes too! Plus there will be more prizes given to participants for various challenges!
So come on what are you waiting for? Find out all the information HERE.

Here is one of the layouts I completed this weekend. Sorry for the bad photo my camera was having issues! This was for Lynn's (yes the Unity Designer) challenge. It's Elementary!

This was a super fun challenge! This was the challenge - use as many "letters" as possible:
Use the following as your guide when creating your layout and try to include as many “letters” as you can.
S … is for STAMPING! Show me how you incorporate stamps onto your scrapbook pages.
C … is for CHIPBOARD! .
R … is for RIBBON, floss, thread, whatever!
A … is for ALPHAS (stickers, rub-ons, etc).
P … is for PATTERNED PAPER! Use at least two or three different
patterned papers on your layout to add lots of visual interest. (My friend Natalie about had a heart attack about this one - she has issues with patterned papers!)
B … is for BUTTONS!
O … is for ONE, Two, Three … as in numbers!
O … is for … well … O! As in CIRCLES …
K … is for “KUDOS” to you for taking part in this challenge
and getting another page done in the process!

Well I used several of the letters - see my problem is I read the challenge get it in my head - print off the sketch if there is one - this one there WAS - and it was fab!
And go to work! I don't always remember the challenge EXACTLY and sometimes I forget things especially when there's lots to remember like this one!!
Oh well I am still happy with the page and thrilled I did a page from our Honeymoon to Maui!
This page is of us arriving at our hotel and the goodies at the hotel! It was so amazing!
And I DID manage to use 3 different patterned papers from 3 different manufacturers!!!
I don't have an issue with patterns but I thought that was pretty impressive!
This was the first time I used the strips for my journaling - I LOVE IT!
and don't those Pink Paislee alphas match Pacific Point wonderfully?!?!?!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
