Last Dip layout a Winner at Practical Scappers

Well...I'm on a roll. My Last Dip layout (see a few posts ago) won this week for the felt challenge at Practical Scrappers. Feeling loved! I gotta say that I'm really loving the challenges (all the boards) and this Practical Scrapper board is all about "using up" product you already have....seems silly...but it's very practical...ha ha!!

Go Joe Go! Layout

This layout is using a sketch from LetsCaptureTheseSketches .. And was also for a "countdown" challenge on the Personal Scrapper Board (crop going on). Countdown was 5 photos, 4 pp's, 3 embellies, 2 diff alphas, 1 journal box. I used the LYB Traveler line because those bikes are just too cute and I love these colors. These photos are 2 years to go back and pull out old ones sometimes. I also used a Galaxy marker around the edges of the photos. TFL.

Last Dip Layout

This layout was really fun. It is a combination of 2 challenges. First was for a sketch at Stuck Sketches and also this weeks challenge at Practical Scrappers (see link at left) which was to use "felt". I used felt from 3 different Fancy Pants sets and also the felt Alphas are American Craft. PP is Sassafras & journal spot is LYB. Notice that I stitched the little yellow accents on that cute little fishy. Journaling is about how we can still swim in September in Phoenix. TFL!!

Beauty (Cosmo for ScrapFIT Workout #4)

This layout is a challenge for ScrapFIT workout #4. No people in the photo and use Cosmo Cricket product. I used my kit from Scrapbook Circle (Aug 09) that had some Cosmo Early Bird papers. This pic was taken on our family vacation to Ohio and we went hiking at Old Man's Cave.

H2O Layout

This layout is from a sketch at Unscripted Sketches (#23). Plain & simple. I did splash some white paint in the lower left corner. Love this picture of Joseph getting a drink and all the water is running down his arm.

School (Alpha) Layout

I've had this chipboard letter "background" saved for about a month. I can't seem to throw it away, but can never quite figure out how to use it. So, this week at Practical Scrappers (see link at left) the challenge is to use your "extra letter stickers". Well, I took that challenge to mean that it was time for me to use this "trash" that I had sitting in my scrap area! I used the 9/09 monthly kit from Personal Scrapper which features October Afternoon's new Report Card line.

First Post

Well, I've decided I better get myself a blog. So this is my test post.

I'm going to attach a photo so I know how to do that too.

This is Joseph on his first day of school (Kinder) 8/12/09.
