Scraplift Yourself

This Challenge from Shimelle's NSD of challenges was to scraplift yourself/your work.  Her blog post can be found  here.  So I chose to scraplift my original layout.   Here is the outcome.  It is about a dinner and scrapping time at a new friends house. It includes the bunny ears napkin ring holder, the dinner menu and the bunny invitation will be on a 6x12 add on sheet.

Use Your Die Cut Machine

This was a perfect and true challenge for me!!! Use Your Die Cut Machine was one of Shimelle's NSD challenges. I have silhouette which I purchase several diecuts during the 1/2 off sale.  It was now time to put into action.  The papers, embellishment are from Echo Park's All About a Boy!  This was also based on SHannon Tidwell from Two Peas in a Bucket.  here is my LO. It is about my son, dressed in his school uniform, backpack on the ground next to him, and my husband, with laundry bag in hand, hunting for a squirrel before we leave for school in the am.  Welcome to my world of country living!

Create a two page Layout

Shimelle in her NSD challenges, asked us to create a two page layout, which has had much discussion on the Two Peas in a Bucket forum.  Here is my two page Layout.  I actually made 3 so far.  The pictures are of our 2 year old cotton picker, it picks the cotton, packs it, forms the cotton into a semi-large rectangle and spits it out the back.  Sound silly, looks silly but is quite amazing compared to when I was a child and the cotton was dumped into a trailer and we had to jump on it to "stomp it down" so more cotton would fit into the trailer.  Once the trailer was full, the trailer was hauled to the gin to wait in line for the cotton to be sucked out.  AMAZING!!

Use a Divided Page Protector

This was a great challenge because I have ALWAYS wanted to try out Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love October Challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket.  I just purchased the 8 pocket page protector from 2peas.  So when Shimelle challenged us to scrap with-divided-page-protector, I knew I wanted to wrap up my son's birthday pics with this challenge.  Here is my Layout.  I did combine the 8 page pocket divider with a 6x12 divider too.

Scrapping with square Photos

Shimelle challenged us to Scrap with Square Photos in this (Inter) National Scrapbooking Day.  I used a LO from Lisa Day over at Big Picture Classes

My New Favorite Line

Shimelle challenged us to use our "favorite" line on one layout in this NSD challenge.  I just purchased the All about a Boy line from echo park, papers, stickers and journaling card.  I also used up an old Bo Bunny diecut "Boys and their Toys", some raw chipboard, which I covered with Viva Inka Gold w/ MME Bling in middle, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Letters, orange vintage Heidi Swapp orange arrow and a newer mistables arrow from Pink Paislee.  Here is my LO.

Use brads and eyelets

This layout is based on Shimelle's NSD challenge use brads and eyelets.  I ended up loving the 3 big brads at the bottom.

Use Sprays and Mists

This Layout was created based on Shimelle's NSD challenge to  scrapbooking-with-spray-inks-and-mists/  I hope you can see the "pumpkin" tattered angels drips and mists on the yellow and blue.

Scrapping with PInk

This LO is based on Shimelle's 1st NSD of the day.  Scrap with pink.  You can find the blog post here.
I did use some ephemera, the red tags from our Luv Bug scavenger hunt.

Scrap square photos

My layout is based on Shimelle's NSD Challenge #22  scrap square photos. I also used Lisa Day's sketch as a basis for my LO.
