Color Challenge at Scrapbook Challenges

I did this LO for Scrapbook Challenges (http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/forum/topics/colour-challenge-7th-sept) Color Challenge. The challenge was to use red, yellow, and green in a LO. I realize some of you might not be members and be able to see the challenge. The paper I used is Recollections Monkeying Around Funky Disco Spin. My dad calls us, his children, monkeys. We were all having fun with Tyler's pirate hat is another reason I used this paper. That's why I entitled it "Argh!" The little journaling tag states that "We had just been taking pics saying, 'Argh' like a pirate. Tyler liked it so much that he's still doing it in this pic!" In the pic above I wrote that "Daddy was closing his eye since we didn't have a patch." I also wrote over each person's head who they were- me, Tyler, Emily, and my dad. I put the date- Sept 5, 2011- as well. I decided to add the bling, "family memories" sticker, and bobbin ribbon as the finishing touches. I made this LO last night before going to bed so I did it quickly! The mattes for the pictures are also Recollections Butterfly Wings. I love buying my scrapbooking supplies from Michael's! :) I'll have to get some more pics to develop soon to scrap some more. I hope you all have a great weekend!! TFL!

Labor Day LO


I made this LO for Lasting Memories Challenge #56 (http://kcclayoutchallenges.blogspot.com/2011/09/lmcb-56-sketch-using-fall-colors.html), but missed the deadline. I decided to post it on my blog anyway. I watched the movie The Grace Card while making this LO and didn't read the deadline time until after I watched the movie. The paper, borders, and journaling box is Story Tellers Club Dream On Collection. The journaling box states that "Daddy, Tammy, & Tyler came to visit Labor Day weekend. We went to the beach that morning, but I didn't get any pictures. We were all having too much fun for pictures!" It was also cool and we weren't at the beach that long. The border on the right in the little box I wrote "9-5-11 Labor Day". I just wish I would have read the deadline time before I did this LO, but I still had fun making it! The Grace Card is a good movie, too! It's a Christian movie and is in Red box! I have 2 more pics of the same night to scrap and will try to scrap them this week. I didn't want to crowd them all on the same page. TFL!

Sturdy Beggar

I did this LO for The Paper Variety's (http://thepapervariety.blogspot.com/2011/09/sticker-spotlights.html) Sticker Challenge. Even the journaling is a sticker! I put it through my Xyron Create A Sticker! The journaling states that "Sturdy Beggar is a little 'boat' behind the History Center (the new building built as part of Tryon Palace) for children to play on. It's more like the frame of a boat. Tyler's pirate hat was bought from a little shop in Beaufort, NC. We told him about the boat before we left home and he decided to wear his pirate hat!"  The paper I used was actually a part of a Momenta Birthday kit! The colorful circles kinda looks like the wheel of the ship! I didn't have any 12x12 pirate paper and the 8x8 pirate paper I have wouldn't look right on a 12x12 sheet! I have a few more pics of Tyler to scrap and plan on doing so Thursday. Please check back here on my blog to see the LO! TFL! :)
