Challenges a Plenty

A Sketch:

Well it's Friday again, and I've posted a DPS this week. It's not too fancy, but I think it'll be a fun layout to use, and once I pick up my photo order this week end I should be back on the road to Scrapville! hee hee

Something REALLY Unique:

My gal pal Peggy has come up with another really fab, think outside the box, scrapping challenge. First you take this test to reveal your crayon color. CLICK ME
Then you scrap "your color" and include it's opposite on your page. Your color should be the focus, and you can include other colors too, this should be FUN!
Here are my results...

You Are a Red Crayon

Your world is colored with bright, vivid, wild colors.

You have a deep, complex personality - and you are always expressing something about yourself.

Bold and dominant, you are a natural leader. You have an energy that is intense... and sometimes overwhelming.

Your reaction to everything tends to be strong. You are the master of love-hate relationships.

Your color wheel opposite is green. Green people are way too mellow to understand what drives your energy.

Delicious Divas:

Another regular challenge we have on Splitcoast is the Diva Designer Challenge. This week Ngaire Bartlam joins us and her challenge is a simple one. "To create a collage using LOTS of different stamped images. You can use this collage on wall art, or a card, or a scrapbook layout, or an ATC.. or what ever your artistic heart desires!!!"
She made an index book for her unmounted stamps, very cool!

An Announcement:

Once again it is time for Virtual Scrapbooking AKA VSBN! Tomorrow at 1:00 PM CST the first challenge will be posted and it will be followed by 3 others. Each challenge allows 2 hours for you to create, and then TIMES UP! Well you don't have to scrap the challenges as they are posted, you don't have to do them in order or even do them all. But it's always a lot of fun, and I usually get a lot done during VSBN, so stop by, we'd love to have ya!

Sketch Friday!!!

I'm really excited about my newest sketch. I actually just did this yesterday afternoon while my sickly 3 year old was napping.
Once I had it done I was wishing I could go ahead and scrap with it, but she did not sleep long enough for that...I am a pretty slow scrapper. I do have plans to use it ASAP! Hopefully I can squeeze in a little "me time" tonight or tomorrow.
I actually wish I had a specific event or series of photos in mind, but I haven't sorted through them lately and I have a BUNCH that have never seen the light of day (they're still on my laptop)!

I hope you are inspired and if you scrap with it, please link back here with a comment or on SCS, I would LOVE to see what you do!

My Valentine!

I spent a few minutes this afternoon working on this card for my dad! It's not real masculine, but I like the colors and that little mouse with the GREAT BIG heart is just so darned cute!!! I'm thinking if I get it in the mail today he'll have it by Thursday! My dad went through a knee replacement a few months back, and over all he's doing GREAT! He is incredibly resilient for a man of his age, and since he was the "first man" in my life, he deserves something special!

Last Friday I got to run off and leave my family behind to spend time with my friend and upline Debbie! She had her monthly stamper's club meeting and even though I'm not really a member, my sister and I are always welcome to drop in. We had a good time stamping had been a while, and it's always nice to sit back and do someone else's projects for a change...aren't these cute???
The candybar wrapper, uses the set "Simply Said" and was a fun project. It was quick and really easy to do!
The card involved masking off the word "hi" and sponging on Old Olive at the bottom. If you haven't tried this technique before, it's a simple way to make a BIG difference and I'll be focusing on that again in more detail soon! It also features a stamp from "So Many Scallops" available FREE in the Sale-a-bration mini. It's really cool to stamp an image and then punch it out with a coordinating punch! Another fun item from the mini is the "Love & Happiness" rub-ons, isn't this little candle ADORABLE!? I think Old Olive is one of my favorite colors!
