Blog Candy for a Cause

My good friend Jenn participates in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and she needs your help! To help raise money for her walk in April 2010, she is offering some blog candy. How this is working is, for every dollar you donate, your name goes into the drawing. So if you donate $10 you get 10 chances! She is also offering chances if you link about it to your blog or facebook. Hop on over to her BLOG to learn more. Let me tell you....she always gives the BEST goodies!!!! Pin It

Use It Up!

Over at one of my favorite chatty (and I mean chatty!) hangouts, Memory Scrappers, Jenn holds monthly Use It Up Challenges. She sets certain challenges for us and we receive points for items we have created throughout the month. The person with the most points at the end of the month gets an awesome surprise from Jenn. (she always gives such great prizes!!!). One of the challenges this month was either to use black and white photos on colored paper, or colored photos on black and white paper. I chose to do black and white photos on the colored is my take.

I actually got to use this layout for 2 challenges, On Memory Scrappers and Scrap Around The Clocks Sketch Challenge group. Here is the sketch that was offered on SATC

Color Challenge

Over at Scrap Around The Clock, Amy has started a new group called Color Challenge. She selects a picture or ad that really catches her eye, then challenges us to do a layout using the colors in the photo. Her first pick is full of gorgeous colors! Take a look

And here is my layout using those bright beautiful colors.

I just love this picture! It looks as if my granddaughter Josslyn and her daddy Jakob are sharing secrets, while uncle Rick tries listening in.

Here It Is!

My very first design team challenge with Scrap Around The Clock Challenges. Here were the guidelines for this challenge. No patterned paper, must use masking, brads, and flowers.

For the masking, I used my moms Cricut Expressions machine (cuz I only have the baby one) and cut a large scrolly shape, laid it on some light pink cardstock and used white ink around the edges, then followed with a darker pink ink for shading. I then used a fine tip memory marker and made dashes around the whole design. I also used the Cricut for the lettering and leaves. I love making leaves! I usually cut them in at least two different colors and do some shading on them with a water painting technique I do using markers. Then I run them through the Cuttlebug with embossing folders, and finish up buy wrapping them around a marker to curl the edges a bit.
