I. need. to. scrap. more.

This month has just been so busy I haven't made it into my craft room much and it's driving me crazy. We've been trying to do our landscaping ourselves, been trying to have some summer fun with the kids, and on top of that we've been getting lots of company.
Next month I will lock myself in my craftroom if I have to in order to get some ME time. I think I've found a great new challenge site, The Practical Scrappers and can't wait to see what they come up with. Their goal is to help us use up our stash of scrapping goodies, this should help me get back at it.

Chef Scott

A quick layout of my son's first time cooking a meal completely on his own. This is for Scrapping Out Loud's challenge this week to create a layout about a favorite recipe.
This also works for Sisterhood of Scraps challenge to use at least one photo cropped in a circle. I was VERY happy to learn that I won the drawing for June's challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap - I can't wait to play with the goodies from last month's sponsor.

Baby Cheeks

We've been on vacation for a week and it felt so good to get back in the scraproom.
I used sketch #27 at 52 sketches and color combo #128 at Color Combos Galore. I also used the challenge at Method Playground to create the circles. The challenge was to stitch around a chipboard shape. I used a set of concentric circles, stitched around them and then took them off the layout.

Birdcage for Aunt

Another card for my Aunt who is fighting cancer, just to let her know I'm thinking of her.
I used the Card Patterns sketch for this week, pictured below. This also works for Splitcoast Stampers color challenge CC225 - kraft, saffron & night navy. And since it has 4 buttons, it works for this week's Pile It On.
