Here is a quick card I created for a scraplift challenge at Turtle Soup. I used my Tim Hotlz accordion die in my Big Shot. I also used one of his embossing folders in the background.   So  What have you created lately?

Snow Day

I created this layout using my january kit from My Creative Scrapbook and this month's STUCK?! sketch.  The color looks a little off on my computer it is really this pretty blue.  I have been playing around with paint a little bit and tried to splatter the paint here to look like snow :D

Winter Wonderland

I created this fun layout using my kit from My Creative Scrapbook and the exclusive kit sketch!  This is last years trip to Yellowstone when the kids were excited to find snow in June!  Notice their shorts!!!!   We also learned a great lesson on that trip....  the weather in Yellowstone can change in a heartbeat.!!!

In between sharing newer work I am going to share some things that never made it to my blog... 
I created this fun memoboard when I was designing for ScrapThatMoment.  I had so much fun creating it.  I had never made anything like this.  I loved the positive quotes from this Studio Calico line.  The flowers are actually magnets :D  Hope you are getting some scrappy time today :D

I created this layout using one of Meagan's Senior pictures (taken by Dellinger Photography)   for a challenge at Turtle Soup

The challenge was a Friday inspirational challenge that show us a picture for inspiration!  Loved the blues in browns and satins in the picture so that is what I went with.  have a Happy Day!

Devil's Tower

I found this cool sketch at Stuck?!  and used it to create a 2 page layout. I also used ink by stamping the footprints on on title block to work the layout into Frosted Designs Dual Challenge

Here is my layout based on the sketch

Hope you are getting some scrappy time!

Devil's Tower Wildlife

I decided to play  along with the sketch challenge at My Creative Sketches this month.  Here is my take on this month's sketch.

I love how it turned out!  I used lots of stamps and some burlap paper and wood buttons that I had bought over the last couple of months and never used. 

Another Challenge for you

I have been scrapping away and will have lots to share.  I have been having a blasy playing along with all the challenges at Turtle Soup .  Today is January 11th, that means so far this month their has been 11 challenges posted.  That's right 1 challenge per day until the 3rd Friday of the month and then we host a mini crop!  

Today is my day to post a challenge under the "All Sorts Category" which is mainly anything not specifically tied to a layout or card.  I chose to challenge the members to alter anything.  I chose this "yard sale Shelf" to repurpose. 

I added a bit of spray paint and a bit of paper and altered it to this :D

You have all month to complete your project. You also have the option of doing either a Layout, Card or Tag or ATC. When you have completed your project add to the TS gallery and link back to here to share with us.

Why don't you come hang out and play!

My First Turtle Soup Challenge

I am so excited to share my first Turtle Soup challenge.   Today is Thursday that means it a scraplift challenge.  I choose this card from the TS gallery to lift.  Sadly I don't think I did it justice.  If you are looking for a scrappy type forum to hang out and lots of challenges give Turtle Soup a try.  Seriously every month we post 1 challenge a day every day until the 3rd Friday and then they host a mini crop with another 6-7 challenges.  Surely with that many challenges you can find something that interests you!
