Scrap It With a Song (Week 28)

Hello!  Phew what a crazy week it's been so far!  We've had a lot of personal issues going on at work so it's been a little nuts!  Julia was sick last week and one of the manager's sister passed away suddenly and the other manager under me his mom had a stroke, so I've been working a lot!  I was excited to see a new challenge up on the Scrap it with a Song site of course!  I needed a project tonight!  It's funny that I just had these pictures printed up on monday, so it worked out perfectly!  This is my silly husband!  My family has a tradition of hanging spoons on our noses at the dinner table, and it drives him nuts, well let's just say we finally got him to play!!  :D  The picture makes me laugh. hehe.  I used October Afternoon paper of course!  (Ducks in a row, fly a kite and thrift store)  Some vintage postage stamps I had purchased on ebay !  The song this week is "My Guy" by the Supremes!  Yay!

On another topic thank you to Stacy over at the Scrapbooking Cottage!  I won the Bo Bunny prize pack she was giving out!  Yay!  I just ordered the Crate Paper Restoration kit from her too!  Check out her Blog and her Store, she's got great prices!!  Thank you again!!!  Here's what I won!

ArtfulDelight Challenge #1

I went paper shopping today and I am so excited about all my new paper!  I got this Imaginisce line in the mail today along with some pretty prima papers, then I found a scrapbook store about an hour from my house today, and it's probably a good thing that it's an hour from my house because I got the Imaginisce Apple Cider, Echo Park Feels like Home, Bo Bunny Olivia, Bo Bunny Winter Joy, and the Bo Bunny whooligns lines today :D  I'm a happy girl!  I still want the My Little Shoe Box Harmony line & Sassafrasslass Indie Girl papers!  Then for now I'll be content!  But ANYWAY besides my sad sad paper addiction, I created this based off this sketch challenge being held over at ArtfulDelights, go check it out!!!

Circle Time :D

I finally figured out how to scrap the pictures from the fair back in 2006, yes I know it was 4 years ago!  I am super excited on the way this turned out!  I used one of the new accucut dies over at the paper niche and everything just came together so fun :D  I saved my favorite picture to scrap solo, I think it's so neat...
Tomorrow it's back to work!! I hope everyone has a great week and look forward to checking out all your projects throughout the week!

Scrap it With a Song (Born To Be Wild)

Scrap it with a Song's challenge this week is Born to Be Wild!  I was set to go back to work today after my week of vacation, but Julia has come down with strep throat!  So we spent the morning at the children's hospital and now she's lounging on the couch!  So I had to call out from work today and she's on her way to Grandma's tonight!  I still had the sassafrasslass pad out from yesterday, so I used it for this challenge!  This is my bestfriend and her husband at a red light while we were vacationing in coco beach this summer!

Pink Challenge & Scrap it with a Song.

Hello Everyone!  Today I got to spend the day with a close friend, which was great to catch up!  I made this and it took me all day, lol.  I for the first time created one thing for 2 challenges.  This is for the Paper Niche's Pink Challenge as well as my fav Scrap it With a Song Vouge Challenge.  This is a fantastic chipboard circle I picked up at the niche and I believe it's about 8".  The background is DCWV and luminarte and the reverse scallops is K&co.  The flowers are a combo of handmade, may arts, recollections, k&co and Kaiser.  I hope everyone has a great night!  And I just wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate the comments :D  They do inspire me!  You all rock!

Thrifty Vintage Find!

 I love going to thrift shops looking for fun stuff, well today I hit the motherload of vintage fun!  I picked up this awesome sewing box from the early 70's filled with great stuff!  After I picked out what I wanted this is what I ended up with!  All for $8!  How can you beat that???  I can't wait to incorporate some of this into my projects.  I also found a pair of vintage metal schoolhouse scissors, but I left them in the car, but they are just as cool.

Creative Scrappers #125

I am coming a bit out of my comfort zone with colors on this one.  This paper, in which I do love I won from the paper variety & treasure box club kits.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had the perfect picture for it!  Julia's first day of school picture for 2nd grade!  So I created this based off Creative Scrappers Sketch #125.  The red is embossed core'dnations and the music notes in Marah Johnson/Creative Imaginations.  Star stamps are of course Tim Holtz.  And I think that Tim Holtz mini stapler is the BEST scrap purchase I have ever made, if you don't have one, you need one.  Here's the sketch!
