Gone... for Today!

The Thickers have been put back into their respective packaging so I must be finished for the day.  But hey, I finished SIX layouts... yes 6!!!! I think it's a new record for me - especially considering that apparently the kids don't understand a single word that comes out of my mouth and I had several interruptions.  But that's okay, I got 6 layouts finished and I'm very happy.

The last layout started as scrapping square photos, but when I finished I realized that it works even better for 'Line Up Small Embellishments'.  I definitely didn't plan it that way but, hey, still another challenge off the list.  Besides I have plenty of square photos I plan to scrap.  However I did not use the sketch provided but plan to keep it in my sketch file.

Cardstock: The Paper Studio; Patterned Paper: American Crafts, My Minds Eye, October Afternoon; Stickers: American Crafts, Crate Paper, October Afternoon; Spray Ink: October Afternoon; Pen: Sharpie (Wow, and that's all!!!)

In the event that you're like me and kept going back and forth at Pretty Paper.True Stories. to see what Shimelle had posted as the next challenge, I've jotted down a kind of index - but be warned, it's in my shorthand.  I plan to get up in the morning and go back and read each and every one of the actual posts as well as check out each responding layout... but tonight I'm worn out.

  • Scrap in Pink
  • Scrap with 4x6 Photos

Whew!  So there are a few of these that most likely will not happen in my Scrappy Place: I don't own a Digital Cutter; I'm not really a Mood Board kind of gal; I've painted on layouts before and am not crazy about that at all; I don't own divided page protectors; scrapping with unexpected supplies may take too much creativity on my part during marathon scrapping; and scraplifting myself may be an issue because I scraplift everyone else so often I'm not sure which ones are originals!  But I'm going to do my best to get as much of the rest done as possible this week. 

So what about you? How many did you get done?  Are there any that are just out-of-the-question?  Are there any that are your favorites? Are you doing each separately or are you combining a few?  Are you going to go forward this week with the challenges to see how many you get done?  Let me know in the comments as I am very interested in how everyone feels about these projects.

  1. Well, I got 5 done today--so you win the prize for that challenge! ;-) I did spray a page to use tomorrow though. Does that count? Actually, crap, I just noticed it IS tomorrow! I really am going to try all 24, but I don't think I have that many photos.

    Thank you for the list too. I had been picking and choosing and hadn't really gotten the Big Picture.

    Love the layers on this page--the colors/patterns are perfect together!

    OK, I'm gone too. I'll start again tomorrow! Craft happy!! =D
