Wow, two in one day :)

Me again, I also did this Easter layout 3 days ago but just took the pictures today when I was doing my circle album. I wanted to mention too... I did that entire circle album last night at my friend Robin's in about 4 hours! If I was doing another, it would take even less time as probably at least an hour of that was the learning curve!

Circle Album

Hi all!! I am not one for making mini albums... in fact, NEVER do it as I'd much rather spend my time doing 12x12s for my family albums. BUT... I wanted to try this Make N Take out that Aimee posted on Lil Scrappers here (you need to register for the forum and then look in Make N Takes). AND, I wanted to make something for my best friend Billie who is having a rough time right now. Hope you like it.

BOM pages - finally....

Oh yay!! I have finally finished some layouts to share. I was so excited. My friend Davida and I stayed up until midnight to finish what we were working on.

These layouts are for my BOM (Book of Me). The first is the March challenge of music. I chose to do what is on my iPod right now (or what would be on it if I could remember my iTunes password at the moment, LOL). The music isn't written in as I need to buy an new Sharpie! But here is what it would be: Twilight soundtrack, the "Hawaii" song (Jason Mraz), Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Madonna, ABBA, Elvis, Dixie Chicks, Def Lepard, Diana Krall, Celine Dion, Colin James, Bryan Adams, Sting, etc, etc... depends on my mood what I like. I was trying for an "eclectic" list.

The 2nd layout is April's and the challenge was our favourite foods, using a specific layout as inspiration (the sketch) and we had to have dimensional embellishments. Mine is using the super yummy Marrakesh I got from my friend Lisa over at Lisa's Scrap Shack (look I did a link, I'm ridiculously impressed with myself, let's hope it works...) The journalling reads "I still surprise myself by how much I love ethnic food! And to think, 10 years ago, I found mild salsa spicy !!"

2Sketches4You - Sketch 23

Here is my card for this week's sketch. I love this blog but have never done a challenge before. This was my week to try new challenges! This paper was a challenge too but I loved these flowers so I cut them out and used them against this gorgeous damask. Thanks for looking!


Caardvarks Challenge

Here is a card I made for this weeks challenge over at Caardvarks... I have never done their challenges before but check their blog every week and thought "this is the week I do it!"

Cupcake Craft Challenge # 33

Here is my card based on their sketch. I got this paper in a card kit from Lil Scrappers and it is WAY outside my comfort zone but I was determined to make it work.
