A New Mighty Mini

I spent much of today making a new mini scrapbook. It is a sample for an upcoming class I will be teaching. There is not much inside of it yet. I like to let the students figure out how they will use the project without my influence. I made the mini out of 6 paper bags. I love the patterned paper I was given to use. The flowers were created from cupcake doilies colored with a little distress ink. And thanks once again to my Grandmother for the vintage buttons. I can't believe the variety of buttons I always have at my disposal.

Until next time...

Watch out! We are playing golf!!! 

It was a good thing we were the only ones on the course that day. Hubby and I spent more time retrieving balls than getting holes in one. Apparently we were a little out of practice. I do recall snapping one photo of the drama king as he got the one and only hole in one of the game. I used these photos for the recipe challenge on Scrap 'N Chat this month.The recipe called for all kinds of goodies on your page. Head over to the forum to see what else is cooking up over there.

Until next time...

A Scraplift Challenge

I am honored again to present you with the Scraplift Challenge for Scrap 'N Chat. Today I have chosen this layout to copy. It is from Scrappyhappymom's gallery on ScrapJazz. I have been admiring it for a while now. I love the filmstrip photos, the doodles and the simple layers of paper and flowers. What inspires you?

Here's my version:

Stop over at  Scrap 'N Chat yourself and see what other challenges we have in store for you!!!

Until next time...

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL???!!! - Aug 2012 Ad/Art

I know the majority of us don't really follow football. But a few of us do. Preseason openers started last weekend among the finals for the Olympics.  So this month we are looking at ads about sports. I am listing football ads here, but you are free to find your own sport or sporting good product ad to use as your inspiration piece for your layout, card, or paper craft project this month. Just make sure to post your project at Scrap 'N Chat and tell us what ad you used and how it inspired you. For those of you with boys or men in your lives, this challenge should be right up your alley. 

Here's mine, no photos yet though.

Until next time...
