Page 2 of Week 11 & Challenge 2



So I called Jan after I finished the first challenge. We decided to do it again. My challenge was to use something from my Clip it Up 3 times and use alcohol inks. I grabbed some bling from my Clip it Up and colored it with alcohol inks. (Note: Do not use your embossing gun to speed up the drying process. Bling will melt!) I actually had stuff arranged differently but it wasn't "anchored" to the page....just looked like some flowers floating around the page. So I moved the flowers with the bling to the bottom of the vine and added the chipboard and the butterfly.....better.
Her challenge was to use ribbon and a cuttlebug embossing folder. See her page here.

Week 11 & Challenge from Jan

So I called my sister, Jan, and told her that we should do some long distance scrappin'. Then it became a challenge. I challenged her to use one of her long Quikutz dies and her Cricut (which has been neglected in her scrappin') and she challenged me to use a stamp set I haven't used in a long time and to make my own flowers. We had one hour to complete the challenge and post to our blogs. Not exactly scrappin' together.....but, hey, we had fun. Here's my page. Go to Jan's page for her layout.

Week 9 & 10


Week 10- Chloe and I bonding, Chloe doing schoolwork and Noah finally won student of the week. So we went to McDonald's after church for his free happy meal. Then on Monday, Chloe and I cuddled and watched TV. Tuesday I worked on my cross stitched stocking that I started 7 years ago...almost done!! On Weds., it warmed a little and the kids rode scooters. On Thursday, Kayla and I went to the school board meeting to hear about the proposed budget cuts.

On a scrappin' note: All paper is from the paper studio. I cut the swirly thingies with SCAL on my Cricut that I downloaded from http://littlepiecesofmeblog.blogspot.com/ ....great site for downloading SCAL files.

Week 9-Last part of Feb./First part of March.
I spent the weekend at Jan's house....scrappin' of course. When I got home on Feb. 28, Ed put in the new faucet I bought while shopping with Jan. Ronnie got home March 1, and brought 13 dozen eggs! Eggs, anyone?? March 2, Noah celebrated Dr. Suess' B-day. March 3, I made a wedding shower gift for a co-worker's bridal shower the next day and March 4 we played volleyball. Everyone was in bed when I suddenly remembered that I had not taken a POTD....so I took a picture of my volleyball gear.

On a scrappin' note: CS is bazzil, pp is Basic Grey, flowers by Prima, and pearls from Queen & co.
