File Folder Album

Office supplies lead to fantastic creations.  Look around and find some treasures hiding!  This was a class we held here a few weeks ago and now it is time to share the whole thing.  I used mostly Simple Stories Year-O-Graphy and included every month in this Year long album.  I love that photos can just be added and I'll have an entire album finished in the end!  Hope you enjoy:

Crop Challenge

This time I am posting our crop challenges here.  I have some really great challenges set up for all of you coming to our 12 hour crop this Saturday, March 31st! 

The first one up is actually a challenge from Elle's Studio this month.  I loved the idea so much, I decided to pass it on to all of you to complete.  The challenge is to scrap your top 5.  Top 5 songs you love, top 5 places you love, top 5 shoes you love, top 5 funny faces your child makes, maybe even top 5 scrapbook collections you love!  Get creative with this one! 

Check out the challenge on Elle's Studio blog

The second scrapbook page challenge is one found on Pinterest:

And one last challenge for the day:  A card!  Enter all of these for more chances to win great prizes!

Travel Mini Album w/ American Crafts

Making this travel mini album was so fun!  I love American Crafts Amy Tangerine collection - The colors are so bright and perfect for the summer travel season... We have this class coming up on April 23, 2012.  Really excited to see everyone create these for their adventures

Precious little boys and girls

These are the moments that I cherish.  A captured time such as this when the new big brother and big sister are kissing their little brother who just arrived in the world the month before.  Showing their love for him touched my heart and in black and white, I feel like it is that much more sentimental.  I used Echo Park This & That Charming and Graceful collections.

Authentique Challenge

It is no secret that I love working with Authentique.  They just announced their March challenge on their blog.  They have a layout and card challenge each month and I always love a good challenge!  So I decided to join in this month and play with Authentique's Gathering.  

The Sketch:  

My version:

Usually I try to change something on the layout but this all went together so well I didn't think I needed to.  This is my friend's beautiful daughter who we love to spend time with... We don't have kids of our own so we borrow nieces and nephews and friend's kids to bring fun places :)

Check this sketch out over at Authentique's Blog and join in the fun!

Little Yellow Bicyle Challenge

I love challenges... they make me think outside the box, get creative, and use up supplies I haven't used yet!  When Little Yellow Bicycle came out with the February/March challenge I thought, yes!  This one I must do and use Hello Fall!  I have loved this collection ever since it arrive at our LSS, Paper Paper.  I have seen what our scrappers have done with it at crops and I was ready to play too!  

Here's the challenge:

This is my interpretation:

I was really happy with how this came out.  My pages are usually not so full of stuff and it is always a challenge for me to do that so I love thinking outside of my box :)  Those corrugated cardboard shapes are my favorite!
