Birthday Bash Layouts

I scrapped a little this week for the Creative-Scrappers Birthday bash. Here are a few of the layouts I did based on their sketches:

Funny Forest Challenge:

For this challenge we were required to use a tree on our layout. The tree on this page was scraplifted from a layout in the March/April issue of Scrapbooks Etc.:



Die Cut Shapes Challenge:

We were required to use only die cuts with our picture. This is one of my favorite pictures of the girls when they were little. Oh how I miss my little girls!



Stamp-It Challenge:

We were required to use rubber stamps on this layout. These pictures were taken last Christmas eve after we returned home from our traditional Christmas Eve dinner with our family friends:

Early Bird Challenge

Yesterday Kristine posted an "Early Bird" challenge for those of us who were itching to get started on the Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash. I was in the scrapping mood, so I did this page from Jenna's graduation (could that really have been a year ago already?). This picture was taken as she and her fellow students were doing their processional into the auditorium - and of course she hates it, but I love it because she looked so happy! I love this Little Yellow Bicycle paper and it just happened to match her school colors. I cut out the center and flipped it so that I could use both sides:

Newest Pages

I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been working on some pages. I've been trying to fill in the gaps in Kristin and Jenna's albums since I no longer do my pages chronologically. Here are my newest pages using sketches from Creative-Scrappers:

This is Kristin at 6 months. I thought she was adorable (but I wasn't entirely objective). The circle under the picture is stitched to the page using patterned vellum:



Kristin as an adorable 14-month old:




Kristin at 6 years old - still adorable (and I'm still not objective):



Kristin on her European adventure. She celebrated her 19th birthday in the Austrian Alps!

A Few New Pages

These are a few pages I created from sketches during March but have never added to the blog. I actually completed all the challenges this month (could my scrapping slump be over?) The best news is - I won the drawing for March's prize at Creative-Scrappers! I don't normally win anything so that's big for me.
