Dreaming Valentine

This was Challenge Number 8 for the Amazing Digi Scrap Race. I had to scraplift my scrappin' hero's design....then I had to use a star and add the word "dream." I really liked how this one turned out.

This is a valentine for my son to give gmas and such. (Don't look Mimi!)

I used elements from three designers.

Kris Myers- Photo Elements

Tammy Moore-Vintage Valentine-Bingo Card

All the rest is a mega cute kit from Audacious Designs- Love Wrangler

My Scrapping Hero is Kirsty Wiseman. Who has enjoyed her digital freebies. But she is also a great paper artist. I love all the yummy layers and mixed media that she uses. I chose to lift a great card from her Studio Calico gallery. I tried to stick to the LO of the card. Here is the LO I lifted:

I wanted to have a cute card like she did that didn't have bingo....and I do have them. I could have scanned them and made a precious card....but laptop is still dead. I have hopes that it can be repaired. Keep your fingers crossed and thanks for stopping by to look.

Oh....another week of 365 day LOs.....

Amazing Digi Scrap Race friend Bobbie from Canada, who is also a member of the K2K design team, and I are partners again in The Amazing Digi Scrap Race over at Natural Designs in Scrapbooking. We are team 55 better known as The Killer B's. Anywho.... this race lasts for 6 weeks and is filled with lots of challenges. The challenges have you scrapping in ways you normally wouldn't. Here is what I have so far.

I Love All the Pieces of You was challenge one where I had to cut a photo in three pieces with little tears.
Rachel is a scraplift of the first LO I made over at Go Digital Scrapbooking. I had to use all the same journaling and three new techniques.
Sam Take me With YOU! had to have three fanciful elements. I used four....I'm an over achiever! LOL!Wonder was a LO with no pictures but with 3 frames. I so do not like LOs like this...but what can I say.

Boy was a funny project. I had to take one of Bobbie's LOs. Flip the LO and rotate it 45 degrees then make sure I used the same amount of elements when I scraplifted it. Really funny, but it turned out okay.

Well...I really need to get caught up on my 365 layouts and some Valentine projects I have started. Hopefully I will have something more to share soon.

365 Day Entry

Now, I'm not promising how long I can carry this off, but I have been doing a little photo taking everyday. The point I guess is to celebrate my everyday life. So somewhere down the road my great great grand children can see how things were in the good old days and begin comparing me with the cave men.

My pictures are not great by any stretch of the imagination. I tried to take a picture of what my mind was on that day. These first two LOs are for New Years day to the 8th. I don't really like that I don't have a whole week on one two page LO, so I'm going to have to fix that eventually. I'm going to do the weekend later today. Then I may put all of next week on one page so then I can start with one week on two pages. Like you really care about hearing all of my random thoughts. Oh well....I hope everyone has a great week

Some LOs to Start the Year

This is a book that I made for a class at The Crafty Scrapper. I will be teaching the class on February 28th. This is a sweet little KI composition notebook. I used my new Dream Cuts to create this really cute memory book.
I did some doodling and some Cuttlebugging.
I don't want all of Sam's picts to get messed up, so I drew some picts of him to help you visualize.
This is a page for friends. There is a place for four friend picts. Then you lift the flap to write about each friend.
This little page was made so all Sam's interests could be recorded and when we lift up each triangle, we will see Sam.

This is a pop-up box that will have pictures of Sam throughout the year so we can see how it changes.This is an accordian album where I can put all the picts from his field trip.
This page has many layers. It is a 3-D page.
This book is just a lot of fun. I love it!

This is my sweet Cat. I think she is gorgeous.
My brother's family Christmas card. I couldn't help but scrap it.
My guy Luke's Christmas concert.

I think the year scrapping wise has started out pretty good. I love scrapping about my family and the people I love the most.
