Paper Girls

I think this site is a new one for me..I don't believe I have ever done a challenge here.

http://thepapergirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2018/07/challenge-155-buttons.html

This next challege is BUTTONS!! Easy, I love buttons! I do not use them often, though, which is another thing I love about challenges...it gets me using my stash.

I have placed some tiny buttons on the stickers, to add to the cuteness and fun of the page. The animal stickers are about 13 years old! I used some of them a long time ago, and decided to finish off the sheet. I love using my old products.

Archscraps, July: colorful neighborhoods!


This month at Archiscraps:

What a great picture! I would love to go there.
The challenge is to use lots of color. I was inspired to scrap a street scene in bold colors for some very old photos of a night out on the town.
I used a coloring page city. I like the look of the black and white on very bright paper.

New projects!

I haven't been posting too many projects because I am able to bypass posting on a blog on many sites, and I forget to add them here!
I will try to be better. I plan on doing many this month because school is ending and life is calming down

This one I did for Bitten by the Bug 2...
You know I love my Cricut..always will. I have so many cute animals on cartridges but don't use them often. They go perfect on a "cute" page, which is what I worked on this time...

These are pics from Halloween 2017. Although my kids are in high school and college, they still love to dress up in costumes. Miranda still goes trick-or-treating, even though she's 16! Mir and her best friend dressed up like spaghetti and parmesan cheese, costumes they made themselves. I was skeptical when I heard the idea, but it turned out pretty cute!


I used a little mouse from Create a Critter

Another Studio Challenge

This time, a sketch!

I played around with some paints and gelatos to make circles, which I then cut out.

The Studio Challenges..........Winery


The August Tic Tac Toe challenge at Studio Challenges :


http://thestudiochallenges.blogspot.com/2017/08/13th-august-tic-tac-toe.html



I chose lace doilies, one flair button, and the color brown for this page depicting a recent trip to wine country here in Upstate NY.
I love the combination of wood and lace.


I used some very old Jolie's purple flowers here, which kind of looked like grapes. Also some Creative Memories flower and leaf stickers...again, very old. I stamped an ink pad onto the lace doilies. Thanks for lookin!!

The Stream....June at Use your Stuff


http://useyourstuff.blogspot.ca/2017/06/266-patterned-papers.html

Oh, a challenge to use five or more patterned papers? Challenge accepted! There are so many ways to incorporate patterned papers together. I don't do it often, but when I do, I think it's fun. Here, I mixed five different patterns and they are all from different manufacturers. I simply looked through my stash and chose things that had a soft green or blue tone to them. I am on a mission to use my super-old stuff, and often mix it with the new. Here, everything I used was rather old.

The photo is one of my favorites depicted the Changdeochong Stream in Seoul...I may have spelled that wrong. Getting all the Korean names right has been quite challenging. I have to look it up every time. The stream was a great place.... a nice walking area right down below from the busy streets. I headed down there many times during my eight-day stay.

The Scrap Suite May 2017

There are four May challenges over at the Scrap Suite. One was to add three wooden items to a page, which I did here:


I love how the wood goes so well with the fallish colors and the cozy feel of the page. These are my daughters at our favorite restaurant. My older two are in college now, so we are not all together that often anymore. When we are, we go to this place!
