GOOD!! At 123 Challenge Blog

This month's challenge at 123 Challenge Blog:

What a challenging challenge!

I have never scrapbooked with copper before. I dug up an old, embossed sheet of copper color vellum from K& Co. which has been in my stash for over ten years  lol! The vellum is quite sturdy, enough to be background paper.

It took me awhile to figure out what colors match with copper, but I think the olive green, gold and white work pretty well!

Talk about stash busting...I used Magic Mesh, Jolee's 3D stickers and a metal rimmed tag. I think they were all purchased in the 90s! I didn't intend to use old stuff, it's just what spoke to me. I added new items as well..the knit flower, card, and copper glitter glue.

I LOVE how the copper seems to bring out the glow of the photos. I also love seeing everyone else's projects and how they incorporated this challenging color as well.

The photos are of my little niece, Caroline, on her second Christmas. And yes, she is a good little girl!

This next one, my third for 123 Get Scrappy, has a one word title, spots of purple ink, and a little banner under one of the photos. These are my oldest girls with my cute little niece, Caroline!

What a bunch of cute girls!

Need For Speed

Here is another for November 123 Get Scrappy...

I used three ribbons in between the two photos. I used more than one photo, and I have six little brads inside my arrows.
For some reason, I find it very hard to scrapbook pictures of track events. I also find track events very hard to photograph, but these didn't turn out so bad.  It is fun to do a sporty page now and again!


123 Get Scrappy! November challenges

It's November, and I have done three challenges at 123 Get Scrappy

I love these challenges! They are simple enough to do, I like the choices and I always end up with pages I like.

For this page I have a one title word, some spots of black ink and a little banner I made out of twine and tape. 
These are two of the very many foster kitties I have cared for over the years. I had these two sweeties for about four weeks before they were old enough to be adopted into good homes

LM 215 Waves


This challenge was to use only one photo.
This was a great opportunity for me to use this beautiful wavy, metallic paper. I never used it before, because it is such nice paper I didn't want to cover it with photos....the perfect paper for a one-photo page!!



This challenge was to remember someone special!

This is my Grandma Collins..she passed away almost two years ago, at the age of 90. She lived a good long life! My cousin Roxann (who is in the photo) posted this on Facebook and I just had to print it out..I do not have many of Gramma in her last few years.
I used peachy patterned papers. I gold-dipped a naked chipboard frame, used gold paper for the title and heart accents. I also played with my new Artiste cricut cartridge for those borders.
