Ok, so tomorrow = 3 days later

Ok, here is the scrappy goodness I promised. I'm in a contest over at Treasured Scrapbooking. The challenges are really fun and, well, challenging, lol! The first of four challenges was to use the title, "Life is like a box of chocolates..." Here's my LO for that challenge:


I had a lot of fun with this LO. I did some beading for the first time and I just love the look. I will definitely be doing more in the near future!

The second challenge was to go to teleflora.com and pick which kind of girl you are. They have women broken down into different categories to make it easy for guys to pick which kind of flowers to send, heehee. There are several categories, but I picked the 'girl next door' (Kevin says that's who I am though he had no way of backing that up other than I'm not any of the other girls :)). It took me longer to do this LO, but I was definitely pleased with the outcome again. I used a couple of circles which I usually tend to shy away from. I love the bright fun colours!



I'm still thinking on the third challenge...I'll keep you posted :)

Sketchfest continues over at Paws as well. I've been having a hard time keeping up, but here is the sketch that I posted for last weeks Wednesday night sketch challenge:



The LO that I based this sketch on was done awhile ago. I had good intentions of doing a new LO, but never got around to it :( Here's the original LO:



And finally, I actually managed to start AND finish a LO in one day!! Unheard of for me, heehee. I did this LO yesterday for Monday's sketch challenge for winter sketchfest at Paws. I think this is one of my new faves, mostly because I love the picture! There was an added challenge that went along with it to recycle something on your LO, so I used some packaging from some Prima crystals and some from MM letters.




Thanks for checking out my work! I promise the family that next time there will be more kid info and less scrappy stuff, haha! For now, they're just sick and cranky, that's all the update I have! Oh, the boys got haircuts too so now they're all buzzed and cute. I think it makes R look a lot younger...almost innocent (hahahahaha!!!).
