Scrap Update

Where oh Where to begin! I feel like every time now that I come over here to post, I have a billion things that I want to share! I guess if I posted more often, I wouldn't feel that way, now would I?!

First of all, I'll share my layouts I did over the past week. This first one is from the "So You Think You Can Scrap?" contest over on YMBD. Challenge #2 was to use your favorite ice cream flavor to inspire your layout. Here's what I did:Any guesses as to what my favorite flavor is? The vote was this weekend. Would you believe that I totally forgot about the whole thing and didn't get my vote in?! I'm so ashamed.....But happy that someone voted for me. Enough to get me to the next round! I'll be working on Challenge #3 this week.

The next layout is what I turned in for Challenge #3 over at Scrap Whispers (on time this go around I might add). Tic-Tac-Toe was the theme to use as your inspiration. Here's what I did:While I was working on it, Nessa came down and asked me what I was doing. I explained the challenge and what I had decided to do with it. She told me she wanted to do one too, so she did. It was SO good. I emailed it along with mine to Georgina and she asked if we could put it up with the rest of the DT as a guest layout. Don't you know that just made her day! Here is Nessa's layout but be sure to go see it over on Scrap Whispers too. And while you're at it, jump in there and do this challenge! There's a cool RAK up for grabs!

Lastly, I finished up my layout for Sketch #113 over on Scrapbook Challenges. Simple, yet it still took me three days to complete!
And now for some BIG news! If you have children that scrapbook, if you know children that like to scrapbook or just some crafty kids in general, Mark your calendars now for November 1st. This is the start of our (Me and DD) Challenge Blog for Kids! There are tons out there for us big scrappers, but not that many, if any at all for kids. So the idea for KidsCanScrap was born and the concept has been growing nicely. I have felt around to see if many would be interested and have gotten a good response. I have also gotten confirmation on some pretty awesome prize sponsors! Two of them are Scrapbook Circle Kits and American Crafts! Check out the new Teen Line from AC:Are you as excited as Nessa and I are?! I hope so! Come on over and visit KCS and be sure to bookmark it so you can come back on November 1st for our first challenge!!!

I love how you framed the journaling spot with the scalloped edges on your "8" layout. I hadn't noticed that before.
And YEA! Nessa!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! We do live close! I love you blog. Your LOs are wonderful. I wish I had time to catch up on my scraping. Cards seem to have me very busy these days. My 11-year-old loves to stamp and scrap with me, so we will be checking our your kids blog- wonderful idea, BTW! Just curious, where so you primarily shop for you "stash?" Just want to make sure I'm not missing out on a local shopping opportunity *wink*! If you are ever my way, let me know!
