Scrapbook Throwdown at Memorable Seasons

Get ready scrapbook chefs of America! It is time for the first ever Scrapbook Throwdown at Memorable Seasons! We will issue you a weekly "recipe" challenge, and your "dishes" will be taste tested. Get ready to cook up your best work yet. A great prize awaits the Top Chef!! (we will also have weekly random drawings for ALL the chefs participating too!) Now grab your apron and get ready!!

The Contest begins TODAY and will last 4 weeks. Unlike past contests, the grand prize will be awarded by random drawing and not by votes. However, in order to be eligible for the grand prize, you must complete at least 3 of the challenges by their respective deadlines.

I had the honor of preparing the challenge for the first dish. Today, we are serving up Wedding Cake!
Your "Wedding Cake" layouts must include pictures about a wedding event of any sort. If you are lacking this main ingredient in your cupboards, then you may substitute any photos of close relationships instead. Your recipes must also include the following ingredients:
Something old-this can be old photos, old products or you may use distressing/inking for an older look
Something new-this can be new products or new techniques
Something Borrowed-this can mean that you borrowed tools to complete your layout or that you used a sketch/scraplifted someone else
Something Blue-Exactly that....your layout must have blue in it somewhere!

Here is my layout made with the above recipe.
My pictures are the something old (14+ years old). My papers and the bling swirls are my something new. I borrowed (scraplifted) my layout from Q-diggity. Obviously, my papers are also my something blue.

I hope you will all join in on our throwdown at Memorable Seasons! We'd love to see what you can cook up!

Scrap-Friendzy February Kit Reveal

This kit is my first one to work with as a Design Team member at Scrap-Friendzy! I knew before getting it that I'd like it since it has Pink Paislee's Cupid Collection as a big part of it. But when I got it and started working with it, I not only liked it, but I LOVED it! It was so much fun. I love each and every project that I got done using it.So much so, that all I have left are these scraps!
Here are my layouts that I did:

I also did this picture frame.
And this mini album about my girls!
And a few cards. Simple cards, 'cause that's how I do them. ;)
Now, if you want this kit, you better act fast because they are selling quickly! Head over the Scrap-Friendzy Store to order yours now! Hurry...go NOW!!
