Cabbage Flower

Last weekend I got the chance to participate in two quick lil make n takes. One was this adorable lil flower. I can not find the business card for the vendor to tag her :( It was really simple though just involved 6 same size scalloped circles and a stapler. Its something similar to the one seen here.

Pictured here is my final result

Looking Over the City

I suceeded with an amazing accomplishment today. Well, amazing to me at least. I completed a 24hr challenge on Scrappin-n-Chattin. You choose 3 collections you'd like to use and get assigned a buddy. That bouddy chooses which collection you actually use as well which of 3 collections you use. With my schedule the idea of commiting to completing an entire layout the last Saturday of the month is overwhelming. I signed up once before but never made the deadline but this time I managed to do it. Of course its time probably better spent cleaning or ebaying or studying but its done!! Now just praying I win :)

So, this is yet another layout from San Francisco.

The sketch is from Scrappin-n-Chattin.

The paper, journaling box and embellishments are from Basic Grey Wander

The smaller letters are some very old Making Memories stickers

The word "CITY" is American Crafts Thickers Milkshake.

Sittin on the dock of the bay

I had hoped to enter the Lasting Memories animal challenge but missed the deadline so if you of anyone who has an animal challenge this week please let me know

This is a layout I've been mentally planning for months down to how I wanted that paper piecing on the bottom left to look. It'll be clearer when I have the chance to upload a daytime pic

On the Road Again

Made it to a crop this weekend and finally got some scrapping done for the first time in maybe 6 months at least. Got halfway through my 2009 SF pics so making progress.

My pics aren't the best right now so please excuse but wanted to get these up for the Scrap Fit and Paper Variety and Scrappin-n-Chattin challenges
