More layouts...

Here are 2 more layouts I made for the March green challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap. The challenges are over now but I did win a small prize for scraplifting the Bath Time layout. The first page was to do a monochromatic layout using the shades of green.
The second page was to use the word or color green in your title.

I made another digital page for a challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap. This was for a challenge to do a layout with no pictures. I haven't done a layout without pictures so I tried another digital page for this one. I used another Shabby Princess kit. This time I used the Spontaneous Delight Aug 2008 kit. Enjoy and thanks for looking!

24 weeks

I was 24 weeks on Sunday. Today we had another ultrasound today because my nurse practioner ordered it. She said they didn't get a good picture of the face and the heart so we went to a specialist today. No worries though, everything is just great. Little "Ralphie" as Andrew has named him, or "Michael Scott" (inside joke) smiled at us and even stuck his tongue out at us. The technician said everything looked great. The picture from 18 weeks is here if you want to look at it.

St. Patrick's Day box

This box was the latest sample from UHU glue. I decorated it with the things they sent me and also some beads I had in my stash on the top of the box. I used the UHU glue stick to put the paper on the side and my UHU twist & glue for the shamrocks and beads. I also used this for the March green challenge #6 at Sisterhood of Scrap. You had to use a shamrock in your project. Thanks for looking!

I fnished my first digital page today. It started out very confusing and then I watched a video tutorial on Shabby Princess and it really helped. The kit I used is the March 2008 Promise kit from the same website. I actually liked digital scrapping although I know my paper page would've been done way before the digital page was. I want to continue making digital pages mainly because I wouldn't have to print pictures. So on to the page...I made this page for the March green challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap. This challenge was to show your green thumb. Since my mom didn't give me one (I kill pretty much any plant I get), I did the page of her green thumb and her sunflowers. Enjoy!

One-hour Challenge

Tonight there was a one-hour sketch challenge on the Sisterhood of Scrap forum. Tonight's challenge was a scraplift and you had to use something recycled on your page. I love these one-hour challenges because they go so quick and it's a little bit of a rush to get things done. All I knew beforehand was that we needed one picture and at least one recycled item. I found some bread tags last night in the kitchen and decided that would be recycled item. As for the picture and the paper, that was a last minute decision. Here is my LO. Thanks for looking!
