Did you know that Nov. 3rd was Sandwich day? One of the Nov. challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap was to create a layout with a "slice" of kraft & one of your favorite toppings. I used kraft & yellow for mustard. Thanks for stopping by!

Goodbye AZ

I made this page for the current Shabby Princess Template Challenge. Be sure you check it out so you can join in! If you haven't tried digital scrapping it really is as easy as dropping your papers & clipping them to the shapes. Shabby Princess has done all the amazing work for you! I also entered this in Sisterhood of Scrap's Nov. challenges. This was for "Banana Pudding Month" so our LO had to be mainly yellow. If you are lacking in inspiration this month, SOS would be a wonderful place to find it! We currently have 10 challenges going as well as loads of wonderful LO's to look through. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby bath time

I did this layout for a couple of different challenges. Crop Suey's monthly challenge was to scrap about yourself. I used a couple of my baby pictures I found. The other challenge was at Sisterhood of Scrap from Lois & it was to use chipboard on your page. I used chipboard frames and a tag at the bottom. The tags were originally white glitter & I colored them with my colorbox queue. I used the lavender-ish color. Thanks for looking!

Crayon Art

I found this on Pinterest from Meg Duerksen's blog. Pretty cool idea! You just hot glue the crayons down & then use a hair dryer to melt them. They start to melt pretty quickly. I actually used my heat gun because it felt like the hair dryer was blowing the wax too much. Thanks for looking!
