Time for another ScrapFit challenge!!

"Fans, Fans, Everywhere Fans"
For this challenge I want to see your fans/peeps/friends—I need a LO/altered art with 5-10 pictures in it. Could be friends, family, animals---whatever you like.

I created a little Maya Road Purse album using the newest line from My Mind’s Eye.

I completely forgot about posting my Make N' Take challenge!! I found instructions for these fun Star boxes at Splitcoast Stampers! They were so fun to make! Using floral wire, Star diecuts, and some stickles I created a little flair for the large box. Doesn't it add a little fun pizzazz?!

Have an awesome day!!
What a wonderful crop!! As usual, I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I had hoped, but I did get something done this time!!

Several to share today, so let's get started!

An old time favorite, a lift challenge to get the mojo going! I combined two lovely layout's I found in the Life Preservers gallery to create this one , one by Laura Lee and the other by Wanita! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!!

Back by popular demand! :) I hosted another one hour sketch challenge. As you know, I love to make my own embellishments but since I am a super slow scrapper I had to set that aside if I was going to pull this off in 1 hour! Sketch courtesy of Sassy 'Lil Sketches.

I started Friday evening off with working on the earlybird sketch challenge.

I also completed a couple of the Make 'n Takes as well play along in some awesome games!

I did finish up another layout, but you will have to wait to peek at that one! :)

My DT buddies has so many wonderful challenges. I hope to work on more of them this week! Awesome inspiration!! You can find them here!

One more day to get your ScrapFit challenge posted!! New challenge coming tomorrow!

June already?!

Today I have an All-in-one for you. I used a previous kit from Life Preservers to create my example for Scrapfit, using the new sketch from Sketch Inspirations…whew!

ScrapFit challenge #21 - Use a machine….cuttlebug, cricut, slice, punches, etc…

I used a couple different border punches, a sizzix die, and did lots of stitching!

Non kit items: fabric; distress ink; border punches; pin; letter stickers; pearls

I love this photo of my grandmother with one of her quilts across her lap. She has 7 children, and 21 children. Each of us has at least one quilt made by her. She has many more that she created....amazing! Wish I had her talent, and patience!!

Life Preservers is sponsoring Sketch Inspirations this week. LP DT members were asked to create a layout using this fabulous sketch.
Our work is featured on Sketch Inspiration this week. Head on over and see the gorgeous work of my teammates.
Thanks for stopping by!!
