Scraptivations - Challenge 1

Ladies are you ready to join us in our first challenge over at Scraptivations? It is a sketch challenge and I hope you can participate!  Lisa does great sketches and this one will not disappoint.

Here is the sketch :
Here is what I came up with - I have been trying to decide what to do with these photo's for a while of Maizie at Christmas. She got a little upset when all the gifts were gone as she had just gotten into a routine.

The paper is from a past kit over at Personal Scrapper. The line is Happy Fall by We r Memory Keepers I believe. I had been using it mainly for school pages so it was nice to use a fall line for something so different like Christmas.

Close up of some of the details

And of the title. I added some brads on the sides as well as at the top.

More close ups

Here you can see some of the layers. I popped up some of the extras

I hope you have time to head over to the Scraptivations blog so that you can see what everyone else has been up to and when show us what you came up with you will have the chance to win a prize!

In CASE you were wondering...

where I went off to. Here I am. I have been looking for my crafty mojo and I am not sure I have found it yet but my room is all clean. I moved it again, those that know me in real life are very surprised I know. ;)

I do have some scrappy goodness to share. This is a total CASE of my friend Lisa's page that she did a few weeks ago during a Personal Scrapper crop. I had really been struggling with an earlier assignment regarding my one word that I want to focus on this year.

Some SUPER EXCITING Scrappy good news and a card share

Here is a quick card based off of one of the new MFT Wednesdays sketches. You can see the sketch here
The card came together really quick and off it went into the mail to a friend who is always doing the sweetest things for me. I really don't send her enough cards. Heck I don't send anyone enough cards. I am working on it though it is one of my goals this year.

Speaking of goals this year another one was to be a on a Design Team - well guess what? I applied to Scraptivations who make a DT call last month and I was selected! Yippeee!!! I am super super excited to be a part of this team. Carly has been working hard getting this new challenge blog up and running. Our first challenge is going to be up and running on March 20th and I would love it if all of you come on over and check it out and join in on the fun. 

Now to get busy on those other goals on that list. ;)

Doing the Dora Dance

Well my little one turned 3 in December I was super happy to learn that my mom got her a Dora cookie bouquet as Maizie is all about Dora. I love me some cookies and Maizie was not to interested int he big one so I decided to eat that one. Well they are on a stick and so naturally it was off with her head. The funniest thing happened though as we were sitting around the table I looked at Savannah, who is just as silly as I am, and looked at my mom who was in some deep important conversation and I took the headless Dora and put her in position so it looked like my mom was her head. Savannah and I were laughing so hard and so we started trying to take photo's it was forever before my mom even knew what we were doing. Ha! Anyway after we composed ourselves a little we had to make everyone "Dora" and thus we were all doing the Dora dance. I found this sketch over at Got Sketch it is an older one #76 but I love it. Since I needed a two pager I just turned the photo's for the second page. I am really enjoying how this turned out.  So now that you know how we all ended up doing the Dora dance here is the layout I created. These papers are again using the fabulous February Kit from Personal Scrapper.

I love making these rosette flowers. I also trimmed out a conversation heart and added them to the middles.

Some sparkle brads and my favorite new Fiskars punch.

These letters are foam and have the perfect playful feel to them.

Close up of the journaling.

and the two pages together

More to share soon!
