Well it's June and we have a really fun challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous this month. As always we try to make you dig into some neglected corner of your stash and this time it's mini decks! Oh, aren't they cute, I just have to buy them when I see them on sale, telling myself they're just perfect for cards and then they sit and sit and don't get used but they're just so stinkin' cute! Well this months challenge is to use at least 3 sheets from one of you much neglected mini decks. You can do whatever you want with these sheets, personally I shredded mine and weaved it. the vertical sheet in the background is from one sheet but the seam is hidden behind the picture.
This layout took me a long time! Not just the weaving but all the sea creatures are made from Lawn Fawns Critters in the sea stamp set! Oh, and I went kind of crazy with the twine again!!! Head on over to Scrapbookers Anonymous to check out what our amazing DT did and come play along this month!!!
I don't typically post a second layout when it's time for a new SA challenge but as I don't want to have two posts in one day so it has to be done. I was able to play along with Sketchy Thursdays this week (woohoo) and here is what I created.
The picture is of Marin watching cartoons and on a Saturday morning. I didn't grow up with cable so I remember when Saturday morning was the only time to be able to watch cartoons... hard to imagine that now. Anyway, the base paper is by the Girl's Paperie, and the rest of the pp is Reminsce, Imaginisce, Bo Bunny and some bits of Craft. The flowers made from the dictionary paper are from Diana's Etsy Shop. I was a winner at Fave Things a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to be able pick out some goodies from Diana's shop. How cool is that!
One last thing to mention, last week my scrap room was actually clean (somewhat) so I took a couple of pictures to post. I'm always trying to figure out different ways to reorganize it (maybe I should just stop buying but I don't think that is going to happen.) But anyway here are two pics of my scrappy haven. This room was supposed to be a formal dining room but I felt the space could be better utilized :)
