In my defense, the kids have had horrible colds and have needed my undivided attention. I have been washing outrageous amounts of laundry and spraying the house for several days now, but Lance finally got home from work early today and I completed some of the challenges. I am having so much fun and really feel like being creative allows me to enhance my inner peace.
I absolutely love connecting with other talented people and learning new techniques.
I just wanted to share some of the creations I have completed thus far....
P - Potted Plant
A - Altered tags
R - Rhinestones
T - Twins (me and my sissy)
Y - Yin-Yang
There is one blank rectangle awaiting the picture still. I have to hunt for the very one I want to place in that spot....
This challenge was a BINGO challenge. Vickie gave us a bingo card full of scrappy supplies and techniques that had to be used. I chose the O column and had to use..... Bling, Chipboard, 3 or more papers, Tearing, and Blue.
Thank goodness McKenzie enjoys taking pics of herself (on a regular basis and always snaps about 50 at a time - - - -must be a teenager thing) LOL :O)! I was able to pic my favorites for this LO.
This challenge was a Shabby Chic challenge.
I saw this term many times throughout the time that I have been blogging, but never knew exactly what it was. Guess I can't say that now. I think this is definitely one of my favorite techniques, thus far.
The picture is circa 1940s and is my maternal grandmother and step-grandfather. My maternal gf passed when my mom was very young and grandpa Danny is the gf I grew up knowing as a child. My gm and gp were the nicest people on earth....really!! So, I thoroughly enjoyed honoring them and preserving this memory.
The terms of this challenge were to use the following elements:
- A vintage photo pre 50's must be used.
- Pastel Tones
The next challenge that I finished was my friend Luisa's Wonderful Birthday challenge. After all, it was a Birthday Bash. I had the opportunity to highlight Haylee's first BD.
2 different alpha stickers, hand cut something from
patterned paper, raise the fussy-cut item on pop dots, and add stickles or glitter
I had found some paper that matched the banner I made for her Birthday, so the pics and paper coordinate quite well.
I had a lot of fun with this challenge. We were given a picture of cupcakes and candy that we could use for inspiration.
The paper in the photo at left, matched the cupcakes and candy colors PERFECTLY!
I am so glad I was able to get a picture of Pablo and make a page.
The last challenge I completed was an altered tissue box. We have plenty of those laying around this week. I chose to make it into a Reward Box for the kids. I still need to make some reward slips so that when they are being well behaved, they can reach in, and pull out a special surprise. Who doesn't love surprises?
Well, what a long weekend. I had fun. I am so looking forward to the next event in the upcoming weeks.
Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by today!!!!! :O)
