Week 3 at Paper Secrets SYAO Challenges + 2 other challenges

Wow, it is already week 3 of the Scrap You A** Off event going on over at Paper Secrets.  The idea is to keep completing challenges until only one scrapper is left standing.  The event started on May 13th and is still running strong.  Each week we are given a sketch to follow along with a list of items/supplies that we are required to use.  I have thoroughly enjoyed each week and was a bit overwhelmed this week with Life in general.  I was down to the wire but I managed to accomplish the task.  My LO is completed.

At the beginning of the event there were 58 individuals signed up to participate.  By the deadline for Week 1, only 30 of those individuals had completed the challenge.  For week 2, the number dropped down to 23.  As it stands right now, with only 11 1/2 hours left to meet the deadline, only 13 LO's have been submitted.  I am a bit sad :( that it is going that quickly, but with the prize up for grabs ($75.00 worth of scrapping goodies), I am sure the last few will remain strong and hang in there until it is neck to neck.

The sketch we were given for this week (as well as last week) were both unique sketches by Rochelle Spears.  Her sketches are great and you should seriously consider joining the fun at Paper Secrets.  They have awesome monthly challenges, online crop events, tips, chit-chat, and so much more. 

So here is the sketch we were asked to follow for week 3:
And here is my completed LO.  There were no personal pictures added to this one, because I plan to give it to a friend who is getting married next week.  I know she is interested in getting an album made, and I just wanted to show her some of the possibilities she could work with.  I also know it will be greatly appreciated, and to me, that's what creating is all about---making others smile!  :O)  To learn how to make the paper flowers, please visit this awesome tutorial by Dr. Sonia S V at Cards, Crafts, and Kids Projects.
