Round 11

I made it to Challenge 11 in the So You Think You Can Scrap Challenge over at Colorful Creations!  WOOT!  Go me! lol   This time we had to use a double layout sketch, Distressing, recycled embellie packaging, fussy cutting and only 3 patterned papers.  We are down to only 19 people left in the challenge and one bowed out today because part of Challenge 11 is to quill and she didn't want to quill.  I've never actually done quilling but I do have the stuff to try it.  I just have to find it!! EEK! ha

Here is this week's challenge:

4 Photos (can be colored or b&w)
Black & White ONLY
6 Brads
Handwritten Journaling
Make your own layered 3d embellie

The funny thing is that someone has already entered their project and the challenge was only posted a couple of hours ago!!!  GOOD GRIEF they are fast and unintimidated!! LOL 

The hardest part for me is finding 4 photos that are good that go together.  That is probably a testiment to my poor photography skills.  I can ususally get 1-2 good photos that work together but more that 2 is a stretch.  And these have to be in black and white. 


I finished up my layout from last week (the one above) last night with 30 minutes to spare! LOL  No stress or anything.  I'm not sure if I think it is finished yet worked for the challenge but I might add a couple of things to it...what do you think?

My daughter is 2nd from the right.

Totally different daughter has been practicing for months on the musical - 101 Dalmations.  Opening night was last night and she did a fantastic job!!  I'm so happy for her.  She has a performance today at school for classmates and another one tonight and tomorrow night.  We are taking our whole family tonight.  Last night it was only me that was able to go because of the other kids being in other things. 

A cute thing was that my hubby and I left to run errands yesterday and while we were out we both bought her flowers.  So she had two bouquets.  Great minds and all of

We have guests coming this weekend and also lacrosse games in addition to the musical so it will be busy around here.  What are you weekend plans??  Planning to get scrappy??  Share...

Until next time...happy scrapping!
