The picture is of my parents in about 1980. It's so funny seeing old pictures of your parents, it's just never quite what you expect. :)

I was picked to be "sister of the week" over at Sisterhood of Scrap! Thanks Sisterhood! Go check it out. And for the challenge this week, we were supposed to use a color that we rarely use and make it a main color. I choose yellow...don't know why, I have just never been a yellow person. But these papers are so gorgeous that it didn't make this challenge too hard. :) (Papers are Black Market Paper Society). Here's what I did:

So...since it is obvious that I am not going to win the first challenge of the Ultimate Scrapbook Challenge by Scrapbooks, etc...I went ahead and worked on the second challenge tonight. (Although it does look like I have locked in 3rd place on the first challenge). The second challenge was to do cool journaling or doodling. Here is what I did:
I made the journaling part of the design...the roof to a house, the top of a tree. I also made some words bolder than others. Here's to hoping that I have to again ask you to vote. :) They announce the ten finalists for this challenge on Wednesday the 25th.
Paper from Scrapworks and Cosmo Cricket. Cardstock from Coredinations. Paint from Making Memories and Scribbles. Chipboard from Maya Road. Other: Hambly overlay (clouds), lace from Prima and embroidery floss from DMC.

Here's one of my favorite layouts...I don't think I ever posted it on here...it is one I did last summer. I was looking through my Cosmo Cricket stash, and saw all those fun papers with the painted look. I used those a lot...little pieces here and there. Anyways, it made me think of this layout and smile...so I thought I would post it here. :)

So, as you can probably tell from my posts lately, but I have been surfing the scrapbooking online community lately...just for fun...seeing what's out there. I came across a site called AMM (A Million Memories)...they are having a very cool Creative Imaginations contest right now. I was also inspired by a challenge that was issued on there. The challenge was to be inspired by a piece of patterned paper (not to use the paper but to make you LO based on the design of the pp). You can check it out here to see what others did. Anyways, here is what I did.
This was the paper I was inspired by [Dream Street Papers]:

Here they are...the projects I did with the June kit from the Coconut ScrapShop.
And I used the little mini book thing and made something for my sister.
