Fun journaling! :)

Today is the last day from the most recent Letters and Words challenge.  The challenge was to create shaped text.  Check out the details here.   Your link needs to be posted tonight at midnight EST so if you have time along!

Here's a layout that I made (it's hybrid):

What I did was make a page in photoshop of patterned paper and butterflies.  I then printed it and too my exacto knife and cut out the butterflies (leaving a border).  I layered a piece of cardstock behind it and added my journaling to those butterfly spots!  :)  Here are some close up's of the journaling.  

The digital papers and elements are from Audacious Designs.  I used the Butterfly Fancy kit for this layout.

So Kelby and I have a date tonight.  :)  We are going to see the new Harry Potter movie.  Anybody seen it yet?  

Supplies for "the Clan":
Cardstock--American Crafts, Papers (digital)--Audacious Designs, Chipboard Letters--Basic Grey, Buttons--Rusty Pickle, Pearls--Kaisercraft, Thread--DMC.

Amazing Race *7th Assignment*

My last project is done and posted!!! Now all I can do is wait. So the last clue took us to the Scrapping Outback site, where we found that our assignment was to create a party!!! Among it all, we need to make sure we had a sign, a centerpiece, a party favor, an invitation and a thank you card. Here's what I created, using the Candy Land line. :)

Amazing Race *6th Assignment*

So the lack of sleep is getting to me. I pulled an all-nighter!!! Ugghh...and now you can tell that I haven't slept! LOL...I looked at the other gals work and almost started crying because they were so fabulous. Certainly made me feel like I didn't do a good enough job. Seriously, it's kinda funny how emotional I get on no sleep. Trying to regroup and hope to impress with the next challenge, which by the way, will be the last.

So this time the clue took us to Scrapbook Doodle. The assignment was to use the tab sheets and make a mini album that is fabric bound, and use the French Market line. Essentially I made an album from scratch. It was kind of fun! I am very proud of the binding I did. :)

Here's my album...there are A LOT of pictures.

The recipe cards are continued on the backs. As you can see I combined real recipes (food) with life recipes. :) Well, thanks for looking! The next clue is posted in an hour....we are approaching the final leg!

Have an awesome Tuesday!
