Scrapbook Process: Three in One - In the Sun

This is a first -- I completed the "trifecta" at Design Dollies today!  The trifecta is one entry combining all three of this week's challenges:  color, element and sketch.  

The colors were royal blue, aqua and orange.  I was to incorporate watery waves and then follow the sketch on yesterday's post.  WOW.

So here is the final product --
Once again, I dove in my paper stash to use something that was sitting there for awhile (blue dotted paper).  The orange polka dot paper is from a Chloe's Closet paper stack.  And of course, Thickers!

Scrapbook Process: Van-tastic Layout

We are having our monthly crop in our CafeMom group this week, ending Friday.

For one challenge, I was to complete a 12x12 layout to represent my time in the car.  LOL!  So this morning on the way to the mailbox, I grabbed my camera and took some "representing" photos!

I liked how it turned out . . . especially since I used very old paper that I'm too stingy to get rid of!  The flower is made out of a small strip of crepe paper, and I was thrilled that I had matching Thickers! (LOVE Thickers!)  Feeling quite proud of myself, I went to post this photo, only to discover that I didn't quite exactly follow all the rules!  Yellow was to be the main color, with a choice of adding just two colors (purple, green or blue).  I added all three colors, and I don't think my yellow is quite predominant.  However, I keep trying to get our CafeMom group moms to think more outside the box with what they scrap, so I need to do that too.

Card Making Process: Where Flowers Bloom

This card looks like Fall, doesn't it?  It wasn't originally my intention, but it is what came together with this sweet flower digi stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, (only 99 cents!) and this quote I created it in Microsoft Word.

Today's Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge, was to "create a card of apology or one reaching out to someone and encouraging them to put the past behind them and move forward."   I thought this card would be a very nice encouragement for a friend.  What do you think?

Card Making Process: Friendship Card

I'm still in a card frenzy lately -- besides the class projects I do for Scrapology -- I have been digging out some old stamps and papers and making new and different cards to replenish my supply.

For this card, I found a "Honey Pie" paper pad from Cosmo Cricket in my stash, added a Prima and chipboard embellies.  This will be submitted for a challenge for Design Dollies -- my first submission (although I've been a fan since their inception) !!

It's a beautiful day outside, hence the idea to take photos of my cards out on the patio . . . . but since it's 100 degrees, I made it quick and came back inside.  :)
