Layout 112-116 2010 Layout Challenge








Hi again folks. So, most of you know that in January of this year I began a challenge with some CTMH sisters to produce 120 layouts this year. Some consultants challenged themselves to more or less, depending on the time they had to devote to this challenge. As the year end approaches, I am feelin' the crunch a little, but have quite a few layouts ready to post....so here we go with another batch! More cruise layouts......only a few more left to post!

Layout 111 - 2010 Layout Challenge


I whipped this up last night as my entry on Design Dollies (http://www.designdollies.blogspot.com/) for their sketch challenge and their colour challenge (black, yellow, & silver)! These colours were perfect for pictures of my DS about to enjoy some "refreshments" on his birthday! The colours are a little washed out in this picture, much more vibrant in real life.


Materials used: Paper from Basic Gray "Origins" collection - Authentic & Aromatherapy, 8x8 paper from Cosmo Cricket "Hello Sunshine" collection, "Tinsel" Thickers, black mirror cardstock, Cor'dinations cardstock, CTMH black cardstock, button "softie" from K I Memories, skull rub-on from Making Memories, chipboard embellishment, silver star brad, silver spiral clip, silver journalling pen.

Layout 106 & 107 2010 Layout Challenge




Do you use an ATG tape gun? Then I have something to tell you before I talk about the layouts. I received a gift subscription to Canadian Scrapbooker from my FANTASTIC friend Kim (lol....do you think she'll know how I feel??) and in the current issue, there is an ad for http://www.stix2kooltak.com/ . They just happen to sell the refill tape for the ATG along with other things, and they just happen to have a 40% off sale happening right now! I placed my order and wasn't charged shipping either!!! Just had to share!

More cruise layouts.....they all bring back such great memories for me. The first one is pretty basic, the photo was from the ship's photographers and although it's the "touristy" type shot, I love this picture of my Mom and I. I have so few of the two of us together. The second layout is from our adventure in Hell! When I came home from our trip, the newspaper that Saturday had this big travel article about Hell in the Cayman Islands. Photocopied, reduced, and reprinted it on cardstock so that I could include it in this layout. Then, a couple of weeks later, my letter to myself postmarked from Hell arrived! Had to include that too! I used more of the MM Passport collection for this one, I think the felt flower strip was from Queen & Co. That's it for now.....gotta go get some gifts wrapped for the mail!

Layout 104 & 105 2010 Layout Challenge




In between decorating the house for Christmas, making gifts, cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry, my hubby and I took some time on Saturday to visit our local scrapbook store - Scrapbookers Anonymous on Portage Ave. We walked in around 3:30 p.m. and the place was packed! They were having a birthday party for one of the ladies who "works" there (and she is obviously well loved!), but there were others like me, just there to shop. It was such a festive, joyous atmosphere and the store was celebrating by having a sale! My lucky day!!! Anyway, they had all the newest paper collections and embellishments in addition to well-stocked shelves with everything needed to create gorgeous layouts and cards. I was in my "happy place" if you know what I mean! lol! If you live in the city and haven't been in to the new location, go check it out!
OK, here we go with some more layouts - I need to get posting if I am going to make it to my goal of 120 for the year! These are both from my cruise album and were duplicated for my Mom's album as well.
Materials - "Paradise" - patterned paper was from Creative Imaginations, bazzill cardstock for matting photos, journalling card from Fancy Pants, laser cut title, sticker from Jolee's, stamped image from Scrappy Cat. "Dunn's River Falls" - MM "Passport" patterned paper, CTMH "Moon Doggie" paper, flowers cut from unknown brand paper, vellum quote from Deja Views, Cricut "Calligraphy" cartridge for title, phrase stickers from Reminisce, border sticker from Creative Memories.
