# Photo Bomb (A Scraproom Challenge)

I recently joined yet another Facebook Scrapbooking Group.  This one is for fans and subscribers to The ScrapRoom kits.  Last Friday was the first time I heard of a challenge they do called Freaky Fast Formula Challenge.  So this month they gave 6 dimensions to cut paper to and then you just layer them all together and add your own embellishments. 
I had a really great time putting this whole layout together.  The hardest part was finding some scraps that I liked the look of when combined and that worked with my photo.  I am already looking forward to the next challenge!

My Darling Little MD (Scrap Our Stash)

It is time for a new book inspired challenge over at Scrap Our Stash.  It is another Dr. Seuss book this month.  I haven’t read this book before, at least that I remember, so I wasn’t too sure what I was going to use as inspiration.  I hope you will swing over to the blog and see what the design team has created so far, and make sure to play along for your chance to win this month’s prize! 
When I went through my printed photos, I found two pictures of my daughter when she was giving me care instructions for her stuffed frog with a “broken” leg.  Perfect!  These photos showed her caring nature and I was off and running.  I also loved the striped look of the background and decided to use this fun arrow cut file and filled each row of arrows with various stripped pattern papers.  Of course, I had to add at least two hearts, and I ended up with 3 of them.

Remember Pretty Moments

Welcome to February!  Today there is a new sketch challenge up on Stuck?! Sketches.  Laura did a fabulous job with this one.  Of course there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs, so make sure you play along for your chance to win!
Stuck 2-1
I really stuck close to the sketch on this page.  I had these three pictures of my daughter from a family photo shoot last summer and I really wanted to scrap them, plus I love playing with brighter colors in the cold, grey winter months here. 
I usually avoid patterned paper like the background page, because I find them hard to use with other papers and with my photos.  This one is an exception though.  I covered up some of the circles, but it still works.  I love the variety of colors and sizes of those fun circles!

The Game is On!

I was so excited to hear that one of my friends was joining the design team at The ScrapRoom.  The fabulous Rochelle has taken over the site and I know her from my Scrap Our Stash design team.  I am so excited to see where she takes this new adventure.

I had some free time and decided to take on the new sketch challenge for January (I know, I just barely got it done in time).  I love these pictures because of the everyday moments they capture of my daughter and I this past summer.  I added an extra piece of background paper and some various layers and strips of paper to really work with the fun theme of my pictures. 

The Game is On

Supplies – Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee.  Cardstock: Bazzill.  Letters: Making Memories, Basic Grey.  Embellishments: Chic Tags, Amy Tangerine, Simple Stories, My Mind’s Eye, Heidi Swapp, Teresa Collins.

Summer Lovin (SOS)

It is now time for the sketch challenge over at Scrap Our Stash.  They have also changed up the sketch challenge.  Now there is a sketch and three columns of other items and we need to include one item from each of the column.  Each column has a company, item and color to choose from.  This really got me thinking and it came together really well!
This sketch was such fun to work with!  I also like the stash item part of the challenge.  For this page I used American Crafts and Arrow from the first column, Butterflies from the second column and Carta Bella from the third column.  Otherwise I stuck pretty close to the sketch and even created my own messy circle cut file for behind my photos.  It was so easy and I love how it turned out!

Happy Happy 8 Layout

Wow!!  How is January almost half over already?!?  I have finally started scrapping again after taking a break for a while when life got pretty busy over the holidays.  I am still trying to get back to a normal schedule in life.

I got the inspiration for this layout from the cut file.  I wanted a big number "8" on my layout to represent my daughter's birthday in the photo, so when I saw this cut file, I knew it would be perfect especially with a fun circle cut file around the "8".  After I got the cuts made, I wanted to keep the rest of the layout a little more simple in regards to the embellishments, since the cut file takes up so much visual space on my page.

Supplies - Digital Cutter and Software: Silhouette Cameo with Designer Edition Software.  Patterned Paper: Dear Lizzy from American Crafts.  Cardstock: American Crafts. Embellishments: Recollections, Doodlebug.

Thanks for joining me!

I was a little unsure of this sketch at first and then I grabbed this photos and some paper scraps and it just fell together.  This is one of my favorite pages that I recently created.  It is just such a fun page and this sketch ended up being quite the winner!
