Scrap it Forward needs Seeds.

This months challenge called Spring has Sprung at Scrap it Forward is to send packets of seeds for an organization called Boys Hope Girls Hope. This organization helps youth who are at risk and provides them with positive learning/growth opportunities who otherwise may not have the chance to do so.

The 2nd challenge is to make a spring themed layout using Cosmo Cricket paper. The Cosmo Cricket paper that I used is from the Storytime Collection. I love the rustic feel this paper gives.

Belli Challenge #62

I got this cute little purse idea from my friend Susan. I filled it with tea for my mother. I think that it came out cute. It was created for Belli's #62 challenge called Cello Bags. Our task was to create a project using a cello bag. The cute strawberry stamp is from a Stampin' Up!'s set called Tart and Tangy.

365 Cards Challenge #42

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to stamp your own background.The Stampin' Up! set that I used is an oldie but a goodie called Dance Sketches. I colored her hair and added some Stickle and ribbon to dress up this card. For my background, I stamped the image with SU's Pretty in Pink and then went back over it with a white gel pen and SU's Pretty in Pink marker. Remember to check out 365 blog for Scor-it challenges starting tomorrow. You don't need a Scor-it to participate in the challenges, but every challenge that you participate in will get you an entry in the drawing to win your very own Scor-it Mini!
Have a great day!

365 Cards Challenge #41

This is the card that I made this morning for #41 challenge at 365 Cards. The challenge was to make a get well card and use 5 flowers. I thought this Stampin' Up! flowering tree from the Season of Friendship set made a cute spring get well card for my son since his allergies are kicking his butt right now. Be sure to check out their blog next week for scor-it week. I can't wait to see what they have in store for all of us.

365 Cards Day 40 and Scrap It Forward Crop!

This is my card for the 365 Cards challenge. The challenge for today is to make a sunny summer card. I thought that this board short card would be perfect for this challenge.
The stamp is from a SU set called Wonderful Watercolors.

Here are two pages that I made at Christine's and Illyse's Autism Crop. It was such a fun day with lots of scrapping and gifts. Christine took a photo of me with all of my loot and boy, did I make out in the silent auction, I won just about everything. Be sure to check out their Scrap it Forward blog for this months challenge. They would like for all of us all to donate packets of seeds for a special cause.
