On the road again

I have the car rented...the pictures are almost is that time of year again...Maranatha!!!! It is my bi-yearly vacation to Nebraska for a scrap weekend with the gals! I am leaving early Friday morning and won't be back 'till Sunday night! Woohooo!!!

I am hoping for nice weather, although the forecast is calling for snow today and tomorrow. So far, nothing, but it is Colorado and the mountains makes it difficult to gage. But the fingers are crossed!! I will have lots of goodies to show next Monday!!

And Mary, if you are reading me a seat!!! I'm on my way!!!

See you then!

Inspiration is in the challenge

Here are a few of my favorite pages from the online crop this last weekend over at Scrap my Memories!!

We had to do an all white layout with a black and white photo! I love the look that came out of it! This is one that I will do over and over again!

Challenge: Scrap someone hard at work or hard at play. These photos worked for both. They were taken last fall during one of her first games.

Challenge: Use Arrows. And it's funny...Bayle asked me the day before to make him something, and I took out an arrow and chalked it gold and then used UTEE to harden the arrow...and then this challenge came along. Worked perfect!!
Challenge: Make a ring or circle of something on your LO. This picture does not show it very well...but there are 'bling' placed all over the paper and on the butterflies. The picture of Taylor was taken almost two years ago the July 4th.

The Hulk

Sisterhood of Scrap posted their Monday challenge...and it's all about GREEN!! They want you to use mostly green in your card or LO. This is my go at it...I've had this picture printed for almost 6 months now, and saw this as a perfect opportunity to use it!

Remember to submit your entry through comments or email to be eligible for the monthly drawing!!!

Okay...I am going to go grocery shopping now and wait for the sun to come up a bit more. I did a ton of pages this weekend and still have to take photos! Did anyone else make it to the online crop at Scrap My Ideas?!?!?!

I posted over at Sisterhood of Scrap for their Teaching Tuesday. Hop on over to take a look!!

The book shown at the end is one that I made a few weeks ago while my computer was down. It is an idea book to put different techniques and sketches in that I find on the web. So that when I am on my weekend crops or just scrappen away from the computer, I can pull out the book and get inspiration that way!!! If you want to know how I made it..just ask!

Oooo...and I almost forgot to post my Monday Challenge from Sisterhood of Scrap...They are wanting you to scrap two pictures of different sizes. These pictures were taken last summer in Oklahoma. And no matter how hot or humid it was...he was out there catching those bugs and frogs and even brought in a spider. Ewww...

I will post challenges and sketches tomorrow...I completely forgot and it is Wednesday tomorrow... :(

Happy Scrapping!!
