I was so excited to just sit down and scrap with whatever I wanted to scrap with!! I love the challenges over at The Lily Pad, because they really stretch me with kits and designers that are more artsy than my normal style. Here are 6 pages that I have done and there are 3 more challenges to do. Then it’s finishing my Gingerscraps ones! EEK!
First up, a cute little page of my daughter and her friend Riley playing at the Science group at the library. This is for the BYOC Challenge. I used Dawn Inskip Deep Blue Sea Papers and Elements, ETC by Danyale Jars and Blook Paint, Lynn Grieveson Blue Skies Ahead Transfers, and Pink Reptile Designs Today Elements.
Next up – the Random Challenge – I had to use colors from the opposite side of the color wheel!
Most pieces are ETC by Danyale. I have to go back and look for the credits.
This is a scraplift using LBW/Studio Basic “Laugh Often” and ETC by Danyale “Chapter 1 Chalk”, and a scraplift of mrs2a50’s “A Great Day”
And here’s mine!
This is a photo of my husband’s grandfather and Cesar Brion. He was really big into boxing and was a benefactor and friend to Cesar Brion. I used a bunch of TLP products for the Template Challenge:
Dawn Inskip Deep Blue Sea Elements, background paper, ETC by Danyale Jars and Bloom Paint and papers from Peace Love, Pink Reptile Designs “The Story”, Ilonka Designs Sandy Toes wood background.
I have been wanting to scrap these fun pictures of my daughter and her friend for a long time – then I remembered I had this wonderful kit, “Laugh Often”, by Little Butterfly Wings and Studio Basic! I used Fiddle Dee Dee’s “Gotta Lotta 2” template.
This is for the inspiration challenge. On the mood board, there was a picture of a woman smiling big and obviously having fun. That’s what inspired me to use this kit and scrap these pictures!
This is a photo I’ve waited a long time to scrap, and it just felt right today because I got the journaling down.
This is for the Style Challenge – to make a cluster with 12 or more elements. I used Pink Reptile Designs “Today” elements. Background is from the free Life is an Adventure Kit.
This picture brings a smile to my face every time I see it. There is a back story to why I smile – and it’s not in the pose or the place, or even the people, but an experience that happened that night. My husband has a model train weathering group, and every year they get together and just have an entire weekend of weathering and fun. This time they came to our house. As the day wound down, Michael asked us if we would take him and Elza down to the strip because she had never been there, and it had been 20 years since he had. As we walked through the casinos and down the street, people kept stopping us and asking for pictures and Michael’s autograph. Finally, we got to Ceasar’s Palace and Melissa seemed really confused. She came up to me and said quietly, “Mom, why is everyone wanting to take pictures of Michael? This is WEIRD!!!!!” It was then that it hit me: She had no idea he was famous! So, I said, “Honey, I’m sorry. I thought we told you that MIchael is an actor”. She was all “NO!!!!! He’s a STAR and you didn’t TELL ME????” She was quite indignant. She looked at Michael and he said to her, “I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, but I’m still the same ole Michael. ”
Hope you enjoy them!
