Another Challenge

I did this lo for challenge #19 on 52sketches based off of another fabulous sketch by Julie!

My Buds page!

This is a lo I did the first time Julie from 52sketches had a design team call. I didn't end up entering an app for that call, but today as I was putting up my challenge for Scrap whispers I realized I had never taken a pic of it and put it up so here it is! It's based on a 2008 sketch of Julies!

Challenge # 28 from Scrap whisperers!

This is my entry for a challenge on Scrap Whispers. Challenge # 28. The challenge was: "Challenge 28 is slightly unusual. We want you to split your page in two and create one layout but with 2 different sides to it. So for example - heaven and hell (white and angelic side v red and black side); sunshine and darkness; ying and yang; red and blue on one side, yellow and green on the other; maybe soccer or football team supporters; a little girl who loves all things barbie and pink but who also loves rock concerts or cars; different seasons; That kind of thing."

So I chose to do a page on our wedding cake's. The journaling says: Our cakes couln't have been more different. The wedding cake was espresso flavored. The grooms cake was butter creme flavored. Their were real black eyed susans. The image on the grooms cake was from Ted Neugent's spirit of the wild!

Check it out!

Check out this super easy and fabulous Rak give away!! How fun!
thanks for the super fantastic give away Chelsea!

Here's hoping!

I talked about it last time and never did anything about it. So this time I decided I wouldn't let the opportunity pass me up....nor would I let my sneaking pessimistic attitude get the better of me! So I have entered 52sketches 52weeks design team call. Below is the sample lo I sent in with my app. It's based on Julies #13 sketch! Wish me luck!

It has been a month to the day since I scrapped and added to any of my galleries....It has been a crazy month, but I'm back to it....I wanted to share my newest lo's all based on Julies sketches. Btw....Julie chose her first DT! I can't wait to see what the DT has in store for us! It's an incredible team so I know it will be worth the wait and amazing!! I did a lo to use in my app for the DT, but between a funeral and going back to work for two weeks, not to mention my dd being out of town and Spring break....whew! like I said it's been a crazy month!

A design team...

Julie from 52 sketches is putting together a design team...I am totally considering sending an app.... I'm slightly hesitant, only because I'm not sure my lo's are good enough for a design team...but also because I'm not sure I understand all that is required. So I'm gonna make a lo to add to my app.... and depending on how it turns out I'll decide. If you wanna try for the the link above!

A truly emotional page.

This was such an emotional page to do. It is the first of many on this subject. It just literally took me 9 yrs to be able to make the first one....and I'm still balling!

The journaling says....

My sister,
How do I say Thank You?
It seems to fall short of my true feelings about this subject.
How do you thank a woman
who trusted you with the most
perfect event of her entire life?
A woman who gave you something
you couldn't have and wouldn't have
without her, I am reminded of your
gentle, kind, and loving spirit everyday.
It lives in the complete emodiment
of the most amazing human being I
have ever met. I see your face in her
smile. I feel you warmth in her hugs.
You and I will forever be connected,
you were connected to her for nine months.
I have been connected with her since
the day you placed her in my arms.
I made you a promise, the promise she
would have a better life than we did.
I have lived and worked every day
to make that promise a reality.
When one day you, her, and I meet
again I hope you see in her the joy,
hope, and innocence we lost so long
ago. I will never be able to repay you
for what you did. I can't imagine the
sacrifice you made. I could never ask
a woman to just give up her heart and
soul. To just release her life's biggest
accomplishment and joy. I will forever
be grateful that you did. Though I know
I will never fully understand the pain and
heartache you must have felt and still feel.
I will never know how a woman can be that
loving, giving, kind and selfless. I can
only strive to show her the example you
have set. As weak and little as it may
seem I can only say Thank You.
Thank you for the Greatest Gift.

Love your sister,

Just 4 scrapping!!

I have noticed the more time I spend on scrap sites, and the more blogs I look at of other scrapper that their sites are simply dedicated to their scrapping. So I'm making a blog site just for my scrapping....I will post pics, and news....if I ever win that kinda stuff. Thanks for the idea ladies....and to my hard core blog readers...don't worry my other scrap site is still just my personal take on the world at large.
