There's absolutely no way I could possibly summarize the past 9 months on here so I won't even try. We'll just start with now and if you wanna know anything that's gone on in our lives since October just ask! LOL!
For the past few weeks I've been participating in a scrapping contest over at Memorable Seasons. It's a survivor type challenge and I'm happy to say that I have now made it into the Top 10. Even though it's too late to join the survivor part of the contest you can still complete the challenges for a chance at gift certificates or other cool prizes. I can't post my pages in any of my galleries yet but I can share them on here (Yeah! You caught me! The main reason I'm blogging is because I really, really, really want to share these 2 pages! LOL!).
The first week's challenge was "The American Child" & to use stars & stripes. I immediately thought of these photos from last year's 4th of July photo shoot. I really wanted to make a 3-dimensional pinwheel to go along with the photos.
I love red, white, & blue and was very pleased with my outcome.
The second challenge was to create homemade flowers & use a black cardstock background. I knew I wanted to use some of my denim flowers (tutorial will be posted soon!). I love this photo of Jason with the 2 tinies. They love their daddy and he sure loves them! I combined the denim with pearls to make it both masculine and girly. And I broke out the sewing machine for this one! (I'm pretty sure Hollis thought I was gonna sew clothes with it when he got it for me! LOL!)
