good times

Good afternoon my talented friends. I am in scrappy heaven this weekend.  I scrapped a lot of the day yesterday evening and into the wee early hours of the morn.. say 2am. Hubs and I then watched Big Brother and went to sleep.  The CROP going on at TallyScrapper right now is off and running full steam ahead.  We're playing games like It's MINE!!! and some other pass the time games.. there are tons of challenges in the galleries, and we're meeting some wonderful new ladies as well.

Having some good times. I've used up most all of my August Tallyscrapper kit, it was so fun to combine all the funky wild goodness in that kit. Wanna see what I created yesterday?

This challenge is to lift a member of the DT.  I chose my evil freaky twin (EFT) MichelleS' layout she made for an old LEO (layout every other day) challenge. You can see Michelle's HERE. I made some scrappy flowers, and hand-cut my title. Simple little details like that can really make a layout pop. One of my favorite things about the kit this month were the blooms and the gorgeous zebra and rainbow ribbon. It is sadly all gone, but I would order more again in a heart beat.

This next layout is based off a fun challenge where you choose your own scrappy supplies from a list, and then add in more so the list keeps going and going. My three items from the list were: Fish, Paper Clip, and distressing. LRC_KsFirstFish Fish kinda threw us when it was put in the list, so I went ahead and used a photo of Katelyn catching her first fish with Grandma at the lake. Can't believe how little she was in this photo. LRC_KsFirstFish-cl1 I'm also using the August TallyScrapper kit for this layout. See the zebra trim? LRC_KsFirstFish-cl2 loves it. LRC_KsFirstFish-cl4
I did some distressing on the papers and on the corners of the photos using Imaginisce D-Stress tool, as well as on the Cosmo Cricket chipboard alpha. I then colored over the distressing with a copic marker YR23.
Lastly I finished up a challenge that's been going on the last 11 weeks called Tally Treasure Hunt. Our challenge this week was to grab a photo of leaves from beneath look upwards, and to use a POP of purple on the layout. LRC_PerfectLight
I think today I'd like to complete two more layouts, maybe even three. Or some cards. heck, I don't know.. there is so much that can be done this weekend at the crop. Of course, we have until Sat the 20th and Sun the 21st to complete and upload our projects. Hope you're able to pop in and enjoy the weekend with us!

Til next time, xoxo
