Gorgeous Weekend!!!

Wow! The weather this weekend was absolutely perfect!!! Better yet, I think that it is supposed to pretty much stay that way all through the week. So, Junior the cat and I took advantage of it by opening the windows wide in the scrap room and while he sat there and dreamed about catching the squirrels and birds that ran by, I scrapped. There is something so extremely peaceful about scrapping while listening to the outside noises.

The layouts that I did this weekend were all done as a result of various challenges that have been posed. This first one was from a fairly new blog called Scrapjacked. They take an art piece from various scrapbookers and you are supposed to lift or scrapjack it. This week's is a gorgeous piece by Heidi Swapp.

This is my version of the layout which features all Chatterbox papers, Heidi Swapp letters and bling. The photo is from our vacation in the Carolina mtns from last summer.

This second layout was done in respnse to an ad challenge that Linda Peterson posted over on Cropper's Cottage.

I used Linda's ad challenge as inspiration for the frame around the ultrasound scan. There is tons of stamping, sanding, and a bit of paint on it. This is Kat's 4D scan from when she was 31 weeks in utero...just a glimpse of what she looks like.
Supplies used:
*crate Paper Samantha line
*Crate Paper Samantha chipboard
*stamps by Technique Tuesday, Rhonna Farrer, and Anna Griffen
*Punches (for the notebook paper look and tab) by Stampin Up
*Bazzill Cardstock

My final layout was done using the April sketch from the Basic Grey newsletter.

Supplies used: Basic Grey Phoebe, Daisy D's Rub-on, stamp, lettering template, Bazzill, and Stampin Up Notebook punch.

I hope to find some time to create some more today, but first I have to pay some attention to the mountains of laundry. Yuk! Have a happy Monday everyone!!!
