MPS challenge 4


Challenge 4 was "Make a project using your least favorite or least used cartridge" I used Fablous Findes, I can't remember the last time I used this cart! It's still not my favorite and I had a hard time even picking out something to use on it, but I made it work.

MPS Challenge 3


For this one we had to "Think Outside the Box. Do something on your scrapbook page, card, or other item that you wouldn't normally do. Add something fun or crazy!!" For mine, I used my Cricut Marker which I actually sold these because I never used them, but couldn't find the red one at the time of the sale, so I will be giving this one to the buyer next time I see her :) Also I hand written something, I hardly ever journal on my pages so this was a challenge for me!

2nd MPS Challenge


For our second challenge we had to "Make a project incorporating your scraps!" This one was super simple for me because I have so many scraps of everything! Even the ribbon used was scraps!

MPS Challenge 1 on NSD


Our first challenge was to Make a scrapbook layout, card or other item with your mother or someone dear to you in mind. Here is what I came up with. The inside says "Happy Mother's Day" I made one for my mom and one for my MIL. I used George for the flower and curled the peddles and glimmer misted them as well. Sorry the picture is kind of blurry, I took several and this one was the one that came out the best on this dark gloomy day.

Change in hobby for a while...

Well, I really haven't been in the mood for scrapping lately. I'm not sure why, one of my friends had mentioned that she heard that the average length for a hobby is 7 years, well guess what.. my 7 years is up for scrapping. I don't think I'm done, I just think I need a little bit of a break from it. I found myself just throwing pages together and not even being proud of them. I'm sure I'll still continue developing my pictures as they are on sale, and buying the newest product (I got the G for Christmas)

In the mean time, I have found a new hobby. Crocheting :) I find it so relaxing. So far I have made several wash/dish cloths for practice, then matching Hat, Scarf and fingerless mittens! I'm looking forward to making some sun dresses for my daughter, a new scarf for my oldest son, and something neat (not sure what yet?) for my middle son.
