Crop Therapy

I was on a roll, until this stupid cold hit!!  I finished 5 layouts from Friday to Monday...Yay!  But now I am on stand still til I feel better.  I have two meters for judging the severity of how bad I feel...(1) do I feel like scrapbooking, (2) do I feel like going to church.  If the answer to either of these questions is "No", then I know it's pretty serious!  Even though I don't feel like actually doing a page, I guess I'll have to settle for posting the ones I've already done. 

This first one is for Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge 4.29, using polka dots and stripes:

This one was fun.  I did it for one of the Issue Challenges on Club CK, which was to use a monogram on your lo.  I bought a pack of the Tim Holtz ideology papers at Michael's and had fun spray misting and distressing on this one.  I cut star shapes out of a 12x12 piece of paper and used it as a mask to spray mist the stars and then added the Jillibean Canvas stars to the center to add dimension.

I am still trying to finish out Christmas, so here is the other Christmas lo I got completed:

I did this lo based off of a Sketch Support sketch:

I did this last one for one of the NSD challenges at Club CK this week.  They are doing a week of activities to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day.  Yesterday's challenge was to use 3 or more cell phone photos on your lo.  This was a great challenge, because I love popping my cell phone out to take photos when I don't have my camera with me.

These last two were sent in for submission calls to Creating Keepsakes, but I never heard back, so now I can get them posted.


  1. On a roll alright, you did an amazing job, Nice work!!!

    I just love how people do Christmas LOs when it's not Christmas, this really inspires me to get all my Christams photos out and start doing them, it's such a fun time of the year in this house and brings back all wonderful memories
