Scrappy Challenge Fun

I wanted to share some more of the fun projects that I have been working on. I am always up for a great scrappy challenge. There are so many out there to try. They really can get the old creative juices flowing. KWIM?? These are just a few that I have tried lately. The first one is the blog challenge over at Studio Calico. It was to use scaps left over from one of their kits. I used my scraps from the 'Sherwood Forrest' kit. I cut them into strips to create a 'woven ribbon' look. I also used strips to frame the photo. Love the embelishments and Heidi Swapp metalic chipboard letters too. I like a good reason to use up my scraps, 'cause I NEVER throw any of it away. It will get used! This was the perfect opportunity. Plus I have had this pic of my son for many, many, many moons (he is now 8!) This pic is so cute and was just waiting for the PERFECT LO:

This beautiful card is a little workshop over at Nancy Vandenberg's blog. She has the cutest card designs. Here is my take on her newest tutorial :

What more can I say about Got Sketch 101? This class officially starts tomorrow, but the pre-class projects have been so much FUN! Plus, I am getting to use my stash and get some much needed scrapping done. Lots of great gals over there to. Getting so inspired! LOVE that!

Oooooooo....and last but not least...I got to see the amazing (& very sexy!) Tim Mcgraw in concert last night. I have seen Tim many, many times in concert. Sigh..he is just AWESOME! I wanted to share this LO I made for a challenge at the Junkitz site last year. Some co-worker friends of mine gave this to me for my birthday a couple of years back. Imagine walking into your office and there was Tim to greet you for your birthday. SWEET!


So...check out the challenges above and if you know of a great challenge.. Please share! :-)
