I Finally Scrapped!!!

It certainly has been a while and it felt so good! Sometimes it takes a little challenge to kick me in the butt, inspire me and just plain give me my mojo back. This first LO actually fell under 2 challenges. The first challenge was over at a brand new site called point.blank.period.. The challenge was to use bright colors and slap it with blue, use ribbon, buttons and bling, use a black and white photo and LO must be no bigger that 8 1/2 X 11 (that was a new one for me!). The kicker is to journal about what holds you back from being a better person. I liked this challenge and it WAS a challenge. I also had a bit of fun with the lettering for the title, so this fell into the newest BASB challenge:

Speaking of the BASB challenge...this one was a LO that I also had fun with the title. The challenge is called title envy. This was a great idea by Liz to just mix it up. Use different ways to create a cool title:

This was for a challenge that Denise came up with, just between us BASBers, to use up those brads we had laying around. This was the LO I came up with, to finally scrap this pic I took of my parents at Patriots place earlier this year. Love this pic of them and I love how this LO turned out:

This next LO was for the Back to School challenge over at Studio Calico. The challenge was to use red, staples, a star and a journaling block. This may be the fastest that I have ever scrapped Bryant's first day school picks:

If you hadn't noticed already, by the first 4 LO's, I was on a bit of a Jenni Bowlin kick. Love her stuff and had lots of fun creating with it. This last LO is actually not JB, but Piggy Tales. They are one of my new faves. I even did a happy dance in their booth at CKC this past May, but that is a story for another day. This LO was not for a challenge, but one I had done a while back, just for fun. Here is Bryant with his complete set of the 50 state quarters. He was so proud:

Well, there you have it. I scrapped. I scrapped alot. I am so happy! I may have to scrap some more today. Maybe I should clean my house??? Not as fun though...what do you think?
Happy Labor Day! Enjoy!!

do you subscribe to the JB kit club? I love what I see, but am worried I wouldn't know how to use it. However, after seeing how you used the JB items on "non vintage" layouts i think you may have sold me. Love your layouts. You are on a roll of creativity!
