I Scrapped!

Yes I did. I have completed two more of Janna's Challenge's.

The first is for challenge #16 which is:

"My challenge for you this week: LOTS OF TEXTURE...doesn't mean lots of bulk...think VISUAL texture: find some NEW ways to add texture."

This LO definately has lots of texture and layering. I 'shopped my stash' again and found the perfect papers. They are some very old Creative Imaginations papers that I love, love, love. I wanted this to be a very cool boy LO that I could frame up to hang in Bryant's room. It really was a cool & exciting moment for him. He got to meet Don Orsillo! Don is one of the NESN (New England Sports Network) TV Red Sox game commentators. We see him on TV all the time and he met him by chance, before a game he went to a couple of weeks ago. Very cool indeed!

This next LO is for challenge # 18 which is:


This is another one that created to frame up for Bryant's room. Bryant meeting the very entertaining Fitzy (aka Nick Stevens) who is the host of NESN's New England sports trivia game show 'Pocket Money'. I really loved this pic of them together and thought that it would be cool for B to have. I again 'shopped my stash' and used some more of my old favorites. I used some old Scrapworks paper that I love and some cool Jenni Bowlin papers. they really seemed to blend together well AND I sewed on the page. I love how this one turned out!

I am not going to lie. It took me forever and a day to complete these two pages. I wanted them to be perfect. Sometimes it just happens that way. It is okay. I love the result. Now I need to find the perfect frames and up on B's wall they will go.


Happy Scrappin'!!

These are awesome! I hear you about layouts taking forever. My latest ones have been the same way. Can be frustrating at times, but it is all good, right?
