Online Crop January 26-February 1, 2015

It is coming!  Over at Scraprageous Messageboards (link:

 Check out the main thread for challenges.  The theme for this crop - 2015 - A year to complete a challenge!

You can pick your own challenge - then complete it!  It is that simple. 
  • Some may be small challenges - ex: create a waterfall card
  • Some may be large challenges - ex: complete a project 365
  • Some may be somewhere in between - ex: use my stash to create a mini album
  • There are lots of others - learn to create swaps, try out some tags, make a paper bow and more!
Whatever your challenge - our crop can help you with inspiration.

How to participate?
  • Sign up as a member (if you haven't yet)
  • Make sure you have a photo sharing account (Flickr, Photo Bucket, etc - there are lots - even using your own blog to upload photos then post on the site).
  • Participate!  You must post photos of your projects to participate.
  • Feel free to chat things up
  • Swaps have gone on hiatus until after the first part of 2015, but they will be back by spring.  Our hostesses needed a well deserved break for a few months.  If you are interested in becoming a hostess, contact me via  
That is it - just come on over and have some fun.  The only other rule - everything must be created new as of the start of the crop.  See you soon!!!!!

Santa Came to Town

To family Christmas, just like he has for many years past.  The only difference - my son was a Santa's helper this year!

some weekend fun!

First, for a PSL Challenge over at Club Scrap, a project with orange and purple - clasp envelopes - coin size.  Made with the envelope punch board from WE R Memory Keepers.  This is quickly becoming a favorite tool!
Also for the PSL challenge - using Fossils collection paper - two more layouts.  A Christmas and a Boy Scouts Recycling.

Next, some various layouts made for the year long challenge over at Scraprageous Messageboards.  I am enjoying getting back into the swing of things.  The first, two page layout (sheep) used a couple of swaps - the ewe and two lambs, and the journal card with envelope.

Next, using Bo Bunny's paper (sorry, I don't remember the name) and a deco square along with some alcohol inked snowflakes I had on hand, I created a two page layout about an ice storm.We had to chip ice that was about 1/4" or so thick off the vehicles before we could get them open.  Adult type job as we didn't want additional dents, dings, scratches, etc..  LOL

Next - two more swaps appeared in this layout - a tag with the word Muse and a book in the corner.

Finally - a puppy layout using bits and pieces on hand as well as a swap- the photo mat.  Had a ton of fun just putting things together.  I didn't realize how relaxing I find scrapping/creating until noticing how long it has been since I have spent time being creative (simple, but enjoyable) for layouts for my family.
