Post NSD

Although I got no scrappy time in yesterday, NSD was a blast! I enjoyed poking in on the boards and seeing all the fun going around. Lots and lots of wonderful creations from the challenges over at WeScrap and crazy fun threads going on at Bad Girls.

Now that I have my challenges for NSD posted (as of yesterday) I can share my samples here.
My first challenge was a magazine challenge. I bought this magazine back in the fall because I loved the colours and the style of the cover and was really inspired by it. I finally pulled it back out and used it.
And here's my layout.

I love that little frame! I bought it for a dollar at Micheal's. It was bright blue. It took many coats of white to cover it. The couple in the picture is Steve's step sister and her boyfriend. Such a beautiful couple!
I've been playing with fabric more and more lately. I decided to post a fabric challenge as well. For this layout, I hand stitched my fabric first and then glued it down to my page.

And the next project I have to share is my second entry for the tote bag challenge at Bad Girls. I loved this kit so much! I also loved the stickers in the kit. I knew what I wanted to do with them right away. Using the Sassafras stickers, Sassafras paper (all but the butterfly paper, that's Amercian Crafts..too cute not to use!) and Sassafras paper whimsies I created a mini book of "vintage" Steve and I. It's not complete yet. I want to fill it in with facts from our parents.

Until next time...

I love the magazine challenge page Jen- so striking! And that mini-book is just too cute! I wasn't too sure about the Sassafras at first but I love what you've done with it!
