Scrapping Stuff

This weekend just past I had the pleasure of hosting the mini cybercrop over at Chookscraps. I got to set the challenges this weekend and it was great to see what the ladies came up with.

The first challenge was an Oscars theme challenge. You had to create a layout about a person in your life that you felt deserved an Oscar . A person that needs that special recognition - they neeed to know how you felt. You also needed to include on your layout something that you have recently purchased, a flower (or two or three) and some bling of some sort.

This was an easy choice for me...I chose to do a layout on Lolly and her new found enthusiasm for school this year. (more on this later)
I was doubling dipping a lot of layouts this weekend as I was also doing the challenges over at Scrap Therapy ....this layout also took in the sketch challenge over there...this sketch is one of the fantastic sketches by the very talented Just Jini. *smoochies to you girl*

The second challenge was to scrapbook a photo or memory from your childhood. You also had to use paint and doodling on your page.
I chose to scrap my favorite childhood movie (man do you believe this was released in 1978) This layout also took in another challenge at Scrap Therapy which was to use a movie as inspiration for a layout.

The third challenge at Chookscraps was a sketch challenge...I used my layout for the the Scrap Idol comp I am involved in at my LSS. We had to scrap a double layout on scrapping....

I chose to scrap my obession with scrapping supplies. LOL
The last layout for this weekend was the third challenge at Scrap Therapy. You had to use green and four photos.

This layou is a bit of a tongue in cheek note to Boo about how fast she is growing up and how she can just STOP IT for a while.

**On a different note...I know I have been a slack blogger lately. I will tell you why later. I am setting myself a challenge now though...I am going to blog every day for thirty might not be a scrapping blog...and it might not be about me and mine...but I will blog!!
