Challenges on a Satuday Night

I got some time to scrapbook this afternoon after packing some of my scrapbooking goodies for the scrapbook retreat this coming weekend! Woo hoo! I am soooo excited! (and a little nervous... I have never been to any crop or ANYTHING!) We are out of school on Friday for a random holiday and so I will be perfectly rested and ready to scrapbook late!

Anyway... to my projects...

I used this Let's Get Sketchy! sketch for my layout here. I had some fun with October Afternoon "Report Card" and "Schoolhouse" papers. Hmm... school papers for a regular layout? Yup! They worked great! I think they give a classic look to the page. :) Everything else on this page is OA as well. This layout is about our NEW car that we got last weekend! It's my mom's, really, but it's still so exciting to get a brand-spankin' new vehicle!! It's a 2012 Chevy Sonic. Gets 37+ mpg! :O


Oh- and I just HAVE to post this photo. Doesn't my new camera focus so awesome??? I love stitching through these OA letter stickers. I love the look. And an added bonus- I used patterned letter stickers! I can hardly ever work those into my page. They looked to pattern-y at first, but now that I've stepped away from the layout and came back to it, I like them.

And I have a card to share too. I used this Paper Bakery Kits sketch on this card. Everything on this project is from Jillibean Soup's "Blossom Soup" line. Man, what is it with me and using coordinating products today? LOL


And did you know about Frosted Designs' Online Crop coming up this weekend? There will be lots of challenges and prizes-- including one hosted by yours truly! :)

Looks like your camera works awesome! :)

Love your LO. Great looking car and the papers certainly don't look like school themed ones. Nice stitching.
The card is so pretty. I like the green patterned paper and the corrugated texture looks so cool.

Thanks for sharing and I will be back to see what you create at your crop. Have a great time! :)
