Lots of scrappy stuff happening this week.
The first thing being that Lisa at Create My Keepsake announced that she was closing her online store at the end of August. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this online community for the past 15 months and especially being a part of the DT there since January. I will miss CMK.
Thankfully though, members there have been posting about other online sites that they will sign up at, so I know that I will still be able to stay in contact with the online friends I've made at CMK.
I noticed that I had some cards that I made this summer saved on my computer that I never posted, so I thought I'd do that now.
I made this card for my wonderful friend, Val, for her birthday in July.
And this one for my twin brother's birthday last Friday. It's a little different from my usual style, but I was pretty happy with it.
And this one I made for my mom. I stamped on Bazzill cardstock with a Basic Grey stamp and Versamark ink and then heat embossed it.
The August DT challenge at MSS is a theme challenge: summer. Here's the layout I created for that:
Danielle at Scrap for a Cure posted a challenge to use Ali Edward's template to create a layout. Here's my version:
The layout I made of my kids documenting our incredible feat of delivering 473 phonebooks in one morning with great attitudes:
And a layout I made for a contest at A Million Memories where the challenge was to use a vintage photo and some lace trim. Normally, I don't have any vintage photos, but last week, I was cleaning up some photos on my computer and came across this one of my parents that I had used for a mini-book and layout I made for my mom three years ago. When I first saw this photo in my mom's wedding album, I thought it was such a gem! It's my mom and my dad dancing at their wedding. Here's the layout I made with it this week (which also doubled for Marcy's Wednesday Blog Challenge at MSS to cut out the pattern from a piece of patterned paper):
It's Morden's Corn & Apple Festival this weekend, so I don't anticipate scrapping very much this weekend, but I'm sure I'll be taking lots of photos!
Thanks for looking!
