Saturday, September 10


As I mentioned a few posts ago, they are having a birthday scrapapalooza over at The Paper Variety that I've been having a blast playing along with.  If you are just hearing about this first here, where HAVE you been LOL?!?!  Day 1 kicked off with a kick-booty blog hop and a challenge to incorporate stamps (digi or ink) into your project.  Day 2 asked us to create a layout with our favorite manufacturer.  I haven't done that one yet, but it's next on my to-do list.  Day 3 was to scrap your fav photos (if I'm not mistaken it's the post JUST below this one), and now we are at Day 4.  Pick your favorite color and create a layout that is monochromatic (meaning only using shades of that color).  Though they did add that we can use neutrals which was a big 'whew!' because I'd just been itching to use this Authentique paper and yellow is my absolute favorite color...ever.  Has been as long as I can remember.  I was once told that I picked it when I was in Kindergarten because I felt sorry for it, because no one else ever picked it!  LOL.  So I included grey/black/white accents to top off the YELLOW-SPLOSION going on here.  I've got a few shades in the flower cluster, but most of it is sunshiney fav :)

The sketch I followed (yes, there is always a sketch I follow...I'm addicted LOL) is by Sassy Lil' Sketches.  Click on over and give it a go if you get a chance.  I love that it challenged me to get my flower clusters I love so much out of the corner and move it to the bottom edge.  I decided not to do a huge banner because it's not really a celebration theme, but still tucked a handmade banner into the flower cluster and I love it :)
