A Creatin' Frenzy!!!

Hey yall! Well, as you know, I've been busy busy! I haven't had much time to sit down and scrap. So Mom and I took advantage of free time yesterday and got our scrap on! LOL. I got 5 LO's done and she got 4 LO's done. It felt so good to scrap!!! Here is what I accomplished:

Me, Myself, And I
This layout is for a challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking where you had to scrap about yourself and list things about you. I made my own flowers for this one, which are faux Prima Lollipop flowers. These are so easy to make!!! I used some Jenni Bowlin Chalkboard alphas. Also, I used some bling, distressing, velvet trim, and pom pom trim.

Good Times
This is a layout of me and my good friend, Cristal. I did this for a challenge where you were to use lots of yellow. I do not use yellow too much, but this was a refreshing change for me. I like the yellow alot. I used my Cuttlebug for the butterfly. I also incorporated some bling, Thickers, and Memory Makers Tiny Alpha's.

Best Pals
This layout is of me and my very best friend, my Mom. I did this layout for a challenge on Just Scrappin' where you were to create a poem and use it on you layout. I will be the first one to admit, I am not known for my writing skills! LOL. But I did try. I wrote my poem on the tag and it reads:
" Mom I want you to know,
That our friendship will always continue to grow!
I treasure every moment that we share,
I hope you will always know that I care!
You mean everything to me,
And that is the way it will always be!"
I used some twine to tie a bow at the top of my tag. I also incorporated some flowers, buttons, bling, stitching, lace, distressing, and letter stickers.

I Have A Dream
I did this layout for a challenge where you were to scrap your dream job. My dream job is to be a bridal designer/bridal consultant. I used Wedding Solutions for the bridal gown and for the crown. I used Printing Press for the 'I have a' and Home Accents for the 'dream.' I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for the dress. I added Stickles to the dress, crown, and title. Also, I added some delicate lace and pink velvet trim. The journaling reads:
"I have a dream of the perfect job for me! Of all the professions out there, the one that would be a perfect fit for me would be a bridal designer/consultant! I would be in heaven every single day surrounded by glamorous gowns and bridal accessories! To experience that special moment when a bride finds that perfect gown to walk down the aisle in. I remember that moment during my own bridal fitting. It was a moment that I will never forget! I remember the moment I looked at myself in the mirror. I truly felt beautiful! I turned to my mother and exclaimed..."I feel just like Princess Diana!" Would that not be so awesome? To help another bride-to-be create that special moment? It would be right up my alley and I could honestly say that I would look forward to going to work every single day! It would be my dream job! I know I would be good at it! So maybe, one day, my dream will become a reality!"

This layout is of the 'Moulin Rouge' in Paris, France. We took a tour of the city during our visit there and Mom snapped this pic from the tour bus. We did stop there for like a minute and you had to option to go in and stay for a while, but we decided not to. I am using this for a challenge where you had to scrap with a postcard. So naturally, I used a 'Moulin Rouge' postcard. I used Mini Monograms for the alphas, which I glittered with Stickles glitter glue. I also used Mini Monograms for my scalloped rectangle shaped paper in the background. I stitched around the edge of the layout and then distressed. I also incorporated some ball fringe and a Paris Epoxy Sticker. Here it is:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope yall have a beautiful day! I will be gone until Thursday. Brandon and I are driving back to PA on Wednesday, so keep us in your prayers if you could. Thanks!
Big hugs!
Pin It!
