Just Add Scraps & A RAK

Hey yall! We just had a fun 'Just Add Scraps' challenge over at Treasured Scrapbooking. If you are not sure what this is, I'll explain it for ya. It is so fun! We are given a sketch and challenged to create a layout only using scraps from our scrappy stash. It is a great way to use up those scraps we all have in our scrappy rooms. For this round, I decided to use up some scraps I had leftover from one of my kits at Treasured Scrapbooking. Here is the page I created using the sketch. This is me, Mom, and Carter having some fun at the Crayola Factory in Spring of 08.

I pulled out the Cuttlebug and used it on the strips.

As an added bonus this time, we were challenged to make a card using the leftover scraps from the layout. I did not have too many left, so I created this little mini 3x3 card using the same sketch I used for the LO. It's tiny, but thought it would work well when I need to send out a RAK or something.

And speaking of RAK's....it's been too long since I had one! So how about a RAK today. I have some Urban Lily 'Secret Keeper' Windows chipboard and a Daisy D's CD Minibook up for grabs. All you have to do is be a follower of this blog and leave a comment!!! That's it! I will announce a winner on Friday!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
