Chris recently learned to tie his shoes! It was a big important day and I'm so glad I was able to get it documented before I forgot all the details. He was so proud of himself for figuring it out and I was so happy for him. 

The challenge is from Shimelle's Weekly Challenge. This week she asked what our favorite color was (mine is green) and we could use that color to make a monochromatic page. I've never done one with so much green so this was fun. I chose the pictures because he was very specific about wanting those green shoes for Christmas. They just had to be green.

First Flyers Game

This time I challenged myself to do a few things: 
1. Use more than 2 photos
2. Pick the photos first
3. Double Page Layout

This was a big challenge for me because I usually use one or two pictures; I never pick photos first - I always do the layout first and then decide what pictures should go on it; and I very rarely feel coordinated and organized enough to do a double page. Sometimes I have to challenge myself to do things out of my comfort zone!

3 Challenges

Here's a layout I did with one of Shimelle's old Sketches of the Week (I think it is from 2011!) 

This is a layout I did for Hip Kits Club's weekly Facebook Challenge. It was based on a sketch with many circles. I decided to use ink instead of paper for that part. 

For this layout, I was inspired by Shimelle to scrapbook using reds and pinks. I like the way it turned out! 

Big News

Today's layout is for this week's challenge on Shimelle's Blog to scrapbook with old and new supplies. I used bits from Shimelle's Starshine collection and some older Magge Holmes stickers, an old Maternity sticker set from Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken, very old paper from a 12x12 pad I bought from Michael's years ago, a quote from an old book of quotes I also bought a craft store years ago, and some pink gems. I love mixing old and new items together! Especially when I get to use things from my first days of scrapping.

Our Love is Epic

This week I did another challenge from Shimelle's Blog  and I'm loving how much inspiration I am getting from there lately! I am starting to feel the challenge-loving spirit again and am excited to have more time to scrap after April when I will finally be done with wedding planning! And I'll have a ton of new pictures to scrap! 

Because I'm marrying this guy:

And I've been doing lots and lots of crafty thing for the wedding. Cannot wait to go on a vacation with him!

Selfie Challenge

Today I'm sharing my response to Shimelle's Selfie Challenge by scrapbooking a page with a selfie in it on my travel to Arkansas in 2008. The papers are from different Crate Paper collections. 

I'm excited to start sharing my work again!
