You know why I love playing along with Scrapbooker's Anonymous? Whenever I do a project for their challenges, EVERYONE from the DT stops by my blog to leave a comment (well, maybe not everyone, I've never actually counted, but it's probably pretty close)! That makes a lady feel pretty nice, and appreciated! Their challenge this month is to use 6 or more patterned papers from a mini deck. Well, I honestly didn't think I'd be able to play along this month because I only have one mini deck (Basic Grey Sugared) and I used pretty much all of it on a couple of mini albums. Once I tracked down my scraps (and this opened up my eyes to just how much of a hoarder I am, because I had some pretty tiny scraps), I realized I had enough to join in, as long as I was a bit creative. I think at last count I had 11 different patterns on this page, and I even used EYELETS!!! I know, I didn't think I had any at all, but I found 'em and used 'em! (Now if I could only find my sewing machine!) Oh, I also got to break out my BRAND NEW Hero Arts background stamp I won from Creative Accents, just for commenting on their blog - thanks, ladies!
I also decided to use this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:
I really like it, I think it's very unique. Seems like I can only scrap using a sketch these days, but I'm cool with that!
I know the photos aren't the best quality, but I had to make a page about this, it was too cute! Ailis really worked up a sweat, running and doing a modified long jump, over and over and over. Brenna was there, too, watching, cheering, and learning how to stand (in her own safe area of the rec room)! And I got to scrap, so how much better could it be?
