July's Sponsored Challenge at Just Scrappin'

Over at Just Scrappin' we are having a 3 week long contest for a kit supplied by Kelly at Keep In Touch. Week one had some really simple requirements:

Challenge requirements:
- Create a ONE page layout
Layout must include:
- a ONE word title
- ONE picture
- patterned paper from only ONE manufacturer
- ONE arrow
- the word "ONE" or the number "1" must be included somewhere on the layout (in the journaling, title, or elsewhere on the layout)
- Use ONE (and only one) technique from the following list:
* sewing
* inking
* sanding
* doodling
You may use other techniques in addition to these but you must use ONE and only ONE from the above list. (ex. if you sew, you can't also ink)

Everything else is up to you.

So, here is my LO for week 1's challenge:


Material listing:

PP = American Crafts
CS = Bazzill
Flower = Heidi Grace
Ribbon = TS Kit
Flower Center = TS Kit
Gems = Doodlebug Designs
Fiber = EK Success



You are my princess!!! Do you know how important you are to me?

I know I wasn’t the easiest child to raise – I have always been a little stubborn and ornery but you never gave up on me.

I want you to know that I love you dearly and am proud to call you
MOM!!! You always have been and always will be #1 in my book!!

I love you Mom!!!

Thanks for looking!!!! This one was fun!!!

Happy Scrappin'..........over and out ya'll!!!

Hey Karen thanx for coming to check out my blog I'm still at that stage where it is all exciting that someone has left a comment so thankyou for brightening my morning. Can't wait till our sisterhood gets all up and going and congrats on a great blog here it's really interesting to wander.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
