LRW Basic Grey

It has been a while since I have played along at Little Red Wagon. This week's challenge was to use Basic Grey. I love most BG lines and had some "Jolly" left over from last year. I made this card from my scraps. Even the brads are BG! I added some trim and twine from my wagon. Thanks for another great challenges ladies!

The Color Room

This week it is my turn to post a sketch or layout challenge over at TSF and I chose a palette from The Color Room. The Australian site not only posts sketches for inspiration, but colour palettes and photos of gorgeously decorated rooms as well!

Here is my take on it. My yellowy gold is more green than in should be, but you get the idea! I used pp and cs from SEI's Black Orchid collection. The glittered letter stickers are from White Blossom and the mini alpha stickers are MLS.

I love how this page from Dubai turned out and I will definitely be checking out the Color Room for inspiration!

Christmas Card Exchange

A while ago, in a moment of weakness (!) I signed up for a Christmas card exchange over at TSF. I often find card crafting a challenge. I think I want to do "too much" on each card...try out all the new techniques or products at once. And I must admit I am often intimidated by the amazing cards created by my fellow scrapbookers!
For my cards I used some DCWV papers, various sentiment and image stamps, ribbon, and red office labels. It also gave me a chance to get some much needed copic colouring practice. They are all similar, with the variety in the coloured images, sentiments and ribbon used.
Here are a few of the cards:

And here they are all together. Looking forward to the exchange get together in December to see what the other ladies created!

It is my turn over at TSF to post a card challenge. How about a peek-a-boo card? Cut a window in your card and let the sentiment shine through!

I punched a circle and then framed it with a QK die cut. The pp and sentiment sticker are from 3 Bugs in a Rug.

Thanks for peekin'!

Three Friends Retreat

This week my scrapbook friends and I got together to scrap at my house. It had been ages since we did that. It felt just like old times though! We got to catch up over some wine and snacks and complete a few layouts.

I made this layout of our retreat last fall, the last one we did together. It was a fabulous time, wonderful memories! We are long overdue for another one...maybe in the spring??

Thanks ladies! I hope we can scrap together again soon!

Little Red Wagon- Red

Little Red Wagon is celebrating its one year anniversary! Congratulations ladies! Your challenges are always so much fun.

For the special occasion, this week's challenge asks for red of course! I made this Christmas card with DCWV papers and a new image and my copics.

Congratulations again ladies!
