Feeling Green?

I was when I made this Project Life spread.  On March 16th, there was a St. Patrick's Day festival in my local area.  I took a lot of pictures at the event, so I decided to do a whole 12 x 12 spread that focused just on the day...and since it was all about St. Patty's, I had to keep it green :o)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a happy Friday tomorrow!

Tackling Some Challenges

Good morning, everyone.  I have two layouts that I'd like to share with you today.  They were both done for challenges over at Studio Calico.

This first layout was made for a scraplift challenge.  We were supposed to scraplift this amazing layout.  Here's my take:

For the second challenge, we were supposed to use a mask:

For the background I used a cool technique that was shown in a video by Corrie Jones on the Evalicious blog.

Thanks for stopping by...happy hump day!

The Studio | March Recipe Challenge

Good morning, everyone!  Where is the year going?  It's March already!!  However, a new month means new challenges at The Studio.  Today's challenge is a recipe challenge that was created by yours truly.  I picked a fun, easy recipe that contained products that I felt certain almost everyone has in their stash:
*Kraft cardstock
*Mist or paint
*At least one tag
*At least 2 different types of alphas

I love the results from the design team!  Everyone on the team has such a fun, unique style, so you get so many different, cool layouts.  I actually created a layout that strayed a bit from my usual style:
Like I said, it's a bit unusual for me...and I hated it at first, but it's growing on me and I think I actually sort of like it now...

Please pop on over to The Studio to play along!
