Spring and new beginings

Well, I guess blogging about my plateau was enough to get me out of my slump.  I went to my weigh in yesterday and lost a few pounds!  Feels great.  I'm ready, I'm refreshed and ready to face this new phase of my challenge.  Thanks to the friends that e-mailed to lend encouragements.  I was very much appreciated!  It makes it so much easier to have your support!

Having the longer days is also helping with my mood.  Even though it's still nippy, seeing my tulips and hyacinths poking through is a fun sight to see.

So on the scrapbooking side.  I've been having a blast at the LCOM forum.  First they had a forum party full of fun games and challenges and second I enrolled in the Scrappin with the starts 10 week challenge.  I've survived the first two rounds and am now on week 3 with the greatest challenge yet!  Te see the reveals and the coplete challenges, chek out the LCOM forum.    Why don't you play along and show me what you can make following these guidelines :

Week 1 : Make a multi-photo layout (3 or more pics) with pattern paper only, no cardstock! All kinds of embellies, alphas, etc. are allowed. Also, the layout must have handwritten journaling!

Week 1 - CTMH winterland
Week 2 :So this week's challenge is to do a scrapcapture of Krissy's layout and incorporate ALL 4 of her "must do's"!!!
They are:
1) Distressed edges on paper
2) 2 or more patterned papers
3) Sewing or doodling
4) A Banner of some sort

Week 2 - Bo bunny
Week 3 : Make a layout incorporating these things.
1.   Bright colours
2.   “Boy” embellishments. No flowers or bling. 
3.   Pattern paper background
4.   Handwritten journaling on journaling card/tag or label stickers
5.   Something with dimension (not just flat on the page)
6.   Title with more than one size of font  

This one is going to be hard!!  I don't even know if I have bright colored 'boy' embellishments.  An no bling or flowers?!?!   My 3rd week layout will be revealed next Tuesday.

I've also been able to complete the Creative scrapper's sketch 201 - You have until March 31st to post your layout on their site for a chance to win a prize!


Have fun!
