Ramblings and My Page Challenge

Let me start this off by letting everyone know, I live.  I have been scrapping still but my main passion this year has been catching up on my 12x12 layouts.  Most of these consist of pictures of my boys (they will always be my boys, even though they are no longer even teenagers).  Long ago both boys requested that I do not publish pages of them, they love my scrapping but once out there on the net, always on the net.  So out of respect to them I do not post any of my layouts on my blog.  This leaves only challenges, swaps and miscellaneous projects.  So to all those that think I have wavered in my craft, I am still scrapping, well, not as much now that it is not winter, but still..........

I am still plugging along at the page challenges over at SC and have done one page each of my 2 minis with the latest challenge.  First I have to say this was harder for me this time as I am not a Madonna fan.  Let me explain, the challenge was "Material World".  I was never a material girl in a material world.  I do not scrap with fabrics etc and this was a thinker for me.  Anyhow, my first page has burlap and twill ribbon, both a material product.  

My second page all I could come up with was some seam binding ribbon for a fabric.

I am enjoying this challenge but it is very difficult to pick up and continues every couple weeks or so, have to find the mini mojo again, so a real challenge.  Love it!

Page Challenge

Wow I sure am slow at updating my blog lately.  I have been scrapping still, but with spring here for now, I have been walking the dog, cleaning the yard and just being outdoors.  Anyhow the new challenge over at scrapping carolina was to use 2 decorative borders on your pages.  I did one of each of my albums using this challenge.  For the 8x8 mini I used 2 different Martha Stewart punches, a picket fence and the scallop.

For the 6x6 I used a notebook punch and a Tim Holtz on the edge die for the tab.
I hope you check into the challenges at SC and other places,  many to choose from, lots of fun to get your creativity jump started.
