Catching up on DT Assignments...

wow- I am behind on posting here!! This is what happens when my life goes for "lady of leisure" to "part-time working girl"...have had lots of layouts done for DT assignments lately, time to share them with you! First up is a layout I created for the latest challenge at Twisted Tuesdays:

The challenge was to use a button and/or brad on your creation, with the added twist of paper piecing.I even had button pattern paper that I thought would be fun to include! 

next up is my layout for the Tin Robot challenge at Child's Play Challenges:
I had these 3 adorable pics of my niece struggling to make her way into an astronaut helmet- perfect for this challenge! I also added a border using a super cute robot/gear punch, and a funny little salute to "Mork and Mindy" in my title!

And finally I have super-sweet Valentine layout I created for True XOXO Scrapbooking:

I used a valentine doily I purchased at the Dollar Tree- 16 of these jumbo heart doilies for just $1!!!

Thanks for stopping by, still have more layouts to share, but 3's enough for today! =) T

You Clean Up Good- Child's Play Challenges

This week at Child's Play Challenges we're getting scrapping inspiration from the game Don't Break the Ice, here's that I came up with:

I decided to use the white, blue and red from the game to create my layout. I cut my graph paper into squares to mimic the ice cubes of the game, and then layered a few scraps of red, white and blue to create a cluster for my title.

Stop on over to Child's Play Challenges to see how the rest of the DT is Breaking the Ice! =) T

Head Over Heels- Scrap It With a Song

This month at Scrap It With a Song we're playing along with romantic songs. Next on the playlist is Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears, here's what I came up with:

Yes, my son is head over heels in love with his rescue kitty, Mr. Brightside! I have done several layouts of the 2 of them together, it's such a special bond they have and I love to document those meaningful and simple moments. For this layout I went to my go-to all-time favorite color-combo, turquoise and red. I just love how vibrant the red is against the turquoise! Other than my background paper, the rest of my layout is out together with the help of my scrap bin. See the red strip across the top of the layout? That's the reverse side of the dotted background. I trimmed the paper, flipped it over and taped the back to keep it in place! Bits of pattern paper here, portions of stickers there, and I have a quick and easy layout! =) T

"Head Over Heels" Challenges:
-Scrap It With a Song Head Over Heels
-Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge favorite color combo
-Fresh Brewed Blog hearts and dots
-Crafting By Design hearts, non-valentine

Night at the Museum- Childs Play Challenges

Hello! Long time no blog! Trying to get back into my scrapping routine- went back to work in December, and combined with Christmas craziness I've lost my mojo! Spent the majority of lats weekend's blizzar din the craft room, so hopefully I'm back!!

Today's layout is for the Paper Doilies challenge at Child's Play Challenges:

Well, it's not super-obvious, but I had a sheet of Stampin Up stickers that were sort of doiley-ish, so I put 3 of them to use on the page! You'll have to stop by the Child's Play Challenges blog to see the rest of the DT's creations, much more frilly and doiley-filled!!

I created 8 layouts last weekend, so I'll be back soon with another post, lots of creativity to share! =) T
