I don't like the Black ones

These pics are from Easter last year, and of course I am just getting around the scrapping them now! I love these photos and this story. Basically, I left the house to drop my mom and dad off at the airport. When I got back, Chloe had eaten all the colored jelly beans, and then partially chewed teh black ones and spit them back out on the floor. She must not like licorice!!! I was mad becuase there were like black stains on the carpet. But when I saw her guilty face, I thought to myself, "Oh how can i be mad? I don't like the black ones either!"

On another note; here are my LONG overdue March ATC's for the swap at ScrapCity. Ladies, they are in the mail!!

Finally, we went to the arboretum today and it was just beautiful out! Here are some token photos! My fav is the water lily!!

Scrapbook Express Call!

Well today was the deadline for the Scrapbook Express Design Team call. The criteria were to created 5 projects for the call: two of which you had to use a page maps sketch for (a LO and a card) then one other layout and a card and an altered item.

Here are my LO and card using the Page Maps sketch:

The other LO and card I submitted are here:

And finally, my altered item! I have been meaning to do this for a while now, and I jsut completed this today! I have 4, 12x12 shadow boxes that I have hanging in the kitchen. I wanted to create seasonal decor to put in there, and I have had the Autumn ones up since October!! Well I FINALLY did my "spring" ones today. I was inspired by an ad I saw in a scrappin' mag for Doodlebug Designs. THe papers are layered to give it some dimension:

PHEW! I finally finished! TFL!

Another digi and a template

I participated in a "Telephone Tag" LO challenge at YMBD. This is where you are sent a LO and you have to lift it, then your LO is sent to someone else. You don't get to see anyone else's until the whole thing is over. It is really fun! I wasn't at home when it was my turn, but I did have my laptop, so I did a digi LO!

I decided that I would first make a sketch based on the LO that I had to lift. I alterted the LO of the design slightly, and added a few more patterned papers. I love using other people's templates for digi LO's, so I decided to make this a PSD file and share it with you all! Just click HERE to d/l.

Here is the LO that I made for this challenge using my sketch:

I used elements and papers from about 5 different digi kits! I have a list if you want to know. TFL!
