Scrapbook Sunday

Are you ready to see what I've been scrapbooking in my craft room last week?

First up is part of the 1 hour challenge held Monday on the Inspired to Scrap blog.  Stacey gave us a sketch and we had one hour to create a layout, take a picture, and post the picture on the forum.  Much harder than it sounds. 

This sketch was a great way for me to use up some of my paper scraps.  What scrapbooker doesn't have a stash of those?

After the time was up I went back into our hobby room and did the opposite page. 

I'm still debating on adding stitch lines to the "frame" like I did to the wavy circle on the first page.  What do you think?

Here they are together.  As you can see, I cut the wavy circle out of the center of a piece of cardstock, and used the "leftover frame" as a decorative element on the opposing page. 

I really struggled with the page above.  Apparently, it's not just a "girly" page thing for me.  LOL.  The problem was I had 4 pictures in military colors, and 1 of an bright sky blue airplane.   What's a girl to do?  The solution, for me, was to add invasion stripes (aka taffeta ribbon) to the RHS.  How fun!

In this close-up you can see how I sponged the edges of the torn cardstock.  Hope my boys like this page.

So, those are my pages for the week.  Only 4 this time.   :(  But, I am super happy about the last 2 being done.  They've stumped me for almost 2 weeks now.  :)  Sometimes my time has to be spent just getting things done. 

Creative Blessings,
