CHALLENGES-A GOOD THING!


Cardsister threw down a challenge a few weeks ago and though I enjoyed using my new stamp, Winter Post, I was just stumped (can we just really say I should have chosen a more appropriate stamp!, haha!, but I still love my stamp set!) on this one. Anyway, here it is along with another challenge that CraftyGoodies put out as well.

While on a visit to see Connie, she gave us all a kit to challenge us to use (or in my case, to start using) our scrapbooking skills. The kit included a scalloped sheet of paper, rick rack (sorry, Con, had to use something else instead) and buttons. I totally enjoyed working on this last night as I had come across 2 pics of Jim & I many years ago when we were in Okla. for Christmas one year and returned to the college campus where we met and fell in love. I revisited many happy times while working on this layout and I am so pumped to start another. I hope you enjoy my challenges and please someone please tell me what to do with my stamp set!! haha!! Also, if you love the paper I used in the scrapbooking challenge, go over to craftygoodies.blogspot.com and she has the best stuff through her AC Bailey catalog. Have a great day!!
Note: after I got new computer still don't have my familiar software editing on the new one. Sorry the pics are cropped. Will need to work on that this weekend!!
