Scrapping Out Loud blog challenge

Taking advantage of my day off. :)
This weeks challenge is "All about Mom".
You had to create a LO about your mom, or being a mom,
or a sister, etc.
My layout is not entirely based on the
sketch provided but I used elements from
the sketch ... like the doodling. :)
My picture is mounted on top of a
envelope, with a card inside.

Lori's weekly challenge #14

The challenge for this week was to use as much white
as possible for embellies, etc.
Since I liked the color purple from the other
challenge I decided to try it with white.

Scrapping Out Loud blog challenge

Color Shy challenge.
For this challenge you had to create a layout
using colors that you never use. For me,
purple and green are colors that I never go for.
After finishing this layout I liked the color
enough to do another layout with it. LOL
My layout is based on a sketch provided
but tweaked a bit so I could have lots of room
to journal.
