30 Days of Scrap-Day One!

Hey, Hey!

I've been thinking about this for awhile and I finally realized that if there's any time to do 30 days of scrap now is the time!! So here's my rationale -

1.  I am expecting my second child in November and I simply might not have the time I really want to dedicate to my paper projects!

2. To catch up!

3. To use my supplies... (will this be an excuse to buy more?)

4. I am going on vacation on Sept 5th so it will lead me right up to Sept 4th! (Too perfect for words?)

So, to start my personal challenge off I decided to go to my favorite websites and blogs for some inspiration! Since the Mid Week Mojo contest is due tonight I figured I should start there.  And when I saw Jenn's sketch I knew EXACTLY what pictures to use in my stash. These pictures are 3 of about 10 of the same type... they just CRACK me up because taking pictures of these two cousins (17 mths and 33 mths) is impossible.  So, this layout just kick started my mojo!!  If I have time I might try Pearl 4B tonight but nothing is coming to mind at the moment. Here's the sketch:

So thanks to the Jenn and the folks at to get me going again... and here's to a great 30 days!!

Materials used are Bo Bonny Gabrielle Fairest (background), Crate Paper Restoration: Doilies, Michaels 'Say Cheese', American Crafts Thickers, DCWV White chipboard letters and Whisper White Stampin Up Paper.

Stay tuned for tomorrow!!! I am so motivated - I wish I could do this all day!!


  1. Okay, so far Day 1 is a go! I cut a bunch of hexagons with my Big Shot and chose papers so I am ready for the first layout of this 30 day challenge :) Love your layout!

  2. I'm jealous. Do you know that I just finished a week's vacation and didn't do one darn scrappy thing during my week off. What a piss off...grrrr. I seem to get more done when I'm working ...go figure. I'll be cheering you on Cathy! :)
