Pink Stamper challenge #4: Mother's Day theme

 I made this page to celebrate my mother conquering breast cancer over the last year. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you!

Pink Stamper challenge #9: Glitz, Glam, Glitter

I made this page (with some jewels on the corners of the frame) to celebrate the photos that we miss or the photos that couldn't have happened for whatever reason. But the memories are still good ones. I captured just a few of those here:

Pink Stamper challenge #2: Use Kraft paper

I didn't used to like kraft paper, but once I started using it, I totally got it. Love the stuff! Here is another page in my family Christmas album using kraft paper:

Pink Stamper challenge #1: Cupcakes

Cupcakes are really popular lately. I decided to go with a covered journal for the cupcake theme challenge. I used the cupcake from the cricut cartridge Rock Princess, but cut off the arms and legs.  The background paper is DCWV and the journal is a composition book. I embossed the cupcake paper with a dots folder.

Pink Stamper challenge #12: Kid theme

I am getting caught up on my Christmas album and made this page for the kid theme challenge. I know this isn't a very fun, bright childish page, but it is about snow and kids. What's more kid than that?  I used Tim Holtz paper and just collaged on top of it. I love pics of my kiddos in the snow:

Love/Hate relationship with Laundry

I combined a couple challenges into making this page yesterday for (Inter)national Scrapbook Day. I wanted to do so much more, but life got in the way. So, here is the layout I made:

So, for the My Pink Stamper challenges, I made a scrapbook page (challenge #7). For the Big Picture Classes challenge, I took a detail pic of one the the things that prevented me from participating more....laundry. I had to get it done so my kids would have church clothes.  As a personal challenge, I made an 8x8 page. I have only ever made 12x12 pages, except for theme and mini albums.  (Oops...I just noticed the mistake I made in my red journaling and fixed it.)
