Challenge Spotlight February 11

Happy Tuesday! We are a few days away from Valentines/Single Awareness Day? Any special plans for the night? Valentines Day is not big at our house since our wedding anniversary is two days later. Somehow I always end up with a card =). Today’s featured challenge is the Mix It Up Challenge. I love this Challenge since it is never the same twice. This month it is hosted by Sherry Ferguson! She has challenged us to make a page about the ones we love using song lyrics. This challenge is perfect for a LO about the special people/pets in our lives.

Remember we have a new Challenge System in place! Complete 10 challenges and get an awesome collab from out wonderful designers! Each month there is a different kit! Here is February’s:

Challenge Spotlight- December 17

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe we only have 8 days until Christmas! Plus we only have 15 days until the New Year! Where has the time gone! With the holidays in full swing, is everyone ready? I feel quite accomplished this year! I only have a couple more gifts to buy and I am done! Even though everything is busy, there are times to chill out and scrap! There’s 2 weeks left to get some challenges done! That means two more weeks to make some layouts and earn some great rewards for the new year!

This week’s Challenge you should consider is the Mini Kit Challenge! This month is it hosted by Jennifer of  Little Rad Trio and she has a great mini kit to use to make a Layout! You get a free kit to use! What a sweet deal!

Isn’t it beautiful! I always love this challenge and the kits our fabulous designers make specifically for this challenge! Here are a few of the submissions that stood out!

I usually only choose 3 but I had to choose 4 this time! This kit has been used for many awesome layouts! And there’s still two weeks left to make a layout with your pics!

I love the two toned photo here!

I love the simplicity of this one and the small cluster on the picture!

This one spoke to me since I spent most of my winters like this being a Floridian.

I love the clusters and the idea behind this photo!


I hope these Layouts have inspired you as much as they have me! I know the next challenge I will be completing! Remember in order to get our wonderful rewards, you must complete a tracking thread! Happy Scrapping Ladies!

Challenge Spotlight December 10th

Happy Tuesday Ladies! I hope your weekend was as great as mine! My football team is going to the National Championships! (GO NOLES!) and my son didn’t cry too much when we went to see Santa! I also made quite a few layouts! Today I am spotlighting the Font Challenge which Love Ewe Designs is hosting this month. She found an awesome font to use in a layout.

I am seriously in love with the font “Are You Freakin’ Serious?” I think it might be my new favorite! This is a hand written font. But it is much better than my own sloppy handwriting which is why I love to use them! This font is so versatile! It will be so easy to use this font for any layout that is on your list to make! And making a layout for the challenge puts you one step closer to earning our great monthly rewards!

There are so many wonderful layouts already made for this challenge, it was hard for me to pick three! But here is a little inspiration for you!

I just love the facial expressions!


Isn’t the quilting awesome!



I am a sucker for big photo masked pictures! If you like these layouts, click on them to leave their creator’s some love =).

Remember to fill out a post in our tracking thread if you are playing along with the challenges this month! I am trying to do a couple of challenges I don’t normally do this month. There’s still tons of time to complete challenges. Hope everyone has a week filled with fun, family and scrapping!
