09/16/13 - My Scrappy Weekend (9/14-9/15)

Happy Monday Bloggy Friends!
I was able to scrap this weekend and I made 4 layouts!
They were all for challenges: 4 were challenges and 1 was for a challenge and 2 blog challenges.
Here they are along w/ the challenge information:
#1 Scraplift Challenge.  This is the layout I lifted:

 "Sleeping With The Enemy"
Journaling: "When these 2 are awake they hate each what a funny sight to see them
sleeping together! We found them like this when we woke up. July 7, 2013
#2 "Four Categories" challenge: Category #4 - "School Themed" layout.
Includes the twist of using an apple on the layout.
"Jr Year"
(This one feels a bit unfinished though. I may go back and add a little something to it)
#3 "Four Categories" challenge: Category 3 - "Technique Challenge".
The challenge was to create your own handmade embellishment: I made the banner
under the picture out of twine, punched PP, and buttons. Also incudes the twist of using a
past "Four Categories" challenge technique: I chose misting.
 "Grade 4"
a) "Music Challenge" - Category #1: Use song lyrics on your layout.
I used lyrics to "Wild Thing"...which is kinda a joke because my husband rarely
drinks, so calling him a "wild thing" is me being silly. But he DOES make
my heart sing!
b)"Scrap Your Stash" blog Sketch Challenge including the mandatory twist of chipboard:
The heart piece is chipboard (along w/ stashed items: I have 5 items on here that were in my stash)
c) "Scrap Africa" blog challenge: use washi tape and twine. Washi tape runs vertical along
my pictures and the twine is wrapped around my photogram frame.
"You Make My Heart Sing"

I'm tired after writing all that! LOL!
But I feel very productive!
Hope you had a productive weekend as well!
Thanks for stopping by!
