Hello, scrappy friends! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. We got our first taste of winter this weekend with cold temperatures. We went from almost 80 degrees on Thursday to about 40 degrees on Friday. Ugh! I don't think I'm ready for that cold of weather just yet!
It will soon be November and we have a new theme and a new set of challenges for you today. DT Tina is providing our challenges this month and I think you're going to like them!
Our theme for November is - Scrapbook Cooking Time - having fun creating with some scrapbook recipes - and our first challenge is:
LM #368 - create a layout using 3 patterned papers, background stamping, a punched shape, puffy stickers, and your handwriting.
We have two fantastic guest designers joining us in November! Please help us welcome Alicia and Karrie!
Hi, I am Alicia O'Bryant, a mother, and wife who also works full time as an office manager. I am also mom to two fur babies. I have been crafty since childhood. I owned a jewelry crafting business for over 20 years and have been paper crafting for almost as long. I enjoy the city of life of Cincinnati, Ohio where I have lived for 20 years. I love to scrapbook as well as create cards and mixed media projects. I am currently working on my wedding album from 2013.
Here is Alicia's beautiful layout for this week's challenge:
Next, we have November GDT - Karrie
Hi, I’m Karrie, I live in Ontario, Canada, and am a full-time receptionist. My hubby and I enjoy traveling, motorbikes, camping/boating, and I play beach and indoor volleyball.
I started scrapping in 2001, and am lucky enough to have a space packed tight with goodies and freedom to create almost every weekend! I am so happy and honored to be chosen as a GD at Lasting Memories!
Here is Karrie's beautiful layout for this week's challenge:
I used only the recipe, just adding a few droplets of ink.
Here is a look at what the rest of the design team has created:
3 pattern papers, stamping: part of the title and the little notebook page, stars are the punched shape, Heidi Swapp puffy stickers, and my own handwriting:) a fun recipe for the layout.
