Finally Moved In!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally got moved in, YAY! I hate moving, but who doesn't right? It is especially hard when you will be living in one room. I had to put my scraproom in my bedroom, which is pretty small, note how close the bed is to my table. This is my mom's sewing table, that I am now using since she had to move all her sewing stuff out-thanks mom!

Since I am moved and set up, I got to catch up on some challenges I have been wanting to do. This one was for Use Your Stash. The challenge was to use stamps on a layout, and make a card. I wanted to use these BG scraps I had, and these pictures of my neice were the right color, and so much fun! I scribbled over her name in photoshop, that is pretty much all I know how to do! lol I used Technique Tuesday "Two Steppin' In The Garden" stamps, and some Autumn Leaves for the flourishes. I used Stickles over it for a little punch.

This is the card I made for the same challenge, same BG line, Phresh & Phunky. I used Studio G stamps for the greeting. I made 2 of these, for a couple AMR buddies who won a challenge I did on there. I used Stickles again!

This was done for a challenge over at To The Starres And Back... The challenge was to use at least 9 blocks, I used the grid method with 12 blocks. We were to use at least 2 printed papers, I used 4 from Scribble Scrabble. We were to use multiple photos, I used 5 and put them in a grid pattern as well. We were supposed to also use 4 stickers. This was difficult, as I just packed up all my stickers since I don't ever use them, I borrowed from tigardlilly. We were also supposed to have handwriting and stiching. The stiched "splash" just sort of happened, I used multiple flourishes from Bazzill's In Stiches templates. I love how it turned out. What, no Stickles??? I guess I don't use them on everything! This was the first whale I ever saw, and I saw it at the Sea Lion Caves on the central/southern Oregon Coast. It was a gray whale, and it was awesome!!

This Challenge is for a new challenge blog, The Story Matters. The challenge was to do a page about you, anything you want. I chose to do the page about me and accepting myself, as well as the horrible pictures of myself. CS is DCWV, PP is October Afternoon, Detours. Chipboard Frame is Scenic Route, which I covered in Bazzill, inked and Stamped with Technique Tuesday stamps and Stickled. Journaling stickers are Scenic Route, ribbon is Scrapworks and MM, arrow is Grungeboard-inked and Stickled. MM noteworthy with TT stamps for "me". Circle is TT Technique Tiles, inked and stamped with TT. Flowers are unknown.

Over at AMR, there have been challenges while Stacey is gone at CHA, they are calling them "While The Cat's Away" Challenges.

Here is #1
The challenge was to use printed paper that is at least 6 months old, I used Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl. We were supposed to use at least 5 eyelets, fiber, and stickers (what is it with stickers, grr!). Sorry my pic is blurry, I haven't quite mastered the macro setting on my camera.

This was challenge #2

The challenge was to use the color orange, 3 buttons, chipboard and ribbon. Most of the supplies are self-explanatory, the chipboard is the pp covered birdie, and the flower, which I also stamped on. I Stickled the bird, and both flowers. The paper is Dream Street.


.

This is challenge #3

We were supposed to get a start on our Christmas cards, I only did one, for the challenge. I used printed paper scraps from a slab. I Stickled the dots on the tree, and again on the snowflakes. I also used some dyed skittles I got from Laura.

.

So, that is what I have been up to! There is so much catch up to do with blogs, challenges, message boards, etc. Now that I have the internet in my room now, I should be getting a lot more done and posted. Thanks for looking!
