More Layouts & A Brief Pause

I have just been scrappin' away lately, and am totally loving it! Whether I am scrapping for fun, for challenges, or for DT stuff, I have a blast! I am so glad I found this hobby, it is so therapeutic for me! It may actually be more of an obsession, but I don't really care. I do have to say, that scrapbooking is an expensive hobby, and in our current financial situation, it makes things even harder! I am down to having to use glue sticks, and I hate it! Oh well, it is better to be responsible right? Good thing I have so much stuff in my stash, but you might be seeing a lot of stuff used over and over again, as time goes on. I am still amazed sometimes when I think about how much time I spend scrapping, lol!!
Here is my total scrapbook production count for January. I did...
45 layouts, all 12x12
37 cards (20 are for Vday)
119 ATCs (6 swaps)
4 altered items
This is Sketch 128 at SBC:
I used Bazzill cs, Cloud Nine pp, Bazzill Just The Edge which I inked, Thickers, my blender pen for outlining, and Kitchen Sink Stamps-this month's sponsor at SBC.
A challenge at SBC this week, Use Fabric:
I used Crate Paper pp, a piece of fabric that was on the top of a brownie mix jar my Mom got for Christmas, stripped Target Dollar Spot chipboard letters, K & Co Blue Awning rub ons, Prima flowers, misc flower, misc buttons, MM Noteworthy journal sheet, and Tim Holtz ticket.
Another challenge at SBC, Create A Cluster:
I used Stampin' Up textured cs, October Afternoon pp, Crate Paper pp, and We R Memory Keepers pp, Thickers (the L is pieced together), Cosmo Cricket rubons, Scrapworks chipboard flowers, Bazzill chipboard swirl (inked and Stickled), Heidi Swapp (I think) ghost heart (inked with alcohol ink), Prima and misc flowers, Kaiser Crafts rubon and pearls.
This is an AMR challenge, Friday Team Challenge-Life is____ When ____:
I used my Basic Grey kit I bought from AMR (a monthly kit straight from BG). This is from the February kit, featuring Bittersweet. All the pp, buttons, ribbon, chipboard letters are from the kit. I added some CB die cut hearts, and Technique Tuesday Wayfarer stamps.
This is the newest card Challenge at AMR-Paper Piecing:
I used Bazzill cs, Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo pp, Stampin' Up Sock Monkey stamps, Stampin' Up Ticket Punch, Inkadinkado birthday stamp, misc buttons, and Bazzill ribbon. The paper piecing was to be done using a stamp used multiple times on different patterned papers.
AMR's Monday Color Challenge-White Background and White Space:
I used Bazzill cs, BG Euphoria pp, stickers, and letters-kinda went a little sticker crazy, lol!
AMR's Tuesday Font/Title Challenge-One Word, Non-Noun Title:
I used January's BG kit from AMR featuring Ambrosia. Everything on this page is from that kit.
I got this RAK the other day, but wasn't home to post it or blog. This is from Scrappin{jewelz} from AMR. I won one of her challenges at the anniversary crop. Thank you so much Julie, I love it!
I sent out the prize for my crop challenge, and received this card in return, thanks Tiffanybrat!
I won a couple challenges at AMR so far. I won the Friday Team Challenge from 1/23, Team Mascot. It is a random challenge, so it doesn't count toward the Royal Challenge (Winners, aka princesses, will be chosen each week for the M-Th challenges by the Challenge team. The layout will be judged based on how you nail the challenge. You will be crowned princess for that week. The person crowned princess most weeks in the year for each of the four challenges will be crowned QUEEN of that challenge at next year’s anniversary crop! We will end up with 4 queens!). BUT the Font/Title challenge from 1/27 , Hand Write Part Of Title, does go toward the Royal challenge! I am just waiting to receive my blinkie!! See both the layouts here!
That is all I have to share for now, but I will have more after the weekend. I am going to Kay's house today, to help her out with some scrappy things, and won't be home till Sunday evening. We will be cropping some too, so there is bound to be something to share, lol! Look for a new blog post on Monday, maybe Tuesday so I can share the newest SBC stuff!

I am working on my layout for "Life is...when..." I am doing Life is rough when you're getting a haircut. It is the 2 little ones getting their haircut...they cry every time.

I love the sock monkey card! I just received the valentine from Tigardlilly and it had the same little guy on it. I also got yours last week. I am sending out mine tomorrow. I love Valentines! It is fun to get these in the mail!

Have fun scrapping this weekend. I am going out of town with Dr. Hubby again...ahhh...3 more days of sitting on my BUTT (and a little shopping).

I sent out Cliff's prize Tuesday. I put a Nascar car in there...I figure if he likes him then GREAT...if not he can fix it on a page looking like he is losing or wrecked...LOL!
