3 Layouts, 4 Cards, & 16 ATCs

I didn't get very much done the last couple days at my 2-day scrapathon. There were lots of interuptions (aka shopping, procrastinating), then 2 of us got to feeling sick, so it ended early on Friday. I did manage to get 3 layouts done though!
AMR Wednesday Product Challenge-4/1: This had lots of requirements... The first was to use a paper kit. I used my BG Kit of the Month kit from January featuring Ambrosia. The paper is Ambrosia, the rub on is BG, but not from this line, the letters are Scarlett's Letter. The paper had to be layered, one piece had to be die cut or punched all the way around, inking/distressing was preferred, there had to be 2 trinkets (?) so I used some metal embellishments (unknown), then there had to be 5 beads or gems so I used some Kaiser Crafts pearls and some butterfly rhinestones. There was also supposed to be 9" ribbon or lace, so I used some MM ribbon. The journaling block is Jenni Bowlin, and I crumpled it up before adhering.
AMR Title Challenge-3/31: Use Techie Lingo to Represent this Era.
I used BG Granola pp, MM Paperie journal sheet, 2 kinds of American Crafts Thickers, and some silk and Prima flowers, with brads.
AMR Thursday Scraplift Challenge-4/2 I used SU Kiwi Kiss cs, SU Good Morning Sunshine pp, SU Kiwi Kiss ink on the scalloped circle which I ran through a crimper and inked over with some charcoal CB chalk ink (also all the edges), and I used Technique Tuesday alpha stamps with SU Pacific Point ink.
I got a thank you card from tigardlilly, for a card I gave her!
I got a couple cards from the AMR Easter Card Swap...
From Tigardlilly
From ScrappinmaryI got a card from Scrappy Girl...
Inside of it was THIS!!!! I am so glad I was paired up with her for the movie ATC swap!!! I feel kinda bad though, because she didn't make herself one!
I also got my Woodland Creature ATCs the other day! They are so cute!!
I signed up for 5 ATC swaps over at Split Coast Stampers, and am very excited to get started on them!!! I just can not get enough ATCs, lol!! I am off to get more work done and, of course, share that with you too! OH YEAH, my SU order from a couple weeks ago is on it's way to my house as I speak, can't wait for that!!! I think I will watch some more Twilight special features-tigardlilly got it for me, WOO HOO!!! Thanks girl!!

Don't feel bad...I made it especially for you! Love your layouts. I see you are feeding your need to swap on another site. Seems like everyone at AMR is swapped out...although I am very excited to get in on the stamped image trade...I bought a new stamp at expo that I did not include in the pics of my loot...why did I not include it?...cause I am going to make you are card with is hilarious!
