Monday Challenges

I have tons to share this time, but today I am just gonna share some challenges from Scrapbook Challenges! There are 3 new additions to the Design Team, and there are going to be some challenge changes starting in May! I am very excited and look forward to another term of being on this team! I am just gonna get straight to business...
I used Bazzill cs, Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine pp, Cuttlebug Flower dies, Stickles, and Technique Tuesday alphabet stamps.
I used Bazzill cs, SU Good Morning Sunshine pp, Thickers, and a silk flower with a brad for the center (compliments of tigardlilly as a birthday present decoration).
I tried a different technique for making my own shaped paper-free hand cutting. I am not liking how this particular design worked out, but it will have to do. First I cut the green which I liked. Then I mounted it all on the pink DCWV cs, started embellishing, and forgot about the actual challenge, so I cut the square paper to match the green. The pp is Scenic Route Sonoma, then there are some Thickers, and a tag I got as a RAK.
Black And White
The challenge was to use a B&W photo or all B&W paper/embellies. I don't have any B&W photos, so I went with everything else B&W! I used DCWV cs, Black Market Paper Society pp, Bo Bunny ribbon, Thickers, Bazzill flowers, 7-Gypsies stamp, a brad, and dotted the edge with my white Signo pen.
Hand Made Flowers
I used the last of my Prima pp scraps to make these flowers, then some Bazzill cs, Dream Street pp (x2), Pink Paislee pp, Sassafras Lass pp, Thickers, and some buttons.
Scrap The Not So Great
So, what is not so great about this photo? Just look at it! Not to mention the dump the motel was, lol! I used DCWV (I think) glitter cs, Scenic Route letters, Bazzill flower, a button, Prima flowers, and some Kaiser Craft pearls.
Alter This
So, what do I alter? I am never very good at this stuff, plus I don't have a lot of alterable things around, but I did find these coasters I got at the dollar store a while back and they have just been sitting in my drawer.
Rather than making the typical mini book with them, I made a wall hanging for my mom for Mother's Day. I used Cloud 9 pp, some ribbon, and some Prima flowers with more pearls.
Tomorrow, I will share some ATCs I have made, and some swaps I got back, and a card from a special friend!!
