As If The Weekend Wasn't Enough...

...I got lots more scrappin' done today! I have been on a roll, but now I don't have any more challenges to work on! I guess that means it is time to get to work on more ATCs!!
AMR Weekly Card Challenge, Butterfly groupings.
I used Bazzill cs, October Afternoon pp, Studio G stamp, Technique Tuesday stamp, some other butterfly stamps/sentiment (I don't remember what they are called), and Kaiser Crafts pearls.
This was the Color Challenge for May at AMR. Use shades of blue, deep brown and cream.
I used all Basic Grey Granola pp-perfect for this color scheme, Thickers, Around the Block paper scrap, and some buttons.
I used Bazzill cs, Cosmo Cricket Snorkel pp, and Thickers.
Here is one of the art pieces to inspire us. I went with the bright colors, square layout and circles in the squares.
SC True Colors Challenge, using a color, a B&W, and a sepia photo.
I used Bazzill cs, Sassafras Lass pp, Cosmo Cricket rubons, Imaginisce rubons/pearls, Prima and silk flowers, Kaiser Crafts pearls, and some Thickers
SC Hide and Seek Challenge, use hidden journaling.
I used DCWV cs, Cricut pp and cs, Magic Mesh, silk flowers, SEI brads, bulk brads, ribbon scrap, Thickers, and MM itty bitty letters.
And of course the hidden journaling.
SC Butterfly Challenge, also had to have at least one flower.
I used all Basic Grey Sultry pp, letters, brads, and chipboard. The flowers are Cuttlebug scallop circles and the butterflies are Cuttlekids Fairy Tale Alphabet.
SC Photoshop Challenge, Burn The Edge. She gave us a tutorial on how to burn edges, then we can make a layout with the new photo and get an extra entry into the monthly drawing! Here is the orignal photo.
And here is the layout I did. I used Pink Paislee Vintage Moon and Fetching pp, Thickers (the 2nd E, R and S are creating using other letters), dyed "skittles, Story of Us chipboard buttons, and an unknown frame.
The sponsor this month over at Scrapbook Challenges is Studio Calico, and they have generously given us 2 different add-on kits from thier awesome monthly kits! Remember, you get an entry into the drawing for every sketch or challenge you complete (current for the month). Starting this month, we are adding 3 new challenges as well, a Photoshop challenge, a digi challenge, and a technique challenge (posted by me)! If you enjoy challenges, you really gotta check it out!!
So, AMR decided to stop doing the weekly royal challenges, and are going to be on a monthly basis from now on. Since they are no longer doing them, they went ahead and crowned thier Queens of each challenge category (which I didn't get, I only won 3). Apparently, there is a Queen honor for the person who completes the most challenges-I found out today that I am THE QUEEN OF CROP!! How cool is that?!
So that is all I have for today! There probably isn't going to be much to blog about, since there are no more challenges and I will be busy with ATCs. I will share those as I complete them though, you can count on it! Thanks for stoppin' by!

Way to go, Queen of Crop! Hey, once I get my household completely healthy, I'd like to have everyone over for a scrappin' night or day sometime. Are you up for it?
