Only while digital scrapping..

Only while digital scrapping can I:
- Eat cookie dough.
(Without a spoon.)
-Hold Peyton on my lap as she falls asleep to thunder and lightening.
-Leave it alone, to read, play, or get a snack, without worrying about someone getting into the glue dots, or adding their own “journaling” to my layout.
-Click “undo” too many times to count, and not feel bad about it one bit!

Today’s Spraground challenge was to use only these colors.
(Why could I only think of food..  hot dogs, namely?)
And only one font for the title, but in different sizes.  You could use a second font for journaling, if desired.

Pretty Girl.

pretty girl copy
I loved these pictures!!
This girl is my best little model lately.
(It also helps that I have started using a rad method of bribery.)
I made the background paper.  The button, and letter “a” are made with paper from Crystal’s {Funky Fresh} collection.  The label is from her “Artisan Labels”.  The staple is from November “eye candy”.  The green scalloped border is from the “Doodley-Doo” borders.
I used stitching from Brittish Designs.
Fonts are: Pharmacy, Helterskelter, and Pea Matt & Kari.

Days 3 & 4..

I have been having some fun when I can..
Here’s yesterday’s.  We had to use a certain color pallet + one photo.

Today we were challenged to use the word “life” and use it in our title with it being in one sentence and that sentence would have to be our definition of what life is.  We could use whatever supplies we wanted, how many pictures we wanted, just minimal text.
life.. copy
I like how these challenges stretch me and make me think of ways to scrap that I normally wouldn’t.

I am dreaming of it..  are you too?
This new line (making it’s debut today) from Crystal Wilkerson has me living in a world all my own, and it’s already summertime there!
All of her goodies can be found at Jessica Sprague, and this particular line has papers, elements, and some fun labels.
Just to give you a taste….
