I am stepping out of my safety spot on this layout. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. The cake is to celebrate the new store opening and the store managers birthday. I again got the sketch from Sketch Savvy. I love her stuff. To make it more interesting I found a challenge that you have to use stuff from your stash that is at least 2 years old. It was listed on Disney Scrappers. Even though I didn't scrap Disney I still used the challenge.

Paper: DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack
Letters: came from a  scrapbook accessory kit I got at Tuesday Morning about 3 years ago
Chip Board Flowers and Circles: I also got them in a glitter and foil embellishment kit from Tuesday Morning about 3-4 years ago.

This layout qualifies for:
Polka Doodles: Flowers

End of summer

The challenge this week at Lasting Memories layout challenges is summers end. This year my summer has ended with the opening of a new store in Charlotte. I was able to get my hands on some pictures of the store before the product was brought in. It will NEVER be this neat and tidy again. I was able to use a sketch from Sketch Savvy. If you have never been there you should definitely check it out. One of my go to sites when I hit a wall.

This layout also qualifies for:
Clear It Out Challenges: inspiration (create a project based on something that inspires you-a card, a person, a place, anything)- My inspiration was work (I work at Michael's, how can I not be inspired?)
ColourQ: Crumb Cake, Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, White

1st mixed media layout

After going to the CKC scrapbook convention last weekend, I have been inspired to try a mixed media layout. I really like how it came out. However, not exactly a layout I can use for my boys ;)

The paper is by K & Company
everything else I either made or it was in my scrap bins so I dont really know who or what it is.

This layout qualifies for:
Craft Punk: Flowers
Frosted Design: Ribbon (Layout has lace, flowers cut from ribbon and a flower made from ribbon)
Ruby's Rainbow Challenges: use butterflies
