Chopped Week 2

Last week no one was Chopped in Week 1 over at Challenge Masters! Here is my take on Week 2, you had to use Scallops, Color Yellow and Dimensional Flowers!
I used Echo Park "a Walk in the Park" yellow paper "Sunshine" with scalloped detail inside the edges, American Crafts Premium Scalloped Ribbon, Martha Stewart Doiley Scalloped Punch, yellow Crystal Glitter Dome "pearls", Yellow and Fucchia Bazzil CS, American Craft wooden swirls, Misc Petaloo Floral Embellies, and misc bling..

Guest Designer at The Paper Variety this week!!!

I was honored to be this week's Guest Designer at The Paper Variety! They have a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge this week, be sure to check it out!
Here is my sample! Since I am BEHIND on Isabella's layouts, I used the LAYOUT-BAY THEME-2+ FLOWERS row! I couldn't decide which picture to use, since I had too bright of a light, so I posted both!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chopped Week 1 at Challenge Masters!!

The first Chopped Challenge is due at midnight tomorrow, but here is my layout!
I used paint for the chipboard embellies, such as a circle, heart, star and swirl. I painted them with MME scrapbook paint, then I went with Crackle Paint over them to give them the Crackled Look. I also used paint around the edges, instead of INKING... I cut several circles with the Cricut and used different shapes. I used glossy accents for the painted arrow, and I also embossed some of the circles with a circle folder of the Cuttlebug...

3 more Projects!

This weekend Isabella took a nice long 2.5 hour nap, so I was able to scrap again! Whoo hoo.. I made 2 layouts for Challenge Masters, 1 for Day in the Life Challenge which was to use a picture of laughter, what better to show this photo of Marc and Isabella on Valentine's Day having fun with the Helium Balloon! She was sick, so this was a fabulous thing to capture....I used Bo Bunny "A Gift of Love" Line...

I also altered a frame I got from my Mother in Law.. I added embellies to it, and a cute picture of Isabella.. 

and lastly I worked on the BladeMaster Challenge, and used my CRICUT! YES, I DID!!! After MONTHS of not touching my Expressions.. I used the Storybook Cartridge, and cut out 6 Months! I used American Crafts Hello Sunshine Line! I also used white paint!
