What am I doin’? (and a freebie!)

Hi everyone!! It’s been awhile since I showed you some LO’s so thought I’d post some today. I’ve been scrapping up a storm since joining ADSR Season 5.  It’s a blast, if you have never participated in it, give it a try next year, you’ll have a ton of fun and get awesome prizes!! 

This was our first challenge…..we had to journal about our race partner:


That’s Emilee!! We met on the ScrapMatters CT and we were both looking for someone to race with…..she rocks!

Our second challenge was based on 5, we had to journal “5 things I love about…”, 5 pics, 5 of one type of element, 5 alphas/fonts and one of our pics had to have the number 5 in it.


Our third challenge was to use a pic with selective colouring:

And we just completed our fourth challenge, we had to make ATC cards, one about something we love, one about our race partner.  I had never tried these before but they were actually a lot of fun to make.



There was so much drama over this challenge, people hating ATC, people mad at the people that hated ATC…..LOL It was kind of funny really. I was stressed just reading it all but once I tried them it was not bad at all. They are just like mini layouts….the trend is to do them altered art style but that isn’t a requirement.

I have totally fallen off the P365 wagon……I keep forgetting to take daily pics, I think I remember about half of the time, LOL. I am going to have to rethink this project….maybe P52?

I hosted my first Saturday Special Challenge at ScrapMatters yesterday!! You can check it out here.  The challenge was to journal on a path, I had a blast making the tutorial for it…….try it out, I would to see what you come up with! Here is the page I finished for it:


I also got time to go to a speed scrap this week!! woo hoo!! Here is my finished page:


I love the chat in a speed scrap, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with what everyone is typing but it’s definitely entertaining.

I have also been glued to my TV screen this week, watching the Olympics. My kids are seriously obsessed. My ds even has been appointed the speed skating reporter at his school. He’s taking it very seriously, carrying around a clipboard with all the stats and looking very official! I did up a LO to commemorate my little fanatical kiddos:

Those stitches are a new release from Chelle’s Creations this week….I just love them!!

I even had time to scrap a pic of the Valentines cards I got from the three loves of my life….


How’s that for a week of scrapping goodness? My bum is permanently fixed to my computer chair now but it’s been fun!! LOL

Now how about a freebie for you? I made a template based on this layout:
