some new layouts

I have immersed myself lately in the Scrap-Off at My Scrapbook Nook. It has been so fun for me to just scrap for fun, to be inspired by the challenges and to stretch myself to do things I might not have normally done.

So, here are a few more layouts I've done this week. It's incredible that I've accomplished so much. I can't let myself fall behind, though, if I want to have a shot at winning...so, last night I was up until after 1 o'clock. Matt was working graveyard shift and once the kids settled down and went to sleep I decided I wanted some ME time and needed to get some challenges done.

This layout was for our Week #3 challenge. We had to do a layout where the journaling reflected deep emotion. I've wanted to do a page like this before...talking about infertility and the struggles Matt and I went through to be able to have kids. So, here it is. You can click on it to see better and read the journaling if you'd like. Paper is from Lily Bee and the flowers from Maya Road.
This layout was for Selena's sketch challenge featuring a sketch by Becky Fleck. We had to use the sketch and create a layout that told something about who we are, only we couldn't use things that were related to us being a mom, a wife, a sister, etc. So, I chose this..."I believe." Papers are from Scenic Route, journal spot from Jillibean Soup, also American Crafts Thickers and some bling swirlies. Oh, the butterfly is from Prima. I love those gorgeous butterflies.

And lastly, Delaina challenged us to create either a card with an animal made from buttons or a layout using more than 20 buttons, so I opted to do the layout and think I had something like 60 buttons on there, more than meeting the criteria :) The paper is from the new Scenic Route Garden Grove collection that I won as my prize for being a winner in the January Scenic Route product challenge. The Layton Street paper in the "I Believe" layout was from that prize as well. I love getting free scrapping supplies!!
I have some more fun things to add, new pics of Matt being "beautiful" and pics from Hailey's preschool graduation last night, so check back later on.
Happy scrapping!
