Doing a little creating lately

This week there is a fun crop going on at Noel Mignon.  I've been playing along with some challenges.  Wanna see what I made?

This challenge was just to scrapbook something about yourself - kind of an All About Me sort of thing.  So, here it is:

I wanted to document my peppiness tendencies.  I love preppy things, but rarely pull off the total preppy package!

This challenge was to document our summer and use at least 6 pictures.  I printed out pictures from our trip to the beach!

And then this was a challenge to make your own flowers - I did three different flowers made three different ways - one I got from the fabulous Virginia Tillery.  She made flowers from masking tape so I gave it a try.  The other two are just made from shapes I cut out - leaves using me Slice and the circles using my punches.

This challenge was all about color - the colors that were suggested were muted greens, oranges, creams, yellow - no yellow here, but creams, greens, oranges and a dull black.  I made the one above and the one below to hang in our window when we go to Disney in October.

Lots of Mickey heads there and a few more flowers.  The top one I made from punching four Mickey heads out of paper and layering them so the ears looked like petals.

And lastly - this was a sketch challenge.  I printed out the pictures I took this morning of Cole.  Today was the first day of school!!

I've had a great time creating again.  It's been a while.  It was fun to just dig through supplies and pull things together.  I'm cleaning out and getting ready for a yard sale at The Scrapbook Princess so it's a bit easier to find things now!

Thanks for looking -

I know there is nothing more rewarding than to create the cutest page with all the neat supplies we spend our hard earned cash on. But.. have you ever heard of Heritage Makers? I went to a party recently and I fell in love!!! Here is a link you may want to check out.

I would give my left foot to do it but my money situation right now is not moveable. I have a close family member helping me control my money, I don't even have access to it. It's really hard I have to say, but worth it because the things get paid that need paid. LOL
