Scrap Bucket Challenge

I participated in a Scrap Bucket Challenge not too long ago on a scrappin member board. It was copied from Ice Bucket Challenge that was going around on Facebook except people would give you 5 different things you would have to put on your layout. I guess its like a recipe challenge.

I do not make 2 pagers very often but that was one of the things I had to do for the layout so I was able to get more than just 1 layout done. Once again, it is a wedding layout. I feel like I will never get this wedding album done. My cousin probably thinks I forgot all about it.

I had a horrible time trying to take straight pictures of the 2 layouts together. My layouts are not really that crooked.

I had a sketch to use from Pinterest for this layout. My 5 things to use were a 2 pager, 1 word title, stamp, use the color orange & at least 5 buttons. I stamped at the bottom of the page & glued the buttons on top of the image after I tied the string to them.

Cat in the Hat

The challenge over at Child's Play Challenges this time is inspired by the book Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss.

I remember my son had one of those tall hats but I could not find a photo of it. As I was looking through photos, I came across quite a few with my son wearing hats. I chose these photos because he was wearing a red, white & blue baseball outfit with a hat. This matches the colors on the front cover of the Cat in the Hat book.

                                                Here is a closeup of the title

I took a small paintbrush & painted modeling paste onto a star stamp. I stamped one on each side of the title. I also used a banner stamp for my sons name, cut each letter out & glued  them to the twine. I used Barn Door & Faded Jeans distress ink on the resist paper that I used for a mat.

Here we are in the month of September already. Hopefully the warm weather will stick around for a little while yet. We have one more motorcycle run to go on yet. I just hate to bundle up when riding on the motorcycle.

Sequins are the craft challenge at Child's Play this time. I cant believe with all the bling that I have, I did not have any sequins in my stash. I was able to make a trip to Hobby Lobby & pick some out. With so many colors & shapes, it took me a while to decide what I wanted. I figured I would go with a different shape than just the circle sequins. I dont have a lot of leaves in my stash to go with the wonderful assortment of flowers that I have so thats what I decided to get.

I used the We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Punch for the background paper of the photos. The banner & striped flower were from an online swap from some scrapbooking friends. The other 2 flowers are from Prima & I used Cranberry stickles on one of them. Then I added the gem swirl to fill in some space on the bottom. I tucked in the sequin leaves where I thought they looked good.

I hope to see some pretty layouts with the sequins this month. Come join us at Child's Play Challenges & get inspired.

Happy Scrappin!
