Challenge 16 - Stamps

Today's challenge is to use your stamps. Now not just any stamps will do for this challenge, no I want you to get out those stamps that you haven't used yet. I know I have a lot that I have bought and still haven't used. I can't be the only. Try and use at least 3 "new" stamps. They don't have to be on the same layout.

Challenge 15 - Clean Up

I don't know about you, but as much as I try to clean up after each layout I still have a mess at my desk. Today's challenge is to clean up your work space. If you scrap at the kitchen table, or have a nice office space, I want you to clean it up today. I plan on clearing off my desk (putting items away), dust, and vacuum. After I'm hoping my scrapbook mojo will flow. LOL

Challenge 12 - Family

I come from a big family, and when I say big I mean more than 4. I'm the oldest of 9. My parents will be celebrating 40 years this September. Coming from a big family I couldn't wait for a nice calm house, until I started my own family. My husband and I wished for a medium sized family with 4 kids, but that wasn't in the works for me. We only have 2 kids. A girl and a boy. I'm still waiting for a nice calm house. LOL nahh life wouldn't be any fun if it got calm.  Anyway the reason why I'm talking a little bit about my family is because lots of families in Oklahoma had their life and families changed because of the terrible tornado storms.  So in light of the horrible tragedy my challenge to you today is to do a layout of your family. Big, small, a memorable event, anything you want.

Challenge 9 - Pattern Paper

If you're like me using more than 2 kinds of pattern paper on  a layout and my head starts spinning. With today's challenge I want you to use 5 yes FIVE different kinds of pattern paper. Here's what I came up with. I used 6 different pattens but stayed in the blue and brown family so it doesn't scream at you.

Challenge 7

How did you do with yesterday's challenge. I'm still up in the air, no pun intended. But seriously, I'm thinking Buzz Lightyear but we'll see.
Today's Tool Challenge is to use a page kit. I have mine ready to go. Pictures to follow.

It felt so good to scrap yesterday. The best part was how easy it was. I wanted to scrap tons of pictures of my son at his first time trying out archery. Needless to say putting 9 4x6's on a layout  was not going to happen. I love how this kit had me cut down the pictures to 3x3 to focus on my son, which is the goal in the first place. I used Scrapbook Generation's Boy Crazy page kit. Go check them out everything I needed was in the kit along with a sketch and photo of the completed layout, tons of paper and embellishments.

It is Space Oddity. It is a  revised version of David Bowie's Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.

Challenge 5

I've been so bad about doing my own challenges, luckily I am going to a crop tomorrow night so I can get these done. I was thinking that Friday's can be Color Friday. It will be either 1 or up to 3 colors that I want you to focus on. So today's challenge is yellow. Use yellow any way you like. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Challenge 4

Today we are going to hit that shopping bag that has just been sitting there with the goodies we needed to get but haven't used them yet. I know I have a few bags, packed with little goodies that I just couldn't pass up but haven't used them yet.  I'm thinking this is going to be a monthly challenge if not a weekly challenge. If you are good and unpack after a shopping trip then I want you to use something still in its packaging. Maybe that's what we'll call Thursday New To Me Thursday.

My 1st post

Hello out there.....
I don't know about you but I've been in a scrapbooking rut. So to get me out of the this funk I've created this Layout A Day Blog. My goal here is to post a challenge everyday. YIKES! And then make a scrapbooking page. DOUBLE YIKES!! I am open to all suggestions the more the merrier. I'm not affiliated with a scrapbooking company but I want to give out prizes to those of you that come along for the challenge.

Well as they say there's no time like the present so let's get started with the 1st challenge. I'm thinking Monday's should be Music Monday so I want you to use  Here I Am By Bryan Adams as your inspiration.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Here's what I did. One of the lines is Nowhere else on Earth I'd rather be. This layout is of my kids and I at the end of a summer day in 2005.  Yeah I'm a "little" behind. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.
