SS Ruby Challenges #2, 3 and 4!!!

Okay. I realize that I'm not listing ScrapbookSteals' Ruby Challenge #1. Technically, it's actually MWM #30.

33 layouts in 10 weeks??? Not bad!!! Here are my three additional challenges for Ruby Status!!! WOO HOO!!

SS'ers were supposed to share a little known fact about themselves. I shared 10. :)
Title: 10 Things About Me

Challenge #3: Lucky Me!
SS'ers were given the task of featuring something in our life that we were lucky to have.
Title: Lucky in Love

This was one difficult!! Here's the list. There was no right or wrong way to complete this... We just had to include these items. All of them.
10 metal embellishments: metal brads, 9 plain, 1 decorative
9 inches of ribbon: there are actually 9 inches of ribbon in the flower
8 letters in the title: isla sofi
7 non-metal embellishments: seven rhinestones
6 sentences in the journaling: this is obvious
5 pieces of patterned paper: there are five patterns in the woven section
4 pieces of plain paper: there are four pieces of plain in the woven section (I forgot to include the base paper... OOPS!)
3 photos: again, obvious... but in sepia tone!
2 rubons: both flourishes were technically from one rubon. I broke it into two.
1 stamped image: the dots underneath the photographs are actually a stamp!
Title: isla sofi

Scrapbook Storage and Rooms...

I, and quite a few of our fabulous ladies have been sharing our wonderful storage ideas and scrapbook rooms! I was mentioned in one of the blog posts!

Although I don't have a room, my area on the bookshelf is looking pretty good!!!

How To'sday Scrapbook Rooms #1 (this is the blog with my area!)

Enjoy the scrappiness!! Pin It

MWM #29 and Color Combos Galore!

Not often do I have the brilliant idea of mixing two challenges at once. I should, I don't have much time... Why not combine!!

So, after Brenda's fantastic sketch for's MWM (Mid-Week Mojo)... and then seeing the neat-o color combo's for Color Combo Galore...I knew that I wanted to use my new Meadowlark and State of the Heart MME papers!! Thanks for the fantastic prices once again!! I also used previously purchased SS for most of this, Ever After ribbon and grey Velvet ribbon from Cosmo Cricket (which I HAD to make an extra large glue dot to create the flower for!). The little sterling charms are Making Memories charms that I have been saving for, well... This layout! Brads are Basic Grey.

(The weird silver thing... The clipboard that is holding the page up so that I could photograph it...) Pin It
