What a Weekend!!

Hi there all.  Well, I don't have any CT pages to show you today.  We got a little break this week from Scraps of Ellay as she is involved in a blog train with the Stuff to Scrap girls.  I was going to do a layout with her part but ran out of time (you will see why in a minute).  It is an amazing Mother's Day themed train and there are mini-kits as well as word art and quick pages!  If you want to check it out, head over to Lori's blog here and you can find her part, as well as links to all the other girls'!

Now, this Saturday was National Scrapbook Day and there were festivities all around scrapland!  There was a lot of scrapping and chatting and game playing going on.  Thanks to my absolutely wonderful husband, I got to take part in SO MUCH of this!  I will now regale you with the layouts from this weekend.

First off, on Saturday I did not one, not two, not even three but FOUR speed scraps (7 instructions, 1 hour, 1 great layout)!  I even did two of them back to back Saturday night!  It was crazy.  Here are the layouts from those speed scraps.

First, the Stuff to Scrap speed scrap layouts:
Kit used - My Life by Stolen Moments

Kit used - Boy Meets Girl by Scrappy Cocoa

Next the Digital Candy speed scrap layouts:
I was doing really well on this one until they told us to do a title with at least three different alphas.  That took me a LONG TIME to figure out and get it to look good!  I think it turned out OK, though.
Kit used - Fresh by Stolen Moments
Ribbon - Fresh by Digi-Designs by Nicole
Alphas - Purple Passion by Stacey Towers; My Friend's
Wedding by A Work in Progress; Plain Alpha by Flower Scraps

Kit used - That Jazz by Digi-Designs by Nicole

This one was for the You Only Live Twice challenge at Digital Candy.  She gave us half a kit, we did a layout with that and then earned the other half of the kit.
My Little Artist - Creations by Rachael

The first page here was for the Night at the Museum Challenge at Digital Candy.  You had to find one of your oldest kits that you had never used and use it.  I did it as a two page layout for a book I'm doing.  This may not have been my oldest kit, either but it was from around that time period and it worked!
Kit used - Summer 2008 by Joni Gray Designs
Alpha - Iron Alpha by Elegant Word Art by Bethany
Template - Template 62 by Yin Designs

This next one was for a Never Ending Story Challenge at Digital Candy.  We were given instructions several hours apart over Friday, Saturday and Sunday to create a layout.  I love this kind of challenge.

I did do one other layout but it's for a kit that comes out next week so I'm not going to show it to you until then!  My previous post also had some layouts from the Stuff to Scrap challenges.  It was a good weekend and I got a lot of scrapping done.  It's awesome because I'm getting much closer to finishing the book I'm working on.  then I can get it printed!  I love getting the pages printed because they also look so much better than I thought they would.  Anyway, I'd better go now!

Until next time...


  1. WOW!!! You were busy!! Good think there was a blog train! LOL! Your layouts are FANTASTIC! Great job!

  2. Beautiful pages Sandra! I love the little family one and the Family in Love ones best! I can hardly wait to see them in a book!

  3. I think you have now done more pages than I have done in the 4 years since I've started!! (Well, okay, maybe not if you include all my beginning stuff, but seriously....slow down!) :)
