Hey Peeps . . . I'm coming at you from my new scrap space bringing you not one but TWO CHALLENGES!! I love it when this happens! I created the layout below for this week's challenge to scrap a LANDMARK OF YOUR CITY at Studio 101. I scrapped my high school . . . the landmark is the dome . . . that giant white thing in my picture . . . everyone in the valley knows this shape! It's crazy! Then I created the above sketch for the below layout for the sketch challenge this week at Croppin' Paradise! It was so much fun! I love the ribbon bits and the misted stars! I matted the picture 3 times because they are the school colors .. . it would be great to see different patterns! Just have fun!
For the Studio 101 challenge, the team was asked to find two of the ugliest papers and create a layout with them! My two papers in their orginal form are shown in the first picture. My layout is the challenge for the CP team this week. Create a layout about your dreams (or someone else's dreams) using my dream as the title of your layout. I was inspired by a short article in the latest Vanity Fair magazine written by Michael Kors entitled "My Dream".
So it's been a crazy summer for me . . . and it's almost over. I will be starting school again on Monday, and I think that I'm actually looking forward to it!
The girls and I have been busy moving into our new home, which happens to be directly across the street from where I work, for the past few weeks. I love it, and so do the girls. We have even acquired our very own new pet . . . Benji, a 6-year old pug with whom we've all fell madly in love with. It's been fun painting, decorating, and making this space one that my girls are comfortable with and one that shouts, "Andrea lives here!" I have almost finished unpacking all the boxes and re-arranging everything . . . I hope to have it all done by Sunday!
I'm trying to Just Breathe and take it all in before the madness called school starts! For now, I'm going to leave you with some pictures of projects that I had completed right before moving:
