Last Scrapper Standing-Week one CHallenge

Okay ladies we are off and running now. Do you wanna be the Last Scrapper STanding and hold that title for a year? Sure you do!

So here we go-This is Tami and I will be your hostess with the mostest this week.
This week we are gonna go "GAUDY & GREEN" of course with a twist.
If you know me already you know I love embellies and clusters-aka my gaudy. I also am a hoarder of lil treasures I find here and there-aka going green.

So here's my example for the week

What's the twist you say? Well if you are scrapping a themed photo like I have here of my son playing baseball-you CANNOT use themed papers. Or if you are using themed papers you CANNOT use a photo of a themed-type. Now this may seem a bit confusing-but you dont even have to use themed pps at all. I just want you ladies to think outta the box on this.
Here let me sum it up for you:
1. Embellie cluster (gaudy)
2. Recycled item (green)
3. No theme papers for a theme photo and no theme photo for a theme paper.

Now get to scrappin girls and remember you have until Friday @ midnight CST. to get linked up in our gallery to qualify for the vote.

Cant wait to see what you create,

Seeing spots Challenge

Okay girls I know we all have oodles of journaling spots in our stash. Me personally I have a crazy addiction to those cute lil things and then most of the time I never use them. Well today I want you to USE THEM UP-but we arent gonna journal til the cows come home. We are gonna use them on our lo's as embellishments.

Here's my example for you--I used some Jillibean sprouts and just layered layered and layered them-HECK I almost used a whole package of them. And if you wanna make them go furthere-well cut 'em in half and you have double the fun!

Now lets see how you choose to use your journaling spots ladies. The requirements are very simple-just use up those journaling spots as embellishments of your choice-THATs IT! How many you ask well I gotta put a wee bit of requirement there-lets say no less than 3. Dont forget to post it here in this thread and explain how you used them and you will be entered in our monthly drawing.

Now get to scrappin girls
