Online Scrapbook Crop Weekend

I recently participated in my first online scrapbook crop weekend. It was Thursday-Sunday and we had fourteen layout themes to do. The themes were based on song titles from the movie "The Wedding Singer".
I completed all fourteen and here are the results:

#1- Love Stinks(we had a heart layout to follow)

#2-You Spin Me Like A Record(we had to use brads or eyelets)

#3- Somebody Kill Me Please(you had to use a bad picture of yourself and make it special)

#4-Grow Old With You(focus on someone you love a great deal and use a technique you love)- I used a Versamark pen on cardstock with chalk rubbed over top of it.

#5-Holiday(can feature any holiday)

6-99 Balloons(use as many pictures as you have kids)

7-Money(use a monogram letter)

8-White Wedding(do a black & white layout, photos can be color)

9-Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go(use a photo of your kiddo sleeping)

10-Hungry Heart(use a photo of someone eating something)

11-Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic(honor your little one)

12-Ladies Night(crafter's choice...any layout you want) These were voted on to see whose was the favorite and I won!! Yippee!

13-Do You Believe In Love-(we were given a template to follow and you needed to crop someone you love)

Bonus layouts:

Bingo challenge(we had a bingo card of scrapbook words). We had to pick a line of four and then make a page using those four items. I chose: scraps, buttons, stickers & tags.

All in all I'm pretty pleased that I got so much accomplished. This was definitely a great way to push myself to take the time to get some scrappin' done. I can't wait till next month!!

Happy New Year!

I'm so behind on posting and hope to get caught up later this week. Anyway, in the meantime I just wanted to shout out HAPPY NEW YEAR to whomever is listening. I feel this year is going to be a good one!

Here is my cutie ringing in the New Year. The poor lil thing tried so hard to stay up and crashed at 11:45pm. I didn't let him drink the champagne of course, but he sure thought he was big stuff holding the glass. He liked the bubbles.
