Scrap Attack PageMaps Contest Entry

This layout was inspiring for these pictures of my little Jaxson playing in the rain puddles. I haven't worked this hard on one page (and having to locate all my supplies) in a long time. But the hard work paid off and I love the turnout.I used brads to accent the sun.  I chalked the cloud to give it definition.  I created the raindrops out of torn little pieces of my scrap blues. I added crystal effects to the puddle to give it more of a real and 3D effect. The raindrops are also pop-dotted to add dimension.

The Color Room....fabulous...

Have you ever had time, space, supplies and NO motivation to scrapbook? Well that seems to be me lately. I spend more time on FB and the net in general than I do in my crop space. Well tonight, I decided to check some of my scrap links for some inspiration and ran across a new fave...the color room. Check out their first 13 posted challenges and pallettes. I think I have found my inspiration.....for tomorrow.

New Pagemaps Contest and this month the challenge has COLORS.

Can't wait to try it. I have seen penants everywhere in books and los online so finally have a good sketch to try it. Will have to use my annual 4th of July family pic as the focus. Will be tons of fun!

My Crop Space....

I have always wanted my very own crop space in my house. U know, one that was not the kitchen or dining room table. One that I did not have to always clean up afterwards. Well, I finally got one. I have had it for about a year now and I think it is finally the functional space I need it to be.
I have a dry erase calendar, a neat little open cabinet, my roll around carts and my crop n -style. My shelf and my self-portrait. And did I really comfy rolling chair. :-)
