More challenges!!

Last Friday was my turn to post a challenge for Life Preservers! The new flair given for completing the challenges are so fun, and we decided to make it even easier for you to earn your monthly flair! At the end of the month, the challenge will be a Keep It Simple card challenge. My challenge was to use a pre-made element on your card! What could be easier? I used a little wreath and leaves by Jolee's Boutique to embellish my fall card. I hope you give one of these challenges a try!

August Challenges at LPSC!

Are you in a rut? Try one of the weekly challenges at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club to give your creativity a boost!

August weekly challenge #2 - Make a positive from a negative:

This is one my favorite photos I took during a recent family reunion! I just love the faces of the two girls, who look so much alike when they are side by side. Using the #2 August weekly challenge from Life Preservers, I was able to scrap it! Lisa's challenge was to use make a positive out of a negative, or use something unusual as a "mask" on your page with spray mists. I used some heart shaped doilies I have to create the lacy background for this page.

The French title was inspired by a past month's challenge to use a title in a language other than your own. I thought it was perfect because the girls are so pretty, and the only girls on that side of the family.

August Week #3 Challenge - LPS in the House!

Sharon's challenge was to use one of the LPS kits to make a decorative item for your home. I have coveted these pretty paper garlands I've seen around, and decided to give one a shot. I used papers from 5 different October Afternoon kits, punched circles from the paper, and sewd them together using a straight stitch on a sewing machine. It was so easy, and very pretty!

Fly A Kite!

The kits at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club are always adorable, but I especially love the Alternate kit this month, which features products from the October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" line! Here are a few of the projects I've done so far.

A little mini book made with tags.

Here is a card I made for my sister's birthday.
