WOW...am I behind

I can't believe I forgot to post all my work from the Red Hot Crop at Just Scrappin'. So, I'll give ya a brief description of what challenge everything was for.

This 1st card for was for Karen B's Challenge Red Hot Card Challenge-- requirement were we had a sketch to follow as well as main color to be yellow ( and no pink), no Valentine Cards, and to use a quote no generic quote like HAppy Birthday, Thanks, Thinking of You...My quote is on the stamped flower and it says April Showers Always Brings May Flowers


This card was for Kelly's Puzzled Challenge...you had to use a puzzle piece on your card. I made my my own puzzle pieces... I traced some puzzle pieces on old cereal boxes. Then I traced a hear shaped over the traced pieces. I cut the heart out first, then I cut pieces apart where I wanted. I have to admit I had Janis on my media player when this idea popped into my head.

This was also another one of Kelly's challenges. It was a Becky Fleck Page Maps card sketch with a twist of you had to use the colors orange or purple in it.

This one here was my favorite from the weekend crop. This was dear Ziggy's challenge (she always comes up with a real thinker).
"Your challenge is to scrapbook a Book - Movie (or even a Movie to Book) that you saw and Loved or even Hated. For example I Loved the book The Eagle Has Landed by Jack Higgins but hated the movie. I loved Matilda by Rhold Dahl and the Movie was extremely close.

Coraline is about a girl who goes to another world where everything seems better but everyone has button eyes. The movie is completly handmade (and I mean completely! down to the nose hairs!) it is stop-motion animation and filmed in 3 D)
So here are the challenge requirements:
You must have journaling
at least 1 picture
You must have buttons
You must have dimension
something handmade "
I put a lot of time into this LO... first I printed off a cover of the book in B&W. Then I inked it up...playing with ink on photo paper is a lot of fun but you have to work quick because the ink dries up and you can't really blend it. My Title Some Pig was my handmade item...it's thread that I stickled. Also the spider wed is one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders. I really had a lot of fun with this one as you can see, and tried to put those extra touches on it!
This was Carol's " Shot Through The Heart" Challenge and no, it had nothing to do with the Bon Jovi song ( even though we were all singing it when we read the challenge-- Ziggy even posted a youtube video of the song--gotta love it). So, are challenge was we had to use arrows and wings on our LO. I took the easy way out with My Mind's Eye papers and punch put and used the cupid and the blue paper has arrows on it to. This is me and the DH when I was in my BFF's wedding. This LO also did double duty for me too because I used it as my monthly challenge at JS where we had to create a LO with no title and let the pics do the talking.

Here's another double duty LO. I combined Sandy's Scraplift Challenge and Michelle's Quote Challenge into one. For Sandy Challenge we had to pick one of three LO's of members on our board to scrap lift ( I picked Karen B to scraplift) and Michelle quote Challenge was to use the quote " Live well, laugh often, love much". I had this pic from New Years's Eve 2007 that I thought wouldn't it be cute to make the quote our family New Year's Resolution for 2008.


This was challenge by the ever-so-crafty Miss Aymee called "Feel Me Up" Challenge ( gotta love that title right. She gave us a sketch but the "feel" part of the challenge was we had to use fabric on our LO. My fabric is the red with circles in the top left and right next to the pic, also I used fiber to wrap around the pic. All the black waves around the border, and the swirls coming out from the material, I stamped on.

And this was a tag challenge that Ziggy hosted called "Orange Ya Glad" where we had a pagemaps tag sketch plus we had to use the color orange/lime green.


And finally, here was the challenge that I hosted for everyone.
Mini Valentine Book Challenge:
The challenge at hand, is to crop from your heart a special Valentine Book for that special someone in your life (DH, signifcant other, parent, child, whomever). Now for the conditions:
