My 6th folder on my disc was from a day of fishing down the at the catch and release lake, Little Flipper Lake, about a half a mile from my house. We walk to it when we do go fishing. This is a picture of my oldest son, Layton, who is 9 with a small bass that he caught and was holding. Can you see the worm in the fish's mouth--yuck right! Oh, and look at my son's disgusting hands -- fish slime and worm guts all over them! I'm sure you really wanted the details, right? LOL! It was a fun day of fishing that day though and I think we caught 9 fish that day. By the way, guess who gets to take the fish off the hooks and put them back in the water--me!
The following ladies, you've been tagged!! These are all scrappy friends and places I get inspiration from! Can't wait to see what you ladies post!
Remember the rules are 6th folder, 6th picture, post on your blog, and tag 6 more!!
Have a scrappy day!

Just another view so you can see how I doubled up on the butterflies to make it a little 3-D. I just cut the antenna off the top layer and creased each wing at the body.
Thanks for stopping in and good luck to all those who enter this week's challenge!

This is Delaney at Splash Lagoon this past summer cuttin it up on the DDR ( Dance Dance Revolution machine in the arcade there. I cut all the letters and arrows out on the cricut. The leter I inked around the edges and misted with water to give it them that blended effect.
Journaling read:" Wow, look at those moves on the DDR machine in the arcade at Splash Lagoon! You go girl!"
Picture is from our summer trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo in June 2008. I think Ihave have all the zoo animals scrapped now to put our zoo book together! YEAH!! The bananas I drew and cut out then just inked 'em up!
Here is a pic of each page individually. I use one of the December 2008 Page Map Sketches to do this 2 page spread and I just love how it came out. Flourishes were cut on the cricut as well as the 2008, and a little stickles for touch on flowers and around the numbers.
Thanks for stopping by and checking them out. I can't post the other project I started because it's for my DH for his Valentine's Day present, but I finished it today, took pics, and will post after I give it to him! I don't think he checks my blog because I show him everything I scrap, but ya never know when he might pop in!
Have a scrappy Monday- and I'll be back to post later in the week!

Here's the sketch....
And here's my take....
The journaling reads " ~Fall 08~ How sweet life is to be this young and carefree, and to not have a single worry in the world. To whirl and twirl with the leaves; how sweet it is!"
The lucky winner will receive a collection pack of BasicGrey's new Bittersweet papers (including alphas and element stickers), plus coordinating glazed brads, buttons and olio rubs. Wish me luck and thanks for looking!!
Have a scrappy day!

The second set of pics here is for the Monthly Challenge. The challenge presented to us was to sew on our LO, card, or altered project or faux stitching. This here is my creation. This is a 4 x 6 card. I cut the flowers & leaves on my cricut, the stems are just 1/4 inch strips that I curled by wrapping them around a pencil. The stamped image is a Studio g stamp.
Here's a close up of my sewing...it's not too great, but hey, it adds some character right! The basket weave is material stitched to cardstock. It made it a little easier to stitching the material to the cardstock then glueing it down --didn't have to worry about the material bunching up.
On a side note I just started joining in on the challenges at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. One of the new design team members, Ann, is offering some "blog candy" in honor of her becoming a new design team member. Stop by and leave her some love and join in on the challenge on the 14th to try and win yourself a new cuttlebug "Treetops" cutting and embossing set--it's so cute! Here's the link: http://craftworkblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/exciting-news.html
Have a very scrappy day!

Now for some of the other challenges:
Aymee's Sketch Challenge
Aymee's sketch challenge was very straight forward, use the following sketch for a LO!
Here's mine....this was the first time I've ever tried sewing on a LO. I wasn't paying attention and on the vertical stripe I had the machine set on the stretch stitch which does not work on paper, but I did finish up that stripe with that stitch. The horizontal stripe turned out much better.
Kelly's "Who Am I" Challenge And Springbreeze Recipe Challenge:
For Kelly 's Who Am I Challenge you had to do a sketch about who you are and use this sketch.
2. only one photo that must be matted
3. some bling
4. paperclip or pin or photo anchor (or combo of the three)
5. at least three different pattern papers
I combined the two challenges into one LO so this one did double duty for me!
KarenB's Color Challenge:
Create a LO, Card, or Altered item with the majory colors being ( teal/green and orange)
Carol's Calendar Challenge
Carol's challenge to us was to make a 2009 wall or desk calendar. It can be a single page with all the months or a multi-page calendar with each month on a seperate page and if you're feeling really energetic you may want to make/construct the entire year.
Guess you could say I was feeling energetic!! LOL! Layton and I made these together actually and we had a lot of fun doing them. His turned out so cute!! He picked all his own papers and embellies, and we just used old cereal boxes ( who needs chipboard when you through as much cereal as I do). Besides, might as well make use of that packing you are paying for right!
I think I'm going to take a scrappy break today and tomorrow, then off to get started on some monthly challenges! Have a good one!
