ME. -- Designed for "White With 1" - May Challenge

While I was doing some blog surfing and leaving some love for lots of talented women, I happened upon a link to "White With 1" and was INSTANTLY hooked!   This Challenge blog is right up my alley!!!!

The deal is:  use white and ONE other color ... this month happens to be orange ... and I'm SOOOO into orange right now I can hardly stand it ... I've been on a quest for the perfect orange handbag for a few months and haven't been able to find exactly what I was looking for ...

Here's my take on this most awesome challenge:

As always ... comments/suggestions are totally appreciated!

Wine Tasting - Designed for Once Upon A Sketch - May 15th Challenge

Time to get creative again!  Going on the one-day crop with Tracy last Saturday really got me itching to scrapbook again ... I managed to find a few minutes here/there over the last 2 days to get this LO done ... it's based on the May 15th sketch at Once Upon A Sketch ... This one came pretty easy and I didn't rearrange things a million times before glue happened!

Here's my take:

Wow ... Is it the middle of May ALREADY?!?!?!

Sigh ... I just realized that my last post was April 28th ... that means 2 weeks without any scrapbooking, and that isn't good for my creative side!  I spent Saturday with my friend, Tracy, at a charity scrapbook event and managed to get 4 pages done ... I've decided that 'speed scrappin' isn't working for me ... and that quality should always trump quantity when I go to an event ... I've found that I like my pages MUCH better when I take my time and don't let the clock rule ...

Here's what I got done on Saturday:

 edit to add the 4th layout ... took me a while to finish placement of the flowers!
