Scrapping Recipe Challenge #23 and #24

Hi Everyone! I'm having a hard time getting back into the "routine" around here, plus I have a bad cold, so that makes it more difficult! I'm so tired of coughing!!

Anyway, I'm a week behind on showing you my Scrapping Recipe Challenges from Sketches! {by Tamara}. Let me show you Scrapping Recipe #23 first.

For this scrapping recipe, we were challenged to use the following on our card or layout:
  • Squares
  • Paint
  • Punctuation Marks used in a different way (as a design element)

I used square brads, I distressed all of the cardstock with paint, and I used seven question marks that I cut on my Cricut and I made a flower! I was pretty proud of myself for my punctuation mark design element!!

Next, let me show you Scrapping Recipe #24.

For this scrapping recipe, we were to use the following on our card or layout:
  • Two photos or images
  • Stamping
  • Flowers

I had lots of fun stamping on this layout! I used some Stampin' Up alphabet stamps that I haven't used in a LONG time! I also stamped a circular sentiment, a journaling circle, and a very cool swirl! I added lots of flowers, a couple of buttons, one epoxy circle, and a trio of Karen Foster brads. I love this page!

I'm trying to get back in the groove. I'm very behind on emails and on blog hopping! I hope to stop by your blog very soon to see what you've been up to. As always, have a GREAT day, and thanks for stopping by!!
