Croppy fun!

The Personalscrapper Happy New Year's crop was a lot of fun and pretty productive for me! I got 5 of the challenges done. These are two of the layouts I was able to finish, the first one didn't really fit one of the crop challenges but did fit the challenge for week #2 of the 52 week challenges to scrap your family. This is my SIL, brother and nephew at the pumpkin patch last fall! I love this pic of them. I used the October Personalscrapper kit, featuring We R Memory's Autumn Splendor line. Letters are felt Thickers by American Crafts and Basic Grey minis (love these things!). Extras from my stash ( journaling spot by Paper Trunk, flower by We R Memory Keepers, Stickers by We R Memory Keepers (PS Oct. Kit) and calendar cut out by Paper Loft). Layout based on a sketch by Sketchy Thursdays. Sad to say, they are no longer going to be doing weekly sketches. I didn't have a chance to play along with them most of the time, but I always followed along and enjoy their sketches as well as the inspiration from those playing along!
The second layout was for the crop challenge : Mix 3 patterns of paper! I love these kind of challenges. I used the November Personalscrapper kit for the first time, featuring American Crafts Night Fall line. Letters included in kit are from Scenic Route (sure miss that company!). I used a lot of embellies from my stash on this one too! Ticket by Tim Holz, flower by Sassafrass Lass, calendar by Jenny Bowlin and family embelli from Rusty Pickle (this is an old one for sure)
This is a another page for my nephew's album, he just turned 2 last week! I love this picture of the 3 of them with the elk head my brother got hunting this fall.
Hope you enjoyed my scrappy crop fun folks! I'll be back in a day or two to share the rest of my 52 week challenges, can you believe we are in week 4 of 2012 already? Wow, hope 2012 doesn't blow by as fast as 2011 and hope I can complete all 52 of the challenges this year! Come join us at Personalscrapper if you would like to for the 52 week challenge, it's a great way to get those pictures in those albums and those memories in those books! Have a wonderful week friends!


  1. You've been up to gorgeous stuff, of course! Always love all you create!

  2. I miss the online crops. I love the layouts you made. Maybe this year I will find the time to take part in Erica's crops.
