Challenge fun!

I hope everyone had a scrappy weekend!  I was able to spend the weekend cropping with my BFF in St Louis!  It was one of the best crops I have attended (and yes, I've been to a lot!).  This crop was sponsored by First Class Scraps.  Mary Jo and Maureen who run it are the nicest, most sweet and fun people I have met !  They make your experience VERY enjoyable and I felt as if I had known them my whole life, very inspiring ladies to meet!  If you have a chance to attend one of their crops make sure and do so, it is DEFINITELY worth traveling to as well!  You won't regret your experience there , the facilities are lovely, the food is great, the cropping group is super friendly and fun and you have TONS of space and time to work on what you want!  While I was there I was able to get  layouts done for a few challenges.  Here is my layout using the new Fancy Pants Boardwalk collection:
Supplies Used: Paper: Fancy Pants Boardwalk, CTMH (red diagnol) & Echo Park
 (orange background); cardstock: Stampin Up Basic Black and Red Riding Hood; metal
accent: Fancy Pants; flower: felt fusion; letter stickers: Fancy Pants; Journal card: Fancy Pants

I created this page for two challenges.  The first challenge is for Paper Secrets sketch with a twist.  Here is the sketch by Page Maps:
The twist was to use a project life type card on your layout, I had to borrow one from my table mate and it was funny how this older Fancy Pants line matched the newer one!  Love happy mistakes since I forgot the twist and didn't pack a card to use!    I am also entering this is Personalscrapper's Summer Camp challenge to use the word Summer in your title using two different alpha stickers!   I hope you will have a scrappy happy week folks!  I did a bunch of layouts at the crop, not all of which I can show just yet, so stay tuned for more inspiration soon on the old bloggo!  Toodles!


  1. You did an awesome job using this sketch! Love your layout! The colors and patterns are awesome! And what a fun photo!

  2. Gorgeous layout Lisa. I love the little flags and I have been wanting to add a PL type card to my layouts lately. Tomorrow is the day I do it.

  3. Awesome job on the sketch with a "borrowed" twist! ;) I'm so glad you had such a good time. Can't wait to see your other layouts! Thanks for playing along with us at Paper Secrets! :)
