TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Hi everyone!  I hope your weekend is going great so far.  Just a real quick post as I have tons to do today.  My plans are to do a bit of stamping, clean the house and the put up the tree.  Then maybe a Christmas movie tonight.  We'll see.

So awhile back The Pink Elephant was having a DT call for the scrapbook page weekly challenge.  I decided to apply because I need some sort of motivation to get back to scrapbooking - my kids have tons of pictures that needs to get into albums and I haven't done a thing in YEARS!  Well, I didn't think I made it but then I got a late night email from Lori Boyd a couple of weeks inviting me to the team. Whoo-hoo!!  I was supposed to start last week, but it just didn't happen.  I had slipped on something in the grocery store and over-compensated to keep myself from falling and wrenched my back. I'm OK - a heating pad helped but I just didn't get to get started.

I did this week, however, and the challenge is a recipe challenge.

Big Title, Stitching and Green


I loosely followed a sketch from Page Maps.  This is a little more CAS than I envisioned but after ruining my first couple of attempts and not finding the photo that I wanted to use, I decided I better quit while I was ahead before I ruined something else.

Now the photo.  This is daughter (right) and her best friend Taylor.  They are Directioners... crazed teenage girls over One Direction.  We made these t-shirts for the girls for Taylor's birthday.   Since I don't have a sewing machine, my stitching came from a white gel pen and a ruler.  My greens clash a little bit, but when Hollyanne saw the page, she was very happy.  That's what counts!

See you over at the TPE Blog!  Come on, break out those pictures and come play along!
