TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Hi there!  Happy Saturday afternoon.  If you're here for just a visit, thanks for coming by and please, let me invite you to join The Pink Elephant scrapbook challenge team's blog hop.  This is our official debut!

So for those that are hopping and new to my blog, let me introduce myself.  My name is Melissa Craig...


And this is me, the picture was taken a couple of years ago, but it's my favorite one of me.  I really tried to update my photo, but ugh!  Anyway, a little bit about me.  I am a single mother of 3 teenagers and they are wonderful children.  My oldest son Brendan will graduate high school this year, my lovely daughter Hollyanne is in the 9th grade and is in her 7th year of ballet.  She also takes Jazz and Lyrical.  My youngest son, Levi is 13 he's a challenge, but an absolute teddy bear.

I've been scrapbooking since my oldest son was about a month or so old.  And then when I was pregnant with daughter that I started stamping.  And I've never looked back.  I also enjoy other crafts and hobbies such as reading, crochet and cooking.  I don't watch TV much.

And if that wasn't enough, I also own my own sketch challenge blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches.

So, enough about me.  There is a girl at work that has always been very nice to me and she's due to have a baby girl in March, so I wanted to make her a little brag book.  So I'll actually be sharing this book over the next several weeks of TPE challenges.  Here's the first page...


This will be a finished size of 5x5.  I based this page on a sketch from TPE that I believe was published in May of 2010.


Now, you're next stop on the blog hop is Stacey's blog.  Enjoy!!

Those pink patterned sheep are absolutely darling, Melissa!!! Beautiful layout! Thank you for your heartfelt comment on my blog. I, too, was picked on and am just now realizing that I still need to be kind to those I personally feel are "privileged" in some way or another. As I get to know more people, I realize that we all had struggles of one kind or another and that God gives each of us different trials based on what we personally need. HUGS to you and I am so glad to have found your sweet blog!!! :)
