Winter Blessings

Here's a layout I did last night of my daughter. It's a picture my husband took the night she was born (Christmas!!). The nurses were cleaning and dressing her so he quick snapped this shot and I just love it!

Thanks Pinky for the great tutorial!
I also entered it into a couple of challenges:
Alphabet Challenge Blog: for New (for my new baby girl:)
Pile it On: Warm Wishes
Practical Scrappers: Two patterned papers
Design Dollies: sketch (I went for the trifecta again!)
Elements: Birthday
Color: Monochromatic Blues
Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Design Dollies Challenge ~ Trifecta!!

Over at Design Dollies they post three challenges each week. One is a color combo, an element and a sketch challenge. You can choose to do three separate projects for each challenge or you can go for the Trifecta. Which is what I did this week, I combined all 3 challenges into one layout.
Here's the color combo:
Turquoise, White and Lime Green
The Sketch:
The elements challenge: Favorite Things. You could use lines from the song in "Sound of Music". Or list at least 3 favorite things (and not craft related).
Here's my layout.....

I glimmer misted my white paper (which is hard to's a rainy day here in WI not ideal for picture taking!). I also took 2 big white Prima flowers and glimmer misted them (colors: Sea glass and Meadow green) The only colors I have that are close to turquoise and lime green;)

I wrote my 3 favorite things on a journal card that I hid behind my 5x7 picture.

The journal card says, "1. Girls in black dress with silver satin sashes.
2. Bouquets of flowers all tied up with string.
3. And me in my white dress.
These are just a few of my favorite things"
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!

ScrapFIT Workout #12

Over at ScrapFIT workout# 12 is Weight Lifting. You have to pick a LO that one of their talented FITgirls did from the past 6 months and "lift" it.

After much debate as to which LO I wanted to scraplift (because there are way too many wonderful LO's that the DT made). I finally decided on Aymee's (A Scraphappy Southernbelle) from Workout #6.

This is Aymee's LO from Workout #6.

I loved her LO, so I didn't stray too far from the original.

This LO also fit well with the challenge over at Pile it On! which is to use at least 3 ribbons.
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!
