2Ps hosted another fun scrappy event tonight, an online crop. Which might sound weird to some, but is actually pretty fun and at the least, entertaining. Every hour, the site sponsors a challenge which members can participate in for the chance to win a prize. Sadly, I didn't win anything this time around. I did, however, walk away with three completed layouts done in a 3 1/2 hour block! That time might be my personal best.

The 7pm challenge had to do with Love. Anything about Love actually. Who you love. What you love. Didn't matter. Since I've never done a page about Hazy and I made a point to take these photos last week, I really wanted to do a HP layout. She's a beaut, ain't she?! Love my pet monster!

The 8pm challenge had an odd supply list: paint, cardboard, staples, something that shines or glitters, and multiple photos. Even though the products were a bit hodge podge, this layout came together in about 30 mins (now that time IS my personal best!). These are photos of Urijah, when I went to visit him after Christmas. He's growing up to be the cutest little boy. He crawled his way over to the window and stood up using the ledge all by himself.

I wanted to use some punches of colors and Cosmo Cricket's Jack's World patterned paper worked out beautifully. I love how the painted corrugated scallops came out. Want a tip on free corrugated cardboard? They're are punched out of a Starbucks cup holder.

The 9pm challenge was a Valentine's challenge. The catch? You had to use 14 hearts on your layout. I hand cut these out of scrap paper and clustered them on the corner of the photo of me and Steve Zissou (what I call Matt when he's wearing that hat!). Since I've done so much journaling about how much I love him, I went for some physical characteristics this go around. So don't think of me as shallow! Oh, and I created the journaling block in Excel and added my list and some number stickers.

All in all, it was a pretty successful scrapping day. And since I'm unemployed, lets face it, an all around successful day!


P.S. Congratulations Matt on taking the lead on Making Memories. I know how long you've been waiting for this day ;)


  1. Lovely layouts! I love them all, but the layered hearts on the last one are fantastic!
