I bought all this gorgeous stuff from Paper Issues.  Some Photo Play “Wild Love”, Carta Bella “Our House” and Crate Paper “La La Love”.

With all my new stuff, I have no idea what I’m going to use for this weeks “52 Favourites” challenge.  I might have to participate in another challenge just so I can dig into ALL my new goodies! LOL!

It’s a super snowy day today and I would love to be scrapbooking, but I have a birthday present I’m knitting for a friend that has to get done, so today, knitting it is!!

If you’ve never checked out the Paper Issues store, have a look,  They carry the newest stuff all the time!!

Hungry like a bear…

Good morning everyone!

Here’s the layout I created yesterday.

It’s for week 4 of my “52 Favourites”, but also I played along with another challenge over at Paper Issues.  It’s the “Tic Tac Toe” challenge.  You have to use items in squares that form a diagonal, horizontal or vertical line (just like in tic tac toe).  I went with a vertical line on the left side of the chart which was “Bears, Patterned Paper and Journaling”.DSCN8479What I like a about challenges are they really help you think outside your scrapbooking box.

For this photo of the bread, I would never have thought of using this title, or a bear on my page for that matter, but by participating in the challenge, I ended up with a much cuter page than I had in mind.dscn8480dscn8481For the background, I used a piece of Bazzill Basics Kraft paper and the patterned paper is from Photo Play Paper “Campfire” collection along with the bear sticker.  I also cut out the little bear peeking out from behind the journaling from a piece of their paper and the “TODAY” paper I journaled on.  The enamel dots are from Simple Stories “Hello Fall” collection.

I’m off now to go to Michaels.  I have three 40% off coupons and I’m in desperate need of some new albums since I’ve been scrapbooking so much lately. 😀

Catch up soon!
