ScrapFIT #65 & Challenge Me Happy #20

Good Sunday morning, everyone! I just realized I hadn't posted anything in over a week. I have been busy, busy, busy this past week, and although I have been creating, most of it has been DT work that can't be shown yet. Today is April 1st, so that means I have two reveals to share with you today!

First up is Workout #65 at ScrapFIT. This one is a photo-inspired challenge, and let me tell you, it's a tough one! When I first saw it, I didn't know where to start. I decided to scrap an old photo of me and my husband from 18 years ago. We started dating in 1994...I was just 18. I pulled out the Echo Park For the Record Line, and it was perfect for this challenge.

Here is the inspiration photo:

And here is what I created:

The prize for this challenge is this beautiful set of handmade goodies from My Divine Inspiration Etsy Shop. Aren't they so pretty?!

You have until April 30th to play along with us. Now you must go check out the ScrapFIT blog and see how the other DT members interpreted this cool picture!

My second reveal for today is the latest challenge from Challenge Me Happy. It's #20, and it's super easy. It's an Anything Goes challenge, which means just what it says. Upload anything for a chance to win a fabulous package of goodies from My Little Shoebox!

I created this layout using Echo Park's This and That line. I'm in love with these juicy colors!

I based my layout design on a beautiful layout created by the super-talented Melissa Pablo. I love her work, and I really wanted to scraplift one of her layouts. I contacted her and asked if she minded, and she happily said yes! I know we all scraplift and get ideas from others, but if you're going to pretty much copy another's work, I think it's only right to run it by that person first. So I did, and now I can share it with you. You really must check out Melissa's blog and see her amazing work...she's awesome!

Here is her original layout I based mine on:

One more tidbit of good news...I won Honorable Mention in Challenge #33 at My Mind's Eye last week! I couldn't believe it. There were SO many amazing entries. I'm so ecstatic and thankful for being recognized!!

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful first week of April!


  1. Beautiful work, as always. I love the color combinations you create.

  2. I love both of your pages!! Amazing work! :)

  3. Gorgeous work my friend! I love all the projects. I think you did fabulously on the ScrapFit workout! It was a toughy. I love all the layering you did.

  4. Both of these rock using the EP Missy!! I think For the Record has been one of my favorite lines from them and you did an awesome job using it with the inspiration photo! And your scraplift turned out really great! I like that you added your own touches to make it a "Missy" layout!! :)

  5. Love all the layering in your ScrapFIT layout! Fantastic work, as always!
