ScrapFIT #69 & Challenge Me Happy #24

Happy Friday, fellow scrappers!  I'm sorry I'm getting these reveals posted so late in the day.  It was Field Day at my daughters' school, and I've been there helping out all day.  Right after lunch it started pouring rain, so everyone pretty much got soaked.  But a good time was had by all, and now that we're home, it's time to do some relaxin'!

I have two layouts to share with you today...the first one is for ScrapFIT's latest workout.  I was so excited to do this one because it's a sketch from our Creative Trainer, Diana Fisher.  She creates some of the most amazing sketches, and this one is no exception.

Here is what I made.  I used a circle template and painted all around it using different water colors.

Here is the sketch:


Holly Craft Originals is our sponsor this month.  The winner of this workout will receive a $20 gift certificate to purchase any of these amazing fabric embellishments.

My next layout is for Challenge Me Happy.  This is challenge #24, and it's a scraplift.  Our example layout comes from the incredibly talented Nina Ostermann.  She's a magician with papers & scissors, and she has chosen a fabulous page for us all to scraplift.  You can visit Nina's blog HERE for more inspiraation.  Check out her page:

This was fun for me, especially since I used some gorgeous Graphic 45 papers given to me from the Scrappin' Patch.  Our awesome leader Annelie Maddock sent them to me, and I was thrilled because this was my very first time using Graphic 45.  I was nervous at first because they are at the total opposite end of the spectrum for what I usually use...but I wound up loving the final product!

The prize for this challenge is some very cool chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard from Australia.

I believe that is all I have for you today...I'm working on a lot of things for later in the month. I can't wait to share them here on the blog! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Gorgeous work today, as always. I love the contrast with the 2 pages - one so bright and the other so lovely and muted. Shows your versatility! Amazing! :)

  2. Two amazing layouts!!! I love the "true Missy style" in the first, with the watercolors and beautiful bright colors. The second is gorgeous, too, you did an awesome job with the softer, feminine look. I agree, you are very versatile!

  3. Missy, those circles on your first layout are A-MAZ-ING!! It just pops off the page! Great job using Diana's sketch!! And I love the soft colors from the G45 line on your second layout. Such a sweet photo and layout!

  4. Your layouts are so fun. I particularly love the watercolors on the first one. So bright and happy! Great job on the lift. Such a pretty pic.
