ScrapFIT Warm-Up #28 & more

We are off to a very rainy morning here in Florida.  Lucky for us, the kids didn't have to get up to go to school, so we were able to sleep in while it rained.  The perfect morning -- laying in bed, listening to rain & thunder, and not having to get up and get out in it!  It's still going out there, so it looks like a great day to work on some scrappy pages :)

I wanted to share this month's Warm-Up over at ScrapFIT.  The challenge is to use stickers on your know, the ones you bought a long time ago that you probably have hidden in your stash somewhere.  I used some fishy stickers that I've had for sooooo long.  They finally made their way onto a layout!  I backed them with cardstock and then used pop dots to give them some dimension.

I created my background with some simple water color paints...I used a cup to create the big circles and just let the paint run .

The winner of the Warm-Up will be featured in the FITGirl Spotlight on June 26th! I hope you find the time to play along with us. You can also be featured by taking our Step Class,'s being posted tomorrow on the ScrapFIT blog.

I also wanted to share a few layouts I've made recently for My Scraps & More. We have just started a summer-long contest called My Scraps Got Talent II. They did this last year, and it was a big hit. There have been two pre-contest challenges posted so far, and I am hosting one of them. They are all based on sketches by some amazing women. I was able to work with a sketch by Kristine Davidson from Creative Scrappers.  Check out the forum to see the sketch!

Here is my layout...the twist added was to include some stitching on your page. I used the Lily Bee Designs Buttercup collection. It's available at the My Scraps & More online store. Paige had just snatched off her sun hat, and her hairdo reminded me of Justin Bieber...haha!

One more layout for the day...this one was for another challenge at My Scraps & More. Every Monday is {scraplift} day, so I was able to choose a page from the gallery to lift. I went wild with the bright colors ( usual) and wanted to bring out the colors in Reese's shirt.  I used totally random papers from my rhyme or reason whatsoever.  I also grabbed several different ribbons that matched.  Sometimes I love the challenge of not working with a specific collection.

Well, if you made it this far, I thank you! I always appreciate you coming to visit my blog. I love sharing my work with you! I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. I love the paint on your first one Missy! It reminds me of balloons in the background! Those Lily Bee papers on the second are fabulous and I am loving the b&w photo once again! And on the third one, I love that you used kraft for the background. Really makes the bright colors pop!

  2. Blown away by your awesomeness, as usual!! Loving your water color effects, you make it sound so easy! But when I played around with them for the Stars In Their Eyes competition, I really struggled and ruined about 10 sheets of paper before I got what I wanted, lol! Must just take lots of practice?! Anyway, I especially love what you did with that Lily Bee collection, that One has been on my wish list for awhile, now you've truly inspired me to get it in hand!

  3. Oh my goodness, 3 amazing layouts- where to start?! As always, I love how you use color- never ceases to amaze me. Love the drips- and your Bieber layout literally made me laugh out loud!! You are so talented, keep up the inspiring work and I will keep coming back!
    Take care, my friend :)
