ScrapFIT #74 & Challenge Me Happy #28

Hello there, scrappy friends!  I hope you're having a great Wednesday.  I have two new challenges to share with you today from two of my favorite challenge blogs...ScrapFIT and Challenge Me Happy.

ScrapFIT #74 is a sketch by the amazing and talented Diana Fisher.  She's our Creative Trainer, and she created this awesome sketch just for us!

Here is what I created using the August FITKit from Paper Issues.  You can still buy one if you'd like...I promise it's full of scrappy goodness :)  My funny child used to like to bounce up and down on our big couch pillows, and it looked like she was trying to do push we started calling them Pillow Pushups :)

Check out the prize you could win for this Workout...the new Low Cal FITKit! 

Be sure to link up your project on the blog for a chance to win!  This fabulous kit is also available for purchase in the Paper Issues Store, and if you use the code FITKIT at checkout, you'll get 20% off!

Challenge Me Happy #28 is up today, also, and it's a Book of Me challenge.  Your title needs to include the words, "When I Grow up..."

I love this picture of me, my stepmom and my little sister.  The year was 1986...I was 10 and my sister was 3.  I hate to call Trisha my stepmom because she is just like another mom to me.  She and my dad married in 1986, so she has been a part of my life for 26 of my 36 years.  So technically, the term "step" doesn't even apply here.  When she began dating my dad, she had this 3-wheeler, and I LOVED going for rides on it!  I couldn't wait to grow up and drive it, and I love how my sister is on her little baby cute!  It was long after this that my dad got me my own 3-wheeler, and I was in heaven!  I used Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic here...omg!  One of my absolute faves!

The winner of this challenge will receive TWO 6x6 paper pads from Studio Calico! Link up on the Challenge Me Happy blog HERE...and remember, your layout needs to be created for this challenge ONLY.

 Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!


  1. Amazing pages!! Love them both and great cluster in the lower corner of the top page for ScrapFIT! :)

  2. Great use of the sketch Missy!! Love the b&w photos and the cute title that goes along with them! The touch of ribbon adds some great texture! And I LOVE the pieces of chevron that you added to the second page!! One of my fave trends right now!!

  3. Realy creative LO pages you have got here, and cute pictures :)
    Love all the layers of little paper pieces you place randomly but so well in-between all the other fab embellishments

  4. Two gorgeous LO's - the first so sweet from the adorable photos to the chevron flower mix!! The second holds such treasured childhood memories - love the neat blend of designs and colors!! ~ Blessings, Tracey
