Challenge Me Happy #32 & ScrapFIT #78

Good Monday morning, scrap friends!  I hope you had a marvelous weekend and are well-rested for another week.  I have two mid-month reveals to share with you today...and I'm going to share them in the same post.  I don't want to post them separately on the same day because I don't want either of them to be overlooked or go unnoticed.

Challenge Me Happy #32 is up, and it's a photo inspiration challenge.  Here's the photo:

I recently got my hands on October Afternoon's Midway collection, and I absolutely adore it.  The circles in this patterned paper instantly reminded me of the hanging lanterns in the photo.

The winner of this challenge will receive a paper pack from Nikki Sivils!  Head on over HERE to upload your project.  Also, you'll want to see what the other DT members created...everyone's take on the photo is so different & unique!

ScrapFIT #78 is a sketch challenge, and the amazingly talented Diana Fisher has outdone herself again. Check it out!

Here's what I came up with.  I knew scrapping the purple in Paige's shirt was going to be difficult, but I searched through my very old stash of papers and found this one...definitely not my typical color choices, but I love how it turned out.  Sometimes those pages that start out "ugly" to you wind up being pretty cool after it's finished :)  The look on Paige's face cracks me up she doesn't believe a word I'm saying to her...haha!  Those raised eyebrows kill me!

Check out the prize...a Low-Cal FITKit!  It's full of fun embellishments.  And as always, if you don't want to wait to win one, you can head over to Paper Issues right now and buy one.  Use the code FITKIT to get 20% off!

Head on over to the blog HERE to check out what the rest of the DT created and to upload your project.

Thanks for stopping by...have a good one!


  1. Great use of the inspiration photo, Missy!! Love that you used the Midway collection for a non-fair themed page!! :) And your take on Diana's sketch is adorable!! Love the big fussy cut flower in the bottom corner!!

  2. These are both just so sweet, Missy~! The collection in the first looks like it was MADE for that challenge! And you really did a great job finding that purple paper to draw out the color of Paige's shirt- a perfect match!!


  3. Amazing pages. You so rock using color!! Great take on the photo challenge!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  4. Beautiful LO's. I love how you add texture and color :)

  5. Both beautiful! I love how you used the inspiration photo for the Challenge Me Happy layout and the color combo and precious pic in your ScrapFit LO are just perfect!
