One of the reasons I have gotten so many layouts done this month was because I was participating in a use your stash challenge at Scrapdango. It has been a great month there. I have also been participating in the DT call challenge. I love that they did it this way instead of a regualar call. It challenged us all to create some great layouts. So many talented people participated...Now the wait is on to see who makes the team. Here are a few more layouts that I have completed this month, hope you like.

On a Mission

I have been on a mission. I am bound and determined to use up some of the stash that I have accumilated over the last 6 years. I have done 55+ layouts and a card in the last 14 days. All but 3 were done with stash and/or scraps. Today I have not cut a whole piece of pp. The only whole pieces I have used have been for the base of the page. I am so proud. I want to reduce the stash before I buy anything from CHA. I know if I get new stuff, I will be tempted to use it first.

Kids and chores

My kids are driving me nuts. I am getting really tired of having to tell them to do their chores. My ds was supposed to paint the decks (as repayment for his new pet) and I have had to tell him 100 times a day to go work on it for the last 3 weeks. If I could I would have just done it myself would have been so much easier. My girls are getting just as bad. I don't know what to do, it is so frustrating. Any suggestions?

So on Fire!!

OK, last night I was up until 3 am scrapping. DH thinks he has been abandoned (well, he has). I was on a roll and there was no stopping me. I created several
(10) layouts last night. Here are a few of my favorites.

Need a little inspiration?

You will find it at Scrap Schemes Check out this weeks art inspiration and boy does it spark my fire. I have so many thoughts going thru my crazy head I can 't wait to go scrap. The DT there did an awesome job with their work. Everything from altered art, layouts and cards to inspire you.

July 2

I have been working up a storm trying to complete the kids Disney albums from last summer. I can't say that all the layouts are DT quality layouts but it is nice to just scrap randomly. I am using some Theme paper and often wonder why the heck I bought this, but I did so I am going to use it (not my favorite!) I do sneak in a layout every now and then using regular paper. Did one tonight of the Pink Power Ranger. You can ck it out at Serendipity Scrapbooks.
