Weather Delay

You really can't fool with Mother Nature. My family and I were scheduled to have dinner aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia dinner cruiseline but our area is being hit with heavy rains and severe thunderstorms so it looks like we might be rescheduling. I was looking forward to hanging out with all of our children at the same time. Oh well hopefully the sun will be shining bright on our rescheduled date.

Time to start planning for the weekend! I downloaded a cool app called Ego Timer that helps you track your tasks, attach a picture or notes to your tasks and even set a timer while you are doing something to track the amount of time you want to spend on a task. This is seemingly great for meeting my scrap goals but my week has been so hectic that all it is doing right now is reminding of what I still haven't done, lol.

I was able to participate in the My Scrap and More Got Talent challenge this week. You can check it out here, there is plenty of time to jump in. This week the challenge was to produce a layout without using pattern paper. I was stumped at first so I looked through my stash and re-discovered my large Bingo cards and let the layout take shape. I like the end results but I would still rather have my patterned paper, lol!!!!

I would like to thank everyone who participated, you ladies made some really great guesses, shoot if I didn't make up the game myself I know there are a couple that would have stumped me too!

Seen and Noted

Love at first sight! That is how I felt when I saw this collection by Pebbles.  The colors are vibrant and fun to work with even though I hated cutting my papers, lol. I loved mixing teal with red and yellow and a touch of gray.
Using the Sketch~n~Scrap June 1st sketch I incorporated some sillhouette cuts, washi tape and wooden butterflies and fussy cut the qoute bubbles from one sided of the patterned papers. And you know what else was cool, that strip at the bottom the says "My Perfect Day" is actually the excess barcoded strip that you usually cut off and throw away, so a special thanks to American Crafts for making it usable since we scrappers don't like to waste a thing!

Be sure to stop by and check out all our card and layout sketches on the Sketch~n~Scrap blog this month as we have a lot in store for you. And don't forget, tomorrow is the last day of my Manufacturer's Challenge. I appreciate everyone who has entered so far  and especially those who made a guess, you all rock! Have a scraptastic day!
