Happy Day

It's a very happy day - especially since I spent it at my scrap desk! Here is one of the LOs I did based on one of Tabitha's sketches over at Let's Get Sketchy. I went way outside the box - I didn't really feel like cutting a bunch of circles so I used squares instead!

Stars and Stripes

This has been a crazy week of events! And of course every day life is bleeding into my scrapping! Here is a LO I did using Vintage T I got from Scrappin' Goodtime store and retreat.

Go Camping!

Our 2nd Camp-Friendzy challenge is up - hosted by yours truly! You know you want to earn your Campfire Songs badge!

You can't go to camp without learning all the fun songs! Our favorite is to do "Singin' In the Rain" during Rec and for the Rec leader to soak the kids with the hose!

So this challenge is simple - you must use your favorite song (or lyrics) on your LO - it does not need to be a camp song! My current favorite song - much to the dismay of my BF and son is "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus - I know... I can't explain why but it is! Here is the page I made of DH and DS at a Superbowl Party - how much more American can you get than a football party!

All LOs must new for this challenge - then post them in the Scrap-Friendzy gallery and link them back here! If you complete this challenge by Sunday June 24th at midnight you will be entered to win this weeks Camp prize!

Make sure you post in the "Badge Me Baby" post to let us know you earned your Campfire Songs badge because the "Camper Of The Year" will be determined by who has the most badges by midnight on Sunday, August 19th OR in case of a tie, we will do a random draw.

So go dig out your Ipod - pick your favorite song and get scrappin!

Keep on Hiking!

Welcome to our Camp-Friendzy Blog Hike!

I hope you are enjoying the hike so far! If you have just popped in here and would like to participate you can ho back to the start of the trail here.

For those of you that want to attend Camp-Friendzy (beginning Monday, June 11th), you can earn your Blog Hike Badge by commenting on all of the stops. Then go over to the forum and let us know in the "Badge me Baby!" section and we will add the badge to your signature!  

If you have no idea what Camp-Friendzy is and would like to join us for some scrappy summer fun you can check out the Camp Friendzy section in our forum - we'd love to have you join the fun!

Here is a little something I whipped up for your viewing enjoyment on the hike! We all like to make crafts at camp to take home so here is an altered frame I made! (IRL it will be a Father's Day gift for DH) I started with a simple 5x7 acrylic frame I purchased at the Dollar Tree. Then I got out a pic of all my boys on our trip to Colorado where we went on some of the most beautiful hikes we have taken as a family! I used pp and embellies from the BoBunny Etc. collection that were just perfect for our outdoor adventure photos - the papers and photo are inside the frame and other embellies are mounted on the outside - such a simple, fun and inexpensive project!

Just in case you get lost along the way, here is a map of all of the Blog Hike stops:

Stop #2: AMY'S BLOG 
Stop #5: SANDY'S BLOG 
Stop #7: TAMMY'S BLOG (you are here)

I hope you've been seeing some beautiful scenery on the way! Make sure you check in and earn your badge - the more badges you earn the better your chance to win the Camp Prize! For those of you kind enough to become a follower and leave me some love I will also be giving away my own little camp prize! You have until Sunday June 10th at midnight CST to complete the hike - have fun!

Busy Days

Why does May always have to be so busy!? It seems like it is just non-stop go, go, go! Luckily tomorrow is the last day of school and Saturday we will be leaving for vacation. So I was finally able to steal a few minutes worth of scrappy time tonight. This project is based on a sketch by Tabitha over at Let's Get Sketchy. But I wanted to create something a little more out of the box - so I put my LO on a record!

In order to have a chance to open the big gift you must pick up the sketch from the My Scraps and More blog and then pick up some party favors along the way. You must use the sketch and 3 of the party favors on a LO for a chance to win the big birthday gift. Share your creation with us by linking your LO up to the blog hop post at the My Scraps and More blog. 

So what's a party without streamers! If you choose to pick up my party favor you must use some paper or ribbon strips on your LO! Here is the one I made, I had trouble getting a good photo of the foil tag but it says - Nobody's perfect - I am nobody!

So finishing hoppin' and get croppin'! Make sure you link your LO back to the original blog hop post for a chance to win this big gift! The new Authentique Celebrate collection!

And as an added bonus I have a goody bag for anyone who becomes a follower of my blog and leaves me some love! Hope you enjoy our party! Now head for Aubree's blog to see what she has for you!

It's almost gone!

I can't believe it is March 31st, one fourth of the year is over! Not only that but tomorrow is the twins birthday - and they are going to be nine - where is the time going!? I finally had some time to scrap today, but I am fighting a lack of creativity. Luckily with some new paper in my stash I managed to crank out this LO based on the March sketch from the My Scraps and More blog.

The fun officially begins on Easter, April 8th, but for those of you who can't wait, we will have some precrop challenges during the first week of April! Spread the word then head on over to play! And there is still time this month to get in some Seusspired challenges - you have until midnight CST on March 31st to complete any of them for a chance at the March grand prize!

Sunday, March 25, 2012


I can't believe we are already in the last week of March! One quarter of the year is already gone! What they say about March is has held true for me - in March my scrapping came in like a lion, but is going out like a lamb! We have been so busy with sports and other obligations it seems that there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all the nothing I want! Regardless I have been pushing through and trying to get several LOs done in whatever moments I can steal away in my scrap room. Here is the latest one I did based on a great sketch by Tabitha over at Let's Get Sketchy:

Be Seusspired!

It is another challenge day over at Scrap-Friendzy and it's my turn to host a challenge. We are celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday all month long and my challenge today is inspired by the book Horton Hears a Who. If you remember the story Horton does everything he can to find a safe home for the Who's! All the other animals don't believe that there is a tiny town full of tiny people living on a tiny flower being carried around by a giant elephant - hence my challenge! Create a LO with things big and small! I have big and small pictures, flowers, stars and buttons. So go and be Seusspired!

Spring Break

I am so glad it is finally here! I love not having to get up at the crack of dawn to get kids ready for school. Especially since we have sprung forward, it is now dark when I have to get up but at least I have a week before I have to do that! I am working a couple days and I have my awesome nephews and niece with me for a few days so I don't see a lot of scrappy time happening in the next couple days, but here are a couple LOs I did yesterday!

This one is based on a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy

And a couple lifts from My Scraps and More

Get Your Game On Blog Hop!

Welcome to Scrap-Friendzy's "Get Your Game On" blog hop!! Our DT will have lots of inspiration for you this weekend! The hop will run from now until midnight (CST) February 5th.

But this is not your average Blog Hop! We're gonna throw in a little extra fun with a Touchdown Challenge! At every stop on the hop, you will be given a special "ingredient" from each DT Member. Your Challenge is to take any 6 of the "ingredients" and complete any ONE project of your choice!! If you are feeling confident and think you can make that extra point, use 7 of the ingredients and you will get 2 draws. Simply upload your project in the Gallery and link it back to the "Get Your Game on" blog hop thread in the forum to be eligible for the Grand Prize AND earn 25 bonus Friendz Pointz in the month of February!

Don't forget: This BLOG HOP is just the beginning and there will be challenges all through the month of February for your chance to be our next Girlfriend of the Month!!

So on to the hop! I am a HUGE football fan - if the Cowboys are playing it will be on at our house, if is Friday night - we will be under the lights cheering the guys on and of course if one of my guys is playing I will bounce back and forth between cheering and hiding my eyes! So if you are watching the game you have to know how to spot your favorite players - which means knowing their number! So my ingredient for you is to add numbers to your LO! Here are a couple football LOs I have done to give you some inspiration!

I can't wait to see what you create! Remember your LO doesn't have to be football themed, it just has to contain the ingredients from the sites on the hop - 6 for a touchdown and 7 if you are going for the extra point! Then make sure to link your LO up to the "Get Your Game On" thread in the forum.

Here is a list of the Design Team members blogs in case you have gotten lost.
Scrap Friendzy Blog
Tracey S
Tracy R
Tammy - you are here
Chris - next stop

And.... If that's not enough fun for you - everyone that leaves a comment on blog and becomes a follower will be entered into a drawing for a RAK! I will post a winner on Monday Feb 6th. Game On!!!

I have been trying to expand my scrapping to include more LOs of family, friends and even myself and not just scrap my boys and my niece all the time! Here is a LO I did of DHs cousin and his wife. It is based on a sketch by Tracey over at Scrap Friendzy and I added a banner for the current challenge over at Burlap and Buttercups.

A New Year

Well 2012 has arrived. I'd gotten so busy toward the end of the year I neglected my blog and my scrapping, but I'm back at it! Here is a LO I did for a challenge over at Scrap Fit to use the lyrics from "Love is a Battlefield" for inspiration. It is based on a sketch from Brenshevia over at the Colorful Creations blog.
