Challenge complete!

Don't you hate it when life interupts your scrapping plans?!



I didn't get to work on this as much as I wanted yesterday then can you believe I had to go to work today? Anyway once I got home collected kids (from playdates/soccer) and made dinner I did the journaling and got some half-way decent pictures. (Thank goodness we're on daylight savings time and my other half is working nights) Let me just say I took Pat's idea and went a little further with it...my inside cover states "The story of "us" in a pictorial timeline". So I started with a picture from the day we became official (our wedding) and highlighted most of the years up to now. So without further ado, here it is:













I totally love how this turned out and I actually used stuff I had been hoarding!

Supplies: Bazzill Cardstock; Lil Davis Glittered Chipboard letters; American Crafts: Pattern Paper (the Metroploitan line) and Thickers; Heidi Swapp Clear Acrylic shapes; Stickles; Kaiser rhinestones & journaling rubons; Making Memories metal word tags; Cats eye ink...Prussian blue; white signo pen & American Crafts journaling pen. Oh and ribbon scraps from my stash.

I covered a lot of the clear acrylic accents with Stickles, which did slow down the process of assembly. :lol: If not for them I probably would have finished yesterday.

As I said most came from my stash but you can pickup the Kaiser rubons & rhinestones, Stickles, and Colorbox CatsEye Inks at the Scrapbook Cafe.

So after finishing this I allowed myself to tear into the box I had waiting for me from Coordinates Collections. Inside was my totally delish DT kit(...I picked "Celebration" this month) and a few other goodies....see below:





So I've got a busy week ahead, but I'm going to try to do some scrappin too!
