Some LO's and Cards for the AS Croptober Fest

So, I have had a busy and scrappy weekend. I participated in the Apron Strings Croptober Fest and I got several pages complete. They are still going to have some weekly challenges for the rest of the month, so hop on over to the Apron Strings Blog and see what challenge is up next. I wish I would have had time to complete them all, but with a couple of kids with colds (and I am afraid I am coming down with a cold as well), I didn't get them all completed. I am going to share a few with you (just so you know I do scrapbook and just not make cards...lol). Everything you see here I got from the kits I received from Apron Strings Designs. This first LO is based on the sketch HERE. It is a LO of my son at Bear Lake a couple of years ago......

I've never put flowers on a boy LO before, but I love them on this one and now I am not afraid to put flowers on a boy layouts......

For this LO, the challenge was to use non-theme papers for a theme LO and I used non-winter pages on this LO of my kids playing in the snow.....

The challenge for this LO was to use naked chipboard on the LO. Now, I have never used naked chipboard before and I didn't know if I would like it, but I love it!! I didn't have to prep it in any way, so it saved me time putting this LO together. I love doing challenges because it helps me to think and use things in ways I hadn't tried before. This LO is of my 30th birthday and there is a little pull out tag under the photo (where it says notes) with journaling.

This final pic is of a set of 4 cards that I created with the scraps from the Celebrate 30 LO above.


  1. They all look great! I thought the same thing about flowers on a boys lo, then I put a few on my sons and I liked it.

  2. Each time I come here, I comment on your creations which I love. This time, I am going to comment on how much I value your friendship. You are always so supportive of me and you definitely inspire me, my Friend. I absolutely adore you!

    Congratulations on winning "Card of the Week" at 2S4Y! WOOHOO!
