Cropped Event

This weekend I am participating in the mystery box/cropped event created by Megan Elizabeth at Above Rubies Studio and Craft-e-Corner. Several friends and I are going to gather this weekend and have our own little swarm and participate in the online challenges and classes. When we received our mystery boxes there were two challenges for us to do prior to the event starting. Challenge #1 - Create a card inspired by the "Sunset Card" from the 123 Stamp DVD Challenge #2 - Use 9 blocks from Paper Layerz paper to create 9 mini scrapbook layouts. Here are two photos of each created by me (Chignon, aka Tina) and another done by my DD (Darling Daughter) Emily. We each are participating in the Cropped Event and will be using my blog to post our entries. Challenge #1 - Tina's card
Challenge #1 - Emily's card
Challenge #2 - Tina's layout
Background on my layout...I wanted to do a page about me, and the challenge was to make mini pages on each block so I decided to make it about things I love and what makes me, me. I am a teacher librarian who loves to read, craft and I love my family to pieces, so I have a librarian, books (with apple for the teacher) photos of my loved ones and scissors. The alphabet stamps are from Megan Elizabeth (something from my mystery box)and the ink is silver StazOn metallic.The scallop squares behind my children's Sr. pictures is a Megan Elizabeth pink nesting die and teh scissor shapes are made with a Fiskars squeeze punch. The other cut outs were done with my cricut (Family was done on the Imagine) Carts used: My community, French Manor, and Out of Character. Challenge #2 - Emily's layout
A little background to Emily's layout...she is making an ABC scrapbook for her boyfriend as a Christmas gift. The two of them enjoy playing a computer game called Mindcraft, so M is for Mindcraft and some silly sayings and various characters/items from the games. The alpha stickers were part of the mystery box contents as well as the paper layerz 9 square 12 x 12 paper.
