Gettin' scrappy with it! (long post!)

I'm tellin' ya I think I've scrapped more in the last month than I did in all of last year!!! Being over on the All Moments Remembered message board has truly inspired me. I love all the challenges an crops. We really are a close community. So friendly and uplifting. Aug 9th was the online crop. We had until Wednesday to complete all the challenges and while I didn't get them all done, I did pretty good. I even completed the ones I didn't get to with in the time limit. This first one is not from the crop but from a weekly AMR challenge. IT was to do a monochromanic LO. I really love the way it turned out. I actually added a journaling card to it in that blank spot on the left side. I just forgot to take a updated picture.

These cards are from the AMR crop. We had to make a Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Winter card.
This crop challenge was pretty hard for me. In actuality I don't like this LO right now. I'm going to change a couple of things and then I hope it will be better. I think mostly it's the title that is just buggin' me.
This challenge was to use stitching on a LO or card. Most of us took the easy route but Melonscraps really rocked it. Check it out on her blog!
Ugh! The iris folding challenge! I had the hardest time getting a proper sized template for this thing! Once that was taken care of it came together pretty easily. I might try it again if I ever feel the need to fold paper for hours on end! lol
This challenge I loved!! I didn't quite make it in under the time limit but that was okay with me because I love this LO! We could only use two different sheets of coordinating pp and card stock. The only exception was the title. The whole thing had to be tilted and it had to have at least a paragraph of journaling. (mine is under the photo. It's a bit personal.)
This one bites too but I did it with 15 minutes until time was up! LOL We had to either make a acrylic album (Melonscraps was the only one to do that) or use a acrylic tag on a LO or card. It was actually really easy and I'm sure I will try it again some time.
This was for Melonscraps challenge. I love how this one turned out!
Can you keep a secret? The photo in this LO is of my Grammie at her 75th b-day party. I was supposed to do a album with the pics and still haven't finished it. She's 80 now! Doh! I want to try and complete it for her for Christmas but I just have such a hard time scrapping that way!
This was for Chris' challenge. We had to do a interpretive design. I didn't do the challenge right but I still like the LO! It is 8 1/2 X 11 for my "All about me" album. Even thought I don't have a actual album that size yet! LOL
This is definitely one of my favorite LOs from the crop. Jessica wanted up to use memorabilia (she used some fancy word for it.) on the LO. I used a fan that we got at the Clark Co. fair the week before. I just ripped the stick off of it and used my StazOn to die it brown. Kinda did this one for my mom too since she is a new SU! demo and all the product on this page is SU!.
This next one is not from the crop but again one of the weekly challenges. We had to use Red and green but not on a Christmas LO. I think it turned out pretty dog gone good!
Oh and here's some cute kid action!
He's playin' his geetar!
On the bus going to the fair. He loved being on that bus! lol He kept telling us everything we were passing like we couldn't possibly see it without his help!

Your projects are all awesome! Thank you too for the sweet things you wrote on my blog. They were really nice! We have to have a crop soon, maybe we could crop for my birthday in September, since I'll have a couple of Saturday nights off in September.

You did a fantastic job! I never got around doing any challenges; I hate that.
