Finally, LOs I can share!

I've been working on Design Team applications for awhile now. 2 down and 1 more to go. Which means that while I've been scrapping my little heart out, I've not been able to share anything I've done. Taking a break and scrapping for myself has felt so good!

This first LO is for a challenge at A Cherry On Top. I belong to the Hockey forum there and since the season is just about to start, that means it is time for our annual hockey pool on the mb. Everyone who plays picks 2 teams and hopes to have the most points at the end of the season! I ALWAYS go with the San Jose Sharks, but my 2nd team varies. This year I picked the Penguins. My friend Leslie, who runs the pool, decided that this year she's going to throw out some challenges along the way. #1 was to pick a team's colors and scrap a LO using those colors. Now, since I'm a Sharks girl all the way, I chose their colors:

The 2nd LO is for a challenge over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. September's Scrapbook Play challenge was to create a LO using NO photos. For me this was a huge challenge until I went to my friend's band's CD release party/show. It was near impossible to get good photos, but I wanted to scrap the event. So, I grabbed a flyer, my ticket stub, and the cove of the new album and put together this LO. Add some Maya Road cb tree branches and some new Jillibean Soup corrugated stars and I think it turned out really well!

Time Flies!!

I can't believe that Halloween is just around the corner! I have been so busy this summer that I really don't know where the time went! Between working a lot and being apart of the Leadership program at work, I have not had a whole lot of creative time. And what I have been doing, most I can't share yet as it is for DT calls, and a scraplift challenge over at A Cherry On Top. We are playing "telephone" only with LOs. Since I was one of the first to go, I can't wait to see what the whole chain of scraplifts ends up looking like!

I did get to go to CKC San Marcos last weekend and had a blast with my Texas Girls! We took a bunch of classes and had so much fun! I even won door prizes in a couple of the classes, and in the Vendor Faire (which I did some damage at LOL!) I wish the trip could have been longer as I don't get to see them very often, but I am grateful for the time I did get. So many laughs!!!

As soon as I am able, I will post the LOs I've been doing for the calls. One has closed (the team should be announced tomorrow), one closes this weekend, and another next weekend! Whether I make it or not, I am proud of myself for even taking the chance to apply.

In non-scrapping related news...only 14 days til the NHL season starts! :)

Save the Date!!!

I can't believe it's time again for another {SAS}sy crop!!

Mark your calendars as Scrap Attack Scrapbooking shares a weekend of hope, friendship and of course {scrappin} to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month.
