Monday

The new ScrapTiffany challenge is up and running. The challenge this week is to use scraps. I didn't want to cut into a single full sheet of paper, so I decided to do a 6x12 LO. I also had a picture that I wasn't using of the palm tree in our backyard. I had a scrap of sticky backed canvas and stamped a leaf on it. So all papers were scraps. I have an open file that I use for my scraps. In the front is a 12x12 celophane bag that I put the scraps from each project into and then every once in a while when the bag gets out of control I file them by cardstock and patterened paper and by color. Here is my take on the challenge:
Be sure to stop by ScrapTiffany and check out all the other takes on the scrap challenge. Also if you take the challenge be sure to email Tiffany for your chance to be chosen as the guest designer next month.

Finally, we took the kids to the outdoor mall on saturday night to play in the splash pad. I was attempting to use my zoom lens, but it is not a fast focusing lens so I took about 100 photos and only came up with a couple of cute ones:


But without the zoom I wouldnt be able to get close enough to get any at all (with the water spraying everywhere) so I am happy to have those few.
Have a great week!
