Beautiful - CMS #22

This color palette from Color Me Scrappy is not the traditional Christmas colors, but the inspiration picture was.  Although I did not scrap a Christmas moment, I did scrap something very rare...  ME.

I always seem to be on the other side of the camera and end up in very few pictures.  The pictures that I do show up in, I'm picky as to which ones I actually scrapbook.  Is everyone this picky?  I feel very critical of myself.

Not to long ago, I've started an ABC album about me.  It is a work in progress, but I believe that this page will be used for that purpose.

Here is what I came up with:

Happy - CMS #21

These challenges are just flying by.  It seems that I haven't done any challenges besides CMS in a while, but I think it's been because of Christmas.  I'm looking forward to a little time off of our busy schedules so that I can accomplish some pages.

Pam and I are working on a new challenge.  We've committed to completing 50 pages before we buy anything scrappy related.  Of course, there is 1 exception...  glue.  My scrapbooking room is quite full and I need to eliminate some of the old stuff I have.  This challenge is a good way to do that.  Does anyone want to join us?  We are just getting started, so please come along for the ride.

This page is not one of my 50!

I loved this color palette from Color Me Scrappy.

The colors were just so warm and cozy.  In addition to the colors, you had to use the word "twist" or "spin" on your page.

This is my take on it.

Block Party - CMS #20

I really enjoyed this challenge at Color Me Scrappy.  Although I found the colors difficult to use, I'm glad I didn't skip this one!  I think with the muted BG, the pictures on this page really pop off the page.
These pictures were taken at our neighborhood block party in June.  Oh, and did I mention, this took place on the same day that we moved into our new house.  What a way to welcome us to the neighborhood!

I love using up old supplies!  And talk about old...  this BG paper must be vintage!
