Spend my Life

This month the  hosted a "Sista Challenge A Sista" Challenge...
Leialoha issued me the following challenge:
Create a Layout using
- 3  black and white photos
- 3 words for your title
- 3 monochromatic embellishments. Yes, that's right, your embellishments (and you must use at least three) must be the same color.
For this challenge I used my wedding photos and wedding colors as inspiration...
The journaling is words from the song "Spend My Life by Eric Benet & Tamia which was sung at our wedding.

Our wedding colors were Dark Blue, Carolina Blue (Go Heels) & Silver... I used the dark blue as my monochromatic color, light blue and silver as my photo mat and accent colors. My embellishments were ribbon, prima flowers, brads, and a chipboard flourish (Home Decor)... Glimmer Mist was used to make the colors coordinate.


One of this month's challenges over on the was to create a
Fall or Halloween Layout... Here is my take on the challenge, although I still need to add a picture I think it turned out pretty nice...

Miss U Much

On October 3, 2008 my Dear Aunt lost her long battle with breast cancer... Although, she has been gone a year, not a day goes by that we don't think of her and we all miss her terribly... In her memory, I created "Miss U Much" thanks so much to breadesi9er from the Cricut MB for the inspiration... Click on pic for larger view
Ladies, Please take care of yourselves... get your annual exams and don't ignore signs of trouble

Scrap Corner

I don't have my own scrap room YET... I occupy a corner of our TV/Game Room... soooo when Michaels had their craft storage on sale for 50% off I took advantage and invested in a few Jetmax storage cubes ( 9 to be exact:-). The cubes were surprisingly easy to assemble and even easier to load with all my supplies...
Now that everything has its' own place, scrapping is so much easier and I spend less time looking for things.
