We Scrap's Bring in the New Crop Challenges.  Ive taken advantage of these challenges to knock out some LONG over due pages for my DD.

I joined the We Scrap crop forum on Friday, just in time for a slew of challenges their hosting this weekend.  The challenges are hosted by their new crop of Scrap Team members.  Below are the entries I've complete so far.  Hopefully, I'll get some more done before the deadline tomorrow night.

 For Corinne's Challenge: A day in the life of... challenge I made this page showing a typical Spring Saturday for my DD in 1996.  I used My Minds Eye's Hazel paper and a Making Memories brad.
  For Victoria's Try Something New" Challenge I made this page, Moma's & Babies, recalling the first time my DD saw horses.  A friend took us to his equine breeding farm during foaling season.  While we were there not only did she get to 'ride' a dwarf pony (while it's baby was nursing), she also got to see a foal being born!  I used Echo Park's Country Drive paper and Thickers for this page.

 Sabrina combined her two challenges in one thread - Sabrina's "Bring in The New Crop" Challenges.  Her first challenge is to use a New Year's picture.  This LO recalls the year my DD received a ballet outfit from Santa.  While we were at her Grandparents that night she was still excited about it & was dancing around.  While spinning she lost her balance & hit her face on the coffee table as she fell.  A week later, for New Year's dinner, while it was breaking up, her black eye was still shinning away for a Shiner New Year celebration.  The paper is My Minds Eye Lost & Found; the journal tag is Fancy Pants and the gem arrow is Basic Grey.

      Big Girl Bed is for Sabrina's 2nd challenge, "something new in your life."  This pictures in this LO were taken one year later than the previous one & as does the ballet outfit pic, shows her favorite gift from Santa that year.  She was so excited at the idea of being able to sleep in a big girl bed instead of a crib.  She climbed onto it with out giving her other presents a thought.  As the day went on, she was climbing onto the bed when ever she could.  Who needs toys when Santa brings a big girl bed?!  I used Doodle Bug Designs Cheerfully Christmas line.  The word Bed! is Making Memories Felt Alphas.  I also used a Fancy Pants journal tag, misc green paper, & Stampin Up ink.

 This LO recalling the Mother's Day DD and I spent on the National Mall for the Million Mom March hosted by Rosie O'Donnell is for Lisa's Challenge #2- Something Old, Something New.  The pink paper, from Carolee's Creations is probably 6 years old.  The center flower, which is a few years old, is from Prima's e' line an it's sparkly center is by Making Memories.  The background paper and frames are from My Minds' Eye Quite Contrary Jack & Jill line.
 Using My Minds' Eye Quite Contrary Jack & Jill line along w/flowers from My Minds Eye Lush line & Die Cuts with a View cardstock, I made this LO for Victoria's Scraplift Challenge.  My DD was SO PROUD to have dressed herself.  Why she put her bathing suit on is beyond me.  I just love that she put it on backwards.
My Darling lovely Angel was made for Lisa's Challenge #1- One Old, One New.  My DD was first in a church Nativity performance in 1998 as a cherub.  Her most recent role in 2010 was once again as an angel.  This time she got to 'herd' the cherubs on and off stage and serve as THE angel sharing the good news with the shepherds while on stage.  For this LO I used My Minds Eye Lost & Found papers, white & pink Stickles, Making Memories brads and shimmer alphas.


  1. blue, just remember, per rules of the wescrap Bring on the New Crop challenge, you have to have 50 blog entries in order to be eligible to win, in addition to entering your pages.

  2. Whoa, I skimmed right past that part of the rules. I just read it and think it may not mean 50 posts on my blogs, but 50 posts on We Scrap - which I assume means comments on threads and such. Hopefully that's the case, since that's doable. :) Thanks for the heads-up!
