some pages to share!

I participated in the virtual crop at My Scrapbook Nook last weekend, and I got a TON of pages done!! It was so much fun and I got some pages done that I may never have completed due to the challenge prompts. I ran out of 12x12 kraft paper so I had to get extra creative:) Here are the projects I completed:
The challenge for this one was to scrap a group picture and include the year in the title. I scrapped this picture of me and my brothers and sister at Thanksgiving in 2009. Can I tell you I love that Martha Stewart heart punch??!
 The challenge for this layout was to use up some older stash. I used some Basic Grey Sultry, remember that? When I was looking through all of my papers this weekend I realized I have too many and if I haven't used them yet, I needs to purge I think I am going to do a giveaway soon when I finish going through my stuff:)
 The challenge for this one was to use a vintage picture and use the words treasure or timeless in the title. I used this picture from Halloween 1989 and journaled about how my Mom always made all or most of our costumes:)
 For this challenge, we had to scraplift a member of My Scrapbook Nook. I lifted this layout by Ginger Williams.
 This layout was for a challenge to scrap a piece of your family history. I used this picture of Brynne, my Mom, my Great Grandma, my Grandma, and me. you remember those couches guys?!
  The challenge for this one was to scrap one of your family's favorite places. It was a toss up between this and Disney, but I went with Eastern Lake. I am pretty sure if you have been reading my blog for awhile, you will remember seeing some posts about Eastern Lake:)
 For this one we had to make a name tag...Aislynn wants me to make one for her, hee hee:)
 For this one, we had to scrap about a home or a place that has impacted us or feels like home. I used this picture (sent to me by James that was taken with his phone-thanks man!) and journaled about my Mom's house.
 The challenge for this page was to not use any patterned paper-eek! I used some background stamps and watermark ink to make my own patterned paper with cardstock. Oh how I love this picture of A:)
 For this one, we had to scrap how many people were in our family, plus add some texture. I used the crochet flower for texture and this turned out to be one of my favorite pages to date! I love it!!
 This was to scrap something strange or quirky that someone in your family does, so I picked how Kieran only likes to have one sock on:)
 These challenge for this one was What's in a name so I scrapped how we picked out Kieran's name and what it means.
 The challenge for this page was to make a project with a monogram. I did this one with K:)
 This one was to use "wood" or trees and I used woodgrain paper. I like the design a lot for this one...simple and clean:)
 The challenge for this one was to interview a family member. I scrapped the questions I asked A on her 5th birthday.
 And this one was to scrap a page using a song title with the word family in it for the title. I used a song by the Ramones, but the lyrics aren't so happy:( Good thing we just had to use the title:)
Guess what? I won the grand prize for participating in the crop!! I am so super excited because it is 2 entire collections by Cosmo Cricket and it's their stuff that is just coming out...not even available to buy yet, woo hoo!! I am so grateful!!

Sooooo, that is it! I think I am scrapped out for awhile, ha ha. Actually I am supposed to be getting a birthday package of scrap goodies today, so maybe not;)
