scrappy thursday and some exciting news!

Hello everyone! I have tons of scrappiness to share, but first I want to share some exciting news! I am now on the creative team for Ormolu. I can't tell you how excited I am about this!!! Kaitlin seems so super nice and she has some fantastic designs that I am really excited playing with:) I am also really stoked to work with the other girls on the team. A lot of them are designers I greatly admire...this is gonna be fun!
In other scrapbooking-related news, My Scrapbook Nook is running a *really* awesome special right now. You just commit to 6 months, and you will get the May kit free. Pretty cool, right? HERE is a bit more info...If you are wondering what will be in June's kit, it will feature Lily Bee Picket Fence.
If you do sign up, let me know so I can get a $5 credit, hee pressure;)
okay, now onto projects. You know there was a big virtual crop last weekend at the nook and I has sooooo much fun creating and participating in the challenges! Here is what I created:
This was for a challenge to use die cuts, so I pulled out LOTS of yummy Jillbean Soup die cuts/journaling sprouts for this one...

This card was made in response to an inspiration photo that was posted. I used the March My Scrapbook Nook kit for this:)
This was for a shaped card challenge. I traced one of the kiddie plastic bowls;) I used the April My Scrapbook Nook kit for this!

This was for a challenge to pick a shape and run with it...can you tell which shape I chose, ha! This was one of my favorite things I produced over the weekend. I am pretty obsessed with the Crate toy box line...Shel, YOU need this. I can totally see you using it for Matt pages.

This challenge was to use at least 5 brads and use a non-human photo, lol. I like this page a lot, maybe because I used the May MSN kit?

I also used the May MSN kit for this one...this challenge was to use white/negative space. I think I am finally on board with the mist thing...I had lots of fun adding little sprays to my layouts.

This card was for a challenge to use cream/white as a neutral, one color in different shades, and one color in little bits for pop. This is one of my favorite cards as of late:)
This was for a layout to layer at least 5 layers of patterned paper. If you know me, I am not that big of a layerer, but I think I stayed pretty true to my style here. Oh, and I finally cracked into my Echo Park Summer Days pack, exciting;) 
p.s. Shel, this is a 12x12 page;)
p.p.s. check out today's echo park blog post to see this layout there too;)
Another page using the May My Scrapbook Nook kit, and this was a sketch challenge.

I also used the May kit for this page. This challenge was to create a page in less than 45 minutes. Being the dork that I am, I timed myself and ended up with 38 minutes and 12 seconds;) This was the first page I misted on for the crop and I think I did too much, but I learned from this and tried not to go too crazy on the other pages. Doesn't A look teeny here? It was about 2 years ago when these pictures were taken.
I made this page for a challenge to use silly or non-traditional pictures. Yeah, I am obsessed with baker's twine...SO? ;)
This was for a challenge to use dots and stripes. I love this picture of K-man. Is he *really* going to be 2 in a week? Still working on freezing time;)

This was another one of my favorite projects I did over the weekend. We had a picture of a quote that we had to be inspired by, and this is what I came up with. I really really like this quote with the picture:) I used the April kit from My Scrapbook Nook for this.
And Candi-I finally used my glittery KI words-go me!!
For this challenge, we had to be inspired by the Into the Wild movie poster. I also used the yummy April kit for this one;)
This was a challenge to lift one of the member's pages that was chosen...I again used the April kit;)
I created this page earlier in the week last week, but it was for my blog post on Amy Mattes Designs, featuring the Happy Digital Clip Art.
This was for a card challenge on the Nook to create a card with a bicycle on it:)
Phew...are you with still, ha ha??!!
Tomorrow I will be playing catch up with a big ole photo friday post:)
