Ideas and Inspiration

A company that I've been familiar with for a long time, SRM Stickers, has been having some great posts lately totally inspiring me to scrapbook and make cards!  I've liked their page on Facebook, and I encourage you to do the same.  SRM Stickers Check them out and get a little inspiration for yourself!  Here are a couple that caught my eye:

 These adorable projects are made not with stamps, but with the SRM Stickers!  I think they're really cute and quite cost effective. 

In addition to the fabulous inspiration, they are running a contest on their blog.  They are asking their FB fans to refer people to their blog and let them know who referred them.  The winner gets a prize pack.  :)  So...if you're feeling generous with your time, or your curious to see more inspiring projects, head on over to their blog SRM Stickers Blog, check out their projects, and leave a comment telling them, "Peggy Stolley sent me." I promise that if I win, I'll post some kickin' projects on this blog to share with you.

Thanks, friends!

I Have Been Busy

Well this weekend was pretty busy for my scrapbooking. First is another Pencil Lines Sketch that you can participate in too. Connie creates a wonderful sketch then you use it to design your own page. It takes the "hard" part out of scrapbooking which is deciding how your page should look.

So here is this week's sketch

And here is my design.

I made the other side of my Blue Bunny Ice Cream store visit. The first page I did was for the Page Maps Challenge.

All of the elements from this page are from My Memories.

So, that was a lot of fun. If you would like to participate in the Pencil Lines sketch challenge visit her blog at Pencil Lines at the bottom of the post on her blog is a link that you click on to upload a jpg of your design.

I am trying to earn a place on The Digital Scrapbooking Studio Creative Team by entering their month long competition called Layout Artist Competition 2011. I made it through the first round with the layout shown below. After I signed up they gave me a download to get the kit. Everyone used the same kit. So, you had to be in the top 40 to move on and I even made it in the top ten....barely! So, thanks so much if you voted.

The kit we used was Early Morning Light from Piggy Scraps Designs.

The second round layout needed to be uploaded to the gallery by midnight tonight (Sunday) and the voting starts tomorrow. Here is my layout.

This time the kit we used is called Afternoon Delight by JW Digiscraps. It was a fun kit but when you do a lot of boys pages it is hard to use a lot of flowers. I hope I made it work. You can see the other layouts here. Mine is called "Work is Fun" and my user name is mjjames.

So, I would appreciate tons of votes. Here is how you get there.

If you are not a member of The Digital Scrapbooking Studio Forum you need to register first. You can do that here.

Once registered you can click on the link below and it will take you to the thread. Look for "Week 2 Voting" or something like that and click again. (this link is not up until tomorrow so I cannot tell you exactly what it is called).
Once there you can vote on your five favorite layouts.

"The Layout Artist Competition 2011"

If you take the time to do this I would be so grateful. I need to make it in the top 20 this week. The voting is Monday and Tuesday. Then you will be all set to vote in Round 3. Yay! In round 4, if I make it that far, only the current administrator and Design Team vote and the top 3 are chosen.

Anyway, hopefully I will make it through another round and will be moving on to round 3.
