My Scraps and More Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Scraps & More first blog hop!
The arrival of a new year always brings resolutions along with it. We at My Scraps & More are focusing on these resolutions all through the month of January with a crop on the forum and we are starting it off with a blog hop!

This is the order of the hop:

My Scraps & More blog

Tracy (you are here)

As you hop along to each of the Design Team's blogs you will be collecting "ingredients" to our New Year's recipe. After you have collected all the ingredients, create a layout using those "ingredients". Post a comment on the My Scraps & More blog with a link to your layout.

Layouts are due Sunday, January 8, 11:59 pm.

Tammi will randomly select a winner for the grand prize of Fancy Pants Winterland paper collection.

Watch along the way, some of the design team are giving away RAKs with their own requirements.

Happy Hopping!

My New Years resolution is to try to take more advantage of all the little moments.  I need to not let life get so overwhelming that I don't have time when one of my little ones ask to play a game or read a book.  After all "they are only young once"   Here is the LO I created.

The ingredient you must use on your LO is at least 2 different fonts in your title.  Now make sure you have picked up all the other ingredients along the hop and then lets see what you can create.  Pop back over to the My Scraps and More blog and link your LO to the blog hop post to be elibigle for that great prize.

But wait there is one more prize you can win.  I'm offering up a RAK right here.  All you have to do is become a follower if you are not already one and leave a comment below.  I will randomly draw a name from the comments at the end of the blog hop.

I hope you have found lot's of inspiration along hop and can't wait to see what you create!! 

Happy New Year!!!!

The glory of Autumn

Colorful Creations challenge was to create a Thanksgiving tradition LO.  Well we developed a new tradition a few years ago.  We now go on vacation over Thanksgiving and enjoy spending time as a family.  So I created a LO about one of our vacations.

My Masterpiece

Finally I have finished scrapping all of the Halloween photos, well at least the ones from 2010.  Haven't even printed 2011 yet.  I used a sketch from Scrap Whispers.

Spending some relaxing time by the lake!  I used a sketch from Sketch Inspiration for this LO, Frosted Designs ribbon challenge, and Scrap Whispers challenge.

Baby It's Cold Outside

It only took a little over a year but I have finally finished scrapping our trip to Colorado last year.  The boys loved the hot tub, and thought it was pretty neat that they were in water when there was snow in the ground.  I used a sketch from Frosted Designs for this LO and for the Scrap Whispers challenge.

Workout #58

It's time for another challenge over at ScrapFit!  Workout #58 is all about mini pictures.  I love the look of using small pictures on a LO, of course since I print all my pictures out in bulk 4x6 I can't do it too often since it would mean cutting a lot of things out of the picture.  But I try whenever I can.  Here is the LO I created with 3 mini pictures of my daughter Autumn at the park.

 If you are up for the challenge create a LO with mini pictures and link it up to the ScrapFit blog here.  You could be the lucky winner of this fabulous prize from Paper Lovelies.

Just an Ordinary Day

This month Tammi at My Scraps and More sent me these fabulous papers from MME.  They were so much fun to work with.  Such amazing colors and I loved the glitter look. I created this for a scraplift challenge over at Scrap Whispers.

Workout #56

It's time for a new workout at ScrapFit "Technically inclined".  That's right, we all know we are addicted to our gadgets.  Our homes are filled with laptaps, iPods, Wii's, iPads, smartphones, and numerous other gadgets.  So we challenge you to share what you can't live without.  I chose to do a LO about my camera.  My memory is fading so I need those photos to remind me of the wonderful things in my life.  And of course I need those pictures or I wouldn't be able to scrapbook.

So show us what gadget you love and link it up over at ScrapFit to be eligible for a fabulous prize from Burlap and Buttercups.

Pocketful of Sunshine

It is time for my next thankful challenge at My Scraps and More.  I am thankful for all of the scrapbook designers that give me the chance to play with such beautiful papers and embellishments.  So my challenge is to create a LO with at least 5 different manufacturers on it.  This LO was created using Paper Studio, Fancy Pants, Echo Park, Bo Bunny, and My Minds Eye.  I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursday for this LO.

Good Times

It is our month of being thankful over at My Scraps and More.  I created this LO for the challenge "I am thankful for... Good Times".  We were also required to use our favorite shape in the challenge.  For me, that is either circles or butterflies, so I chose to use both.  I used a sketch form Stuck sketches for this LO.   I also created this for the Scrap Whispers color challenge using more purple and blues.

Sweet princess

This weeks challenge at Scrap Whispers was to use the colors, blue, purple, and white.  Which I have no problem with since purple is one of my favorite colors and Autumn loves it too.  I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers for this LO.


Austin was so excited when he finally lost his first tooth.  It had been loose for quite awhile and one bite into an apple and out it came.  He couldn't wait to get it under his pillow that night and see the $5 the tooth fairy left under his pillow for that first tooth..  I used a sketch from Crafty Sketches for this LO.

My sad ninja

Last Halloween Jacob had a rough time.  We went to downtown Kilgore and he started feeling sick.  He ended up with a stomach virus for several days missing out on trick or treating and the school festival.  He felt so bad he didn't even act upset about not being able to go, he just wanted to be left alone.  I used a sketch from Scrap Whispers.
