Challenges Challenges

Challenges, challenges!! Love them - they MAKE me create! It's so easy to collect my scrapping supplies and not use them - but all these sketches and challenges just call my name and beg me to make use of that inspiration!!
This one again, is a two-fer! I know if you read my blog on any kind of regular basis you find that I use Apron Strings Designs kits ALL THE TIME!! I adore them! Well, I joined the ASD Yahoo group and they challenge you with a sketch each month and to obviously use their kit! So, on that note - here's my version of the June Kit.

It's also a challenge over on the Savvy N Sassy ribbon forum. This particular challenge was to "cut up" your patterned paper. I cut the butterflies out of the new Chatterbox papers that came in my ASD kit!!!

The flower border at the bottom is one of the new QuicKutz 12" border dies. The brads are CTMH and the "balls" that make up the butterfly bodies were purchased at my local Michaels. The title, which goes over the two pages, would read CONGRATS if these pictures were side by side! :)

Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you again soon.

Hey Vicki! I'm starting to think you're not getting any of my emails, even from the blog. I made posts and sent emails 6/13, 6/16 and 6/17. Did I get in your junk mail folder?

I thought I'd try commenting you to see if it helps.

Hey Vicki!
