Scrappy Thirsday Strikes again

I wanted to complete a lot of challenges and that I did.

First up is Julie Bonner's 52 sketches. I loved this weeks sketch. And it was very handy as Scrap Whispers was requesting hand writing on a LO. Awesomeness.

The LO was further inspired by GotMojo? asking us to be a super hero. However I didn't actually complete their challenge as I couldn't bring myself to tear something on this LO. I really felt the clean lines were the thing to do... what do you think?
Next Mothers and daughters
requested we use an old Julie Bonner Sketch. I went for #28 from 2008. I love this sketch. I have done it twice now and twice I really like to LO.

The picture on this sketch is from Scrapjazz's photo challenge to get an "eyes" picture. I had not done that before and dang I think it's terrific. So happy to get it on to a LO.

Adding to the fun and challenge of this LO I took on the BASB challenge to use only one peice of patterned paper. No card stock, no nothing paper:O Words can not express the terror I felt looking at my picture and my sketch and trying to choose just one peice of paper. To be true to the challenge the title is Grunge Board, felt ribbon, what looks like a rub on is actually a plastic sticker, buttons, thread, and I drew the waves on. There are some Skittles in the felt ribbon but they aren't visable in the picture.
Anywho... triple dipping is like bad behavior. It's taking advantage of the system or no? I'll take opinions on that too. I love how each challenge puts something new and interesting and different into my book... I oddly enough like the results better when I hit a couple challenges.
Last but not least a single challenge entry.  HA.  This sketch intimidated me, but I did it anyhow.  I don't know what was harder paper without embellishment or embellishment without paper.  The sketch is from creative scrappers.

I seem to have a lot of pictures in these groups of 3, I might use this one again... that is if I can ever get caught up on all the lovely current challenges out there on the world wide web.

Speaking of uncompleted challenges, I haven't touched my whisper from Scrap Whispers.  Janice (my one up) died suddenly while the lift was in her possession.  I am having trouble touching it.  She was a really lovely lady who said lovely things to every one.  I didn't really know her and yet I miss her.  I will try to at least open the file and look at it tomorrow.  I need to get it done there is a whole team minus one lovely lady waiting/depending on me.

For some reason I can't seem to make the text sit next to the pictures I want it to sit next to so I am going text first... pictures second, hope you don't mind!

Toodles for now, CJ
