I am a Pickle-Addict....

Thanks to my friend Libby and her awesome challenges/contests @ Scrapbook Doodle ! January's was so much fun to do... even if we did have to post something we created the 1st year we scrapped!! LOL!

Here's the challenge:

Here we go again ladies with a super challenge for you from Rusty Pickle!!!! I started thinking how we always say Jan. is the month where we say "Out with the Old... In with the New"! It is a month where we always focus on changing for the better. I think we wll have been doing a lot of that. So.. here is my Challenge for you this month!: **Find a layout from the first year you started scrapping. (tee hee... this is going to be fun! ) **Then I want you to re create it..and make it a 2 page layout! **It can either use the same pictures... or a simialar sketch...or the same theme or what ever. **I want to see how your style has changed over time! **The older layout you choose to restyle can either be a one or two page layout but the one you are creating must be a two page layout! **Remember to use 80% Rusty Pickle Product!!.. They are sponsering this contest!

My Original:

My NEW creation:

Tell me what you think....

I had a blast creating this month!!

I hope you are well... tell me what you have been up to!

I off to put my things back in my scrap room... Bob installed some upper cabinets in my scrap room this past weekend.. I have to organize now! Pictures to come... I promise! ;)

Hugs and Blessings!

Project of the week!!

I made this fun "Party" mini album by Bo Bunny ! It was a blast to play with too! I used the awesome January Kit from Scrapbook Doodle...more yummy Bo Bunny products! I created a little "step by step" on how I did it and how I added fun extra pages! You can check that our here!

Scrapbook Doodle Creative Team Projects

I am so excited to share my 1st projects for Scrapbook Doodle ! I am in LOVE with the January kit too!! It is full of yummy Bo Bunny products that are perfect for Jack's 5th birthday party photos! Here are 3 of my projects... my last one I am adding the finishing touches to and will load soon!! LOL... I just couldn't wait to share these!!

So, what else have I been up to since my last post? Well, cleaning up the house from Christmas and getting all the decorations put away for one. Back to helping in Jack's classroom on Tuesday mornings its so much fun! Processing the many, many photos I have taken over the holiday and still a few from Jack's gymnastic party! Also, I scanned 4 old photo albums for my friend Barb! Which was a HUGE job... 255 total scans and I will be restoring and/or altering most of them! Although this is a big job it is so fulfilling. I know what this will mean to my friend and their family!

Today, we have 2 birthday parties! Jack's good buddy Jack R. is turning 6 and having a bowling party... should be a total blast! Photo and scrappin' opportunity for sure! And, my Goddaughter Katie turned 7 on the 10th! We are having a family dinner! So, a nice fun Sunday for us!

I hope you are enjoying whatever it is that you and your family are doing today!

Hugs... and more soon!
