Finally a scrappy weekend

I will promise you nothing!  LOL  When I promise that you will be seeing more posts, it generally does not happen.  So if you see a lot from me in the next few days, shhhh...don't make a big deal out of it and jinx it.

One of my Design Team members from Counterfeit Kit Challenge does these wonderful blog events!  Lots of inspiration, ideas, challenges and even prizes.  Head on over to Jennifer Grace Creates to take a look.

This weekend is her Onwards and Upwards Blog Event!  This is also the weekend that Billy has offered to do all housework and cooking and just let me relax and do whatever I want.  What I want is to scrapbook, so here I am.

Jennifer has issued some challenges this weekend that I have been working through.  I thought I would share some with you...

A Challenge to go Up, Up, Up!
I am a roller coaster junkie and have high hopes that my kids will be the same.  We have a good start with Collin, but Isabel is like her dad and prefers her feet on the ground.  This was their first fair ride.  It only went up a little ways, but it was HUGE to them.  They ended up loving it.

To Be Inspired
I am a very visual person, so pinterest is ideal for me.  I love all of Jennifer's boards on pinterest and while I was browsing, I spied this sketch on someone else's board.  That inspired this layout (and the older one I found stuck in a drawer).  The photo isn't great...and Collin's head is cut off, but I love the look on his face.

Today is Beautiful
I loved Jennifer's notebook project.  Yellow has been very prominent in her blog this weekend and it looks great!  She did great with all of the layering without adding too much dimension.  I did quite a bit of layering on this card, but it is still very flat and easy to mail.

I'm off to see what else I can make.  I'm on a roll!  LOL

Awesome Bethany! You really are on a roll! I especially love the card, those big flowers are gorgeous and the 'hello' tab at the top is so fun!

Love the 'Going up' layout too, especially the cloud paper and the gems. I used to love rollercoasters & rides but I can't go on them anymore as I get a sore neck when I get jolted. Your kids look like they were having lots of fun though!

Thanks so much for entering the challenges! x

You have been busy - love how you have used Jennifers ideas and made them your own. Enjoy the rest of Onwards & Upwards.

What a gorgeous notebook! I love it! And I love the layout with the red and the banners too. Its been such a great couple of weeks for inspiration and I just want time to stand still so I can gather my thoughts and get glueing! Thanks for visiting me as part of the hop.

Yay for you getting to scrapbook!! It looks like it went well - love the bling and buttons scattered on your pages. I must go see what Jennifer is up to as well.

Great lyouts and card! I love to scrap older photos, too-probably because I love to look at pics of my kids when they were little. Gets me all nostalgic. ;) Thanks for sharing-can't wait to see lots of new projects blogged. Jinx! :)
