My girl friends and I are taking turns issuing challenges. This challenge was to use some our scraps from our stash, dry or wet embossing and a technique or tool that we had not ever used before. I decided to use this challenge to make a prayer box. I needed a prayer box for a member of my Sunday School class. I pulled the papers from my stash of used paper. I dry embossed the sentimemt box on the top of the prayer box and for my technique, I haven't done a box like this before, so I used this as a new technique. I'm a bit late in posting, though I completed the project six (6) days ago. Sorry ladies, I'll do better with posting next time.

- Hi. Welcome to my site; my name is Karen. I'm an avid scrap-booker, card-maker, and paper-crafter. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years and I am just as excited now as when I first started. Scrapbooking is the instrument I use to record some of the greatest and most special moments of my family’s life. I love buying patterned paper, ribbon and embellishments, taking pictures of my son, teaching scrapbooking and hosting workshops. This hobby continues to be an obsession for me and it continues to challenge me to be a better scrapper. I love the escape that scrapbooking affords me and the fun it has brought into my world. I have one child, a son; he's 15 years old and he is my favorite scrapbook subject. I hope that you enjoyed my site and will visit again soon.

Our team challenge was to create a shaped card, using polka dots, bling and ribbon. I think I met all the criteria and had a blast doing it. I created a high top tennis shoe card and added my favorite embellishments, ribbon and bling. There's a special 3 year-old little girl that I'll be sending to. I hope that you'll enjoy this as much as I enjoyed preparing it. TFSB, Karen

Hi there my fellow scrappers: Well, we decided to do another round, so here's the sketch for round 2 of our challenge. We used Karen Giron's sketch from the The Sweetest Things weekly sketch challenge. Below is my interpretation of that sketch. I really dug in my stash; the flower is my Heidi Swapp flower stash from a couple of years ago. The button is from my "button craze" stash and the dimensional pearls used to fill the center of the button are as old as the button. This was a fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
I, along with some of my scrapping girlfriends, have started working on bi-weekly challenges. We're trying to use our stashes, work on our creativity and for me, play with my new Silhouette, so that I can justify the purchase. Well, anyway, the above sketch from Valerie Simon was our first sketch. Below is my version of the sketch. Thanks for stopping by,
