Meeting My Scrappy Goals with Challenges...

I'm feeling pretty scrappy lately and even though I can't post everything I've been working me it feels good to actually get supplies and immediately go to work with them! Yay for Scrappy Mojo! I made this little card based on a few challenges...

Supplies: Sketch: Mojo Monday; Digi Image; Alicia's Crafty Corner; Stamps: Docerela Creations- Be Mine, Smash *it; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper- Farmhouse; Mistable: Studio Calico; Film Strip: Tim Holtz; Glitter: Ranger Inc.; Ink: Hero Art, Prima; Mist: Dylusions, Studio Calico; Markers: Coppices

First off I used this week's sketch from Mojo Monday...

And, I also used one of Alicia's Camera girl digi to for my third entry into her awesome "Anything Goes" Challenge HERE! I was  terribly afraid of digital images and coloring, but after playing with Alicia's images all week I'm really inspired and want to learn so much more about coloring with Copics, Promarkers, and colored pencils!

Well, I hope that the scrappiness continues so that I can reach my goal of actually using my products (especially since I've been on a scrappy binge since last month- Yikes!) and going through my stash to actually see what I have instead of just using what's on top of the pile! Oh and the current challenge HERE at Simon Says Stamp and Show made me think twice about my paper selection- at first I reached for my new Crate Paper line that I received last week to complete my card, but the challenge is to use an oldie but goodie, so I dug into my stash and pulled out an older line of my beloved Crate Paper- Farmhouse! I also dug deep into one of my little random scrappy bins and found my TH Film Strip Ribbon which I haven't used in forever! It's so cute!  Glad I found it!  LOL! 

And speaking of oldies but goodies...the current challenge at Mema's Crafts is to link up your favorite project from 2012! Hmm...I think THIS is one of my favorite 2012 projects! This little shadow box that I created for Docerela Creations Summertime Stamp Challenge in June was so fun to make and display....

Well crafty friends, thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh, and don't forget to play along with the Challenge at Docerela Creations; which is to use red or pink on a new project! So, be sure to check out the challenge HERE and link up your projects!!! Can't wait to see what you make!
