am i officially a scrappah now?

egads, MORE photographs inspiring me to do more stuff with 'em. i made ONE card all weekend.

this one was for a "use your scraps" challenge in my Cafe Mom group (although it wasn't a crop challenge). we were to use scraps of paper and punch like it was goin' outta style.

this is Rainy Day Fhiona, from Your Next Stamp. i paper pieced the front of the brollie, and her hairband, coat and boots. Fhiona just reminds me so much of the Powerpuff Girls (love them!). i went out for hallowe'en as Buttercup one year. :) i seem to have a thing for hanging onto my negatives when i punch or use my cuttlebug. i'm on a mission to use up all those negatives!

we were also challenged (this time for the crop) to do a ROUND layout, using only 3 colours. this is another first for me! i'm no stranger to the colour restrictions, natch, but a scrapbook page that's ROUND?! INSANITY, i tell you!

and yet, i'm totally enthralled with this one. it's very me, and representative of a very important time in my life.

i was working on one more for the crop last night, and at 10:40 i checked the challenge post, only to realize that i'd already missed the deadline. that was probably a blessing in disguise, as i'd been struggling with a title for too long, and i'd have been up for another three hours trying to put it together. instead, i hit the hay. :) i'll post that one today (assuming i am able to GET a title for it!) - the new Design Dollies Elements Challenge will be posting today, so i'll be back to share the deets!
