A Productive Weekend

Helen Hancock introduced me to a while ago. It's a digital scrapping site (Blog, Shop, Forum, Gallery... and more). I popped in there 'now and then' but never really got involved. This weekend I jumped in and entered "a challenge" and posted my work in their gallery. I was totally hooked!! It's a good thing that Boyd does the cooking at this house or we would have starved.

The CHALLENGE was to make a digital layout using Sue Cummings Week 16 materials from her '52 Inspirations' kits... the word was"EXTRAORDINARY"!! So I created a layout and then another and then... well, you get it! Busy, busy, busy as Eloise would say.
(All materials used were by Sue Cummings... for further details check my gallery at

1. Boydo at a fantastic ice cream parlor in Phoenix AZ... 'Mary Coyles'. 2. Wendy at her Kentucky Derby Wedding Shower last Spring.
3. My first encounter with a dog in 1944.

4. Kristin running the Oshkosh Marathon in rain and sleet... but still a smile!

5. Wendy and Kristin with best friend Jennifer after the wedding ceremony... crashing for a moment. Love this photo!

I'm planning to post on my blog each Monday. So look for me here on that day. I'm planning on following a format of Art, Books, Movies, and Happenings each week. Today I wandered away from my plans as I wanted to share my new relationship with O'SCRAPS. I know I've found a new home there. YUMMERS!!
Love to you all!

Awesome layouts, Joni! Your posts have so inspired me that I've actually registered for a scrapbooking class which begins this coming Saturday. It ought to be fun and now I'm pondering what pictures/theme with which to begin. An idea is incubating in my head, so maybe I ought to just go with the flow and do it.

Helen said...

YEY!!!!!!!! *loud applause*

I am so PROUD of you!

You go girl...see you at the O!!

Wendy said...

Wow Joni these are Fantastic. O'scraps is amazing, I also love it there. I'm truly stunned by your layouts! Great job!
I've been wanting to do the challenges but have been unable to upload to any of the galleries there, sigh! I was given some more fixes for the problem so I need to try again. Maybe I can get out of this scrap rut I've been in for over a year, lol.
Thanks for sharing and the inspiring work!

These layouts are absolutely STUNNING!!! I especially like the "girl" one from the wedding! ;)

Christine said...

Welcome to the club!!! The 'O' is a great place to hang out and you couldn't ask for a nicer group of people! LOVE your lo's... exceptional work, girl!

Let me formally introduce myself...

I'm Christine aka cmnb. I've fell into digi scrapping just over a year ago and unlike you, I am the cook around here so there have been some touch and go moments where the hubby or the kids have come to me saying they're hungry! I'm a little less addicted now.

And as for the picture on my blog... I wish I looked like that! That really is a pic of A. Jolie. If you go to the Photofunia website, you can upload your photos and they'll merge them with they're photos. There's some neat things there.

Looking forward to seeing some more scrap pages!

Have a great weekend! :)

I love the paislee press kits at oscraps. I have a couple, but unlike you, I'm still stuck with paper most of the time. I've been in a real rut recently--can't seem to get anything scrapped! You continue to inspire!

Great layouts. I wonder how you manage to fit so much into your life. Who does the dusting? Vacuuming? Gardening?

What you're doing seems much more fun!
