Crop Projects

Well, the Totally Tubular crop at A Walk Down Memory Lane wrapped up and I am kind of bummed because I just couldn't squeeze in any of the challenges. That's what life as a sports mama does, I guess, and I am happy to sit and watch my kiddos play sports they love! The announcement of the Queen of the Crop will come today!

I did post 2 challenges for the crop based on a couple of my favorite TV shows for others to participate in.

First up was my Sesame Street challenge. I don't think I'll ever outgrow watching an occasional Sesame Street episode here and there, LOL! I was so amazed the last time DD decided she would watch it that the theme song had changed a bit. Very hip, I must say.

So my challenge was to create a LO with numbers, letters, and at least 1 monster.... bonus kudos if you could make it fuzzy.

He Calls Him Melmo

I just love this picture of my DS when he was just a toddler. He adored everything Elmo, but couldn't quite say Elmo and always called him Melmo! I adored how he would say it and don't ever want to forget this sweet memory.

I made my red monster fuzzy by adding some flock to it with glittering glue and of course what's a monster without some googly eyes, so that was a must as well!

I used up lots of scraps and bits of this and that for this project including stuff from Basic Grey, Sassfras Lass, Studio Calico, bella Boulevard, and October Afternoon.

Next up was my Extreme Home Make Over Challenge. This is the only show I make sure to watch on a weekly basis and we do it as a family. My challenge was to include something you would buy at a Hardware store on your LO.

Geared Up

This was DH getting ready to head into the batting cages one day this summer. I thought it was a perfect photo for grunging up a bit and playing with some Hardware Store finds.

The gray mesh like stuff is some sort of tape and the black strip with holes is too. That became black after I actually used it as a stencil with some paint for a different project. I grunged up the photo just a bit by using some distressing ink and the papers are We R Memory Keepers.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember to head on over to A Walk Down Memory Lane to take advantage of 25% off this month's featured manufacturers: Studio calico and Woodware Stamps!

God Bless and Happy Scrappin' ~ Scarlett
