I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

The Pink Elephant Scrapper's Challenge

Happy Monday! Today is the last day of Spring Break and we are celebrating it by doing yard work. :) We lead such an exciting life. The Pink Elephant is known for their weekly challenges for cards but they have started a new challenge for scrappers. The first challenge was to use a technique that you frequently use on your pages. One of the things I struggle with when I scrap are my titles. I don't have one of the cool machines where you can easily make a title and have it cut for you. Instead I rely on my very large basket of chipboard and stickers and stencils. For the title on this page I combined two methods. For the water I took old beach photos and used the background to cut out my letters. I adhered them so they popped up a little. For the rest of the title I used chipboard. I lightly inked them first in Baja Breeze and then rubbed the edges in Taken with Teal. Such an easy way to get a great look. The bottom journaling was done by my son, it says "When will I get there..." Almost there..." "Finally" I couldn't decide which photo I liked better so I decided to use them both, that way I didn't have to make a decision so early in the morning. (okay it is 10:00) but still. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
