Hi! the idea for this challenge was born out of a desire to help use up the scraps I've been hanging on to for a long time. Of course, i've been trying to use them here and there on lo's, but rather than watching the pile dwindle, its still growing!

This is a very simple challenge. This challenge is a challenge in itself: to use up your scraps- on every project you make- for the entire month. There's three prerequisites to this challenge:

1) use your scraps on every project you complete. The scraps don't have to be paper, they can be left over add-ons from a kit, extra sticker letters that need to be used up, bits of material from other projects...use your imagination! The project can be anything- OTP, layout, card, mini...the list goes on...
2) create a link to this page of your finished project(s), so we can admire your creativity and the work you put into your projects, and
3) leave comments on the finished masterpieces of the participants involved; in order to get love, you've got to give it first!

Last, but not least, have fun!

Participants:

1) Twinlets Mama {Alison}
2) Marcilb {Marci}
3) Nannyfeb {Barbara}
4) Scrappitydee {DaLynn}
5) Heather N
6) charcats7 (Char)

I wish I could do this challenge, because I love the heart of it.

Unfortunately (?) I work in a scrapbook store, and I have to feature new product on six to seven projects a month. I just can't commit to using scraps on EVERY project.

:-(

I'm just wondering- should this just remain an on going challenge, without posting every month, or keep it as is? Your input would be great!

Yes- he is in pain- they went to a Dr appt on Friday- doc said he could now feel the cancer when pressing slightly on his abdomen. Dr asked if he wanted quality or quantity- my FIL chose quality & so they cut his chemo in half. It's only been a couple months since they detected it- they wouldn't give an estimate of time- this cancer is rare- they just don't know. But I think he feels he's lost this battle. He spent most of our visit over 5 days sleeping. The longest he was up at any one time was an hour I think. He's an amazing man & has conquered so much over his 81 years. He joined the Marines at 16- turned 17 while deployed to China. Joined the Army after that and deployed to Korea as an infantry scout- he was 1 out of 200 of an original 1000 men in the BN he went with. After that he joined the Air Force. He's fought several serious illnesses, several heart surgeries, and now this. On Saturday after a BBQ where all my DH's siblings & their families came- as they were leaving, my FIL turned to my DH and in a low voice said "take care of your mother" and then went and laid down. He'd always told my DH he should be an officer- well he knows Cary made Warrant & even tho he didn't say it- I know he's proud of him. The only one of his 4 kids to go into the Military. And even tho we are out of state- we are the most capable to help out when they need us. Crazy. Maybe it's a good thing I'm an only child as I can't stand my DH's sisters. I hate dealing with them & their petty quarrels between them.

Anyway- enough of that- this Saturday is SCRAP Day at my house & I'm planning on getting some scrapping of scraps done!!!

hey char how is your scrap day going? hope you're having fun!

I took the girls out to our 'old' stomping grounds this morning. when we moved to whitecourt, we lived in a campground for the first six months. they have a petting zoo there and a small playground. i thought that it would be fun for them to check out the animals again...instead, they were more interested in the playground. Go figure. lol

They did have some fun feeding the donkey though, so i guess it wasn't a totally wasted trip. possibly this afternoon, they'll be making a trip to the spray park, so its going to be a busy one for us! gotta soak up the gorgeous, hot weather before the nasty stuff strikes again

just about to scrap myself- jci!!

red-white-blue card for swap By Charcats7

I used my Cuttlebug on the red & blue pieces then sanded them to bring out the white core of the paper- I so love CTMH paper because you can do that sort of technique easily. I stamped the saying and then added a glitter star to finish it off.

hey everyone, have a great evening. I might be around for a bit tonight to play. we'll see. we're off in the morning to check out monster jam- the kids are hanging out with their grandparents for the weekend. I've got monday all to myself- YAY!!! They'll be home late Monday afternoon or early evening.

I have a funny story to share: Maren was sitting in daddy's lap and she told him: I love you...sometimes

crack.me.up! I'm sure she didn't mean for it to come out like that, but how funny. we both had a good chuckle over that one

kids perspective is so funny- sometimes is the reality- we don't always feel that way and they are brutally honest- when they are 8 or so- then they will start developing a broader perspective. Then when they're 12 they'll know more than you do LOL See what you have to look forward to?

Hi everyone! ANother weekend has just flown by! What did you do?

I dropped the kids off to their grandparents', watched Ted (ahem), washed the Yukon (inside and out- and vacuumed it...PHEW!!), watched the monster trucks, watched a jet car burn another car to the ground, then race down the quarter mile drag strip, lived through an incredible thunderstorm, went for brunch with my sister, BIL, dh and mom and dad for my sisters' 30th birthday, and am now drowning here in whitecourt. We've gotten 3 inches of rain since last night (other parts of town apparently have 4).

I think I'll be canoeing if I need to leave town anytime soon! lol

Rain is good Ali, but sometimes comes too much at once. We haven't had that problem yet- the clouds are in cells and pass over too quickly- giving rain sporadically all over TN & KY - still I pray we get more as the creeks are barely trickling still....

Will have another page ready tonight (I hope)- working on the right side to the LO - have to finish the title and a few other details & I'll photo both & post. I say I hope as I'm on a new med & it is kicking my butt. I take it at dinner, and it doesn't make me drowsy then- but I could hardly get up this morning & have been fighting sleep & a headache all day. Had to take one of my migraine meds too. My brain has not been engaged to do work either- so I've been surfing here on SB.com...

Thanks Ali - I went back to the original starter dose & feel better today. Either I'm not ready to up it or it is just too much doubled period. Either way it will be awhile before I venture it again (if at all as I would rather NOT take any of it). Pain is evil & it makes us try things to make it stop that otherwise our better sense would say "are you nuts?" However- pain has unplugged our better sense so it can't interfere.

Anyway- since I'm feeling more human now- I hope to be feeling the same when I get home so I can finish my other page I'd rather be there scrapping right now & just might would have if I had the leave hours

I'm doing better today- mostly because I decided that after a week- I am NOT taking any more of that L-y-r-i-c-a stuff. I had headaches- as in migraines every day- all day for the past week. I have a bit of a headache now, but that's a lot from the storm rolling in I think- for which I may lose internet soon (rumble rumble). I have just a couple pages left to do of my 1991 family album- the END is in site- I'll be working on it this weekend as my DH leaves for Ft Gordon Saturday morning & my DS is at annual training till the 30th- so I'll be all by myself- TIME TO SCRAP!!!

It does & it doesn't for me. You might think after 22 years we would welcome the breaks, but no. I miss him already and he hasn't left yet.

Wicked storm we had last night. I was on here to catch up- had Marci's latest coming up so I could look at them and all & the internet went out. Then power flashed. We had light flashes, thunder rumbles and lots of wind with some rain pouring at times for most of the night. My younger dog, Zoe- kept waking me up- I know she wanted to crawl into bed with me- but I am not going to encourage her fearful behavior (not that she is EVER allowed in my bed anyway)- but I've learned when you console a dog, you are reinforcing the behavior and reaction. I don't want a fearful dog, so spoke to her calmly and had her lay down- she chose right beside the bed instead of her normal place & she even ducked into our walk-in closet for awhile too- but overall she did okay. Between Zoe and the storm- I kept waking up- but I'm not feeling bad or really tired- so I must have slept good in between.

Thought I'd share a picture of what my gf & I did on Sunday- made a cat tree- well, my DH & I made the structure a couple weeks ago, Sunday my gf & I stapled carpet & sisal as well as upholstering the top level. It may not be as pretty as store bought (don't look at the underneath of the levels as there is where that shows- lol) but it is MUCH sturdier than from the store. It is all from scraps- so I figured it fit here

Hey guys, well the severe weather has finally hit! we are under another rainfall warning- another 100 mm over the next few days; my home city and towns south of it (where the rest of our extended family lives) were all under tornado warnings around the dinner hour tonight. I am not sure if any tornados were produced, but its been a wicked evening so far!

Here, its rumbled off and on all day long, and is supposed to continue through the night and tomorrow. I'm not sure i'll get much sleep tonight- Kyle thinks I should sleep in the basement lol. Then I won't see the lightning or hear the thunder. problem is, i won't hear the kids, either, if they wake up. he sleeps through everything. Ha!

Speaking of, its time to get the kiddo's to bed. ttfn

Here's mine: The Flourishy paper in the corner was an awesome scrap I've been hoolding on to. The butterfly was cut from a scrap, the flowers are left over from another project and the white cardstock (journaling) was a scrap. BUT.... I have tons more...!

hey Char, fortunately I haven't heard from anyone, so I'm positive nothing disastrous has happened in any of the areas our family lives. no news is good news I'm still tuning into the news tonight to find out for sure...

JCI- we'll have SCRAP Day (a bonus for July) this Saturday- so I'll be scrapping on Saturday. I got my 1991 album done, so now to work on something else- I have got to get some current things done- need to have some photos printed of my DHs grad from WOCS in May- surprise him with getting those done- I think that would mean a lot to him. He's at Ft Gordon now- till Sept. He rescheduled the 2nd phase so we'll be able to visit CO during Thanksgiving. I'm not expecting his dad to last much longer than that. He wants to see all his grand kids- we are planning them to be there then- so we shall see.

Char--hang in there!!

Well, its finally happened. parts of town were evacuated due to flooding. We aren't too sure yet about where we stand--we aren't far from either of the rivers as well. But, for now, the RC's (Police) have blockaded the road down to the river and are keeping a close eye on it. Eek! I guess thats one of the risks you take living 'down' town- our town is spread across a ridge, and down into a valley. So if you live on the hill, you're referred to as 'up town', but if you live in the valley, its 'down' town. We live in the valley (100 year flood plain). And so far, no flooding in the house, either. Everything appears to be fine!

wow Ali- that's scary- hope all goes well. We live on a hill- so if it floods here, call Noah

Stayed home today- migraine- slept till 1:30pm yet feel as if I was up all night. Migraines are evil. Tomorrow is SCRAP Day (an extra for this month) and I hope I'm back up to par for it- I have things I wanted to work on this evening too.

cherish By Twinlets Mama

Umm, all the papers here are scraps- even the die cut the photo is matted on, except for the red card stock

Char--I learned this morning that another neighbourhood in town is on 'stand by'. a major highway runs through town, and this neighbourhood is on the other side of that where the campground (really, another neighbourhood) was evacuated. They are right on both rivers. We are still good where we are!

I call the campground a neighbourhood because a lot of the oil guys live there- the campground is full year round. Its where we lived for the first 6 months when we moved back to Alberta!

I've been thinking about you--glad you checked in! Are you gearing up to start teaching in the fall? Have you gotten a job?

Everyone else- I think I'm just going to keep this challenge open- as in, there won't be a sign up for August. We'll just continue on as is! Therefore, let your friends know about us- the more, the merrier!
