Some FUN challenges going on at GingerScraps

Every month GingerScraps has LOADS of fun challenges - here are a few I've finished this month...

Stephanie (aka Scrappy Cocoa) hosts a super fun template challenge every month - and I especially liked this one because it was a multi-photo template!! Here's the LO she based the template off of:

And here's my take on it! I love how this turned out (I used loads of fun goodies from GingerScraps - click on the link to get all the credits)

This months inspiration challenge (hosted by HarmonyStar) was to do a LO inspired by this photo:

The photo's dangling shells reminded me of the hanging lanterns in the GingerScraps Scrappin' Safari Collab which then inspired me to finish one of my zoo LOs - I think it turned out pretty cute (click image for all my credits!)

Misty O'Brien's "Beautiful Dreamer"

Misty has collabed up with the wonderful designer Christie Dawn of Scrapping Serenity to create this adorable collab "Beautiful Dreamer"

Misty also made some coordinating glitter styles to go with the kit!

And here's what I created with it! This is such a cute kit to work with - works well with boys or girls!

Check out my COOL calendar I made for September - how can it be that busy already??!!??! EEK!

Anyways - I created this awesome calendar with these cool templates from Teri - they are SUPER easy to work with - and not to mention SUPER FUN!! Remember to grab them this weekend when they are 25% off!

Hee hee - did you notice my calendar on the preview?!??! I feel sooo HONORED!!

And of course to help celebrate Big T going to Kindergarten - I made the calendar using this adorable kit from Kathy Winter's Designs - its perfect for all those school layouts!

"Love that Girl" by Graham like the Cracker

To go along with her "Love that Boy" Kit - Jen has decided to revamp an "old" kit (formerly known as "Letters to Juliet") and has created the beautiful "Love that Girl"! I love the pink and black in this kit!!

Of course she's made some adorable word art to go with it:

Some awesome Embossed & Worn Papers to match:

And some super fun weaving templates!

AND If you buy it all together - you get a great deal!! All of this for only $9!

And here's what I came up with! This kit is perfect for scrapping more of Ryan & Melissa's wedding - didnt this turn out GREAT?!?!

"Love that Boy" by Graham like the Cracker

I've been having loads of fun playing with the newest kit from Graham like the Cracker & Bella Gypsy. It's called "Love that Boy" and its sooo cute! I love the colors & the papers & elements (not to mention the word-art) are all awesome!! If you buy the bundle - which includes the kit, the WA, some worn & torn papers & some cute templates - it's only $10!! (a $16 value!) Check it out:

Here's the first LO I made with it: (I also used a template by MandaGirl)

Then Jen came out with the GREAT templates!! And if you "follow" me at all - you KNOW I'm a sucker for good templates!

So of course right away I had to create a 2nd page to go with my first one! Just so I could use the "Love that boy" kit again!! :) Here's what I came up with!
