Playing catch up or catch me if you can or something like that

First of all, I want to show you my layout for the Candy Shoppe Designs March 1 challenge (you still have plenty of time to enter) - it is to go green and recycle something - I recycled the green mesh vegetable bag. The prize is a really good one - from the etsy store WILD OLIVE KIDS - definitely check it out!
I did this layout for the March 10 Crop Spot at Scrapbookingsuppliesrus using the March Sampler - don't you just love that Dear Lizzy Spring paper (sigh), the cool Prima stars, the Hambly overlay (I cut the borders off of a frame), and the Maya Road journaling card. The kit actually has Dear Lizzy alphas in it but unfortunately American Crafts didn't ship them quick enough for our DT kits so I used some old Jenni Bowlin alphas.
And for Scrapgal, we are celebrating the 40 days up till Heather's 40th birthday and the challenge for this week is to scrap your teen years or the 80s - I picked the 80s - this will be another page for my mini constructed of Prima packaging. Be sure to come over and check out our contests and challenges - we have some fantastic prizes this month - Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts- really awesome!!!!!
This layout is for our year-long on-going challenge to scrap top 10s - March is 10 things to do before you die so I picked 10 places that I would like to visit before I die - I read travel books and cookbooks about places that I would like to visit so I piled some up and took a pic. The expatriates page is one I scanned from an original Banana Republic catalog that I have - back from the days when BR was pretty much all mail order - I loved their clothes - and then they started doing stores and they were so cool - they looked like stores in exotic places - sigh - can you believe that I still own and wear a long sleeved top and a silk chiffon scarf that I bought way back then! Ah, memories........Back to the layout, you can see that I am obsessed with those Hambly frame transparencies. LOL!
thanks for reading and hope you find some time to join us in the challenges. Have a great weekend!
