That time of the month - again!

It's the beginning of June, and another month of ScrapGal challenges and contests! We have a contest going this month called the Craft Fair with lots of sketches and other cool contests, including a merry-go-round - be sure to come over and join in the fun and prizes! The above layout was done based on the sketch for the Fun House contest - Mandy did some great sketches so be sure to check them out each week . My layout is done on Prima paper with Prima alphas. canvas shape, and laces.

Our manufacturer of the month is BoBunny so go to your stash, dig out some BoBunny, scrap it, and post it in the ScrapGal gallery - you might just be our winner!!!! Here are my 2 BoBunny layouts:
the top one is done on Back to basics paper with Delilah rub-ons and hand cut outs from a page of Delilah paper. I colored the plain alphas with copic markers.  the bottom layout is on Back to basics paper with a painted Glimmer chip scroll that I cut into pieces. the flowers are cut from a Trader Joe's shopping bag.

And now ----- the  June 1 challenge Razberry Dazzle in honor of a past Lollipop Girl. Check out the color palette - really funky with raspberry, lime, black, and white
My layout is done on Stampington paper with some older K&co chipboard butterflies and sticker along with a handmade ribbon flower and a Kiki arts bling-y heart - so perfect!  Be sure to check out Lynette's latest kit offering

Hope you are having a great week!!!! I am feeling so much better and have been super creative this week - unfortunately I can't show you much of what I have created right now but soon.......... I will say that I have returned a bit to my fabric roots and have been playing with copying photos on fabric-paper so look for some different things coming out of my studio in the near future.  I have also been avidly knitting on my blade scarf and it is really starting to look like a leaf - I will take some close-up pix very soon to share.
I am also listening to Glass Houses by Rachel Caine - the first book in the Morganville Vampire series. Chez recommended these to satisfy that "blood thirst" and so far I am enjoying this one - our library has quite a few of the books in the series so I should be good to go for most of the summer.

I will be back this weekend - I have a busy time the next few days - tonight is our Art club meeting, tomorrow I get my teeth cleaned (I hate going to the dentist!), Sat work at the gift shop, and Mon go to the doctor for a check up. Next Thursday I start a new painting class with many of my artist friends - so looking forward to that!

Thanks for reading and
