Scraplift/Tag Challenge at the Guild

Gosh ... where does the time go, I thought I had just updated this blog only to find out it was two days ago...boy oh boy, I tell you. Well, I did a really fun challenge over at the is a Scraplift Tag Challenge, and was part of the Artisan Notebook "Learn by Lifting" article, it was alot of fun to do and the information in the Artisan Notebook was soooo helpful, inspiring and just an overall cool tool to refer to!!! go check it out here and then when you just love this challenge go check out how to become a Guild Member!!! Well, back to what I was saying, I did this challenge and one Layout I started was a scraplift of Amson's (Carolyn) sweet LO "My Little Birdie", well, I started it but got stuck on the title, I just couldn't figure out how to do it...I knew I wanted the Bass to be in the Typewriter Font, but then I wanted Solo to go over it and everything I tired just over powered the I kept putting it away thinking something would click finally, well guess what, inspiration hit in the middle of the night, yep in my sleep I worked it out and came up with this:

Inspirations from Amson's "My Little Bird"

So that was the May Scraplift/Tag and yep always late, but I got it done :D YAY!!! So then Debb did the great article in the Artisan Notebook that was based off that tag game and came up with a different LO to lift and it was of gonewiththewind's LO "Shine" , well I really wanted to use Amy Head's awesome kit "Southern Comfort" along with some "Bling" or is that "Blang" southern style, and so I added some glitter from the June 2008 "Bohemian Bling" Guild Membership kit, along with some other goodies, and this is what I came up with:

Who am I!?!

Well, being on the Guild Creative Team we were asked to create a LO about reflection, it was wide span on what we wanted to reflect upon in our life, and I decided to reflect upon "Who am I!?!" Man it was hard to get started but my friend Christy (Crafts and/or Happy 2 Day) gave me a bit of inspiration and it just flowed between that and the Postage Stamp Class by Mary Jameson from the ended up being alot of fun, from taking the pics with my new remote to putting the LO all together!!! Here it is:

It's been awhile...eek!!!'s the first of the month, and just like Christmas. Being a Digital Scrapbooker and signing up for the Membership kits is just like Christmas to me. A few days before the end of the month I start to anticipate that time when the 1st rolls around...and then I'm lucky because being that I am on PST I get to open my "pressie's" before the strike of midnight on the first. YAY!!! So anyways, I posted that I made the Creative Team at the Guild, well because of that I was able to play with the kit a bit early (check out my new blog header and avatar) and here is one of my lst LO's I made with the June 2008 "Bohemian Bling" Guild Membership Kit.

You Sparkle My Life
