First Challenge @ ScrapMatters!!!!

Hi everyone!
Hope you're having a great Friday. Mine started off a little rough....four hours of sleep had me falling asleep all day at work! But...I am finally home and doing a little better.

Sooo...I am hosting my first challenge at ScrapMatters - Roadmap to Scrap. There are 8 instructions that I have given that you will use to create a page. The challenge just begun today and will be over at the end of November. You get one point for participating and you can use any kit you like. Soo dig deep into your stash...find a kit you have not touched or come check out our new releases, which are on sale,  if you feel the need for some shopping (I always do!) and create a page....

Here's a link to the challenge: Roadmap to Scrap @ ScrapMatters

Here's the page I created using Denim Days by Creations by Rachael

Hope to see you there!

And before I leave...I made 2 pages for two sets of templates that were released today which I used to make the two pages below. Please click the images for a list of credits.

Hope everyone's Friday is going great! I know mine is...I took off work today and am sooo glad to be able to do what I want with my day. I think this has been my busiest Friday yet..finding something for Aida to wear for Halloween..having dinner with my sister and nieces and then grocery shopping...and ugh! I went in Target just to find my daughter one little T-shirt and ended up getting this: I have some exciting news....that has made me too giddy and nervous once again...I got an email that made my day 100 times better.....I am now so proud to say I am a Honey Bee at Scrap Orchard!!!!!

Wow ... wow...really? Is all I could say over and I was 12 again. So very excited to be amongst the wonderful ladies at Scrap Orchard. Lots of fun to be had :-D

Before I go...I would like to share a few pages with you.....
