All about Julia!

Happy Monday!

This week, I scrapped about my girl, Julia. After all these hockey pages I've done, I needed to do some pretty scrapping! ;) And as luck would have it, 2Peas had CHA challenges this week to help me along. I was only able to get two of the challenges done, but here they are.

First up was the colour challenge. We had to use yellow-orange, gray and teal.  Oh how I love these colours! And the Lily Bee Buttercup collection is full of yellow-orange, gray and teal. *sigh*  I did find the teal paper in the collection too blue, so I swapped it out for the teal chevron in their Head over Heels collection. I love it when companies make collections work together.  An added bonus is that very old journaling card. I thought the heading worked perfectly for the subject of this page.

Papers & Stickers: Lily Bee Design; Diecuts & Punches: Tim Holtz Sizzix Die, Fiskars Punch, Martha Stewart Punch; Alphas: My Minds Eye, Cricut/SCAL; Misc: Teresa Collins gem brads, We R Memory Keepers twine, rhinestones, stapler, paper clip

The other challenge I completed was the Christmas in July. But, I doubled up my challenges and also used this week's Glitter Girl challenge to use a challenging paper from your stash.

I am so happy to use this old Basic Grey paper. It  sat in my stash for years because I couldn't figure out how to use it and I didn't want to cut it up. It was just too pretty! And now  all that is left of this collection are a few scraps of paper, a couple stickers and some alphas. What a good feeling!

If you've never seen Glitter Girl videos, you need to check them out here. It will change the way you scrapbook. I know it has for me.

Papers: Basic Grey, Bazzill Basics; Alphas: Lily Bee Designs, Basic Grey, Thickers; Misc: twine, Echo Park camera
