Sketch Challenge Layouts

During the DSD weekend, I noticed at midnight, Sweet Shoppe Designs Facebook page would post a 24-house sketch challenge, for a chance to win $15.00.  Seeing as they were usually posted around 10pm, my time, I had plenty of time to scrap late at night, rather than during the daytime.
 
I am excited that I scrapped all three sketch-challenges and I really love how the layouts turned out!
So if you were counting, I did thirteen layouts for the DSD Bingo Challenge and 3 layouts for the Sketch Challenge, bringing my total to 16 layouts completed from Saturday morning through Monday evening.  Like I said, I don't think I've ever scrapped that many layouts in such a short timeframe!  Now to hunker down and do something off my computer for a day or two to give my fingers and hands a break from the computer!

Well that is about all I have for you today.
Just a few layouts, but a whole lot of beauty for my album!
 
 
 

Day Three

I really milked Day Three of scrapping.  I had a lot to do, a lot of catching up and the biggest thing to do was homeschooling.  While I love to scrap and design, my children are number one.  I spent a good portion of my day homeschooling my children.  I really only homeschool the middle, where I follow the state's guidelines of homeschooling.  However I work on pre-school with my three-year old.  He's so hit or miss, but he's learning!  Just today he showed me the letter "N" and was picking out all the "R"'s in a sentence. 
 
I've officially completed all twelve layouts required to put your name in for the $100.00 gift card to Sweet Shoppe.  I'm really hoping my name is picked because I have a ton of things in my wishlist that I'd love to clear out and scrap in my future layouts.  If not, I love my layouts that I've created this weekend and am glad that I sat down and scrapped.  It's been a while since I scrapped a dozen layouts in 72-hours!

And if you are counting thirteen layouts, that's because I goofed on one of the layouts and told Libby that I would do it correctly, even though she said it wasn't necessary.  If I win, I wanted to make sure I won fair and square without cheating.  I just wanted to do it right, so the last two were the ones that I goofed up and the replacement for the goof!!
 
Whew, that was a lot of layouts!
What did you scrap this weekend?

Day Two

Whew, I'm starting to get tired from all this scrapping, but I'm almost done!
Just two more layouts to scrap tomorrow (Monday) and I'll be good to go to enter my name for the $100.00 gift card raffle to Sweet Shoppe Designs.  *fingers crossed*
 
Here's what I scrapped today, which isn't bad seeing as we were at church all morning and then came home to lunch.  It was after two when I sat down to scrap today and I never thought I would complete what I did, but somehow it happened!!

Only a couple more layouts and I'll have completed the Expert DSD Bingo Challenge.  I cannot wait until the challenge is done, but I'm having fun scrapping and just enjoying the whole festivities of DSD weekend!  What are you doing?

DSD Weekend = A LOT of layouts

This is the first of many years that I've been available during Digital Scrapbooking Day weekend.  I was able to look at the sales, not do a lot of shopping since the budget is tight with us just buying a home, but participate in a lot of games in hopes to earn free product along the way.
 
Then I found the best deal, scrap 12-layouts and be entered in a drawing for a $100.00 gift card to their store.  While I know I have horrible, that might be understatement, luck and I won't win, it was still worth it to give it a try.  By the end of the weekend, I'll have put my name in the pot for a $25, $50 and $100 dollar gift card to their store as well as entered three sketch challenges for a $15.00 gift card.  *fingers crossed* It's been a while since I've been able to purchase new products and I'm starting to use a lot of the same products from my current stash! It's time to add to the stash!
 
Let me share with you the layouts that I made during Saturday:

Happy October

I'm back a day later with new releases!  Say what?!  How awesome is that!  Not only is Neverland Scraps store 50% off but I have a new buffet collection for you too!!
 
This month's color swatch had me inspired by Disney and the sunset/sunrise at the park. It's such a magical vacation already, but once the sun starts going down, the lights, the beauty and the fireworks that follow are magical!  I was truly inspired by Disney and created Let the Magic Begin
