Scrapbook Playground's second sponsor this month was Paper Trunk. Their Wrangler line is cute and perfect for boy pics, but I found it versatile enough for girls too. Especially the yummy yellow patterned papers (which is a color I don't scrap very often). Here are a couple of my favorite LOs. Come on over to the Paper Trunk Gallery and check out the rest of the DT's creations. There's plenty of inspiration to go around.

Crop 'Til You Drop

That's what I did this past weekend. YMBD had a super fun on-line crop this past weekend. I managed to get a lot accomplished with their pre-crop challenges, games and a ton of fun challenges. I finished up my DT work early for Scrapbook Playground so I had plenty of time to play and the deadline for uploading entries was not until Tuesday. I ended up getting 12 LOs, 1 mini-album, and 9 cards done. I think that's the most I've ever done at one time.

Here's a couple of my favorites:

Don't forget to check out Catherine's Etsy Shop at YMBD. She's posted new goodies and I've already added them to my wish list. Oh, and she's having this great So You Think You Can Scrap contest. So come on by and upload your entry, it promises to be a lot of fun with some great goodies being handed out at the end.

Use Your Stash Blogspot

This month's challenge was to dive into our stash and use chipboard. Easy enough - I may have cornered the market on chipboard. Especially all of those cool Technique Tuesday frames. I've had them for well over a year is my guess and had hardly used them. I finally broke them out and honestly I barely have any left. Guess I need to go get more. Right? According to Kimmie and Corey - prolly not - use what I have. LOL!

I did 2 LOs for this challenge. The first is my absolute favorite. I adore this pic of my daughter at the beach this summer. I couldn't believe that I caught this pic at just the right time. Here they are:

But you need to head over to Use Your Stash to see more amazing inspiration.

Sponsor - Cosmo Cricket

This month's sponsor at Scrapbook Playground is Cosmo Cricket. They have some really bright vivid papers. I usually do tons of LOs with my DD, so this month is totally dedicated to DS. The papers seemed to fit him to a "T". Come check out the gallery at the playground. Here are two of my favorite LOs.
