Scraps to Treasures

What a beautiful day here in Southern California! It was about 78 degrees with sunny clear skies! I could see the snow-capped mountains of Big Bear, as well as the picturesque, Catalina Island! We spent most of the day outside - dining and shopping in downtown Brea. It was too nice of a day to spend inside the studio, so only took about a half hour after church this morning. I set out to meet the color challenge at Embellish Magazine, and then decided to also incorporate the Scrap-tastic challenge at Nichole's blog, Capture the Moment. Below is the scraps I started with.



All of these little cards were made using scraps, except for the card base of this first one, but since I didn't cut a new sheet of cardstock, I guess it would be considered a scrap, too?? All of the cards were made with PTI's Pure Poppy and Sweet Blush. The Black and Colonial White are from CTMH. The first card is a standard A2, and the other two are 4x2.5 (because that's what size my scraps were).



This last one also incorporated the sketch challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You, only I missed the deadline. Bummer! I was busy yesterday helping my husband clean out and organize the garage, so no blogging time.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
