Happy Friday ya'll! We have family in town this weekend so the posts may be randomly up this weekend just FYI.

Challenge: Out of the box. In papercrafts we use a LOT of boxes, rectangles, strips, squares. Today the challenge is to NOT use them with the exception of your photos and background base piece. Can you do that? What shape would you use? circles? triangles? Hexagons? squiggles? LOL!

Don't forget to link up here and in the gallery and praise the others.

Chatter: What is your favorite embellishment to use for girly pages? Boyish pages? Other pages? Cards? Home decor?

Wow!! What a challenge! I think I'll have to break out the Cricut to cut background pieces for this one!

My fave embellies? Let's see: for my girlie pages I love to use flowers and glitter, anything glitter! Oh and jewels! For my boys I use a lot of buttons and surprisingly, ribbon or ric-rac. I think ribbon works well on boy pages for some reason. Then if I'm scrapping something specific it might end up with cars, animals or even bugs! lol I don't make a lot of cards anymore but when I did I used a lot of ribbon, eyelets, brads and buttons. Home decor...anything and everything!! I love paint, every room in our home is painted a color other than white (except the Master bath and the laundry room, but they are getting a face lift this summer!!) I love that you can change the look of a room with just a few cans of paint!

Great challenge, will make me finally open my nesties and put them to use!

As for embellishments, I mainly scrap my 2 sons so use lots of buttons, ribbon, washi tape, and word stickers or small embellishments. I also have made pinwheels from paper!

I don't do any boy pages...I have two daughters! Their pages get lots of ribbon, flowers, buttons, jewel pieces. I also love to use word stickers.

I don't do any boy pages...I have two daughters! Their pages get lots of ribbon, flowers, buttons, jewel pieces. I also love to use word stickers.



I have 3 daughters, no boys, so I am in the same boat. But we did/do a lot of outdoor activities like camping, hiking, canoeing, skiing etc. so I get to use some "boy" colors and embellishments on those pages. (Still no use for anything with the words,"boy", "little man" or mustaches).

I never purge, and I didn't know what to do with all the baseball stuff I had accumulated here and there from kits or collections. Now dd#2 is dating a college baseball player so I have a use for that stuff, plus all the really nice Silhouette baseball themed cut files.

As much as the little girl and toddler girl photos are fun (and I am soooo far behind I have tons left to do), right now I am loving the prom and formal dance pics for scrapping. Lots of bling/glitter, flowers, chipboard swirls and flourishes etc. I have had my Silhouette about a month and I've used it on almost every page for this MayChallenge (15 done).

For today I think I will try hexagons. I have my set of 4 punches from CM from many years ago (another reason not to purge.)

My favorite embellishment to use for boy pages is circles and arrows. I love the look of the arrows but hardly ever use them, so I'll try for this challenge!

I am officially behind on my May Challenge....hoping I can get more than one done today and/or this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend with family

I've been praising it up in the gallery and I think I am a little over halfway through. You girls ROCK! I have liked and bookmarked a ton of inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

Chatter: I have used lots of dinosaurs, toy and character themed stickers and dies for boy pages. I recently bought about 5 different sets of dinosaur stickers because we spent the day at a dino exhibit so we have LOTS of fun photos to scrap with these.

For the girl pages, I use pretty much any and everything. The usual girly stuff: hearts, flowers, butterflies, lots and lots of glitter. And I have a new baby girl so I'm already overloaded on girly stuff lol

Still following along with you ladies!!

Here is my day 17 challenge. I made this page based off of a Becky Fleck sketch using mostly circles, scallops and flags. I only have a few rectangles in there.

Thanks for the challenge, this is page 26 for me since May 1st. Oh, and yesterday I made 33 kits!! Yay, now I'm ready for the rest of the month.
