Good evening Peas! How many of you got "caught up" today? I hope you were able to get SOME scrappy time in this weekend!

I will be out of town for part of this week so I am going to put these up all at once! Take your time and enjoy!

MONDAY August 5: SKETCH DAY! I love this one, it has lots of places for TONS of photos or embellishments or journaling. It is a grid but you could change it up by tilting etc. Make it your own!

TUESDAY AUGUST 6: Color is so essential to this wonderful hobby! It conveys moods, thoughts, feelings, movements and so much more. But sometimes we get too bogged down in all the choices so today let's take it all away EXCEPT ONE color and ONE neutral! That is it, let's see what you can create! I consider neutrals to be white, cream, kraft, black, grey and brown. So any of those coupled with ONE color (can be multiple shades of color) but only ONE color to make your creation. Let's see them!

WEDNESDAY August 7: Stamp me! We all (or at least the majority of us) have some type of stamp (foam, clear, wood, homemade) laying around but if you are like me you forget to get them out and USE them. No excuses today, USE them! Get them on the creation directly, make embellishments with them, pop them up, layer them, whatever you want. Just use a stamp somewhere on the creation!

Chatter: Let's talk mess ups that worked out (or maybe they didn't). What is the craziest thing that has happened while you were creating? How did it turn out? Did you throw the creation away? Did you let it be? Did you fix it? Was it something you did or someone else? Tell us your silly oops stories!

For Monday's - is that a double LO or anything that has 16 squares and some journaling?

(Crystal, didja' notice I made it through the entire first week AND being new to this site without a single dumb question???)

Sharon, take the sketch ANY way you want it, be inspired to make a layout, use the squares on a card, or just use it as a grid somewhere. Make a two page, one page, card whatever, just see where it takes you.

And yes I noticed, very proud of you! LOL!

Oh boy! Great challenges to start the week.

Can't think of a mess up that worked out at the moment.

But my family would tell you I am notorious for messing up my titles and labels. I have used a place in my titles a couple of times only to have them point out we were somewhere else.

And my nephew corrected me when I labeled a fishing lure as the one he was using when he caught his first fish - it was the replacement lure.

The thing is - I take tons of notes and I usually keep the notes with the photos but sometimes I just zone out when I'm making the page LOL.

I do go back and correct the titles or other errors but one was in a mini album and I didn't fix that one.

I had a happy accident on my dinosaur page for day 2. I was too impatient to let the ink dry on my wood veneers and tried to apply some rub-ons while it was still wet. I was sure I had ruined them (they wouldn't transfer) so I tried adhering them with diamond glaze, backing and all. It worked! I'd say I screw something up at least once every 3 pages. I'm always ripping my pages apart. lol.

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head are journaling mistakes. I have a tendency to misspell words and simply cross them off and write the correct thing next to or above the mistake.

I am not perfect and neither are my scrapbooks.

Oh yeah! A new sketch! Yippy! These challenges are great! I hope you have a great time on your camping trip Crystal!

I didn't get the chance to catch up this weekend so I'm still at 2 pages done for the month, but I have pages laid out for challenge day 2 I've just got to figure out how I'm gonna make it work!

Mistakes on LOs...yeah I make them all the time. I usually don't plan out my journaling before I do it so I often run out of room in the space I've left for myself or I make spelling mistakes. I'm not too great with embellishment clusters or layering so I'm making lots of mistakes as I'm learning to do these better. It doesn't bother me too badly, mistakes are a sign of growth so I just roll on to the next project. I can't really think of one that ended up working out so much that I loved it, but that's OK. It'll happen one day!!

Love the sketch and the other challenges!! Have a great trip Crystal!

My biggest goof is always journaling errors too. Sometimes I try to cover them up but I mostly just cross them out and write the correct thing next to that. I figure it doesn't have to look perfect!

I did get one page done and will try to post it later.

I wouldn't know half the techniques that I do without all the mistakes I've made. Several of my favorite finished projects are artfully disguising big lessons learned the hard way! I remember when the Distress Stains first came out; I never bothered to watch a tutorial on them because I just figured they were like any other "stain".. wrong! Three bottles of Aged Mahogany, two trips to Michael's,$15 and a whole lotta' frustration later I turned out an awesome cigar box by combining the misused stain with a black paint over/wipe off and my swap partner loved it! I never would have thought to wipe away wet acrylic paint if I hadn't messed up the stain. Live and learn!

A bit of a spin on my CADA for day #5. Finally used a TRINKET BOX that I've had for 2 years.

Two recent mess-ups that come to mind: 1 - had stapled the HS mint acrylic letters & numbers to a page & didn't realize I had put 2102 for the year until I went to post the pic; easily fixed by removing staples & re-attaching. 2 - just got the PL Cobalt kit & had chosen the single 4x6 end card for a pocket page of new years for my ds book, went to use some old rubons in white on the blue bg & the 2nd one ripped the paper; ended up covering that 1/2 the card with a SC stitched notebook paper tag & writing on it. Needless to say, the rubons went in the garbage. lol.

I didn't get a layout done today but I did get one double & one single done yesterday, as well as a couple of pocket pages; so in total 6 for the wknd & 8 for the month. Hopefully I can keep it up!

For the "mess up" it is scrapping a set of pics twice. I totally forgot I had already scrapped a certain vacation because I had not put the pages in the year's album. I reprinted those pics and scrapped them on another four pages. It really annoyed me because I have so many unscrapped photos.

Anyone else every done that?

On journaling I always try to name every person at least once in any given layout. Sometimes I have left people out, which bothers me later. I try to put their names in later on the journalling block.

I posted my Day 6 project but the pic isn't real good. It's a birthday gift for my daughter in purple/black which are the colors of her bike. It's one of those generic book boxes they sell @ M's that I altered. Day 6

sophikins I have done that! Actually I do that quite a bit lately since I do PL too and sometimes the pictures overlap but the stories are different. Does that help? LOL! Hugs!

We had a BLAST and are all so tired that both kids have taken TWO naps today! WOW! They are paving our road so no one in or out. We have not even got out of our jammies and it is 3pm LOL! Lazy day! I did get a page done while they were napping so I will get that up shortly!

Can you all believe tomorrow is ONE week done!? WOW! How are you doing on your "goals"? How are the challenges? Any changes?

Glad to hear you guys had a great trip Crystal!

I can't believe we are 1 week in! I am so far behind already! I hope I can get some scrap time in...I have this idea in my head and I really want to see if it will work on paper!

I think the challenges are great so far! Keep 'em coming!

Hi Team CADA! Keep up the beautiful work. I'm so inspired, I've completed 5 layouts since August 1. I'm tech challenged so I'm not able to upload any pages, but sending praise your way. If I miss anyone, charge it to my eyeglasses, not my heart. I encourage you all and thanks Crystal for the inspiration.

P.S. my latest oops was writing the wrong word in my journaling spot, so I wrote the right word cut it down to size and glued that baby down to cover the oops. I'm not stressing over my imperfections, nope, not doing it.

I'm happy you had a great trip and had a chance to rest. Those nap times are great for at least getting a LO started (not to mention chores).
I'm looking forward to the next challenge adventure.

Welcome,Scrap2bless. I''m hoping you'll get help uploading your layouts so you can join in with the challenges. Can you get a photo of a layout onto your computer? I'm not that savvy myself, but I know one of us can walk you through it.

Scrap2Bless, I have done that MANY times and then I just randomly do other words like it so it LOOKS like I meant to do it! Hey I figure LIFE is not perfect so why should our creations be, right?

If you need help uploading let me know. I could probably walk you through it if you are on a PC (don't know much about MACs sorry!) WELCOME! I am glad we are inspiring you! They inspire me too! I love all the takes on the challenges, it makes it so fun!

I posted today's challenge: DAY 8 CADA
