The winner for this week is SnappyScrappy!!!!!!!

Congrats!! Please peamail me your name and address!




Prompts will now be open for two weeks!

I've decided to host a bi-weekly (twice a month) challenge thread here at Two Peas. The more you play, the more chances you have to win a small scrapping goody from me (and some others who are donating prizes!!) and the more pages you will get done!

Please link up your creation in this thread for a chance to win and I will also have a challenge box you can check during the upload process.
Look for **Stash Busters Challenge**

**You can combine all these prompts. Each prompt you use is good for one chance to win...so use 3 prompts on one layout = 3 chances to win!***

We all like to get comments on our pages so if you are playing along please try to find the time to return the favor!


**********************************************************************
Deadline for these challenges are MONDAY May 6th by 11:59 pm PST

PROMPT #2

Use this sketch to create your layout. Sketch is from April PAGEMAPS

Page by a scrapper named Gloria



PROMPT #3

Use this layout by Susan Stringfellow as inspiration.



I love the design and the film strip and the cameras and the fluffy kitty!

Also it's part of an Echo Park/ Hampton Art blog hop. Her blog is here if you are interested.... creatively savvy

Another great set of prompts!

You won't (or possibly will) believe this but I did all the prompts, but since the weather here has been so grey and rainy I've been waiting for a fine day to upload them, d'oh!
Never mind will get on with this challenge and upload the other ones too, am really enjoying uploading these days, so it's all good!

@Marianne. . .what happened to the first hexagon layout you had posted earlier?


I had to resize the second layout with the arrows but otherwise I haven't changes any of the layouts.

I'm glad everyone likes the hexagon idea. I sat down this afternoon and made a very hexagony looking page. I'm guessing that I will be sick of them after that!

When I get home tonight I am going to fit in some scrapping. I am so excited about this week's challenges but am time challenged this week. I take photos for both my grandkids soccer teams (action and team) and they had so many games the last 2 weeks that I have lots of photos to process and upload for the kids and parents.

Congrats kiwijesta!

And Marianne - these layouts are awesome! I love me some hexagons and sketches so that prompt will be a good one for me. I hadn't seen Maggie's layout. It is so beautiful - I may have to scraplift that one.

Thanks for all the prompts. It's going to be fun!

I'm new to this challenge but am looking forward to playing along. I've been doing much more shopping lately than actual scrapping. This should help push me along to use some of my awesome supplies I've been accumulating!

Welcome sorfammom!

We got home from Boston late last night and my daughter has decided to go to Boston University in the fall! I'm so proud of her!

Hoping to scrap today besides the usual grocery shopping and laundry.

Here's a couple from me:


4th Grade - Uses prompts 1 and 3

1st Phone - Used prompt 1. The scan on this is awful because of the badges. IRL everything is straight and the background paper is black rather the the greenish tint it has.

TFL!

Hi ladies! Sorry I have been such a stranger! I have not scrapped since CHA! I made up for it a little this week as we were on vacation, at home!

I have a whole bunch of los, but not that many prompts this time around...

Not sure if these count as a Two Peas Challenge because it isn't the most recent Glitter Girl Challenge, it was her Layouts within Limits so you decide The challenge was to create 3 los by choosing your supplies to make a kit and then choose 3 sets of photos and put all 3 los together without going outside you kit. Tricky but fun!

LO 1: Mothers Day at Taste of Maine (prompts 4&5)
LO 2: Ooh La La! (prompt 5)
LO 3: Love My Girl! (prompt 5)

Two Los from Glitter Girls latest challenge: 2 for the work of 1

LO 1: Swinging Tree (prompts 4&5)
LO 2: Spring Has Sprung (prompt 5)

A New Culinary Experience (prompt 5)

Party On! (prompts 4&5)

Thanks for looking! I am going to try and take a look at all the los here later today!

Happy Scrapping!!

Hope everyone's weekend has been scrappy!

I've been playing around with Shimelle's "layouts within limitations" process and really liking it. I haven't done the full three layouts with the 3, 2, 1 photo choices but I've been using her ideas to pull paper for LOs I plan to work on through the week and it's made things so much easier! This morning I got up at 8am, pulled papers for two LOs and had the first one set up with layering and photo all within an hour - amazing for me! Then I came home later in the day, finished it off and worked on a second one from start to finish. Just awesome.

So, here's the one I started this morning - fits with challenge #1 (arrow paper): BIG bench, little KIDS

Here are the layouts I got done this weekend. First on is for prompts 1, 4 & 5, used a journal card for the 213 in 2013 challenge. I used some old rubons on this one & am debating going back & finding a place to add a mickey punch that I didn't think about until later. So Close

Second one is for prompt 3 - Resort

Third one is for prompts 1 & 5, used several journal cards for the 213 in 2013 challenge. I also used an old piece of Club Scrap paper for the background. Chevy's

Hi ladies! Just checking in! Gosh, what a busy week! I haven't even had time to sit down and look at everyone's submissions . On the bright side I have selected photos and papers for a l/o! I am hoping to get in some good scrapping time over the weekend.

Happy May Day, everyone!

So, with the day off today, I got up at a reasonable time, pulled a bunch of supplies and spent whole day scrapping! Got three layouts done, although I'm going to go back and tweak one a bit more, as I was feeling a bit brain dead by the end and I'm not entirely satisfied with my embellishment clusters (especially after watching Glitter Girl today).

For prompts #5, GG challenge (213 in 2013): So Thankful
