Week 27 of Project Life (2013): Butterfly challenge

It's time for another project life challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches! Sometimes these challenges are really hard for me, but this one was super easy!  My girls love butterflies so I always have lots of butterfly everything!

Head on over and play, you have two weeks!

LM#183: Hide and go Leaf

My daughter really wanted me to call this, "Océane found a leaf" and that was all I could think of. I asked my BFF Shelby what she thought and she texted me back "Hide and go Leaf"! Loved it!

This week at Lasting Memories we are asking you to use up your scraps! Isn't this why we all have that 'scrap' drawer? For challenges like this?

I don't know how you store your paper, but I generally buy collections and I like to keep them together right up until the point where I can't use any more or I am just tired of using it!

This is what I have left of the Candy Lane Collection by KaiserCraft.  I'm sure I have enough here for a Project Life Spread so the bag will go back on the shelf!

Other challenges that inspired me this week:
Scrapping with Christine:  Sketch
Off the Rails Scrapbooking: Anything Goes  (I went off the rails PINK!)
Silhouette: Use your Silhouette!

LM#182: Finally

My girl asked for a remote control helicopter for Christmas and for her birthday for the last two years.  The year 2013 was the year her dream came true.  She is pretty good at flying it, but doesn't use it as much as I would have thought after asking for it for so long!  I think she is just waiting to fly it outside when we are without snow....if that ever happens!

At Lasting Memories this week we are asking you to use at least 75% green on  your layout to celebrate
St. Patrick's Day!  I didn't have any pictures for this occasion which is why I chose a Christmas theme.

The following challenge blogs helped me out this week:

Sketch N Scrap #52 - Swing!

Check out the fabulous sketch from Kelly for Sketch N Scrap this week!  I love it!!!!!

I had everything stuck down and then went searching for some title inspiration.  When I found this quote by Natalie Kocsis, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Except I already had everything stuck down!  Well, I set it all up in the silhouette program, put it on the mat, and crossed my fingers and hoped for the best!  It caught on the top pic a bit, but it's ok.  This is the first time I've done a big long title like this, and I think I like it!

I used the Carefree collection from Authentique, because really, how fitting is that!?!

Week 26 of Project Life (2013): Neon!

Thank goodness for Kaisercraft and their Bubblegum Hills collection!  It's full of the beautiful neon colours that Stuck On U Sketches is asking us to use for this project life challenge!

I did another week on a single page, it's really fast and easy but I don't seem to use my cameo as much so after I match this single, I'm fairly certain I am going back to doubles.  I miss spending time with my cameo!

And the March sponsor! Give it up for...

LM #181 - Keep Calm & Swim

I had fun doing this layout.  I'm not a huge fan of being in pictures, but when I showed my daughter who is now 6, the completed page she said, "that's you and me? Thank you!"  I can probably count on two hands the number of photos that I am in with her.  That is going to change.  For all my girls.

At Lasting Memories this week we are using flowers!  I am not big on embellishments, in fact, I had to raid my 8 year old's supplies to even find flowers.

I found inspiration from the following blogs:
Challenge YOUrself:  Keep Calm 
Scrap Our Stash: Layering
Stuck?!: Sketch
Scrappy Friends: Colour challenge
Little Scrap Pieces: Linky Party

Thanks for stopping by!

Are you ready for the new challenge at Lasting Memories? We are inviting you to a war, an alpha war! All you need to do is use at least two different fonts on your layout.  Very easy!

I played along with the following challenges:
Let's Capture Our Memories: Sketch (rotated)
HIMCR #139: Spring Colours
