With encouragement and help from my friend, Lisa AKA Runswithscissors, I created my blog and did my first post today. I hope you enjoy.
About 5 years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would.

Learning to dive at Camp Poppop 2012
Here's challenge #3 for the Splitcoaststampers Digital Scrapbooking Day Celebration Challenge from Terri (SCS 3Fries) She provided a link to Stampin Up who was celebrating DSDC by giving away 3 free downloads & 50% off some others last week. Terri's challenge was to follow the links & use one of the free downloads. For traditional scrappers she asked us to use chevrons, arrows & great colors. I really had to search for paper with chevrons but I found one in orange in a 6X6 pack from BasicGrey. I thought orange went pretty well with teal which went with the diving photos and a page was born! I decided to mix up the fonts for the titles. I used rub-ons, a die cut, stamped cut out numbers plus one that was printed from Word. I had just purchased the arrow sizzlet from the SU clearance rack...how lucky was that? I wasn't sure how I was going to use the chevrons or arrows but once I got started it just fell in place...thanks Terri for a fun page! I matted the photos & journaling in paper from a DCWV stack. I also downloaded the free digi kits so I can start looking at digi scrapbooking. On to the last challenge #5! I think I'll be able to get them all done by tomorrow night...YEAH!!
Supplies: Paper - SU Taken with Teal CS, DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack (orange), BasicGrey Plumeria (chevron); Stamps - SU Alphablock Numbers; Misc - Autumn Leaves Rub-on Letters, EZ Laser Design Poppop Die Cut, SU Sizzix Sizzlet Curves Ahead,
