Many 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. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

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 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,
