Happiness is playing along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge … this month and every month. The August 1st challenge is to scrap about a pet from your youth, or a fave animal or zoo trip. The sketch challenge on the 15th is also worth playing. You have until 10 pm on the 31st of August to play along with both challenges.
And speaking of sketches, I played along with sketch 222 over at Creative Scrappers. Our designer Chiqui Gutierrez is also designing over there, so I’d thought I’d pay a visit and try out their challenge. I flipped sketch 222 and placed my elements on a diagonal and here is my result, using Scenic Route paper. This layout features our daughter Nikki Pennington:
Ever since we did the layouts for Scrapbookers Anonymous‘ July challenge, I seem to be cranking out one after another monochromatic layout, lol!! Their challenge this month was to scrap mainly in one colour, with maybe a little splash of another colour …

Now here is my take on it, featuring our daughter Stephanie Pennington:
I used Scenic Route Garden Grove (the jazzy jacquard black and white) and Making Memories Varnish Brocade (die cut) and some papers from my stash for this layout.
Don’t forget to hop on over to my new challenge blog another freaking scrappy challenge … to leave a message if you want to be part of the guest design team for the first challenge (debuting 30 July). We will be looking for a more permanent design team after the first challenge is out.
