We were asked to create 3 cards and i had so much fun creating these. Just love using those Buzz and Bloom Denim, Chipboards and Acrylics. For more ideas, go to

Scrap Your Pants Off - Week 1

It's been a long time since I entered a scrapping competition. And it took me days to think and re-think to finally take the plunge considering that mojos were nowhere to be found and most of my scrapbooking stuff is not here with me. I only have a few of my fave papers here with me plus I've done a little shopping online for embellies and other stuff.

I joined Artypants Scrap Your Pants Off Contest. Week 1 challenge is: Create something Old - a material from you stash that is 1 year old, Something New - stuff to be found at the new products section of the store, Something Borrowed - Scraplift a layout from the gallery and Something Blue.

Here is a sneak of my entry....
