Created a layout of a funny meme (left) and my cat (right) looking a lot
like the meme, LOL!
Since I didn't also have a photo of a dog, I tied the "dog" twist in by
using a sticker that says "The Dog Did It"

We would love for you to add some paper strips to your projects for this challenge.  They can be a full strip or like some of our DT have created, you might want to use them as banners!  You can use a few or use a lot!  Be as creative as you want!  

We can't wait to see what you create!

For my project, I used a variety of St. Patrick's Day paper scraps to create the strips for my project.

#477 Numbers

 


Hello Everyone! So me being me (Tammy)  I got the challenge dates wrong and looks like we have a new challenge today.  The DT has already created their projects so this one is going to overlap the other one by a few days.  One of these times, when I set up the challenges for the new quarter, I'm going to get the dates right....today is not that day..LOL  

 So anyway,  here is our first February Challenge!  I figured since my birthday is on the 11th we would make this one a numbers challenge!  It can be anything you want, as long as there is a number somewhere on your project!  This should be an easy one right!

Let's see what the DT has for you!

Stephanie:

For my numbers challenge, I used pictures of my favorite soccer player; Number 17!





Tammy






Doreen

Numbers: 
My "99 cents Store" receipt
The week number, Week No. 5
The dates, date stamp x 2
The "2023" on my Planner photo

#475 Inspired by a book






Welcome to the next challenge everyone!  I'm sure many of you, like me, have created a reading challenge for the new year!  Our challenge this week kinda ties in with that....we want you to be inspired by a book for this one. 

It could be the cover, the theme, it could be the title, maybe the story or one of the characters.  Be sure to tell us what book and what inspired you when you link up below ok.


Let's see how the DT was inspired by their books!


Doreen

I read 25 books in 2022
My page captures that fact as well as my 24th book read
My goal was 22 

12x12 Traditional Pocket Page layout


I’ve started collecting hiking field guides to use with my adventure buddies.  
This one is inspired by “52 hikes for 52 weeks”



I made two cards - one to represent PADDINGTON BEAR and the other, THE VELVETEEN RABBIT.


Amanda

Every year on Christmas Eve our children receive a new book and new pair of pajamas. This was my son in his first year of this tradition.




My youngest and I have a favorite book series that we started reading when he was a toddler.  I used photos of him and me since it seemed most fitting...
