Dare to Get Dirty Challenges

Hello Crafty Friends!


I have been busy today creating a few Scrapbook pages with Rubbernecker Stamps and being inspired by the challenges for the Spiltcoaststampers Fan Club Challenges.

 This first one is photos of my crafty Seattle Pals. Top picture is Sandra, Emily (M) aka Emily (M) aka Stamp Muse, me, and Betsy.  Bottom pictures are Emily again with Judy aka jaydekay, Cindy aka YLM with Heather aka Princessheather and them myself and Betsy again.  I am so hoping to get to Seattle again for another week of craftiness! My mojo could really use it!

This is a Scrapbook page of my little niece Stella, who is a bundle of life and energy!
This was a quick page to put together! I usually to incorporate my stamps to make me own paper.  So much more economical!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!!!
