Here are some more layouts and a mini-album I created with the Happy Day collection from Chatterbox. There are still a few items from this collection left in the Scrap 4 Life shoppe, so hurry over there and get yours while supplies last! These encompass the remainder of my assignments as the March Guest Designer at Scrap 4 Life and I really enjoyed being part of such a wonderful team for the month. But, don't forget I also had the opportunity to host a challenge over there so head over to the forum to play!

I had a blast working with these fun-patterned Spring-colored papers and coordinating embellishments. The kit comes with papers from both Fancy Pants and We R Memory Keepers - both are double-sided and very thick. And Debbie did an awesome job, as usual, pulling together embellishments that go well with each paper line. But remember, if your purse strings are a little tight this month, half kit options are also available. So be sure to get your March kit today before they are gone!

I am so fortunate to have earned the coveted guest designer spot for the month of March over at Scrap 4 Life. I received a cute, fun kit full of Chatterbox goodies to work with and had a ton of fun completing the two layouts below. Chatterbox is Scrap 4 Life's manufacturer of the month, which means that they are sponsoring Scrap 4 Life's monthly contest and that the Scrap 4 Life Shoppe is having some awesome deals on Chatterbox products. Check it out here! Be on the lookout for more Chatterbox projects coming from me mid-month!

We all had so much fun this weekend scrappin' up a storm. I was so excited to be able to share the Becky Fleck Sketch she designed exclusively for our crop and it was so neat to see everyone's different takes on it. Check out the Crop Addict gallery to see everyone's layouts based on the sketch which I have posted here along with my take on it.
I shared this simple technique on a few scrappy sites and I thought I'd post it here for you as well. Have fun!
- Gather your supplies: 2 identical copies of your photo, foam adhesive, craft knife and craft mat.
- Take one copy of your photo and using the craft knife, carefully and precisely cut out the object you want to be 3D from the photo.
- Back the cutout photo with foam adhesive.
- Make sure all the backing is off of your foam adhesive and carefully place your cutout photo directly over it's mirror image in the uncut photo.
- The result will be a 3D affect with the focal object coming out of the photo.
- Use your photo on a layout!
The Retro Flashback Crop at Serendipity Scrapbooks was such a blast. The Design Team did such a great job putting everything together and the waves of nostalgia hit as I was scrappin' to the awesome playlist they had put together and working on the retro-themed challenges they arranged. Here are the six layouts I completed for the crop!
