Long Overdue Challenge Update!

Me and my mom have been working through the challenges in Elsie Flannigan's book we are having a great time with it but we have fallen behind. First Mom went on vacation and then I just fell behind, I let life get in the way of my scrapbooking! But now after some time away we are getting back on track!

Ok so one of the challenges was to create a mini book about quotes and phrases you use often. This is a tough one because I communicate with a lot of people using movie quotes so I have a lot of stories I want to tell for this one and since my mom is one of the people I talk to using quotes she has a lot as well! We each did a couple of layouts in this book and will be going back to it from time to time to add to.

Here are my mom's awesome pages! These are great stories and could very easily turn into pages for my own book!

Here are my pages - they tell two stories that are special to me.

Then the next challenge was to use stitching particularly around a focal point. I missed the mark a little on this one and just used stitched flowers. Both me and mom used rubons though we would both like to do actual sewing on our pages sometime.

My mom's pages of course are awesome! Makes me really wish I was with my family that night!

My page is a story I've been wanting to tell for a few years. Our Dead Flower Anniversary may not sound very nice but it is a cute story and an anniversary I remember fondly!

Now here's hoping it doesn't take quite as long for the next challenge to be up and running! I will be talking to my mom about a due date tonight! Stay Tuned!!
