Hangin' Out - Challenge

With only a few hours to go, this will probably be the last challenge I get to complete before the submission cut-off from Shimelle's scrapbooking weekend (actually, last weekend but she held the prize options open until today.)

The challenge was to use a stamp you rarely exercised.  For me that is an alpha stamp.  I knew better when I bought alphas, but sometimes I just couldn't resist the cute font.  I'll stamp my titles, I'd say to myself and rarely do.  So I selected Fun Alphabet from Inkadinkado.  It is a cute set, the letters are a bit large.  They are perfect for coloring.

As usual, I used the photos for my color scheme and chose 4 papers to do a blocked border.  Along the way I stumbled across this new paper from Basic Grey Plumera collection with the little hexagons. I'd originally bought it for the lavender 'b' side. It had just the right colors I'd already selected.  What are the chances?  I used many different Stampin' Up! markers to color in the stamped letters.

My page celebrates the relaxation of just hanging around the house with friends.  Their dog was caught napping on my yoga mat which I'd brought along to do my physical therapy exercises.  She looks so Zen.

Even though the time is almost up, I do plan to do one more challenge from Shimelle - the one where you scrap a lousy photo.  I have one of Lenny and I that I did with the self-timer that is really out of focus.  Only I could take a self-timed photo and get it out of focus on a point and shoot camera.  :-)

Anyway, hope you have a nice Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your page is a wonderful remembrance of a beautiful weekend, and you've inspired me to do one of my own. Can't wait to do it again!

  2. Very nice page. Great assortment of colors.

  3. This is a great layout :)
    I love that your scrapbook the every day. I never seem to even get to the big events and keep planning on doing more personal layouts.

  4. That is a very eye-catching title! Love it! I don't use my alphabet stamps very often because I really love my Thickers. I should give this a try.
