Favorite time of day, Marks Paper and How much is too much challenges

I had a fun and busy night creating 3 layouts for challenges.
The 1st one is for the Marks Paper Company. The challenge was to create a fall layout using 75% of their paper, so I scrapbooked the kids 1st day of preschool. Nothing says fall to me than Back to School time! I tried Julie's technique of layering her titles.


I embellised a pencil for the page to added an extra school touch.
Supplies: Marks Paper Company patterend paper: Wild Flowers/Log, Snap Dragon/Sun Kissed, Long Walk/ Rouge, County Fair/ Porch Swing
Scenic Route Chipboard alphabet letters, Ranger Walnut ink, Zig Pen, #2 pencil, Craft Essentials Ric Rac
Challenge #2
How Much is Too Much
Challenge is to use...
5 sentences of journaling
4 pieces of chipboard
3 words in the title
2 photo corners
1 shaped paper
This was a fun challenge to do... I am not used to limiting myself to a certain number of items!
Journaling reads: She has been waiting 1 entire year for this day! She is potty trained. She is 3 years old! She has a backpack. She is off to preschool!
Supplies:
Basic Grey Sugared Line
Ranger Walnut ink
Stampin up photo corner punch and paper punch
Me and My big ideas rhinestone
Zig marker
Jillibean alphabeans
Making Memories ledger paper
Tattered Angels glimmer mist
Scenic Route chipboard

Challenge #3
These Are a Few of my Favorite Things
My favorite time of day
"Jammie Time"
Jammie time can be in the morning, all day or at night... honestly I am happiest when I am in my jammies with my kids! I will spend all day in them if I can. My favorite school days are days when my students earn a "jammie day" as well!
I enjoyed adding the glimmer mist to the background to give it a distressed look.
I used Sketch #31 from Inspired Blueprints as my inspiration for this layout!
Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my challenges!
