It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Inspiration from an Online Crop

Progressive Page Paper Challenge(My Beautiful Granddaughter)

Word Challenge (Quest)

Survey Challenge

Why iScrap Challenge(Yep...that's me)

Color Challenge

Smart Eating Planner

It was nice to finally sit down in my craft room and let the creativity flow..not any great works of art...but a wonderful outlet and preservation of my family photos.

Time in my craft room has been far and few in between since the holiday and felt I needed some inspiration to coax the desire to create from inside.

What better way than an online crop!

iScrap had a fun one this past weekend with many different types of Challenges,games and make and takes.

I managed to put out 3 Digital and 1 Paper Layout,a make and take and 1 Bingo Game.

No where close enough in production to be eligible for prizes,but satisfied with my need to create and preserve the moment.

It was a very productive crop for the iScrap Gallery...many precious memories and fun projects where contributed by the members!

You ladies Rocked!!The one make and take I managed to get done was a Shopping Organizerby VIP Member Nancy Jones.Will be putting it to use to help keep track of the foods my DH can eat...recently diagnosed with Diabetes this past week. This little project should come in very handy and right on time for me.

Thanks to iScrap Team for inspiration and a fun time!!
