Hooked On Fishing ~ Practical Scrappers Basic Shape Challenge ~ CHOSEN AS A FAVORITE OVER AT ANOTHER FREAKING SCRAPPY CHALLENGE!!! MY FIRST PUBLICATION IN A MAGAZINE!!


Hi everyone!  I want to thank you all for the thoughts and prayers you sent me and my family during my Dad's lengthy illness..  Even though it was very sad when he passed away a couple of weeks ago, I know he's not suffering anymore...  I love you Dad and you will remain in my heart forever!!!  

It's taking me a little while to get back into scrapping since we returned home..  It has been hard for me to stay focused.  But as most of you know, scrapping is good therapy, so this week I'm going to try and do a little scrapping everyday..  I do have a layout to share with you for the Practical Scrappers Basic Shape Layout Challenge.  As you can see the shapes I used are - a square (12 x 12); some circles; some rectangles; and ovals...  I had a lot of fun adding the fish(ing) stickers to this layout..  I think it gives it a whimsical touch and I think Savannah will get a kick out of...

Here are a few close ups...

Here are a couple of 3-D stickers from Hobby Lobby that I thought would look great on this page.  You can also see some of the Martha Stewart Cherish Border and Corner and some of the Martha Stewart Bangle Charm Trim....


More of the Martha Stewart Punched Border and Corner, Sticker Letters,  and some Twine for the fishing line...


Martha Stewart Punched Borders and Trim, and 3-D Bass and Fly stickers..



Martha Stewart Punched Border and Corner, Martha Stewart Bangle Chain Trim, cute 3-D Tackle Box sticker, and Flowers, Ferns, and Butterflies from Brenda Walton Borders - K&Company.

This layout will qualify for a few other challenges...

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge ~ Spring Break Memories
Our Creative Corner ~ Tic Tac Toe (I went diagonal with Flowers, Stickers, Blue)

The added string is perfect and gives it a real touch. The stickers don't look like stickers as you made them work in your layout.

Thanks for playing "more then one circle challenge" at For Fun Challenges. Hope to see you tomorrow when our new challenge is posted.
