Crop layouts, Queen of the Crop, and @jmcofficial and...

The Pimp My Bra crop is over now, and my goodness, there are SO MANY fabulous layouts that were done this weekend!! Check out the gallery HERE.

I didn't get as many challenges done as I had hoped {Thanks Jason ;)}, but I did get three regular challenges done, won 4/5 quickfire challenges {"Make a card... the first one to post their picture wins"}, played bingo, and shopped at 6 of the 7 Blue Light Specials {who can resist Basic Grey at 50% off?? I can't!}

This layout was done for the Audrey Hepburn Challenge - we were challenged to make a beautiful layout using 2 photos, lots of flowers, and either pearls or gems.  I had paper that matched about as perfectly as possible, and inked it to look like rust {the Tsukineko StazOn Rusty Brown is PERFECT for that - matched Jones' rust perfectly!}. Also used a whole package of prima flowers {the cream ones} and a ton of Fancy Pants flowers {the pink ones}. Title letters are thickers, which I inked a little to make them fit a little better. Calender is from Jenni Bowlin, and journal card is from Dream Street Papers. Stamps are a Cinderella set

This layout was done for Jennifer's challenge "My Will". Her son is autistic, so her challenge was to use one of the autism pictures she posted. Many of those pictures incorporated puzzle pieces, rainbows, butterflies, hearts and angels.

I have been wanting to scrap this picture for a while - it was taken last year when we went to Hannibal to see the LST ship. There is a little shop called PuddinHeads which is a mix of antiques and handcrafted things, and very fun to visit and see what's new. I had asked them to sit on the bench outside so I could take a picture.. and they of course, got silly.

AND - *whoohoo* I won the Queen of the Crop!! They did it a little differently this time, instead of counting points, draws were given for completing certain things (a certain number of challenges, the BLSs, etc), so that more people would have a chance to win. Which I think is fabulous! And this time it was me. Woohoo! My prize for that is one of the kits from the store, so I need to check them out and see which one I want. I wish they had more of the Halloween kits! Would love to have another one of those!

So why didn't I get more layouts done this weekend? LOL well, you see, I found out Jason was on Twitter, so have been sucked into that whole thing. It was worth it though - he's tweeted me three times on there. {Yeah, I can see a layout with that too.. LOL} Anyway, he's @JMCOfficial, so if you twitter, and like country music - there ya go. OH and another exciting thing - "Where I'm From" won a songwriters award at the ASCAP awards - it was written by Joe Leathers { @joeleatheres } and Patrick Davis { @PDMusic }. Patrick sings too, and has done a few shows with JMC. He has a great voice too - hope to hear more from him!
