A couple of scrappy things, a new bracelet, and a yummy

Managed to get a couple of scrappy things done this week. They were all done for the Scrap Sisters NSD Crop last weekend.

Lilacs was done as a progressive challenge that I posted. I guess it was a litle too intimidating though, because only one person did the challenge. Oh well. I'm really happy with my layout. It's the first one I've done in a while, and I think it is really pretty. Funny thing, though, I never though Nickelback would be such a great inspiration for a frilly, girly scrapbook page. Who knew?

The Anti mojo layout was an idea I had in my mind for a long time. The photo was originally posted on Tim Holtz's blog when he first started his FB and twitter accounts back before the christmas tags.  I made it into a challenge - yet another that was barely touched. Again -  too hard I guess.

This altered card was done for Karen's challenge (alter a playing card). I sanded it, inked it, and covered it with Tim's rock candy crackle paint. added the rest of the embellies and voila.  {Yes. The letters mean something. No. I won't be telling} {this card was chosen as the Pick of the Day for 5.7.10 on Serendipity Scrapbooks}

This is my latest bracelet. They had charms on sale for 1/2 off again at Hobby Lobby, so I stopped to look at them. The snake charm got me to thinking about the Ghost Trappers companions.. ended up finding several more companion charms. The bracelet isn't finished yet. I found gemstomes that look like Chrono Fragments (another part of the game) though I realized the color isn't right. So I need to check back at Joann's tomorrow when I go  (to order the Everyday Paperdolls Cricut cartridge for $40) and see if they have any blue-ish ones. Or aurora borealis looking ones. They will go between the companion charms.

Made these for dessert the other night.. individual strawberry shortcakes. And ooooh they were YUMMY.
