Catching up on my own challenge

Well, it seems that the consensus was that most or my readers didn't care one way or another whether I wrote in both German and English, so I guess I will keep doing what I was doing.... write mainly in English, but if it is something Stampin' Up Germany specific, I will write in German. Just easier for me.

So, I am catching up on my Scrapstart Challenge. I've been wanting to use up some of my Basic Grey papers. For the first time in a while I am actually looking forward to the new collections, so... some of the old had to go. These LOs are lifts of January 26 and January 19th respectively. I don't usually do two page LOs, but these two, though different sizes, sort of go together.

Supplies: PP Basic Grey "Obscure", Ranger Distress crackle paint, Fancy Pants felt,
Julie Fei-Fan Balzer Stamp, American Crafts Thickers, misc. chipboard, Glossy Glaze, Martha Stewart Glitter.

And, along the same theme, namely NYC, a LO I did for another challenge (over here), called "back to the roots". The challenge was to use only Cardstock, pens, and photos. SOOOOO not what I usually do, but heck, it's not called a challenge for nothing.

So this is what I came up with. Like I said, so not what I usually do, but I like it. Well... I don't hate it. And it works with the picture. But I had to go crazy with lots of different pattern papers right after I did this LO. Will post that one tomorrow. LOL.

Supplies: Cardstock Bazzill, pens: signo uniball, Stampin' Up.

Took the dog to obedience school again. He did really good. Didn't even take food from a stranger. HUGE success for him. Unlike yesterday, when he wasn't happy with his dinner (he has some stomach issues right now, so he only got some rice with buttermilk and medicine) and stole a big piece of the ribs I had made for supper.

That's it for today.
Have a good one.
