February A Cherry on Top Manufacturer Challenge

I host a monthly Manufacturer Challenge on ACOT. This month the challenge is to use a manufacturer that starts with the letter E. I used several collections from Echo Park for my sample this month.

A Cherry on Top February 2017 Guest Designer

I was so thrilled when Heidi from ACOT asked me to be the Guest Designer for February.  I chose to use Fancy Pants new collection Sweet Nothings. I was asked to create five layouts/challenges and these are what I came up with:

Challenge #1 Someone you Love


Challenge #2 Something you Love


Challenge #3 Someplace you Love

 
Challenge #4 Love Yourself
 


Challenge #5 Sketch Challenge


I used a sketch I found on Pinterest by Sandy Liles.

Retirement - YAY!!

I finally retired from my former company, Archway Marketing and my last day was December 29, 2016.  My co-workers threw me a retirement luncheon and this was a photo taken during the festivities.  This Fancy Pants Joy Parade collection was absolutely PERFECT.

Welcome to 2017 - a new year of scrappy goodness

My first layout of 2017 is for the A Cherry on Top monthly Manufacturer Challenge that I host.  I chose the word RETIRED (since my official first day of retirement will be January 3rd) where the participants can chose as many manufacturers that start with those letters. 

I used Echo Park "Anything Goes" and The Twinery charcoal twine.  The layout features my granddaughter, Emma at one of her races this past autumn.  She had some bike malfunctions but still managed to finish the race.  I am so proud of her.

I am also honored to be helping with the ACOT 30/30 Challenge hosted by Sara M. and will be posting challenges o every Wednesday during the month of January.

December 2016 Sketches in Thyme

My reveal was December 4th using the fabulous sketch from Cherie Averill.  I used lots of Project Life Cards from the June 2016 Hip Kit Club.  The photo is from Emma's Middle School graduation this past June. I can't believe my granddaughter is now a freshman in high school


November/December Manufacturer Challenge at A Cherry on Top

I host a monthly challenge on ACOT and because this is such a busy time of year, I have given members two months to complete my challenge.  The letter I chose for these months is the first letter of the member's first name, last name, or their ACOT user name.  Since my first and last name start with C - I have used Crate Paper on my layout.
