A fun filled scrappy weekend!

I had a wonderful time this weekend at the Cocoa Daisy Fall Crop. What an amazing group of women that I had the privilege of spending time with and getting to know. The challenges and classes are all still up and you have until November 22 to complete them and be eligible for some great prizes! Check out all the fun here. Make sure you take a moment to head over to Cocoa Daisy and check out our new look, Tricia has had the whole site redone and it looks fabulous!!

Here is a little overview of my contributions to the crop:

My challenge was an "ad inspired" challenge based on this collection of print ads:

This first layout was inspired by the type tree ad,

This layout was inspired by the plate typography ad,

And this layout was inspired by the "terrible yellow eyes" ad,

I did this layout for Ronda's cover me challenge:

I was so inspired by Anna's sketch challenge that a did two layouts:

I also taught an on-line class "stamped & stenciled" with the end result being this layout:

The class will remain up so when you have some time feel free to join in!

Click here for all the details and if you click on the instructors tab you will see a familiar face :). I really hope you can join us for this very special scrapbooking getaway! Oh, and did you notice the little sneak peek at what the new Cocoa Daisy site will look like? Isn't it fabulous!! Can't wait for the big reveal this month!

Cocoa Daisy is also putting on another on-line crop this month, November 13-15. I am teaching an on-line clase "Stamped and Stenciled" Sunday, November 15th at 1pm (EST). Click here for a complete materials list. I hope you can join me! More info on the crop coming soon!

Now speaking of classes, I am taking the Dina Wakley Art Journaling 301 class at Get it Scrapped and I am having so much fun! I am really enjoying stepping out of my "linear" style and just going with the flow! It really does help to get the creative juices flowing when you move away from your comfort zone.

And finally some scrappy goodness using the Cocoa Daisy November kit "Autumn Glow":
