My Layout Needed a Redo ~ Does Yours?/Prize

Did you ever have a layout that you did really quick for a challenge or a last minute project? Well I did and here is how it turned out. UGLY I tell ya! I don't know what I was thinking when I created this layout. The only challenge was to use 10 of the same item on a layout. The colors don't even match the picture. I picked this picture because I just love it with her eyes closed. Yes, I did get prettier pictures of Emma and will scrap them as well, sometimes you have to scrap what makes you smile. The only thing is, this layout didn't make me smile, it made me miserable. SBO was having a scrap weekend online, so I chose to have a redo challenge since I really needed to redo this layout because I hated it so much. lol

With the help of my cousin, Kelly and her cricut, we came up with this design ~

I love this layout and it truly makes me SMILE! Do you have a layout that needs some extra love, attention or needs to be redone altogether? If so, Redo your layout and put the link to the galley of the before and after pictures in the comment area of this post by midnight July 31 and I will randomly choose a winner for a special prize.

H{ippity} Hop Monday! First for June

It's H{ippity} Hop Time again! The first one for June and my second! I like committing to the hop, it forces me to take my new stamps out and try new things. This card is made with "A Moment In Time" stamp set and "A Bit of Burlap" from the {ippity} Spring 2010 Collection. I think I may give this card to my husband for our anniversary in August.

My Frugal Friday Tip for SOS

"I am tired of misplacing my loose buttons. I know I must have plenty of storage spaces, I think too many is the problem. lol I like to see what I have instead of hiding things in drawers and containers. I am very bad at labeling my storage. Each month I throw away a few medicine bottles when I refill hubby's medicine. I thought to myself "what a waste!' I decided to alter these containers to store my buttons in. All I did was find some fun Sassafrass paperscraps to use, ink up the edges with my brown stazon ink and adhere it with glue dots. I also punched out some paper for the top of the containers and on one I added ribbon with glue dots. I want to make 6 total. His medicine comes in all different size bottles so it works out great for me! Do you have any household items that you alter for storage? How about a Frugal Friday Tip? If so, email us at scrappinpsycho@live.msn we would love to put your creation on our blog."
