Here's a peek at the layouts I made. The gallery will be posted tomorrow, I believe.
I will share my layouts in a future post.

So I made this page for our challenge this week over at How Much Is Too Much? as a tribute to my favorite tea. I used the beautiful Noel Mignon kit called Seaside Cottage.

Here are a few detail shots. I just love that Pink Paislee rub-on border that came in the kit!
I also used a rub-on from the same set to adorn the journaling spot:
Something neat that Scrap for a Cure does is include something special that's exclusive to their kit. French Kiss came with this adorable yoyo flower:
They also include in their kits what they call a "Lagniappe"--a little something extra. This kit came with some Shimmerz Spritz, which was so fun to play with, some pretty cherry-colored stamp ink, and some fun red envelopes, perfect for tucking some Valentine love notes into! What I find most wonderful about Scrap for a Cure is their mission of giving back. Every quarter, they choose a charity, and donate five percent of their sales to that charity. This quarter's charity is Covenant House, an organization that provides shelter, food, and care to homeless children.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to join up with Scrap for a Cure's design team this month!

I used Webster's Pages 6 x 6 mini-pages to make my tag. That's my husband and me on our wedding day in 1981! Here are some close-up shots I took as I was making my tag. You can find detailed instructions at SNR, in the forum, under Classes, Events & Swaps. If you go there, you'll also be able to see the tags other staffers made.
And here's the layout I made. Farzad always acts goofy when I get the camera out. And when I ask him to stop and look handsome, here's what he gives me:
Over at How Much Is Too Much?, our last challenge was called 20/20. We had to use 20 patterned papers and 20 pieces of metal. I was scratching my head at the 20 patterned papers part until it occurred to me to make one of those fun little banners I've been seeing a lot lately. Here's the page I made:
I hate how metal scans! Here are some detail shots. I really love Stewart Superior's Memory Mist--they spray on in really vivid color.
I picked up these We R Memory Keepers metal letters for CHEAP at Ross a while back and thought they were perfect for this page--painting metal cars and all. This shot only shows part of them, but you can see they're silver and not the black they appear in the scan.

As a teacher, I have to admit to doing the happy dance, even though we'd already used up our snow days. Two more snow days from this monster storm that dumped almost 30 inches of sparkly white stuff in my yard.
Now they're calling for another 12 - 20 inches tonight into tomorrow! They've called off school for the rest of the week. I'm going to bury myself in my scrap room for the next few days and play, play, play. Nothing like two winter breaks in one year!
I don't know if I'll be doing a happy dance when we're still going to school in July!
