Ad this

So this week I decided to play along with the challenge over at Ad This. Here is the ad were we given, and a technique was to make a list and use a different font for each item on the list. If you've never seen this site you must check them out. Very cool and a different take on scrapping in general.

My results. I always wanted use this Live out Loud paper from Reminisce, but never could figure out how. I add Rhinestones to the outside edge because the ad reminded me of old Hollywood and the glam so that means Bling. I also had to use some stickles on the title and the little MS butterflies. (PS I still love that punch and now that spring is here you, look out.) This prompt was perfect. I hope everyone likes this page. I really do.

Does anyone have any suggestions for Kit clubs? Has any used LRS before?

I'll leave you with a quick photo of my little guy watering the grass for the first time. He loved it.

More than love the LO!!! You soooo rocked that challenge!

As for kit clubs, I've tried several. Scarlet Lime has been one of my favorites. It tends to always have a girly feel to it. Of course, Studio Calico is very popular right now. I've also tried Simply Obsessed and Paper Posies. Little Red Scrapbook has always been on my list to try, but haven't yet. I follow the blogs of several on their design team. One of my faves is Kristii Lockart ( Can you tell I'm a kit club junkie??? lol! I don't think you can really go wrong with any of them. The best part is getting the chance to try a bit of brand new product, sometimes before it is even released. Let me know if you decide to try one and what you think of it.

Thanks for the heads up with the problems posting comments on my blog. I'll see if I can figure out what's up.

Have a great weekend!

This is so great!! What a great take on this challenge, good luck! The topic is wonderful, I love that you added "kissing mom" on his list of daily chores, this really is such a fabulous idea! And it looks great too, it's fun! When I first read you had to use different fonts, I thought that would give a kind of messy look on the LO, but I was wrong, it adds something interesting to the page.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Distressing is actually soooo easy, and it's something I like to do sometimes, but it's not something I would like to do on all my pages. I like the idea of having different styles in my albums, it keeps it interesting...

just loved your take on the ad challenge!!! :)


I'm pretty new to kit clubs as well...and looked around a lot. I finally subscribed to Iamascrapoholic and am happy with them, you get tons of stuff in each kit, even stuff that I'd never think to get on my own. Some bits and pieces always end up in almost all of my LO's.

I'd say keep looking.
