Scrapbook in a Box - White Elephant

This box is for a game I'm playing with the SW's. We all make a box (black/white and one other color) then in the order we signed up we get to pick another's box, but if our box gets stolen from someone else who is choosing then we have to pick again, fun game. Well here's my box I used Doodlebug paper on this.

Birthday Card

I made a quick birthday card for my buddy Amy ... hope she likes it, it's pretty simple. The flash washed out the color but think of it as a nice dark green olivy kind of haha.

I have been scrapping sort of, I'm working on a mini book about my trip to Virginia Beach, so that should be coming up soon, hopefully!

So there was a challenge to not lift anything, not use black and also another challenge to scrap your best friend, and it couldn't be a pet, relative or your significant other. Sure enough I had the perfect person and I did two in one challenge again. My BFF (Best Friend Forever) Javier, I've known him for too many years and he knows me better than anyone, hell sometimes I think he knows me better than my brothers sometimes. So here's the page I cam up with:

June SS

So I keep joining secret sister cause I'm just a sucker and it gives me a reason to go shopping at least once a month haha. Not only do we have to send something worth ten bucks but we also have to alter something. I made this paper bag album (my first attempt not using a kit (Bo Bunny kit that is)) for my SS it's from the Ontario, Ca Expo that all the girls went to. Even me all the way from New Jersey went haha. Anyways one of the girls, who swears she doesn't scrap at all she just shops during the crop we were given a comp book to alter and the best one would get a prize. Sure enough she decorated the outside but then started doing a comic strip on the inside of our meeting of one of the girls we didn't like. It was just halarious. My SS loved it and has been dying to scrap it so I thought i would try for her, here's my attempt:

Baby Shower Book Gift

So I was at this shower for my cousin's kid this past weekend and my father so graciously commited me to making her a book about her shower... i hate having to do things I didn't ask or want to do but whatever, I made a quick and simple book for her ... Here are the pages:

She's having a boy so obviouisly blue and green and I have this Magnolia Stack Paper so I figured what the hell, why not hehe. I think it turned out pretty good for it being something I really didn't want to do.

Altered Jewelry Box

I altered this for my friend who turned 16 yesterday. She loves pinks and browns so I thought it would be perfect to use the BG Blush line that is just adorable. I could have done more with this I'm sure but it was a last minute decision and I think it turned out pretty well. It was also the first time I used mod podge. It was kind of fun using it hehe, I am definitely going to try to get into altering more stuff. But right now I'm working on a baby shower mini scrapbook that my father committed me to without asking, got to love the fam!

This is the front/side/top

Here is the back/side/top

It's not 100% perfect ... but honestly who does a perfect job their first try. Not I that's for sure, but it is adorable and she loved it, so that's all that really mattered.
