2 Challenges in One!!!

Hello everyone, hope your week has been wonderful!!! I am feeling much better and have created some LO's that I am extremely happy with this past couple of weeks! I just want to share this LO with you all...for me this is a very fast LO!!
Less than 8 hrs! I found a new blog scrap challenge....
The are called Scrap{a}Tale they had this challenge on their which was called Recipe Ingredients...Check them out! But I actually incorporated a challenge from over at Deb's Creations from Theresa You had to use a Monogram and the words {is for}! So My title was "L is for Love Story"
Check out the other participants at Deb's Creations March Challenge Album for Theresa's challenges

I used the Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters range to create this LO!! And the Recipe Ingredients requirements were
3 Photos (2 had to be slanted)
3 PP's (1 needed to be cut out - see my flower)
2 Plain cardstock - Grey & Black
1 Chipboard piece- Hand cut heart which I then painted and glittered
Glitter - on my painted black heart & Bling on my Flourish
Rub-ons- Forever and the lil white hearts
Alpha's for title - "L"
4 Hearts - There's actually more than 4 but ahh anyways!
4 Buttons
Ribbon - handmade flower
Transparency - Love Story
I Memorabilia - Is the quote that is on my painted black glittery heart.
The quote is "This Day I Will Marry My Friend, One I Laugh With, Live For, Dream With Love" this was on our Invitation and on our place cards!
Paint on Black painted heart

Had so much fun doing this LO, everything fell into place for this LO!! My mojo is allowing me to create so many LO's at the moment! Thanks to all the inspiration that I visit in Challenge blogs link on the RHS panel of my blog! Be sure to check them out!!!

I want to Thank all of my visitors to my blog...You make my day when I receive a comment about one of my LO's! As most of you know I do struggle with my self confidence in regards to my scrapping abilities. All of you give me kind encouragement to keep scrapping and if I don't like how it is looking I have a couple of beautiful people whom I know that I can bounce ideas off of and they always allow me to finish my LO that I am completely happy with! Luv Shaz xoxo


  1. Hey Shaz

    This is Tracy from Scrap{a}Tale - thanks so much for joining our challenge on our new blog ...

    Your LO is absolutely gorgeous ... just between you and I, I don't know that I could have produced an LO for this recipe - way too much stuff for me ... tee hee ... but you did sooooo well .....

    Good luck for the RAK and hope to see you at our Castle soon ...

    Love, Tracy

  2. Gorgeous as always sweets.. Popping over to Scrapatale now.. Looks fun :) xxx

  3. Shaz this is beautiful!!
    Hugs xx

  4. Hi Shaz! how are you? Just want to let you know that everything you feel about self confidence is normal for everybody. The hardest person to please is ourselves. We are our worst critics thats because we always want ourselves to be the best and the #1. But thats life!

    But with the help of our friends and our family, they provide us with a different view of things that we dont see. They see the real us, the beauty and meaning of us. Thats is why often we need them to enlighten us with some stuff.

    That being said, and as your friend, I will tell you honestly (not just being polite :P), that you create lovely, personal and creative LOs. You inspire people like me to keep on going despite all the challenges we face.

    Just keep smiling, take a look of your LOs and I assure you, you will see your heart on it.

    Love lots
