Challenge #178 - Toys

Welcome back for our next challenge. Michele here, and I'd like to see you create something with TOYS!

Challenge #178 - Toys

My daughter goes through phases where she loves a certain kind of toy. Recently it's been LOL Surprise so I photographed each doll to include on this layout.


So fun, I'm really glad I documented that. I'll have to remember to do this with her next collection of toys!

Let's see what the other Paper Girls have created to inspire you:


Karrie
This reminded me of when we were camping and the boys used the 
woodchip pile like a sandbox to play with their toys!


And now...congratulations to the winner of Challenge #177:

Challenge #176 - Your Favorite Drink!

Good Morning!! It's May, and for most of us in the US, there are still a few weeks left of school. As a teacher, I am running on coffee. This challenge is PERFECT to share my love of everything java. For this challenge, create something that celebrates your love of beverages! It could be coffee, tea, orange juice, wine, you name it! Create a card, layout, or like my mini notebook below, something off the page.
Mini notebook (Heidi Swapp) with a few older stamps (Gossamer Blue - retired).
 A simple stamped cup (Concord & 9th), watercolored in two different color combinations.

Michele
I used a stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps to create this card.

Here is my planner page for July showing a fun event we attend centered around beer and wine.
(Not my favourite drink every day mind you! haha)

Challenge #175 - Typography

Hey everyone! It's Erica hosting the latest challenge and I thought I'd mix it up a little bit, usually when we make a card or a page we think of the images we are going to use but this time I want you to think solely about the words. So this theme is Typography. Make letters or numbers the focal point or background of your project. It could be the title of a scrapbook page of a nice large sentiment on your card. Let's see those letters! Here is my project, I have some graduations coming up so I made a set of graduation cards.

Next, we would like to introduce our guest designer for our challenge, Bobbi!
"As a wife to an engineer and mom to a college kid,  I balance my technical days (aerospace manufacturing compliance training!) with creative nights and weekends.  I work mainly with paper, but consider myself an equal opportunity crafter!"

Here is her beautiful project for our challenge this week:

Challenge #173 - April Fools!

Hello, Karrie here to kick off our next challenge! In honour of April Fools! would like to see a joke,  prank, or just about anything funny you can come up with.

We would like to introduce our guest designer this week, Cheryl Even, and her fantastic project inspired by our theme! 
"Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for The Paper Girls Challenge Blog.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart Greg for 27 years and am a SAHM to four wonderful kids, Adrian, Elliot, Brianna, and Oliver Angel. I’ve been scrapbooking ever since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 21 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! Although my life is really busy with raising four children, leading a women’s Bible study, and singing and playing guitar on the worship team at church, I usually find time every week to sneak away to my craft room to scrapbook or create the occasional card, and then I post my completed work on my blog, https://evenmorescrapping.blogspot.com/, where I also post scrapbook sketches I have designed.
I didn’t have any April Fools pictures, but these photos of my kids fooling around at the zoo seemed like a great match for the theme! I used a sketch I had created, and had lots of fun decorating the little circles."


Thank you SO much, Cheryl for joining us!!! Please be sure to stop by Cheryl's blog and see more of her beautiful creations.

Now here are projects from other members on our design team: 

Here's mine about what a clown our grandson has always been.
Keeping in clown theme design with harlequin checks and a bowtie.

Challenge #172- Under the Sea

Hey there everyone! It's Erica here with the newest challenge on PGCB. Here in North America there has been crazy weather and I thought it would be fun to have a sea themed challenge. So the challenge is Under the Sea. This is a great time to use those beach pictures that you haven't scrapbooked or some of the fun stamps you've been itching to use.
