A couple of scraplings...

You still have a couple of more days to play in this week's TSG Challenge! Not only is there a $5 TSG Gift certificate available, but you could also become our featured challenge participant for the Trendsetting Spotlight!

Friday is here can you believe it?? We in the United States have a long weekend because of Labor Day on Monday and I gotta tell you.... I SO need a long weekend lol! We leave to go camping late this afternoon and I am really looking forward to it. There is just something about being outside in a beautiful place with no tv, no distractions, and just being with the people you love :)

The challenge on SCS today was to make a scrapling. I looooove these cute little cards ever since Alicia from Sheetload of Cards introduced them to me when There She Goes hosted the May e-zine. For some reason, I was in a pink, black and white kinda mood when I made these. I love how these colors look together, so rock and roll ;)

For my first scrapling I used the new mini set Ice Cream. This set is so much fun to color, cut and layer! The background on the front of the card was created using the sentiment that comes with the set.

The second scrapling uses a combo of THREE of the new minis! I used Polka Dot Blooms, Flourish and Everyday Greetings. What is so great about all of the mini sets (or even all of the TSG Stamp sets in general) is that they coordinate so well together, even if the 'style' is different. I think this scrapling is my favorite from all of the ones that I have ever made!

I hope that you all have a wonderful and safe weekend!
