Pretty Good Month

Today is August 1, and as I look back on the month of July, I have to say that it was an exciting month for me, in terms of scrapbooking news.  Would you mind if I shared my good news with you?  
  • My layout "Zoo ZZZZZZ" won second place at Child's Play Challenges (so watch for my guest designer post there later this month).  
  • My layout "Delicate" won at From Scrappers, For Scrappers.  (I'll be guest designing there in October.) 
  • Furthermore, I was also the random winner at CSI.  My winning CSI entry, entitled "Magic Moment," is one that I have not yet shared on my blog.  I think it's high time I shared it!  So, without  further ado, here it is.
 
Supplies: background paper, alphabet stickers, word stickers, tab stickers, & round sticker from Lily Bee; distressed green paper from Fab Scraps; grey swirl paper & number stickers from My Mind's Eye; quote paper from Graphic 45; grey woodgrain paper from KaiserCraft; fussy-cut paper (used as flower stencil) from Authentique; burlap from Canvas Corp.;border sticker from Doodlebug Design; leaf stickers from Simple Stories; round frame stickers from Basic Grey; stamp & dark green ink from Hero Arts; brown ink from Tsukineko; all other ink from Clearsnap; white cardstock from Pulp; pen from Zig; vintage twine; upcycled admission wristband.

Here are a few detail shots and notes...
 
~the wristband I used to make the banner~


 
~the banner itself~


 
~my journaling box~


 
I saved a scrap of paper that I had used for fussy cutting on a previous project.  I used it as a stencil with various inks to decorate my journaling spot.


 
What could be more fun than lime green burlap!?!


 
I pulled a couple strings out of a burlap scrap and used these strings to turn a round sticker into a floral embellishment.


I hope you liked my "prehistoric page!"  :)  Thanks for letting me share all my good news with you.  I hope that good luck is in your future!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, ladies! If others are also wondering about the Scrap for Help August reveal, Cynthia Llorens had a family commitment that caused a delay. She is planning to post the reveal Friday evening (Brazil time zones).
