get challenged

I hope you had a great creative weekend, if you haven't entered my giveaway below there is still time! :) I will pick a random winner tomorrow.   I have a few layouts to share that I've made recently, nothing made on NSD but it's all good. I made this layout for fun-new dare and I struggled with our topic but I am glad I hung with it. It is a spin on a line from fight club.

I am happy to be guesting again with the creative type girls, this week's challenge is about empowerment!  I love this topic and truly feel that as women get older they get more empowered because you are more confident and aware with the person you are- you know what you will and will not stand for in life.
products used: studio calico tiny chevron paper; taxi mister huey's ink; heart veneer; black stazon;pen; bull's eye stamp set 
I made this layout for my get graphic challenge for  Studio Calico's NSD Celebration.It's no secret I love to use shapes a lot, so I thought this would be a really fun challenge for others to try as well. I am having so much fun looking at everyone's pages. If you want to partake in the challenge you still have time! :)Post your layouts on the sc blog by May 13th for you chance to win a collection pack from Studio Calico's stash of prizes! 

On this page I misted up stars in different sizes, patterns and textures. I also mixed up my huey's, love how sunshine and taxi look together with passport!

  1. Rockin' layouts, as always, Vee! Oh, and as a Starbucks fan I'm sure you already know...but they are having a promo for happy hour fraps from 3-5pm everyday until the 12th or 13th! I don't even like Coffee, but OhMYWord...quickly becoming addicted to cookie crumble frap! It did help me to stay up and scrap till the wee hours this moring, so I guess my ramble is scrappy related! LOL! Have a beautiful day!

  2. Oh Vee, your work just speaks right to my heart...especially that first layout. Thanks for sharing!! <3

  4. You are unfairly amazing :D I love the Dares. HAve been waiting for the next one.

  5. Oh, Vee! I LOVE these! Especially the page with the wood frame - I LOVE how you used that!!! Keep it up, darling!

  6. Coffee empowers me too ;). I love all the layouts. I need to start looking into doing a 12x12 one of these days. Anyway, I did your "white" challenge for my project life this week. I have it up. (it's not all white though :\)

  7. I love how loose and fun your layouts are. so inspiring to help break out of the grid. mmm coffee. And I agree we do get more empowered and grounded with age. It is a good feeling.

  8. thank you so much for guesting again over at CT, you are awesome!! I LOVE that layout!!
