Hi! I'm so excited to bring you our new featured blog here at Green Tangerines. Each Saturday night I'll be posting some of the great things that we do here during Scrappy Hour and other events that we have like the one we're having tonight. It's a "Live from Green Tangerines" post that will feature people, ideas and even projects from Scrappy Hour.
This weekend we are having our annual Fall Retreat Weekend "Scrap in the City". What a fabulous time we're having! Fun decorations, delicious food and tons of time to scrapbook. All this while following a theme from the hit television show "Sex in the City". Don't tell Kelly, but I'm just refering to it as my "Launch Party". I just love all of the projects and inspiration that you find here on Saturday nights and tonight is no exception.
To add to our fun we presented our guests with a couple of challenges and they did a fabulous job. The picture above is from Lisa Dones. The challenge was to create something using initials from each of the four characters. That meant everyone had to use something that started with a "C" for Carrie, an "S" for Samantha, a "C" for Charlotte and an "M" for Miranda. Lisa used "C"ardstock, "S"tickers, "C"hipboard letters and "M"etal brads to create this simple and fun layout of her son Anthony. I think she did a great job of incorporating the elements to highlight her pictures.
We're getting ready to wind down from our day that featured Waldorf salad, NY Strip steak with mashed potatoes and baked apples for dessert and a couple of fun challenges. We hope that if you can't join us in person for the next Scrappy Hour you'll take them time to check the blog to grab some inspiration and see what we're up to.
If you like the idea of challenges, be sure to check the blog on Tuesdays for a weekly challenge from me. Starting on October 18th I'll present Tuesday's with a Twist. I will post up a challenge that can be anything from using a specific product or color to using a sketch or even something fun like a card or quick gift idea.
Thanks for checking in and hope to see you at a Scrappy Hour soon!
