October's RR's Challenge

Since the store closed I really haven't been up to doing anything. I love having deadlines, but haven't really been doing any scrapping. So a few of us around the states met up in a group and are doing challenges. A lot of the girls really enjoyed the CJ challenges and so we thought of doing this group. We call it the Rocio's Rockets or RR's. I know crazy girls, but it's fun. Now I'll have two different deadlines each month with the CJ group which we'll start in February and the RR group. I'm excited. The RR's are going to be a challenge each month. To get us started, I posted the CJ challenge I had done awhile ago. Take 3 sheets of pattern paper and use it to the fullest. Leave no scrap behind. So last time I did layouts and cards. This time I created Christmas cards using the Bo Bunny Christmas line. And doing "ala Pattie" cards with the vintage images and such that Bo Bunny had. I ended up creating a baker's dozen of Christmas cards, yep 13 cards. It's had to get a picture of them together, but I tried. Here are my cards:

October's CJ Challenge

This month's CJ challenge was to make something for at least 2 people in the group and mail it to them. I couldn't make up my mind as to who I should pick, so I made one for everyone in the group. When I went to CE, I was really inspired with Tim Holtz Trunk Show. His stuff was so awesome, that I got inspired to do this little frame (he had done one similar at a past CE) and do some patching with his grungeboard paper. I inked every square with different color of distress inks, all of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz Idea-olgy line. Also added some rock candy distress stickles on the prima flowers.

It turned out really cute. As I was using the tokens, I knew that I had to give Patti the "Believe" token as this year is her word for the year. Everone else I wrapped them and randomly sent them. So I have no idea who got what. I ended up with "Artful". Such a cute little frame that I found at Michaels and here is the final project:

Hope everyone enjoys their little frame.

September's Challenge

Ok, so I'm way behind in posting my challenges, see this is what happens when I have no motivation do anything. But I did complete this challenge way before it was due, I finished it on Sept 18. September's challenge was to create something using the colors brown, orange and lime green. I must admit that orange and brown was no issue, it was the lime green that really go to me. But I finished the layout below.

I'll be posting more of my challenges next.
