Friday- "Free To Have Fun!!"

Ever wonder if you're more like ketchup or mustard? LOL! Now you can find out!

What Condiment Are You?

I am apparently:

You are ketchup! Ketchup goes well with anything: pretzels, French fries, Chips Ahoy cookies, you name it. Thus, you get along very well with others and are without a doubt very popular. Also, ketchup is filled with sugar, so you tend to be very sweet to others.

Take the quiz and tell me which condiment you are for an easy 5 FRIENDZ POINTZ! Post which condiment you are in the forum in this thread!!

I'm waaaay younger than that!!!LOL} I "hid" my journaling strips by making a flap with my photo mat.

June Girlfriend Of The Month Announcement

I'm so excited to announce our June GFOTM!! And the winner is..............................................drumroll pleeeeez..............................
Joyce Casaldi (aka Ashjoy)!!
She earned an astonishing 430 FRIENDZ POINTZ this month!!!
Here's what she had to say about herself:

I’m a stay at home wife and mom. I’ve been blessed to have married my best friend and we have a beautiful 16 year old daughter.
I started scrap booking in November of 2007 when I thought my Dad would enjoy a scrapbook for Christmas. When he opened the scrapbook, the look on his face (and tear in is eye) brought tears to all of our eyes. This just fueled my eagerness to learn more about scrap booking and I’ve quickly learned that scrap booking is much more than a hobby but an addiction!
In January my husband gave me an early Birthday present of the Cricut Expression and I have enjoyed several challenge swaps, LO swaps and a 3 wonderful secret sisters. I have also begun stamping and am an avid collector of much paper and ribbon! I think I am too new to have developed a style, but I sure do enjoy doing what I do!
Thanks for the inspiration and friendship here at Scrapfriendzy!

Here's a sample of some of here work:

Congratulations, Joyce! we are so happy to have you here at ScrapFriendzy!

Thursday- Free To Speak- Challenge #1

I am excited about the fun things planned for the July Freedom Friendzy!! We have already had 2 awesome challenges & examples! I can't wait to get started on creating them!
Today we are celebrating, {Freedom To Speak}!!!! So I want to challenge you to create a Layout entitled......."I Believe....," and I want you to list at least 3 things that you believe!

My example has a pic of me & things I believe about me, BUT since we already have a challenge to do a page about ourselves, if you don't want to do another one about you, you could do (what you believe about your kids, your job, your vacation,your family, etc.) You get the point! Just be creative! I personally wish I had created more pages about myself & am working on a BOM! You won't regret it!


Anyway here is my example. Have fun & get to scrappin'!!
