This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

A little toot for myself here today. I’ve been doing the “New Kid on The Block” contest over at the This is not an easy contest! I was honored when recently I placed during the 2nd round of the contest, the 3rd round, and then in the overall scoring as well. I won several new scrappy kits. There’s a ton of goodies to pick up in their store. So I haven’t actually used my coupons yet. But I’m itching to get over there.

This is the first of the three LO’s I accomplished for the contest:

I didn’t even place in the first round. But I had a ton of fun and created not only a great LO for our memory albums, but also got some wonderful constructive critiques as well!

The second LO was way easy to do. It’s one of the photos from Boo’s park visits. I posted them in my blog earlier. She was the perfect choice for this round in the contest because we were given patriotic kits to work with. How could I not scrap our Boo when those are the color choices? LOL

I placed 10th place using that LO. I tied with a couple of other scrappers too.

Then for the last round we had to do a heritage LO. My MIL gave me some WONDERFUL photos a couple years back and since she was in town this past week – I decided to use one of her family photos for my entry.

I came in 4th place with this LO. 🙂 That made my day. When the contest rounds were over they judges added up all the points and then gave the group our overall placements. There were about 57-ish scrappers that stayed in for all three rounds. I came in 7th place overall. Wahoo, for me!

Okay, I’m done bragging now. Thanks for visiting today. Have a good one!
